Very convenient to access to the professionals who work in finance/accounting industries. Many workshops, clubs, platforms, and resources! Campus food is delicious because i am not picky on food. Dorm is awful: it is extremely expensive, so you would be better live off campus in the area around pace university; the laundry room is gross and messy; your guests have to have a national ID card to stay over; you have so many mandatory, meaningless floor meetings!
Review Pace University
I've had a great experience here at Pace University! The faculty and staff are very accommodating and welcoming. They make you feel comfortable in the classroom, coming into their offices and just seeing them around campus. There are so many opportunities that are offered here at Pace and all you have to do is take them! I've done so many things in my first year alone that have set me up for success for the next three years.
I have had some of the best experiences of my life at Pace University. I have learned in the classroom, In my field, and have been able to decide where I want to be when I graduate. This school has set me up with job offers, set me up with graduate programs, and has allowed me to have a great college experience while staying on track with my courses and jobs. This school is amazing!
