All We Do Is Win

News Story

A national win, marketing scholarships, a chance to travel abroad, a poetry showdown, and Law School leaders…this success roundup is a win-win.

We Love a Good Challenge
First up in our latest success round up, Pace’s College Fed Challenge team does it again! Coming off their regional win last month, the team went on to win the 12th annual national College Federal Reserve Challenge. This marks the second consecutive year that Pace has won the prestigious competition that tests students’ understanding of the US economy, monetary policymaking, and the role of the Federal Reserve System. Second place went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with honorable mentions for Bentley University, Northwestern University, and Princeton University. All seven members of this year’s Pace team are economics/business economics students in Pace’s Dyson College of Arts and Sciences. The team members are Katherine Craig, Daniella Gambino, Omar Habib, Jozef Lampa, Melissa Navas, Jonathan Okane, and Yuliya Palianok; Professor Greg Colman served as the team’s adviser.

Continuing the winning streak are winners of the Hudson Valley Direct Marketing Association’s Laura L. Smith scholarships. Pace students Braden Bertinado, Emileigh Beauregard, and Sheikh Ali Mansoor Ul-Haq made a clean sweep of this year’s competition, each going home with a $1,500 scholarship. These Pace students are part of Lubin’s Interactive Direct Marketing (IDM) Lab, which allows students to take on leadership roles in marketing projects for small business entities in the community and various departments within the University.

Gotta Get a Gilman
Pace students Taslim Tavarez ’18 and Imani Nicole Brown ’17 will be traveling the globe to continue their studies, thanks to securing the university's Gilman Scholarships for spring 2016. Tavarez will be studying at Universidad del Pacifico, Santiago in Santiago, Chile while Brown will be traveling to Tokyo to study at Sophia University. Tavarez and Brown are the fifth and sixth Pace students to receive Gilman awards this year. This scholarship provides awards for US undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.

And Now For Some Poetry
The winners are here
These three poets know it’s true
Hazing the topic

Okay, so maybe we aren’t that great at haiku, but these three Pace students definitely are. The Pace Library co-sponsored a haiku contest with SDCA and Greek Life to coincide with National Hazing Prevention Week. Read the winning haiku by students Holly Wright, Jordan Little, and Shaina Weir.
