Press Release: Prospective Pace University Students Learn First Lesson: “New York City is Our Campus"

Admistted  students will experience their own “Night at the Museum” at the American Museum of Natural History on March 4

NEW YORK, MARCH 2—Pace University will host an overnight at the American Museum of Natural History on March 4, highlighting that Pace students have the greatest campus – New York City.

As part of annual admitted student overnight experiences, Pace will showcase college life at the university, including offering students a chance to attend classes for a day. Typically the admitted students stay in residence halls but this year they will experience their own “Night at the Museum.”

“Pace students get much more than what’s learned in the classroom, said Robina Schepp, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Placement at Pace. “Students graduate from Pace with the skills and training that prepare them for the real world. Here, the City is our campus, and what better way to experience the City then spending a night at one of the most iconic institutions in New York—The American Museum of Natural History.”

This year, more than 300 admitted Pace New York City students from 25 states and their chaperones will be transported by private bus to the Museum after a jam-packed day of events and activities. The overnight experience at the Museum of Natural History will include dinner, orientation, exploration of the museum rooms, tours, animal presentations, and a space show. The group will head back to Pace after breakfast at the Museum on Monday, March 5 at 9am.

Participants in the admitted student event will learn more about Pace and its academic programs, tour the campus, meet future classmates, students, alumni, and deans, as well as enjoy panel discussions and presentations. The future Pace students have the option of attending a university activities fair with representatives from various academic programs, student clubs and organizations, housing, financial aid, residence life, career services, study abroad, counseling, the center for academic excellence and more. The overnight component of the experience is optional.
