Family Events

Your students are getting involved. So should you.

Pace encourages parents and families to see what their student is doing during their time at Pace. Every year we invite parents and families to participate in a number of campus activities that will help you better understand the Pace experience. Family activities include: Orientation, Family Weekend/Homecoming, Convocation, and Commencement. We also urge parents and family members to sign up for the Parents Association, which helps plan family activities and promotes communication between parents, students, staff, and faculty.

  • Orientation: Parents and families may participate in Orientation programs geared specifically toward them. We offer a parents and families program, as well as a youth and sibling program.
  • Family Weekend/University Fest: A weekend-long program designed to show parents and families what life at Pace is all about. Activities are scheduled over two days, and include student performances and presentations, tours, and off-campus activities.
  • Convocation Join your first-year students, faculty, and staff on the PLV campus for our First-Year Convocation, where you'll enjoy an afternoon of BBQ and festivities, a Sustainability Fair, a keynote address, and more. 
  • Commencement: Celebrate with our graduating class every year as they earn their Pace degree.
