The Office of First Year Programs works to integrate all new first year students into the life of the university and effect a smooth transition from high school to university life by helping them to discover and explore the many services, departments and opportunities available to them at Pace.
First Year Programs:
Ensures a successful transition to college for all incoming students
Connects first year students to University life through the University 101, a one credit course common to all new first year students
Sponsors “The Quest for the Cup,” “Gotham Quest,” and other programming activities to help students become part of the larger university community
Coordinates “academic alerts” to advise students about their academic performance and connect them to any needed University support services
Through CFAP (Comprehensive Freshman Advising Program), provide students with their first year advisor and support their transition to major/school based advising in the sophomore year
