Pace University Reviews
I am a freshman at Pace, and so far I really love it! The only thing I think that I would change is the math placement test policy. All incoming college freshman have to take a math placement exam and an english placement exam, which will put students into math and English courses. The school does not tell you that the math placement exam also determines if you can start taking classes in your major if you are a science major. I took the exam and got put into an algebra course, and was told I couldn't start any of my Biology courses until I took Algebra and Calculus. This would also mean that I would either have to take summer classes or graduate late. When school started, I wanted to leave because I felt as though I was the only person not excited to start their major, because I technically hadn't started yet. This is the only thing I think that I would change about Pace. Otherwise the school is wonderful.
I LOVE Pace so much! I've transferred a lot so I've been to quite a few colleges, and this one is my favorite by far. The classes and teachers are incredible and really interesting; super current and engaging. The campus is in the middle of FIDI so there's so many places to eat at/ shop/ hang out and the train station thats the closest takes you to literally everywhere. The food is also some of the best college food I've ever had and they have a lot of options for vegans/vegetarians/etc. Everyone is so nice and theres so many different types of people it doesnt matter what youre into or who you are you will forsure find a crew you'll fit in with!
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!
