    Overall the food isn't bad but it isn't great. There are many options if you do not have many dietary needs. If you're vegan for example the meal plan will be almost useless for you.

    Most of the time food here is average, you learn quickly what is make well and what is lacking. Some things made are absolutely delicious and it's obvious that they put effort into making them while others are less than satisfactory.

    A few years ago, Pace redid their entire caf�������©, and I have no real complaints about it. If you get sick of constant caf food, there are many restaurants in the area included on our meal plan.

    Pace tries REALLY hard to make their food the best they can, but I think theres some buget issues there. There is only one cafe but the student body is so small that it only really gets crowded during mid week lunch times. It has a sushi station, a grill station (hambugers, fries, fried chicken, omlettes etc.), a sandwhich staion, a pasta and pizza station, a mexican station, a salad bar, a dessert bar at nigh, tons of prepared foods, lots of drinks, and a hot food station that changes every day. Go for breakfest its the best!

    There's one cafe, and you get tired of the same food over and over again, but it's not awful. I've had some great chicken dinners at the cafe. And their mac and cheese is to die for. They're working on getting more vegetarian and vegan options. There are several gluten-free options as well. We also have our own Starbucks in the cafe that you can use your meal plan money at. There is a make your own pizza and pasta station, mexican, sushi, a grill (it makes everything from breakfast sandwhiches to mott sticks to burgers and grilled cheese), a salad bar, and soup bar, and a bread and bagel station. There are also waffle makers. It's not the best school cafeteria, by any means, but it has cafeteria. And you're in New York City, you're gonna wanna go out to eat anyway.

    This is college, not a five star luxury restaurant. The food is not the best, but Starbucks is the best about Pace meal plan.

    Getting better every year. It's relatively consistent, and they have flex dollars now that let you eat out at the restaurants around the school as a part of your meal plan.

    Majority of the snacks in Miller Hall and the Kessel Student Center can be overpriced, but some of the food is worth the money.

    There is a greek life here but it isn't as important as it is in other schools. The frats and societies don't run the school and it isn't a must to join.

    Greek life is kind of non existent but it's a great way to socialize with people who actually want to have fun and experience the fun side of life. Theres only about 4 really big soroities and frats, and a couple more that have a really small following. No houses of any Greek life, but it is one of the best ways on campus to have an active social life and everybody is really cool.

    Being a city school, Pace's Greek Life is not as strong as some bigger universities in more suburban areas. It does exist, though. There are several sororities and fraternities and they are very welcoming to new members. They also hold many events that any Pace student is invited to, not just Greek members. If you're extremely interested in Greek Life, Pace may not be the place for you. If Greek Life isn't your top priority, but you could be interested in it, then Pace will set you up.

    Greek life at Pace is a joke unless you're an AKA. I'm not an AKA, but it's the only one that I know should be taken seriously just because of its history.

    On NYC Campus, greek life is not a big thing. Greek associations sometimes try to raise money for non profit organizations but they are not very popular. However, I heard that the ambiance is pretty cool inside their groups.

    There are Sororities and Fraternities that thrive well at Pace but there are no houses specifically for them.

    Not very strong here (at least on the New York City campus) since we don't have any Greek houses and I never saw the appeal of being in a sorority. A lot of my friends are involved in it though and have loved their experience!
