Student Testimonials

 

Connor Wills - Class of 2020

Living in the Honors FIG creates opportunities to connect with fellow honors students outside of the classroom. It  allows a close-knit community to form within the Honors Community, as we form friendships and bonds with people whom share similar interests, hobbies, and habits who can then encourage and push each other academically as well as socially. It also creates closer bonds with honors professors who share their experiences and passions on topics relevant to all majors through co-sponsored FIG events. Overall, the Honors FIG community is one of encouragement and academic enrichment with a healthy dose of social life thrown in, too.

Happiness Orji - Class of 2019

Being a part of the Honors FIG had such a positive impact on my freshman year experience. It gave me several opportunities to meet and connect with people who share my same goals and attitudes. It was great living in the same hall as these people because it made it easy to maintain and build friendships. I am grateful that I was able to enjoy my freshman year with such amazing individuals because without this community, my first-year experience would have been extremely different.

Mariah Palagyi - Class of 2019

The Honors College has been a huge part of my experience at Pace. The Honors College became my family at Pace. Living in the FIG is such a great environment because you are surrounded by people that you have great opportunities to connect with socially as well as academically. I have met some of my best friends through being in the Honors College.
