Overview

The Manhattan Campus Allows Students to Share in Wealth of Culture Found in New York City

Pace University prepares students to be leaders through an education that unites exceptional academics with the advantages of two New York area campuses, one in Manhattan and one in Westchester County. Pace students thrive on the opportunities of the New York metropolitan area. The university maintains partnerships with 500 local employers in New York, and these partners often assist Pace with placing students in co-operative education and internship positions.

The Manhattan campus also provides students with access to a wealth of cultural riches in a world-renowned city. Students can explore neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Little Italy, Chelsea, and SoHo. They visit museums, Wall Street, and Broadway in the unparalleled New York City setting.

Only 30 miles from Manhattan, Pace's Westchester campus is a smaller college environment; it is a traditional campus on 200 acres in the tree-covered hills of Westchester County. This campus also provides students with access to internship opportunities in Westchester, southern Connecticut, and New York City.

Westchester shares its own cultural highlights with students. The county hosts one of the most popular outdoor music festivals in the country, is the location of the Neuberger Museum of Art, and attracts audiences to its Performing Arts Center. Outdoor recreation for students can revolve around a weekend on area lakes or the Hudson River.

Students Gain Valuable On-The-Job Career Experience through the Co-Op Employment Program

More than a thousand Pace students from the New York City and Westchester campuses take advantage of leading-edge internships and job positions each year through the co-op employment program. Many work in the co-op program for Westchester County and New York metropolitan area firms, corporations, institutions, and businesses. Positions within the co-op employment program may be in the fields of finance, media, communications, health care, technology, and education.

Pace has developed the co-op employment program so students will have practical career preparation to "hit the ground running" when they graduate. The university estimates that nearly 50 percent of its co-op participants receive job offers from their co-op employers. Future graduates can begin adding to their resumes during their university years by participating in co-op employment or internships. Participation provides students with on-the-job, pre-professional training that is often paid. The program helps students work in positions related directly to their fields of study or interests, and provides the flexibility of part-time, full-time, or summer work.

Valuable career preparation also takes place in the classroom. With a student-teacher ratio of 15:1, students can gain support and mentorship from faculty. Many Pace professors work as consultants, researchers, and even directors of companies, so classroom discussions include the latest information. The university's dedication to classroom learning and career training illustrates that the Pace education emphasizes both rigorous academics and vital career preparation.

Dynamic Student Life Makes a Pace Education Even More Rewarding

The university recognizes that an education is not only a stepping stone to a career, but also a rewarding, life-changing experience. The Office of Student Development and Campus Activities works to ensure that student life at Pace is dynamic. The campus is alive with social, civic, cultural, and athletic student activities, near the backdrop of New York City. For example, the annual University Fest is an activity-filled weekend for families to see the advantages of learning at Pace. Academic, professional, and student organizations often benefit from the area's educational and cultural resources.

The Westchester campus has 19 NCCA Division II teams, while sports-minded students may join intramural and club teams on both campuses. Student organizations fall into the categories of: professional, student media and entertainment, Greek life, academic interests, student government, politics and social issues, honor societies, and culture.

Professional student organizations help members build connections with peers and industry professionals from their academic major. Pace's student-run media networks include yearbook, radio, newspapers, a literary magazine, and campus programming. Some academic majors have established clubs for socialization and career interests. Student government organizations plan student activities and enhance campus life, while clubs for politics and social issues often sponsor service projects. Students are recognized through honor societies that encourage achievement, and various clubs have started to celebrate cultural differences of students.
