Come Celebrate Diwali with the Seidenberg School

Join us for a traditional Hindu celebration on November 6 at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems – New York City campus.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, the Seidenberg School will be hosting a celebration of Diwali, the festival of lights. Although Diwali itself takes place on November 7, we are holding this event the day before as there are no classes on Wednesday (thanks, Diwali!). Join us to experience the cultural festival through the Seidenberg community’s lens. You can create and decorate your very own Diwali lantern, which we will then light in a traditional ceremony.

We will also have a special presentation from grad student Jai Dengle about the significance of the day, demonstrating how Diwali is celebrated in India—where the holiday is originally from. There will also be plenty of Indian food for you to enjoy, which is free as always.

The festivities will begin at 3:30pm at Seidenberg School’s NYC location, 163 William Street, second floor. All Pace community members are welcome!

Register here to celebrate Diwali with Seidenberg next Tuesday afternoon!

Exclusive talk and book signing by Ivan Seidenberg at Pace University on November 8

The Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University is welcoming a very special guest speaker to the Leadership in Technology Series, so get ready to mark your calendars.

On Thursday, November 8, the former chairman and CEO of Verizon Communications Inc., Ivan Seidenberg, is coming to the Seidenberg lounge for an exclusive discussion on his book, Verizon Untethered: An Insider’s Story of Innovation and Disruption. We are thrilled to have Mr. Seidenberg back on campus and can’t wait for our students to have the chance to meet one of the people who has had the biggest impact on our School and our community.

A limited number of free copies of the book will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Seidenberg, an alumnus of the school, attained his Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Marketing at Pace University. After receiving his graduate degree at the university, Seidenberg went on to create his career at Verizon. The now former Telecommunications Executive made his way up to the role of CEO and became an industry leader in his field.

The Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems was named in honor of Ivan Seidenberg after he donated the largest gift ever received by Pace University at the time in 2006. The $15 million donation from the industry leader was used to build and expand our School, branding it as the Ivan G. Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. Today, the Seidenberg School is the largest it has ever been and it continues to grow in enrollment every year.

This event comes at the perfect time as the Seidenberg School is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. At the event Seidenberg will talk about his book, experience at Verizon Communications Inc., and his time spent at the University. This will also be the perfect time for students ask Seidenberg questions about his very own Pace Path and how it assisted him in his own career.

The event will take place at 3:30pm on the second floor at 163 William Street. Seidenberg’s book on his experience at Verizon will be available for the first guests who come to attend this one-time event. Students will have the opportunity to network and chat with the face of the Seidenberg school as well.

RSVP here to confirm your attendance.

We hope to see you next Thursday afternoon at 3:30pm! Arrive early for a chance to secure a free copy of Verizon Untethered!
