This last week, the New York City campus went above and beyond and had Indie Pop band AJR on campus where they spoke about their rise to fame through YouTube. However, the Pleasantville campus is taking a step to aid cancer research by hosting their annual relay for life. The relay, that lasted until 3 a.m., will donate all of its proceeds to cancer societies.


All Pace affiliated events are open to students from both campuses, however the dates and times can prohibit students from attending certain events. For example, the New York City campus hosted famous actor Bradley Cooper for a question and answer session this October without promotion for student attendance. AJR appeared on a Wednesday afternoon which made it nearly impossible from students from the Pleasantville campus to attend due to their academic schedule.
