I really like it here at Pace University, there are so many opportunities available to students. The location is a definite plus, as most New York attractions are just a short walk or subway ride away. The academics are exceptional and it is especially advantageous for Business majors to be located in the heart of Wall Street. Aside from that, there are many campus activities and clubs for students to join, and there is always free food available at one event or the other! The faculty are very helpful and they are invested in seeing students succeed, which can really help boost student morale. In addition to this, the university really pushes for real world experience, like internships, and the career services department is a great resource for students to utilize in their search for such experiences.

Pace University is extremely resourceful. It is completely what you make of it, though. You can pretty much sail through and waste the thousands upon thousands spent on tuition, or you can become as involved as possible in different organizations and utilize their internship opportunities, leaving with a guaranteed job. Although I think Pace is overpriced, if you work really hard and take a lot upon yourself, it can be worth it. They are generous with granting scholarships, but even their largest scholarship package leaves a notable price to pay. Make it worth it; the equipment is there!
The school is overall great-- most professors really care about you and how you're doing in class and the same goes for advisors as well. There are always events going on and lots of clubs. The school is rather pricey though but that's a given since it's a private school. Amazing place for business majors, liberal arts, law and nursing students!
