Speed Friending

Forget Facebooking people you don’t know. Get two minutes with a bunch of people who might just end up being your BFFLs. You can thank us later!

Making new friends isn’t always easy, especially when you’ve got to juggle classes, homework, a job, and a social life. That’s why Residence Hall Association (RHA) is hosting Speed Friending, an event where you can make 30 new friends in 60 minutes. Everyone is invited and you’ll get two minutes worth of conversation per person, and when the speed friending is done you can mingle afterwards. Oh and did we mention there’s free food?

Stop by the Multipurpose Room in NYC on September 14: Your best bud is waiting!

Pace’s Best (Welcome) Week Ever

VH1’s Best Week Ever may have been cancelled, but Pace University’s is just about to get started. Get ready for not one, but two, great weeks of everything from cupcake crawls to Mets and Yankees games on the NYC campus.

In just hours, students will begin moving in, and before you even have a chance to unpack, SDACA has events ready and waiting for you. So put down those suitcases and come on down…to Welcome Week in NYC.

Forgot something at home? On September 4, SDACA will sponsor a trip to IKEA in Brooklyn via water taxi.

On September 5, a trip to the most famous boardwalk in the nation (no, not Jersey Shore’s famous Seaside Heights) to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Coney Island Illuscination will wow you.

Celebrate Labor Day on September 6 with some leis, hula skirts, and food at a Hawaiian  BBQ in the Courtyard of One Pace Plaza.

Convocation is on September 7 followed by an open mic night with Deejay Spynfo for those of you aspiring rappers, guitarists, singers, and poets.

Classes kick off on September 8, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Meet your Student Government Association reps and get some free giveaways in the afternoon, followed by a South Street Seaport walking tour and Bodies exhibit in the evening.

No classes for you on Thursday, September 9, but that doesn’t mean the welcoming ceases, as the Office of Multicultural Affairs treks up to Museum Mile’s El Museo Del Barrio, New York’s premier museum that exhibits works created by a cross section of Latino, Caribbean, and Latin American artists.

On September 10, the once-in-a-semester Fall Activities Fair will help you make some lifelong friends, but you can read more about that here. At night, the Mets take on the Phillies, and you can be there singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” for just $10.

There are dozens of other events happening after that, so click here to read more. And we’ll keep you updated on all of them next week.

50 Days and 50 Nights

For 50 days and 50 nights beginning September 6, the PLV campus is where you’re going to want to be. From block parties to Bollywood, Pace is making sure your semester gets off on the right foot.

If you’re looking to fill your social calendar with dozens of fun events, then SDCA’s 50 Days and 50 Nights of Programming is about to make you a busy bee.

Here’s looking at you! It may be after Labor Day, but the Serial Mom will forgive you for wearing white to the Casablanca all-white party hosted by OLAS (Organization of Latin American Students) on September 6 at Prophecy Nightclub in White Plains. Transportation from Kessel starts at 9:00 p.m. and make sure to bring your Pace ID.

September 7 is Convocation, and if you haven’t already seen the posters and signs, read more about it here.

On September 8, head on over to Shirley Beth’s Way and rock out with Phi Sig during common hour, and make an appearance at the Black Student Union’s block party at night.

On September 9, DHOSA hosts a Bollywood movie night featuring Slumdog Millionaire, and do your best Milli Vanilli (or Ashlee Simpson, whichever) for the lip sync finals.

The Student Association meets for the first time this semester on September 10, followed by the Alpha-Beta-PC BBQ hosted by Alpha Phi Alpha, Omega Phi Beta, and the Programming Committee, and APA caps the evening off with a Welcome Back Party.
