On September 16, 1963, the first class of enrolled students made their way to Pace’s brand new Pleasantville Campus. These students—who numbered just over 400—were undaunted by the active construction that was still taking place on the grounds. Today, the total number of full-time students enrolled at Pace’s Pleasantville Campus is just over 2,300. The past 50 years has shown an incredible pattern of growth and advancement that will propel Pace forward for the next 50 years.
This September 16, the PLV Campus launches a year-long celebration with a day of food, fun, and heritage. Stay tuned this fall for the groundbreaking on the Pleasantville Campus where members of the Pace Community will help usher in the new look for Pace as part of the University’s Master Plan. Some of the changes students, faculty, and staff on the PLV Campus can expect to see over the next few years include the addition of two residence halls, an upgrade to the student center, enriched athletics facilities, and much more.
