Pleasantville Sophomore Scoop Series
Highlights from the Pleasantville Sophomore Kick-Off Event:
The September 29th event on the Pleasantville campus was a huge success with over 160 students in attendance and many staff and faculty members! Students enjoyed making homework kits for children in surrounding communities and mingling with staff, faculty and each other over lunch. Those who were among the first 100 to arrive received a free Sophomore Kick-Off t-shirt and many students won fun prizes through a Pace Trivia game ranging from Pace clothing and dining services gift certificates to gift certificates from stores and restaurants in Pleasantville! Student, faculty and staff feedback after the event has been overwhelming positive. Please contact Allyson King at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any feedback or suggestions for next year.

Resident Assistant Positions
Visit the links below for your campus to find out about these exciting leadership positions.
The time has arrived for your charted success at Pace University to take new heights. Many of you may have become involved in a variety of co-curricular activities on and off campus. These experiences may have been through student leadership such as becoming an RA (Resident Assistant) or an OL (Orientation Leader), or perhaps you have become an active intramural participant and joined either a special interest, media or cultural group on campus.
If these ideas sound like something you would like to do but haven’t then we have a place for you to start! During the 08-09 academic year we surveyed your peers with regards to an interest in a sophomore organization. The interest ran high and the ideas were presented to cover the following areas:
- A central source of identity for sophomore students
- Educational programming geared towards the sophomore year
- Entertainment and activities for the sophomore class
If you and your peers are still interested in this organization we would be glad to help.
Want to get involved on campus? Can’t find a club that sparks your interest? Starting a new club or organization is an exciting learning experience. Students will gain leadership development and not for profit management skills and invoke their peers to support their cause through a series of meetings and presentations with the Student Association Executive Board and Senate.
For Pleasantville students, join your Class Council! As an initial step in taking ownership of both your campus community, creating school pride, and broadening your horizons this is an absolutely great way to start! Beginning in the Spring semester of 2010, the Center for Student Development & Campus Activities in Pleasantville will be bringing back Class Councils. The role of a class council will be to provide a sense of class identity, increase student participation on campus, and raise an annual fund for their senior year gift. Class Councils will be represented within our Student Government, will hold voting rights, and will have the ability to request funds for programs. Students of the Class will elect their peers into Executive Board positions nearing the end of the Spring ’10 semester for the following year. If you are interested in becoming a part of your Class Council, please visit the Center for Student Development & Campus Activities in the Kessel Student Center.
For New York City students, learn how to start a new club or organization by clicking on the link and reviewing the New Club & Organization Start-up Packet. Please contact Carmela Pastore at email@example.com with any questions and to schedule an appointment.
We hope that your Sophomore year is filled with new and exciting experiences that assist in the development of self, academia and others.
