Located in the heart of New York City’s Lower Manhattan district, Pace University offers its 12,700 students a distinctly urban educational experience. Known today for its School of Law (whose environmental law program was recently ranked 4th in the nation), and the Michael Schimmel School for the Arts, Pace was founded by brothers Charles and Homer Pace in 1906 with an unparalleled focus on preparing students for their futures, a virtue it maintains to this day (the U.S. News Short List named Pace a top school for internship placement in 2013.) Its campus life offers a wide array of activities, from editing their weekly newsletter “The Pulse” and solving mysteries with the Criminal Justice Society to delving deep into clubs devoted to chemistry, the performing arts, journalism, and more. Pace’s five residence halls and several dozen fraternities and sororities offer a welcoming atmosphere, and all are within walking distance of major metro landmarks, including Chinatown and the World Financial Center. If students want to get away from the big city to take a breather, however, Pace’s 200-acre secondary campus in Westchester, NY is always just a short drive away. Pace truly has something to offer everyone.
