What’s something you wish someone had told you about your first week at Pace: Start saving money as soon as possible!
Favorite professor: Mark Weinstock. He has been my professor and academic advisor and has contributed the most to my success. He believed in me even when I doubted myself.
Most interesting class: Current Dance in NY. It was designed so that students from various backgrounds could learn about and discuss dance. We had the opportunity to attend theatre and dance shows biweekly! It was great that I was able to bring in my knowledge of economics to educate the class about the connections between entertainment and economics.
Something you wish you had spent more time doing: I wish I would have been more adventurous and explored the city more.
Resource/office that helped you the most: The Economics Department
Favorite spot on campus: The Resident Advisor office in 182 Broadway
Best club, org, or activity for incoming students: I highly recommend Women in Corporate America because it promotes women supporting each other in the business world.
Best way to prep for finals: Study as much as possible, well in advance, and utilize the Tutoring Center. The tutors are incredibly helpful.
What piece of advice do you wish someone had given you to help prepare you for your senior year of college: Complete your senior thesis junior year and take all math courses before senior year.
Advice for the Class of 2021: You are stronger than you know. Keep pushing and strengthening yourselves. Your work and endurance will pay off!
