If you are a student that puts all of his or her effort into schoolwork, you will definitely have amazing relationships with your professors. All of the professors are always willing to help you if you show that you are dedicated and ambitious about school. The resources are endless at Pace, so get the most out of it! Many friends that I made during my freshman year at Pace do not like it here, but they are ungrateful of the excellent student body, faculty, resources, and the location of the school.
Review Pace University
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!
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.
