PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. - Students at Pace University celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first classes at the Pleasantville campus Monday with hula hoop and bubble gum blowing competitions and a Beatles tribute band called Beatles Faux Sale.

Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman spoke of the rich history of the campus while looking to the future as Pace prepares to break ground next month on a major revitalization of the campus that includes new residence halls, an expanded dining hall, environmental center and athletic facilities, and a central campus green.

“Thousands of people have met here, been educated here and launched successful careers here,” Friedman said. “Many have fallen in love here. And each one has a story to tell as the tagline of the 50 th anniversary celebration reflects: 50 Years, 50,000 Stories.”

The Pace cheerleaders and mascot T-Bone were driven to the event in a special commemorative bus after appearing on air as part of the lively crowd at NBC’s Today Show in Rockefeller Plaza.

A year-long celebration is planned with a lecture series and other public events. Visit for more information.
