Veterans Website Redesign
ITS and University Relations worked with OSA to redesign the veterans website so that it is now dedicated to Future and Current Veteran students. The newly centralized site allows for all veteran information, links and forms to be accessible from the main landing page. This revamp showcases Pace’s commitment to assisting veterans in pursuing higher education. Pace University was selected by G.I. Jobs magazine as a Military Friendly School for 2012, an honor awarded to only 15% of all colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide!
