Ribbon cutting celebration to take place on Thursday, October 25, in NYC

By Brianna Adkins

A ribbon is being cut this week at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems on the New York City campus and we want everyone to be there to see it happen.

This coming Thursday, Oct. 25, we will be celebrating a much anticipated space upgrade for students and faculty at 163 William Street. Over summer break, the construction project included the creation of a new glass conference room, a thinktank style classroom, a dedicated space for the NYC Design Factory, and comfortable lounging areas for students to study and work in teams. The creation of these new modular meeting and training spaces will provide students with collaborative learning spaces where projects can come to life from the minds of our brilliant students.

The ribbon-cutting will take place at 10:00am on the second floor at 163 William Street. A special guest – Assemblymember Deborah J. Glick – will be present to say a few words about the grant that enabled the construction to take place. Pace University Provost, Vanya Quiñones, will also share her thoughts. And yes, there will be a giant pair of scissors.

After the ribbon is cut, students have the opportunity to network over some snacks.

The five-hundred-thousand-dollar project that started at the beginning of this year refurbished and created a start-up style space that demonstrates the community and lifestyle of students in the Seidenberg School.

The new spaces are giving life to the STEM haven and giving room for students to learn how to cultivate their ideas through design thinking with one another at the NYC Design Factory.

We hope to see you Thursday morning at 10!
