"Pace is where you want to be. As an alumni, I look back upon my time at Pace and all the things I have learned from my amazing classmates and instructors. Sure there are a few improvements the school could undergo but what is perfect? Your journey at Pace is up to you. Breathe in the New York oxygen because your time at Pace will be over in a New York minute! I miss you all BFA, BA Actors and the faculty members. And above all thank you Pace for accepting my application."

"Your experience at Pace will be entirely up to you. This is the biggest cliche in the world but here we go, the city really is your campus. You have to take the initiative to seek out the abundant resources that can be available. Pace has an amazing reputation with internships. You can get your foot in the door and jump-start your career path."

"After hopping around two different schools for the first year and a half of my undergrad, I felt immediately at home when I moved into my tiny 10x10 room on Fulton Street right in the hustle and bustle of the Financial District. Pace University was an experience that you cannot just get anywhere in any major city. It is mainly a commuter school - and there is no real "campus" feel. That is definitely what I disliked the most - the lack of community within the school. They have the main courtyard for students to gather but truthfully I think most students just went to Pace for classes and left immediately after that. The food was also terrible but I graduated many years ago and it may have gotten better since then! As for the program, I graduated with a BBA in Integrated Marketing Communications. There were a few professors who were absolutely horrific, but some others that made such an impact on where I ended up after college. A large dislike was the amount of group projects you had to do for every single class. Understandably so, the business world does work in teams often, but I felt that group dynamics in college are far different than team dynamics in a work setting. Generally speaking, the material was realistic and ranged from business finances to strategy and helped me find my niche - events and branding. Pace University was something that I take into great value when I reflect on my education. Being in one of the largest business hubs of the world, your opportunities are wildly endless. So many of my classmates now have highly respected positions at well-known companies and are quite happy with their educational outcome."

"Pace University has a great program for those pursuing a degree in Business. They also have a great career resource program, bringing top firms to the school for recruitment of future graduate. As I studied at Pace University and earned a degree in Public Accounting, I took advantage of the program offered, and was able to get a full-time job with a very reputable firm upon graduating school."

"Pace University has amazing professors and students. The professors are all always willing to help and make themselves available to you. The coursework is rigorous, but not impossible to keep up with. There is so much to do right at your doorstep because you are in the city. Pace also has a lot of fun events to make all students feel welcome and included. All the students are always so nice and there is so much diversity and uniqueness."

"Pace is a school experience that is extremely dependent on you as a student. You will find both insightful professors and professors that will just dictate material to you., but the good professors absolutely stand out. If you are a business student, there are a myriad of opportunities for you to get real world experience in your field of interests through internship opportunities. That being said, student life leads much to be desired. There is not a lot of diversity on the campus when it comes to both the student population and the faculty. When it comes to campus safety, you are getting a mixed bag. of safety. If you are going to the campus in New York City, you will find checkpoints that require you to have a Pace ID to get through. On the other hand, if you are going to the Pleasantville campus, you can just walk on campus without any worry, having access to all academic and administrative buildings with no worry. It gives the students a feeling as if anybody can walk on campus and do whatever they want."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Pace University-Pleasantville! This is one of the most underrated colleges- there are tremendous opportunities for developing one's career trajectories through NYC internship placements, superior faculty mentors, and international competitions."

"The program itself is very easy, on the undergraduate level for the most part. The tenured professors don't have much contribution in the world of academia or in proffesional settings. The adjuncts bring a fresh perspective when they are allowed to create their own lessons or else it it easy to find the templates and assignments they teach from. The core classes vastly vary in difficulty depending on who teaches and the electives that are advertised are only seldom offered. There is a big focus on the undergraduates, so if you pursue a masters be prepared to invest in a boot camp afterwards in order to be a good programmer and to create opportunities. In all, had I known this earlier I would not have completed the program because I did want to have a deeper understanding and to stand out from the crowd which the MA fails to deliver on."

"Attending a college in the heart of a big city had many advantages. There were many opportunities for internships and work and it taught me that I need to be proactive and take advantage of the opportunities that are offered. At Pace there was not a huge platform for psychology students, being most known for business and arts (theater etc.) in the beginning I was a little lost. Once I joined the psychology club a door opened to internships and jobs that I would have never known about by doing my own research. I would highly recommend joining a club in your major because it not only builds your experience and your resume, but I was also able to create lasting friendships with people who were interested in the same things as me. Now I am on the way to apply to graduate school in the hopes of becoming a Nurse Practitioner! Without the learning style and curriculum at Pace University I would not have had the discipline to really realize the career path I wanted to take."

"Pace offers a variety of interesting classes - there are classes for all interests. Most degree programs allow room to take lots of classes not related to your field, as well as many options within your field. However, if you are not receiving quality financial aid, the benefits are not worth the loan repayment. You also must stay on top of the OSA office, as they will let you fall through the cracks. Professor quality ranges - as some professors are amazing while others shouldn't have a job. Get a great adviser and you should go through your collegiate career smoothly. Having a bad one can cause issues in your senior year - big ones."

"Tell us about your college experience.It was a good fit I guess, it's difficult to compare it to anything as you don't have a basis for comparison. The school was a good fit I'd say but in the end if the job market doesn't pan out for your industry, you wasted a lot of money.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?No, I think I'd pick a different degree. A Bachelors in Finance is rather useless, an MBA is worthwhile though if you have a strong work ethic.What advice can you offer other students?If you work hard, opportunities will come. The degree is just a piece of paper."
