Biological Psychology Major
Rianna Testani ’19, ’21, transferred to Pace after she attended a Transfer Tuesday on the Westchester Campus. An active member of student organizations such as ASPIRE and Pace4Kids Dance Marathon, Testani credits her success to Pace’s support and guidance which she did not receive at her previous school.
“Pace really cares about its students and whatever they need. I couldn’t be happier and I am doing great in every class because I am at Pace.”
Criminal Justice Major
“Pace offers a diverse range of classes along with a community where you can expand your thinking. I have learned a great deal, not only inside the classroom, but outside as well,” says Deion Duncan ’18 who transferred to Pace after hearing how fond his mother was of the University—her own alma mater. Now Duncan has made the NYC Campus his home, and is helping other admitted students do the same as a Pace PathFinder.
Peace and Justice Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies Double Major
Rachel Salcedo ’17 was excited to transfer to Pace—a university that she says recognizes the importance of internships and provides students with unparalleled opportunities just steps from campus.
With the help of the Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship, Salcedo interned at PAX, a peace-building organization, where she worked with a United Nations representative and was later chosen to give a statement to the United Nations General Assembly on disarmament and nonproliferation education.
“People want to hire Pace students because we are encouraged to get real job experience before we even graduate.”
Public Accounting Major
“Pace has a great accounting program and the professors really seem to care about you and are always willing to help you,” says Simon Frroku ’18,’19, who, since transferring to Pace, has positioned himself for success in public accounting through his work with Pace’s Accounting Society and with support from his professors.
“The exciting opportunity to meet professionals at the Accounting Society’s meetings is something that wasn’t offered at my previous college, and I am looking forward to obtaining a leadership role in the future.”
