NORTHEAST-10 CONFERENCE Pace University enters its ninth season as a member of the Northeast-10 Football Conference after four years as an affiliate of the Eastern Football Conference. Pace was one of twelve charter members of the Eastern Football Conference, which was formed in 1997 for Division II non-scholarship programs from New England to New York. The Northeast-10 Football Conference consists of one 9-team standing in which each team plays eight regular season games against conference opponents. Pace University, American International College, Assumption College, Bentley University, Stonehill College, Southern Connecticut State University, St. Anselm College and Merrimack College make up the Northeast-10 Football Conference. This season, the University of New Haven will restart its football program becoming the ninth team in the conference. Last season, American International won the regular season title, going undefeated in conference play with a 7-0 record. Southern Connecticut finished in second place with a 6-1 record in conference play as both teams earned trips to the NCAA Division II Tournament. In the First Round of the NCAA tournament, the #3 seed American International lost 14-7 to the #6 seed Seton Hill, while the #5 seeded Southern Connecticut fell to #4 seed West Chester University 52-32. In 2002 and 1999, the NE-10/EFC saw one of its players place in the top three in voting for the nation's Division II Player of the Year. In 1999, the conference welcomed St. Anselm College, who revived its football program after nearly 60 years, and Bryant College to the conference. The University at Albany, which no longer participates in the conference, claimed the first two championships in 1997 and 1998, and AIC won back-to-back championships in 1999 and 2000 after losing in the title game two years in a row. Currently in its third decade, the 8

Northeast-10 Conference has established itself as one of the premier all-around NCAA Division II conferences in the nation. The NE-10 is now the second largest Division II conference in the country and is comprised of 15 institutions, six from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, three each from New York and New Hampshire, and one each from Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Founded in 1980 as the Northeast7, the charter members were American International College, Assumption College, Bentley College, Bryant College, the University of Hartford, Springfield College and Stonehill College. Saint Anselm was admitted to the conference in 1981 and Merrimack joined the fold in 1984, replacing Hartford, now a Division I institution. The conference expanded from eight to 10 teams with the addition of Quinnipiac and Saint Michael's in 1987. Springfield left the conference for Division III following the completion of the 1994-95 academic year. The conference returned to 10 teams in 1996-97 with the addition of Le Moyne College and then expanded to 11 in 1997-98 with the inclusion of Pace University. In 1998-99, the conference reverted to 10 schools when Quinnipiac shifted its programs to Division I. The NE-10 expanded to 15 institutions beginning with the 2000-01 academic year. The five new institutions included: Franklin Pierce College (now University), the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, Southern New Hampshire University (formerly New Hampshire College), The College of Saint Rose and Southern Connecticut State University. The conference added the University of New Haven for the 2008-09 year with Adelphi joining to fold in 2009-10, giving the NE-10 16 institutions this year. In addition, the Northeast-10 Conference sponsors 23 championships including: men's and women's soccer, field hockey, volleyball, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's cross country, golf, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, men's and women's lacrosse, football, and men's and women's indoor and outdoor track and field. In 2003, the NE-10 added men’s and women’s swimming/diving and ice hockey to the championship slate.

2009 SEASON PREVIEW QUARTERBACK Senior Ray Gregg returns for a second season as the Setters’ starting quarterback after an outstanding 2008 campaign. Gregg tossed for 1,560 yards on 136-for-246 passing with 11 touchdowns. He finished the season third in the Northeast-10 with 173 passing yards per game. Dean Trerotola also returns as a second backup quarterback after seeing action in four games last season. Trerotola tossed for 203 yards on 23for-48 passing with a pair of touchdowns. Red-Shirt freshman Joe Romanick adds solid depth to the position with his strong throwing arm, while newcomers Kevin Smolensky and Brian Mizerek round out the signal callers for the Setters. RUNNING BACKS The Setters return Nathaniel Ford as their starting running back following his best season in a Setter uniform. Ford averaged 81 yards per game, finishing with 816 and ranking third in the Northeast-10 Conference. Ford earned Second Team All-Conference Honors with his best game coming in the season finale as he rushed for 191 yards against Saint Anselm College. Ford is an excellent fit for the Setters West Coast offense as he has the ability to catch passes after totaling 17 receptions in 2008. Eshawn Armstrong returns as a solid #2 tail back after seeing limited action, rushing for 63 yards in three games last season. Armstrong will look to push for playing time in 2009 giving the Setters a solid rushing attack. Iona College transfers Desmond Hinds and Jason Washington, along with redshirt freshman Jurrell Hawkins and newcomer Robert Eversleigh gives Coach Iezzi a talented backfield that will vie for playing time this season. WIDE RECEIVER Coach Iezzi returns two of their three starters from a year ago as leading receiver Eric Ortega and Justin Polanis remain the top two targets for the Setters. Ortega led the Setters in 2008 with 33 receptions and 413 yards, while scoring five touchdowns. Polanis posted 25 catches for 266 yards last season. Ray Carrasco, Dominique West and Kyle Lotwich will push for playing time giving the Setters solid depth in the receiving corps. Coach Iezzi also added Iona College transfer Danroy Henry along with freshman Patrick Lupfer and Henry Burgos to the receiving group in the off season. TIGHT END Senior Tri-Captain Andrew Kulak returns for a third straight season as the Setters starting tight end after posting solid numbers in 2008. Last season, Kulak totaled 26 receptions for 304 yards and two touchdowns. Kulak was a 2008 Second Team All

THE PACE STORY: Pace is a university whose resources have played an essential role in the realization of individual dreams of achievement and whose mission is voiced in its motto: Opportunitas. Founded in 1906 by the Pace brothers as a business school for men and women who aspired to a better life, Pace Institute began its transformation into a modern university, with emphasis on the liberal arts and sciences, under Robert Pace 42 years later. With dynamic leadership and fiscally sound management, Pace has grown into one of the largest universities in New York State, with a multi-million dollar physical plant, an endowment of over $100 million and a reputation for excellent teaching and talented, ambitious graduates. Pace is a comprehensive university with five schools and one college that offers a wide range of academic and professional programs for a large, diverse population of more than 13,000 students in for-credit programs, and in affiliated offerings. Through its Lubin School of Business, Pace continues to build its reputation for excellence in business education. The Lienhard School of Nursing, the School of Law, the School of Education and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems are more recent responses to the needs of the New York City and Westchester communities for strong professional schools to prepare a well-educated workforce. The University's decision in 1948 to develop a college of arts and sciences as both an autonomous academic unit and a foundation for the undergraduate core curriculum has strengthened and enriched the educational experience of Pace students and provided an ongoing source of intellectual enrichment to the University. The Dyson College of Arts and Sciences is central to the intellectual life of Pace, to shaping academic priorities, and to providing ethical, humanistic and scientific principles upon which lives and careers are founded. At the heart of Pace's academic values is an historic commitment to excellence in teaching, as manifested by small classes, an emphasis on skill development and critical thinking, special tutoring and support services, and academic advising. Academic experiences at Pace emphasize teaching from both a practical and theoretical perspective, drawing upon the expertise of faculty who balance academic preparation with professional experience to bring a unique dynamic to the classroom. While the primary emphasis of the institution is on excellent teaching, the university supports and encourages scholarly activity to ensure the intellectual vitality of the faculty. While much of the work has had professional application, Pace particularly invites scholarship that directly relates to the classroom experience and involves students in the research process. Pace has always had a student-centered focus and is committed to providing access to those who range widely in age, ethnicity, socio-economic background and academic preparation. Increasing amounts of institutional financial aid to help students meet the growing costs of a private education; locations in New York City and Westchester County; evening, weekend and summer scheduling; and special counseling and academic support services are ways in which the university has sought to enhance the accessibility and opportunities of a Pace education. A significant tradition of Pace University is its strong relationship with business, civic and community organizations. Offering special programs and services to neighboring institutions and corporate partners, the university gains strength in return from these partnerships and derives benefits for its students from the networks these linkages provide. The future of Pace University will be shaped by its traditions and values as they respond to the current needs and expectations of today's students. Combining excellence in instruction with personal attention, Pace provides the virtues of the small arts and sciences college with the curricular richness, scholarly disposition and excellent professional programs of the research and comprehensive institution.

HISTORY OF PACE UNIVERSITY: Founded in 1906 by the Pace brothers, Homer and Charles, The Pace Institute was a business school for men and women who aspired to a better life. Homer and Charles Pace borrowed $600 to rent a classroom and office in the old Tribune building in lower Manhattan to teach 10 men and three women the principles of accounting and business law. That building once stood where the Pace Plaza building stands today.

Two years later, because of the overwhelming success of the Pace School of Accountancy, the Pace brothers relocated classes to the nearby Hudson Terminal complex. Another move to the Transportation Building at 225 Broadway took place in 1927 in response to continued growth. In 1948, Pace Institute was approved for college status by the New York Board of Regents. Academic expansion forced yet another move to 41 Park Row in 1951, and two years later Pace College received authorization from the State Education Department to grant the bachelor of arts degree. Classes began on the Pleasantville campus in 1963. The year before, the Marks Hall building was signed over to the College by Pace Trustee Wayne Marks, President of General Foods, and his wife, Helen. Soon after, Dyson Hall was constructed, named in honor of alumnus, Trustee and benefactor, Charles H. Dyson. Willcox Hall was named for Trustee and benefactor Byron Willcox. In 1965, the Undergraduate School of Business Administration, the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education were established. The year following, the School of Nursing was founded and was later named after alumnus, Trustee and benefactor Gustav Lienhard. In December 1966, at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Civic Center building, Vice President Hubert Humphrey promised to teach at Pace and conducted a Scholar-in-Residence seminar at the New York City campus. Finally, in 1973, the State Education Department approved Pace College's petition for university status. Two years later, the College of White Plains consolidated with Pace University, and the School of Law was established in 1976. The assets of Briarcliff College were acquired in 1977. In the years following, an international education center was opened by IBM Corporation, NYNEX opened a center and the Hastings Center moved its operations to the Briarcliff site. In 1983, the School of Computer Science and Information Systems was established as its own entity. In 1997, Pace purchased the World Trade Institute, a leading-edge provider of international training programs. Pace University today is a diverse institution with over 13,000 students. For 100 years, bright, motivated and talented men and women have walked out of Pace's many doors, degrees in hand, and have ventured into the world prepared for the challenges of each passing decade. Every year, curriculum offerings in schools and colleges are modified to meet the changing needs of ambitious and knowledgeable students. Throughout the years since 1906, Pace has grown along with the talents of those who comprise what is affectionately known as the "Pace community." The Pace tradition is something in which we can all take pride.

MISSION STATEMENT: Pace University is committed to providing the best possible private education to a diverse and talented student body at each Pace University location. The University’s continuous commitment to Opportunitas must be retained, strengthened and, when necessary, redefined in an uncertain world where many are excluded from the full benefits of higher education due to economic and social factors beyond their control. Pace’s sustained emphasis on excellence will be a constant, which will guide decision-making regarding academic programs and other endeavors. In a world of increasing interdependence, Pace must strengthen its international efforts and continue its significant investment in technology. In addition, the University’s commitment to self-evaluation and civic engagement must remain as major goals. All of this must be accomplished during a time of considerable economic change and in the context of strengthening Pace’s own financial base. 39
