Setters Hit Their Stride

News Story

From winning first place in the 2017 College Fed Challenge, to receiving accolades at the 2017 National Model UN conference, to overseeing safety precautions along the Hudson River, Pace students are taking huge strides ahead of the pack!

It’s no wonder why Pace has been booming with Setter pride lately! With all their recent awards and successes, students have been setting the pace (ha!) for schools nationwide. We’re so proud of all of the outstanding superstars here at Pace, and we can’t wait to share more success stories in the near future. What have they been up to this week? Check out the latest below:

Challenge Accepted

Forty-three teams competed. Twelve teams advanced. Pace’s award-winning Federal Reserve Team just won first place in the 2017 College Fed Challenge, Liberty Street division after a stellar show of teamwork and skill. Hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, college students compete by presenting in front of a panel of judges who are all experts in economics and monetary policy. Good luck at nationals, Setters! Check out the pic.

Breaking Ground

The NYC Model United Nations program broke new ground during the 2017 National Model UN conference in Washington, DC, recently. They received both a Distinguished Delegation and Honorable Mention Delegation award, as well as six Outstanding Position Paper Awards for their written work. Wowza! For a behind-the-scenes look at the Model UN team here at Pace, be sure to visit their blog.

Model Students

The PLV Model UN team just won seven—count 'em, seven—awards at the Southern Regional Model United Nations Atlanta conference, including Honorable Delegation and Outstanding Position Paper. Check out the pic!

River Safety

Christina Thomas ’19, an Environmental Studies major on the NYC Campus, recently attended a two-day PAWSA workshop to look into the safety along the Hudson River and whether additional anchorage sites were necessary. She was then interviewed by WAMC/Northeast Public Radio about her impressions. “I’m not less concerned. I’m not necessarily more concerned,” Thomas said. “I am still skeptical, however.”

Building Your Bardbot

Anastasia Glouchtenko, a Computer Science major on the NYC Campus, uploaded a thorough and fun tutorial on how to build a BardBot. Watch the video the whole way through, because the end is pretty lit. ;) You can also subscribe for more robot-building content to come!

Haiku Against Hazing

The results are in! Izabella Morris ’20, Kirk Pineda ’18, and Peter Roy ’18 have all been named winners of the Haiku Against Hazing contest. With clever words and a clear purpose, they presented their thoughts on the dangerous tradition of hazing in three-line poetic format. You can read their work on the Pace Library website now!
