Setter Success Stories
Pace Setters are setting the pace all over the world. From the Model United Nations in Rome to the CEAIE Teach in China program to the Eastern Colleges Science Conference in Orlando, FL, their successes are global. Check out what they’ve been up to!
A Fellow Scholar
Alexander “Xander” Tielemans won Best Poster Award at the Dyson College Society of Fellows Annual Meeting in March 2019. This one-day student research conference consists of a morning plenary session, a midday poster session, concurrent afternoon panel sessions, and a concluding award reception. Students present scholarly research or artistic projects completed under the supervision of a Dyson faculty mentor. Tielemans’ work focused on the antioxidant activity of bee propolis, a natural substance that honey bees produce to keep their hives together. Propolis can be beneficial against colds, cold sores, inflammation, and even the flu. Sweet, huh?
Eastern Colleges Science Conference
On Saturday, April 6, approximately 30 Pace students presented the results of their research at the Eastern Colleges Science Conference (ECSC) at Manhattan College. They presented in either poster, oral presentation, or manuscript formats, and three of our students won awards: Eric Casper ’19, Gwen Iannone ’19, and Quincy Doccy ’19.
Every year, the ECSC provides a unique platform for undergraduate students in science and engineering to present their research and engage in a lively discussion forum with experts in the field.
Thirteen students presented at the American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting in Orlando on Sunday, March 31–Thursday, April 4. The 13 students who presented are Lyric Wyan ’19, Lauren Reailly ’19, Josephine Farshi ’19, Gwen Iannone ’20, Jozlyn Charland ’21, Victoria Carranza ’21, Elise Krupoff ’22, Rudra Persaud ’19, Julia Fatum ’20, Madison Ames ’20, Jillian Couglin ’19, David Gonzales ’21, and Kaltrina Mulosmani ’19.
They were accompanied by their advisors Professor JaimeLee Iolani Rizzo, PhD; Associate Professor Elmer-Rico E. Mojica, PhD; and Associate Professor Rita Upmacis, PhD, who also presented their work.
David Sharif ’19 was accepted into the CEAIE Teach in China program where participants live and work in China for a year as English language teachers. Sharif is a part of the OASIS program here at Pace and involved with the LGBTQA and Social Justice Center, the Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR), Model UN, Study Abroad Club, Pi Gamma Mu, Setter Spirit Ambassadors, and the Student-Faculty Undergraduate Research Program. He has made the Dean’s List for several semesters, studied abroad, and is a recipient of the Indelible Mark Student Award (given to a Pace student who will leave a legacy of outstanding contributions that have significantly and positively influenced our school).
United We Succeed
At the 2019 Model United Nations Rome conference held in Italy, seven Pace students (Joseph Colella ‘19, Selini Drakos, Seneca Forch ’19, Mary-Lynn Hearn ’19, Katherine Ketterer ’20, David Sharif ’19, and Carissa Veltri ’20) were among 700 other participating university students from around Italy, Germany, France, and the US. At the closing ceremony, our Setters were one of only a few universities awarded a “Diplomacy Award” for their outstanding work.
A couple weeks later, at the 2019 National Model UN conference held here in NYC, 24 Pace students participated in a number of simulations, and 22 of them were recognized with an Honorable Mention award. Matthew Thomas and Wesley Goodrich were specifically recognized with an Outstanding Position Paper award.
As part of a new UN initiative, Kannon West ’21 spoke about the importance of education from the same podium from which many heads of state address the world.

Women’s basketball member Kendra Cooper-Smith ’23 comes from a family of activists, and she’s all about challenging herself both on and off the court. That’s why she was recently named a 2020 Millennium Fellow!
The Athletic Activist
This week, Pace will begin an ongoing program of community monitoring, which means weekly testing for COVID-19 and 24-hour results. We also have a COVID-19 dashboard, updated daily, so that we can better protect our community—together.
Important Information: COVID-19 Testing
