Around 100 Pace University students must quarantine in a hotel room before they can come back to the Pleasantville campus.

Daniel Ho is just a few days into his two-week state-mandated quarantine. His isolation is required because he's from Jacksonville, Florida.

"You are alone in a hotel room and it could get scary sometimes," he says.

Ho gets three meals a day, mental health support and virtual wellness activities to make the time go by. He says he's been spending most of his time preparing for his classes.

"You always have to make the best out of everything, and I've had a lot of support from the school," he says.

Pace University's Interim Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, Dean for Students Rachel Carpenter says the school has Quarantine Support Coordinators monitoring the students' needs.

These are the activities that build leadership skills.”

Ms. Carpenter is also the director of student development and activities, a post that encourages students to be socially proactive by joining Greek organizations as well as clubs.
