William F. McAloon, who helped oversee the expansion of the Pleasantville Campus in the early years, addressed graduates at the Pace Commencement in 1972 and spoke of Pace in Westchester County as a “…place of warm human influences that merge into an experience never to be forgotten by our graduates.” These are the words that inspired the theme of 50th anniversary of the Pleasantville Campus: “50 Years, 50,000 Stories.” Pace’s Pleasantville Campus is made up of its people and their stories. Everyone who has studied, worked, or played in Pleasantville has a story to tell about how Pace has affected their lives.
We want to hear your stories about your time at the PLV Campus, whether as a student, a faculty or staff member, or both! You can share your stories and photos on 50th anniversary website www.pace.edu/PLV50, or you can use #PLV50 on Twitter, Instagram, or Vine. Your stories are part of what makes Pace great!
Upcoming 50th Events:
