“This will be an occasion to thank our elected leaders for their past support
for federal student aid, as well as an opportunity to request their assistance
in securing increased funding for student aid programs in Fiscal Year 2000,”
said Pace University President Patricia O. Ewers. “The federal government
provides 73 percent of all student aid; many of our students depend on this
aid to attend college. Unfortunately, federal funding for core student aid
programs has diminished in value over the past 20 years,” Ewers said.

At the reception, Congresswoman Nita Lowey will be joined by administrators
from the College of New Rochelle, Iona, Sarah Lawrence, Marymount, and Mercy
colleges, as well as representatives from the Westchester County Association,
Westchester County Chamber of Commerce and area financial institutions.

Charles Sant’Elia, a first-year law student and member of the Pace International
Law Society, cites a growing interest among students for an understanding of Cuba’s
increasing trade and economic relations in the region. “These are interesting times,”
says Sant’Elia, “travel and trade with Cuba is growing and it is no longer a question
of regional neighbors and some European partners being actively involved with Cuba.
The International Law Society at Pace hopes that Ambassador Céspedes’ appearance at
Pace will give us an opportunity to understand Cuba’s perception on these issues.”

Ambassador Céspedes is a career diplomat who has held several posts with Cuba’s
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including Vice-Director of the Ministry’s United States
and Canada Divison. His work for the Foreign Ministry has taken him to Cuba’s
embassies in Nicaragua and Mexico, and now to the United Nations. He has a Bachelor’s
Degree in International Political Relations from Havana’s Raúl Roa García Higher

in the United States.

Pace University Students Transform Journalism Department into Newsroom for Election Day Coverage, Nov. 3

Journalism students at Pace University’s Dyson College of Arts and

state races for a special student-written newspaper. Eleven students in the Advanced

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – Journalism students at Pace University’s Dyson College of Arts and
Sciences will try their hands as cub reporters on Election Day when they cover local and
state races for a special student-written newspaper. Eleven students in the Advanced
Reporting class will participate in the project, which has become a tradition for the
journalism department.

Since 1983, journalism students have published “Westchester Pace,” an eight-page newspaper
that is distributed throughout Westchester County on the Friday following Election Day.
This year, Pace students will cover the elections for the U.S. Senate, New York Governor,
New York Assembly, congressional districts and other local races.

“All of the writing, photography and page layouts are done by students,” said Denis Hurley,
a Pace University journalism professor and faculty advisor for the project. “We found this
to be one of the best and most effective educational tools to give students real-world
journalism experience,” Hurley said.

Each student is stationed at a candidate’s headquarters in order to be on the scene as the
votes are tallied. They have the chance to witness the excitement and talk to candidates,
just as professional reporters do. Students then return to the “newsroom” and file their
articles, while others report from the field. The paper is completed that night.

In 1996, one Pace student flew to Arkansas to report from the Democratic Headquarters with
Bill Clinton, while another student flew to Kansas to cover the Republican Headquarters with
Bob Dole.
