Many Honors College students play a significant role in the Pace community. George Beauzile is an extreme example of this. George’s resume includes having been an Orientation Leader, a Resident Assistant, oh, and he is the current President of the Student Association.
The 21-year-old from Greenburgh, NY, decided to attend Pace University for its close proximity to home. George explains, “Pace allows me to stay close to the family while still being able to get my education.” That education has come in the form of studying in English and minoring in Pre-Law.
When not working his office hours as Pace’s S.A. President, George takes part in his fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha Inc. George is also a bit of a singer. He has participated in Pace Inspirational Praise Ensemble (P.I.P.E.) performances. Along with singing, George enjoys drawing.
George has enjoyed his time at Pace and being a member of the Honors College. His favorite part about being a member of Honors is the events. The “Wrapping Gifts” event for the Pleasantville Cottage School is noted as his favorite because he enjoys spreading holiday cheer. The friendly community that is Pace is something George appreciates very much.
If Pace does not offer something such as a club or organization, students can help create it. This is something that George highlights as the most valued asset of Pace. George feels that “If you try hard enough, you can do anything; you can make it happen.” Many clubs and organizations have come into being because of this mentality.
When George graduates this coming Spring, Pace will be losing a well-rounded student who contributed to its community in so many ways. George has plans to work for a year before attending Law School. His dream would be to attend Law School at Cornell University. Before he parts ways with Pace, George extends these words of wisdom to the student body: “Make sure you have a balance between school and life; your main goal is to get an education, but some things cannot be learned in a classroom.”
