During the academic year, our office is also staffed by Pace students who we call "Pace Abroad Leaders" (PALS). PALs help to answer general questions about Pace study abroad programs. All PALs are returned study abroad students who are eager to share their experiences with you! They also participate in presentations to various students at Pace, sharing the student perspective about study abroad.

There’s always room for more! On campus, she’s a part of the Honors College and has been involved with organizations such as Pace Book Club, Her Campus, POWER and the Study Abroad Club.

Leyla Kukaj - NYC PAL
Pace Faculty-Led Program to Italy in January 2018
CEA Spain semester program, during Fall 2019
Leyla is a senior at the NYC campus and is a Communications major. She is a member of the National Honors Society, and has been working closely with non-profits over the past few years to gain more experience in the act of helping others. She studied abroad her freshman year with a faculty-led program to a handful of cities in Italy (mainly Florence). The 3-week program inspired her to want to do a full semester abroad, thus she studied abroad in Barcelona, with CEA, fall of 2019. She is so excited to help other Pace students find their perfect experience abroad, and can’t wait to answer any and all question you may have!
