Pace’s Great Race Begins Tonight!

If you’re not already making moves toward the Step Show in PLV tonight, you better get to steppin’, because there’s an iPad at stake.

So, you’re obviously interested in winning an iPad if we got you here. So let’s get right to it! 

Student Development and Campus Activities (SDCA) in PLV is bringing you Pace’s Great Race–Homecoming Social Media Contest 2010. This weekend, each of the five big Homecoming events will have a riddle (Step Show, Pep Rally/Banners, Football Game, President’s Dinner, and Fabulicious).  The riddles will be announced on SDCA’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

The riddles will be posted to both pages 30 minutes before the event and re-posted at the start of the event. The contest will be closed 30 minutes after the event ends. Contestants will solve the riddle by taking a picture of the answer and sending it to with their name, year level, and Pace e-mail. Please include the name of the event in the subject. In order to be eligible to win the grand prize, contestants must answer four of the five riddles correctly. The contestants who answer all four correctly will have their names placed in a raffle to win the grand prize:  a hug from the Pulse editor’s grandma…kidding! The prize is really a 16GB Apple iPad, but you can hug our grandma if you want!

It’s Showtime: Inside the Actors Studio is Back!

Inside the Actors Studio is about to kick off its season of tapings on the NYC Campus! On October 26, you have a chance to be hanging with Mr….>>Read More…

Cooper! Bradley, that is. You may know him from The Hangover, Wedding Crashers, or even He’s Just Not That Into You (don’t feel bad, it happened to the best of us), but you can thank Actors Studio dean James Lipton who schooled him years ago…really. 

In just a few weeks, Bradley Cooper will return to Inside the Actors Studio, and this time he won’t be asking questions as part of his master’s class. He’ll be sitting in the hotseat next to Lipton answering questions from his blue notecards, along with the famous ten Pivot questions. So if you want to hear Bradley Cooper tell you his favorite curse word (hint: it’s not *******) then head over to the Schimmel Theater on October 26 with your Pace ID to get your two tickets, space permitting, to the taping.

The next taping will be on November 10. Oh, you want to know who the guest will be? Well, we’re going to tell you….at a later time. For now, we’re going to Milk the attention for all it’s worth. The person in question is a male. One of his films grossed almost $900 million worldwide; he finished his degree at UCLA with a 62-credit quarter, and his name rhymes with “games panko.” Fine, you win. It’s JAMES FRANCO.

A Night of Struggles, Pride, and Film

Celebrate Latin@ Heritage and National Coming Out Month at a one-day film screening of independent filmmakers focusing on the experiences of being LGBT and Latin@ on October 18 in NYC. >>Read More…

Join the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Unid@s at Nuestra Lucha, Nuestro Orgullo, y Nuestra Voces—Our Struggles, Our Pride, and Our Voices, an evening of six films from talented filmmakers, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on October 18 in NYC.

The lineup is as follows:

Homenaje a Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado
Jorge Steven López Mercado, a 19 year-old college student, was discovered dead on November 14, 2009 in Cayey, a city located in Puerto Rico’s interior region. López was widely known as a volunteer for organizations advocating for HIV prevention and gay rights. His murderer pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 99 years in prison for his murder.

*Si nos Dejan
Todo por Placer
Two short pieces by Alejandro Murillo portraying aspects of gay life in Mexico. Watch and listen as music plays an important role in the development of the characters and the energy throughout these comedic films.

*Reina de Mi Misma
A documentary exploring the feminist work of Krudas Cubensi, also known as Las Krudas, an all-woman creative trio from Cuba. It focuses on the impact the trio has had in the Afro-centric and underground hip-hop spheres in La Habana and the United States.

*T con T
“What would a Cuban version of The L-Word look like?” This question prompted the formation of the T con T Collective and initiated the subsequent documentary-style video, which reflects the lived experience of a group of lesbians in Havana, Cuba.

*En el Fuego
Transphobia is an everyday problem around the world and in a religious and conservative city like Lima, Peru where transgender citizens are not protected by any specific laws, it can be downright dangerous. Despite the danger of living openly, these Peruvians prosper and persevere. They earn degrees, work with children, and stand up for themselves, affecting a change in the status quo for their LGBT community.

A real-life story portraying Pichie and his mother as they learn and grow together through the lens of Pichie’s stolen and corrupted childhood. Watch him dress up, put make up on, and address more than just childhood self-discovery issues.

Gaga Goes GaGa for Pace Alumnus’ Work

You may think that we use any excuse we can to get Lady Gaga in the Pulse, and you may usually be right, but this time we’ve got the scoop on a recent Pace graduate that she’s caught in a plaid romance with.

Alright, so Lady Gaga probably wouldn’t be caught in Rolling Stone or on the Today Show in plaid, but she did pick Pace alumnus and budding designer Asher Levine ’10 to custom create some pieces for her over the last few months. No, Levine is not responsible for the infamous meat dress, but this one’s just as juicy: The white straightjacket coat/dress she wore during her Today Show performance and the black motorcycle jacket seen in her July Rolling Stone feature were Levine originals.

And to think, just a few months ago Levine was walking the red carpet at Pace University Commencement before hitting the sketch pad and sewing machine to come up with some signature Gaga looks. Over the past couple of months he’s been featured everywhere from to W Magazine’s Editors Blog.

So, why Pace and not Parsons? “I knew how to make clothes, I needed to know accounting, marketing, and all the things fashion school leaves out,” Levine said.

Check out the Asher Levine fall and spring collections here.
