Pace Remembers 9/11

Join the Pace Community in commemorating the anniversary of 9/11/01 with vigils on both campuses and a trip to the memorial.


The events of 9/11 have had a profound effect on a generation of people around the world, but our University, located mere blocks away from the World Trade Center, felt the impact first-hand. Twelve years ago, the Pace Community lost 47 members—students and alumni alike—and was closed for several weeks as we worked toward recovery.

Join Pace students, faculty, and staff at events being held on both campuses:

NYC Campus Vigil
8:45 p.m.–11:00 p.m.
The vigil will be held at the main entrance of One Pace Plaza then proceed to Ground Zero.  Sponsored by the Office of Housing and Residential Life. For more information, contact (212) 346-1295. There will also be a SDACA-sponsored visit to the National September 11 Memorial on Thursday, September 19 from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, PA, and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. Meet at the Info Desk at 1:30 p.m.

PLV Campus Memorial
9:00 p.m.
Alpha Phi Delta fraternity hosts a memorial on the Gottesman Patio, featuring a moment of silence, short presentation, and a candle-lit vigil around Choate Pond. Members of the Pace Community can share how they were affected by the attack.
