The Learning Commons hires students who are among the highest achievers at Pace. To that end, we place a high value upon faculty referrals. A student who is considered a good fit as a student staff member possesses an ideal GPA of 3.5 or higher (Min 3.3). The GPA is used as a benchmark but by no means is the defining factor of employment. The most important factors include: excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a sense of maturity and responsibility, and an overall desire to help their peers.
