Dear Parents and Family Members:
New York City and Westchester campuses are bustling with activity as we begin the fall semester. We can't wait to meet all our students and kick off another great year at Pace!
Whether a student is new or returning to Pace, we know that families are preparing too — not only shopping and packing, but also anticipating new experiences and, yes, worrying about separation and change.
This new newsletter for Pace parents, which you will receive three times a year, is just one of the ways we will help you stay involved in students' lives on campus.
The newsletter and the Parents & Families section of our Web site are direct connections to University events, opportunities, and resources where you can find information about important events, registration dates, financial aid, housing selection deadlines, and much more. A special calendar for parents will be sent to you shortly so that you caneasily keep abreast of important dates on campus. You can also read The Pulse, a weekly newsletter filled with campus news and events for students.
The faculty and staff of Pace University offer you a sincere welcome to the Pace community and thank you for the support we know you will give your son or daughter at Pace this year. Please contact us if you need our assistance.
