While New York City may no longer be Coronavirus capital, precautions and safety measures remain enforced at Pace University. The school implemented prorated housing and meal plan refunds for students along with most classes being pass/fail for the Spring 2020 semester (though the housing refunds are limited to university-funded dorms only). Pace’s Fall semester plan came out the earliest, being debuted on April 24. Its final draft announced mostly online classes. “I do think Pace is making good decisions. Classes are hybrid so technically all online,” sophomore Gianni Bove said. “We aren’t allowed to go to other people’s rooms in the dorms or other dorm buildings that aren’t our own.” Campus safety will further remain enforced through mandatory mask-wearing. Pace so far distributed $6.3 million of the $8.9 million CARES Act money they received. They deemed 16,000 eligible students with individual packages capping at a whopping $2,600. Finally, the school’s coronavirus updates come from an extension of their university website, though it doesn’t appear to update daily. A minor inconvenience in a majorly safe plan!
