It is our goal to connect you to the various programs, events, activities and resources that Pace offers to ensure you have a well-rounded first year experience. Remember, your first year is not only comprised of academics, but co-curricular, experiential and service learning too!
FYE also serves as the central advising office for all first-year students, in addition to overseeing University 101, the cornerstone of student advising during your first semester of college.
Your first year at Pace starts in the summer at Orientation, and follows up with Convocation in September. During your first week, there will be several welcome activities to help you meet other students and get to know your new community.
Once classes begin, your University 101 first-year seminar will provide a weekly opportunity to touch base with your advisor, making sure your transition to Pace University is easy, exciting and stress free!
