The fact that 50 countries currently have better education systems than the U.S. should be a wakeup call. Sigma Lambda Upsilon, whose philanthropy is Literacy: Empowerment One Word at a Time, will explore the inconvenient truth about our nation’s education system. How has tenure hindered us? Who is accountable for what you learn? How are we funding our education system and is it fair? This event will take a deeper approach into why our educational system has fallen behind, what our government has done or not done to fix this institution, and how this will affect our country in the long run.

50 and Fabulous

Go PLV, it’s your birthday. We’re gonna hula hoop cuz it’s your birthday. We’re gonna listen to a Beatles tribute band cuz it’s your birthday. And you know we will give you food cuz it’s your birthday! >>Read More

If you haven’t seen the website, posters, pop-ups, cupcakes, or even buses riding around campus, you might have missed the big news: The Pleasantville Campus is turning 50 this year.

To commemorate, we’ll have a series of events celebrating the PLV Campus’ past and looking toward its bright future.

On September 16, 1963, the first class of enrolled students made their way to Pace’s brand new Pleasantville Campus. These students—who numbered just over 400—were undaunted by the active construction that was still taking place on the grounds. Today, the total number of full-time students enrolled at Pace’s Pleasantville Campus is just over 2,300. The past 50 years has shown an incredible pattern of growth and advancement that will propel Pace forward for the next 50 years.

This September 16, 2013 the PLV Campus launches the year-long celebration with a day of food, fun, and heritage. Beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Miller Lawn, there will be free food, games, hula hoop and bubble gum blowing competitions, free gifts, music from Beatles tribute band, Beatles Faux Sale, and more, all featured from the 1960s.

Stay tuned this fall for the groundbreaking on the Pleasantville Campus where members of the Pace Community will help usher in the new look for Pace as part of the University’s Master Plan. Some of the changes students, faculty, and staff on the PLV Campus can expect to see over the next few years include the addition of two residence halls, an upgrade to the student center, enriched athletics facilities, and much more.

More to come on an October 26 Homecoming private reception for students and parents with Dean Lisa in Gottesman Room followed by dinner in the Gym.

For more information about these and other events planned for the PLV 50th anniversary or to share your PLV story, visit www.pace.edu/PLV50.

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.
