"My favorite thing about being on the Westchester Campus is how everyone joins together for lawn games and fun when the weather is nice outside!"
“My favorite thing about being on the Westchester Campus is being able to enjoy the Farmer's Market in Pleasantville every Saturday. I love being able to capture pictures of deer on campus and enjoy the beauty of Choate Pond. I think Choate Pond is a nice place to take a step back and relax.”
“I love seeing the sun rise and set over our beautiful campus. Even in COVID times, our student leaders never fail to create events to bring the student body together. The Westchester Campus is a beautiful place that allows students to come as they are to make Pace a better and more diverse community.”
