Attend a Pace Open House on Saturday, October 12, in New York City, or Sunday, October 20, in Westchester, and see what life as a Pace Setter is all about!
Think Pace might be the perfect fit for you? If you’re a prospective first-year or transfer student, we cordially invite you and your family to attend a Fall Open House—happening on our New York City Campus on Saturday, October 12, and on our Westchester Campus on Sunday, October 20. Here’s why we think you should pay us a visit:
1. Make the Best Match
Choosing the right college takes time, attention, care, and a dash of intuition. While there is no set formula in figuring out which university is right for you, experiencing all that our campus has to offer is a great start. Does your future hold Setter blue and gold? That’s for you to decide!
2. Meet the Future You
Our Open House events give you the opportunity to talk with current students and alumni, who will be able to share unique insights about life on campus, and provide answers to any burning questions you may have. They’ve walked several miles in your shoes, because it wasn’t too long ago that they were in your exact position!
3. Explore Your Pace Path
At Pace University, we break down the four walls of the classroom with the Pace Path, our signature program that combines outstanding academics with the real-world experiences and mentoring you’ll need to succeed after graduation. Basically, we help you figure out how to achieve and succeed in the career path that you’re most interested in. You’ll be able to learn more at our Open House and see what your future could be.
During our academic fair, you will also have the opportunity to meet someone from every major offering, enabling you to gain the inside scoop on the academic fields you might be interested in pursuing.
4. Start Feeling at Home
During your visit, we highly encourage you to take a campus and residence hall tour to gain a better understanding of where exactly you might be spending the next four years. Whether your sights are set on our picturesque Westchester Campus or our bustling New York City Campus, becoming more familiar with your new potential home will significantly ease next year’s major transition to college life. Check out our sneak previews of each campus below!
5. Crunch Numbers
While on campus, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about our financial aid offerings, as well as the many scholarships available to incoming students. To ensure that you and your family are taking the most advantage of aid packages, grants, scholarships and more, we encourage you to learn more about financial aid at Pace.
6. Understand the Process
Overwhelmed by the college application frenzy? You’re not alone! During your visit, you will have the opportunity to meet with an admission counselor to learn more about the admission process, important deadlines, and how to get all off those application ducks in a row.
7. Share Your Setter Sojourn
