Pace University in New York City is a phenomenal college. Who doesn’t love the city life? Instead of a boring, normal campus we have the city as our campus! The professors are very flexible and understanding. It’s also very helpful how many resources there are such as: the library, the writing center, CAP, and of course the extra hours the professors give us to answer questions. This is a great place to meet new friends from all over the place, and not just states other countries as well. This is my second year and I love it, you will too!

Very resourceful school ! There are ton of things to get into . They always special event for all majors like summers paid internships for everyone at a click of a button. Very friendly staff and student centers. Everything you need is super accessible, so that saves you time and effort. I just transferred from San Diego to pace and so far I’m happy with my decision. Yes, I do plan on staying until I graduate and possibly doing my masters here as well. They offer scholarships for various reasons, so it’s not too difficult to get the help you need . I’m personally on an academic scholarship and it has helped me out tremendously. I would recommend pace over NYU due do to the resources and tuition assistance they provide here at pace university!
The faculty are amazing! I have met many people who have helped me so much and truly want to see you succeed. Moving to a new school, especially college, can be really difficult and challenging. Meeting new people and adjusting to the new environment alone can be extremely difficult. Although the courses were hard for me, my professors always had open doors to those who were struggling and needed help. They really wanted the students to come in and talk to them. Since I do not dorm, it was difficult to make friends as I would go home right after class ended, but Pace offers University 101 which helps first year students adjust to their surroundings.
