First Year Experience


As a new student at Pace, your journey starts at Orientation. Whether you are a first time, freshman student or a student transferring from another college, attending Orientation gives you the essential information you need to start off successfully at Pace and provides an opportunity to engage with others at the University.

We have summer and winter orientations depending on when you begin attending classes.

Freshmen Orientation

The first time, freshmen student orientation that takes place in the summer is a multi-day, overnight experience in which you will experience all that Pace has to offer, meet tons of new students, and also get a sense of what it is like to be a student in the Residence Halls if you will be residing on campus.

Transfer Student Orientation

Students transferring into Pace from a previous institution will have a one-day orientation experience that will not only cover essential information needed to be successful here at Pace, but also provide opportunities to meet other students as well.
