What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
Pace U is an institution with it's priority set at student interests. Many students may feel intimidated by the rigor and responsibilities that come with college life, myself included; however, one never has to feel this way at Pace. By going to orientation alone, confidence is insured by the well-organized and well-explained process of being a student here.
Raina from Richmond, CA
Largely underrated school. Opportunity is nice and abundant if you are confident in yourself and are willing to put yourself out there. Can you really put a price on the fun and excitement of the city?
Pace University is a place where people go to get their degree for what they want to become in life, but in pursuit they also find out who they are as a person. The atmosphere of the school is very tight nit and comfortable to the point it makes you feel as if you are still at home. The fact that the school is right in Downtown New York just makes it even better because of everything you can do in the area.
Javon from Dorchester, MA
Pace University is the place to go if you love living in a fast paced environment. We have campuses both in the heart of the city and also in Westchester for you to enjoy the stars and the quietness of nature.
