What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
Visit the campus and take a tour. Imagine yourself as a student, walking through the hallways, eating in the cafeteria, sitting the classrooms, and reading in the library. This will help decide whether Pace is right for you!
Maria Elena
During Orientation, try to interact with your group members and peer leaders and make as many contacts as you can. Networking is very beneficial and the best time to do that is before school even begins. Also, as a college student you must also be responsible for yourself and take the initiative in making your education worthwhile. So, if you need help in your classes, you should seek help and there are so many people to ask. Keep an open mind and just do your best.
Betty from Bronx, NY
A few tips are to tour the college to get a feel of what it looks like, speak to a few professors and current Pace students so that they can let you know what they really think about Pace and make sure to ask any question that you have in mind.
Sasha from New York, NY
Visit the campus and go to as many welcome events as possible. Unfortunately, I'm from California and could not afford the plane ticket and hotel costs. I didn't realize until orientation that I missed out on a lot of fun and a lot of information. If you cannot make it, don't worry, everything you need to know will be explained.
Raina from Richmond, CA
-Come focused, the more you put into Pace the more you'll get back
-Avoid Prof.Keating for Eng
-Get Prof.Demos for Chemistry
Nazary from Brooklyn, NY
Come visit, there are lots of open house tours that happen!
Anyone coming to the NYC campus the only advice I can give you is to manage your time. If you can manage your time in the city you will be perfectly fine academically. There is always something to do so you will never be bored, but if you let that take over and forget about academics, you will not be happy at the end of the semester.
Javon from Dorchester, MA
Add students from the school on facebook and ask them what they think of Pace.

Make a good impression on the faculty.

Have a good flow of communication with your adviser because they can help you drop classes that you don't like and they help you get what you need done.

Use all of the resources that are available to you.

Apply for outside scholarships too.
Loren from Cortlandt Manor, NY
Grades aren't everything. Try the hardest you can in High School without burdening yourself. Have fun and treasure those years while you still have them. College is the real world and you'll have plenty of help once you get there, so enjoy yourself while working hard in school.
Mike from East Northport, NY
If your thinking of attending Pace I can promise it'll be a great decision. Whether enjoying the scenery in the Westchester campus or being a busy bee in the city that never sleeps it's a college you'll love. Make sure you visit the school before you make a final decision because you want to make sure you can adapt. Get to know some Pace students on facebook and don't be afraid to ask questions.
