Teller Report featured Pace's 13-year-old student in "German studies at Pace at the age of 13"

Teller Report featured Pace's 13-year-old student in "German studies at Pace at the age of 13"

Even in elementary school, Shahab Gharib was always done with all tasks in front of his classmates.

“That's why I always read my way through all the libraries,” says the 13-year-old who was born in Bruchsal, Baden-Württemberg and moved to Florida with his parents as a toddler.

"Every day I came home and said:" Today I read three books, today I read four books. "" He was through all of the "Harry Potter" volumes in first grade.

"When he said he wanted to read my books, I said:" You can't do that, you are still much too young, that is a secret language, "says Shahab's father Bardia.

“Of course he then taught himself to read.

I showed him a few tricks on how to recognize letters, and a few weeks later he pulled the first books off the shelf.

He was maybe three then.

But I neither trained nor forced, nor would I have written it down as special, because if I were a footballer and if I had started playing with him early, he might have juggled the ball, so it was normal for me. "

It wasn't until Gharib landed in the top thousandth in a nationwide test for children twice his age in fourth grade that the father realized: "That was the breakthrough for me, I thought something was wrong with the guy," says he. "We were really a little proud of that." Gharib switched to a gifted school in Florida, completed all his subjects with top marks, took additional online courses and finally graduated from high school last year - at just twelve years old. An age when other kids haven't even started high school.

He then applied to numerous universities and since this spring, Gharib, who turned 13 in February, has now been studying at New York's renowned Pace University - as one of the youngest students in the history of the educational institution, albeit not the youngest, as the university reports .

Patch featured Pace University's 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape of Pace's New York City Campus in "Pace University's New Student-Centered Space Wins Design Award"

The American Institute of Architects New York State (AIANYS) has awarded Pace University and FXCollaborative a 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape, in recognition of the dramatic transformation of Pace's New York City Campus. FXCollaborative, Pace's partner in developing the University's ongoing New York City Master Plan, received a Design Award of Merit in the Interiors Category.

"We were fortunate to partner with FXCollaborative, and we are honored to be recognized by the AIA New York State," said Pace University President Marvin Krislov. "Pace has been part of the lower Manhattan community for more than 100 years, and we're proud of our long commitment to helping students to transform their lives through the power of education. Our beautifully transformed spaces in One Pace Plaza and the historic 41 Park Row help us bring that legacy into the 21 century while connecting us to our downtown neighbors."

The award specifically highlights the recent interior renovations of One Pace Plaza, the University's signature building on its Lower Manhattan Campus, and 41 Park Row, a New York City landmarked building and former headquarters of the New York Times. The AIANYS jury noted that the extensive upgrades in One Pace Plaza – ranging from a vibrant new courtyard to a vast array of new student and faculty spaces – have improved circulation, function, flexibility, and have considered the building's unique structural conditions to create a "dramatic improvement to the student and faculty experience."

Located at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge and directly across from City Hall Park, the newly transformed One Pace Plaza further opens the University to an increasingly dynamic area of Manhattan, strategically positioning itself – and its current and future students – for success in the 21st century.

Additionally, 41 Park Row, built in 1889, further expands Pace's modern footprint and brand identity. Among the updates in 41 Park Row include a new home for the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, a public art gallery for student work, student commons, offices, and faculty space.

Jewish News Syndicate featured Pace's NYC Student Government in "Pace University student government adopts universal definition of anti-Semitism"

Jewish News Syndicate featured Pace's NYC Student Government in "Pace University student government adopts universal definition of anti-Semitism"

The student government at Pace University in New York City adopted the widely accepted International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism on Wednesday.

The resolution, obtained by JNS, was introduced by Eden Litvin, a student at the school and president of its chapter of Students Supporting Israel (SSI), and co-signed by SSI, the university’s Hillel and the Israeli-American Council Mishelanu campus network.

It states that the student government “was created as a forum for students to voice their opinions on issues presented” by the administration, faculty and student body. Moreover, Pace University “aims to create and sustain a living-learning community that embraces diversity in all its forms, challenges habits and assumptions underlying the structures of power, privilege and injustice, and works to ensure that we are inclusive, welcoming and empowering to all our members.”

The resolution goes on to say that “Jewish students constitute an important part of the broader Pace University community, yet remain distinguishable from the majority by common ethnic, religious and cultural characteristics,” and that the university’s Jewish community is “a distinct and significant cultural community within the university, which Pace University is charter-bound to support, protect and defend.​”
