    The cafe is horrible and very little healthy, vegan, or vegetarian options. The Starbucks is nice though. The workers can be really rude sometimes and often a majority of stations are close, theres no point in going towards the end of the week because they'll be out of everything.

    Dining on campus could be better. Some of the cooks are a bit stingy and sometimes rude but Starbucks on campus makes everything better.

    There's nothing special about the food sold at the school's main cafeteria (CAF 101). However, several restuarants around the area accept Pace 'Flex Dollars', which is included in every student's meal plan.

    -many different options within the cafeteria but students are also offered flex dollars accepted at food places near or around pace. - fully functional starbuck in the cafeteria, which is open extra late during finals.

    pace university is catered by chartwells, which is known to satisfy those who they serve. there are a variety of options from which students and staff can choose. as stated on the website, from burgers to sushi and fresh smoothies, pace will provide only the top-quality foods, innovative dishes, safe and sanitary conditions, and first-rater customer service. as a student at pace, i can vouch for all things great involving our dining services. whatã£â¢??s also pretty sweet about pace is that we have a starbucks on our campus! and if oneã£â¢??s in a rush between classes and just wants to pick up a quick snack pace offers the pace yourself kiosk, which is the smaller service are at which students can pick small snacks on the go. if students decide that they would like to eat off campus that has been thought through as well. within our pace onecard, there is a certain amount of what we call flex dollars. these flex dollars are a campus initiative, and it allows students to swipe their pace onecards at several off-campus restaurants and fast food places including rosellaã£â¢??s pizza, subway, chipotle, long island bagel cafã£â£ã¢â© and much more!

    We have something called flex dollars which is usually an average of 100 dollars through Pace to use at local eateries (which includes a local Chipotle if you're in to that.) That is pretty nice. Otherwise there is great variety in the caf including vegan and gluten-free options. There is a Starbucks in the caf that accepts your meal plan money. Caf food does get old and boring once you've been there past your first semester. HUMONGOUS downfall: the price of your meal plan options becomes a fraction of what you were offered in your freshman year once you become a sophomore and beyond--translation: apply to be an RA or get a job after freshman year unless your family is wealthy or you eat like a rabbit.

    The first month and a half at school you love the food because of the variety they have. Then after a while you realize the menus don't ever change and even the food at the buffet, goes on a cycle of what is there. On weekends when the commuters are not attending and it's only the people that dorm around the area of the school, not everything in the cafe is open and they don't restock on their beverages. towards the end of the semester most kids find themselves not eating so much in the cafe and more so eating at places outside of the school.

    There is only one or two sororities and frats and they don't have a big presence on campus. if that's a priority to you then don't go here.

    I'm not involved in Greek life, but I know people who are, and they absolutely love it. Also, they don't haze. Because hazing is awful.

    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.
