Eh, It was just ok.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Eh, It was just ok. Met great friends, and mentors. But lacked the social atmosphere I had wanted in a college. If you like the small campus feel, its great, but I would have wanted a larger University. Lacked the school spirit and pride most schools have. No meaningful, fun, worthwhile events on campus. Overall ok, If you get a scholarship.

Question
I switched my major from undecided to biologyBrightBiology
I switched my major from undecided to biology my second semester, and the fact that they don't have all of the classes offered every semester really screws me over as far as trying to graduate on time with the rest of my class. The majority of my classes were easier than classes I've taken in high school. 54k is too much to pay for Pace. It is literally high school all over again. Once you have a group of friends, the chances of making new ones are slim to none. There are only about 1,500 kids that live on campus, so if you like seeing the same people over and over again, come here. Like any other school, I've had good professors, but the majority of them were either so easy or just didn't know how to teach. Many people go home on the weekends, so there really isn't a great social life here. The only reason I stay at school is because of the friends I've made.

Question
Pace was an amazing experience for me.Quite BrightCommunications
Pace was an amazing experience for me. Understand that upfront my intention was to go to a great university that would line me up with a great career-partying and a ravenous social scene were secondary to me. Pace gave me everything I had hoped: amazing internships, some of the best professors imaginable, connections to industry professionals, and some great friends that I'll keep for a long time.

For some, pace did offer a "party" scene, but it was minimal at best. The only major parties were at the townhouses, and even those were smaller than parties that were thrown when I was in high school. That being said, compared to my friends who went to a "Party University"-I am gainfully employed and they are roving the streets as townies.

You can make good friends, but at 3500 students there wont be a crazy party scene. There are things to do and there are bars and parties that everyone goes too-but understand that everyone is the same 1000 people spread between all of the possibilities every weekend. For people looking for more, the city is a 40 min train ride away, and a campus bus runs to the train station every fifteen minutes. Pace is one of the best schools to get you an education, to get you a job, and is a great ROI.
