"I selected a Criminal Justice major in Dyson College of Arts and Sciences because I enjoy looking at cases as puzzles, with the challenge of finding all the pieces."
– Nicole Riina, Class of 2016

My decision to attend Pace was made at Preview Weekend, when a prospective student has the opportunity to spend a night in the residence halls and attend a mock class. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and I felt I was part of a family. Once here, I selected a Criminal Justice major in Dyson College of Arts and Sciences because I enjoy looking at cases as puzzles, with the challenge of finding all the pieces. Professor Ryan has been an influential figure for me and has always placed student success as a top priority. Outside of the classroom, I am now on my third internship, at the Westchester Intelligence Center of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office. Upon graduation, I intend to pursue Dyson’s highly-ranked Master in Public Safety and Homeland Security, and then work for the FBI or Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF).
