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!
Review Pace University
Pace University provides a great quality well rounded education and offers a wide array of areas of study. The University is quite diverse as it is located in the midst of one of the busiest cities in the world, New York City. I love that it's location provides both access to professionals in every area of study and unlimited mentoring, internship and job opportunities both while in school and upon graduation. Great school--no regrets!
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.
