Undergraduate Admission

At Orientation, you will have the opportunity to explore the place you will call home for the next four years. Get to know your future classmates, learn about campus life, meet Academic Advisors, receive your fall schedule, and find your favorite spot on campus.

  • Clothing that is comfortable and casual
  • Toiletries
  • Pillow
  • Twin bed linens or sleeping bag
  • Towel
  • Umbrella
  • Spending money (Meals will be provided throughout the program, however you may choose to bring spending money for vending machines)


Families are invited to join in on the fun and information provided at Orientation, meet members of the Pace Community, explore the campus and surrounding area, and learn more about how to support your student on the Pace Path.
