Pace’s Best Welcome Week Ever Continues

Last week, you got the leidown on Hawaiian BBQs and open mic nights in NYC. This week, iced tea pong and karaoke will get you pumped.

So, where do we begin… How about with where we left off last week? You know that the Fall Activities Fair and Mets game are happening tomorrow, September 10.

On September 11, join the community at a 9/11 vigil, which you can read more about here.

Spend your Sunday one of two great ways: Shoot 45 stories high at 128 mph on Six Flags Great Adventure’s world-record-breaking Kingda Ka (the tallest, fastest roller coaster on Earth) or take a trip back to the 1950s where rival teenage street gangs try to keep Tony and Maria (think Romeo and Juliet, but with more denim and circular skirts) in Broadway’s West Side Story.

On Monday, September 13 we’ve got you busy from noon until 10:00 p.m.  First, stop by Room A in the Student Union to find out what you need to know to stay in the loop, and how to use your Pace One Card. Then, connect with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and ally (LGBTQA) students at the LGBTQA Reception. Then, take your new friends around the city in a NYC Cupcake Crawl, and cap off the night with Student Government Association (SGA) sipping “mocktails” and testing your skills in a friendly Iced Tea Pong tourney.

September 14 is all about the Chalk Festival; you can read more about that here.

Grab the mic and belt out your favorite Katy Perry jam at karaoke on September 15.  Or, if you’re a transfer student, meet, mix, and mingle with other transfers that afternoon. 

On September 16, Associate Professor Susan Herman discusses her new book, “Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime,” and will engage you in thinking about justice—from a victim’s perspective.

Also on September 16, learn to navigate the bustling streets of Chinatown like a native New Yorker (and don’t forget to stop for some delicious dumplings.)

So, what’s happening after September 16? Tune in next week or check out what’s going on here.
