    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.

    The food is good and there are definitely a lot of options, but it's not the best if you're trying to eat healthy. There's a little Mexican food type station, a sandwich station, frozen yogurt, waffles and omelettes all day if you want, a smoothie stand,a little pizzeria type station, candy, soup, bagels, energy bars, etc.

    I like the food here. Again, this rating is dependent upon the person and what you like. The first time that I have ever had sushi was here, so I wouldn't know if it was good or bad, but I like it. However, it is important to note that many things are overpriced, atleast on the NYC campus. If you are being careful with your money, have an idea of how much the item will cost before you buy it. Also, there is a Starbucks inside of the NYC location. The staff is friendly and they work pretty efficiently. Many students stop throughout the day to get coffee and snacks.

    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!

    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.

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