Advertising Teams
At the 2018 American Advertising Federation's (AAF) National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC), both Pace teams achieved very strong results in two separate district competitions. In the first competition, the Pace Pleasantville Advertising Team came in second, beating all teams except the one who went on to win the national competition. In the second competition, the New York City Advertising Team came in first in the Presentation category and came in third place overall among nine teams competing. The top three teams were all within a few points of each other.

Beta Gamma Sigma
Lubin's Beta Gamma Sigma chapter has been awarded "Highest Honors" for 2017-2018. The chapter has been awarded this distinction every year by the national organization since 2014. Only 10% of the 550+ international BGS chapters receive this recognition. Every year, BGS students attend the BGS Global Leadership Summit. In 2018, three students - Dhruvi Gandhi, Mikela Stevkovski, and Sydney Mattone - won the GLS Case Competition for their categories. In 2016, Professor Jessica Magaldi was awarded the Beta Gamma Sigma Outstanding Chapter Advisor Award. This distinction is awarded to one chapter advisor among all of the international chapters of the society.
