Graduate Assistants

Nicholas Wang
Hi! I’m Nick Wang, the Graduate Assistant for Campus-Wide Programming. I advise the SGA’s Programming Board and help make large-scale events, such as Homecoming and Upperclassmen Takeover happen! My undergraduate years were spent studying Childhood Education with a concentration in Art and leadership positions in Greek Life and various student organizations. I am enrolled in the School of Education’s 5-year combined degree program, currently studying Educational Technology. I’m from Staten Island, New York and I want to go into the culinary field in the future.

Melissa Adolphe
My name is Melissa Adolphe, and I am the Graduate Assistant for Orientation & Transitions. I graduated from Pace University in the Winter of 2015 with a B.A in Applied Psychology & Human Relations. I am now currently in the 60- credit Master’s program for Mental Health Counseling. I enjoy traveling and spending quality time with close friends and family.

Imerlyn Ventura
Hello, I'm one of the Graduate Assistants for Fraternity and Sorority Life. I am currently a 5th year student in a combined degree program acquiring my BBA/MBA in Public Accounting. In the future, I plan to work in a Big Four Accounting firm. I'm from the garden state of New Jersey but with a city heart. I love to travel, meet new people, and watch comedies.

Daniel Garcia
I'm Dan Garcia and I am the Graduate Assistant for Leadership Initiatives on the Pleasantville Campus. I received my undergraduate degree in Applied Psychology & Human Relations from Pace University this past Spring and am currently in the graduate program in Counseling. I'm hoping that in time I'll be able to continue going back to school to pursue another graduate degree in Public Policy and potentially a degree in Law. As long as I am at Pace, I will look forward to developing our future leaders.

Destiny Reid
Hello! My name is Destiny Reid and I'm currently one of the Graduate Assistants for Fraternity & Sorority Life. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Management from Pace and I'm currently in my last year of the Media and Communication Arts Master's program. In the future, I hope to be working in the entertainment industry (preferably television) possibly doing production. In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing, listening to music and traveling the world.
