2 College Freshman

Computers: The only place with computers is the library and the wifi here at Wagner is horrible. Its slow and sometimes doesn't work at all.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's a great way of getting involved in the campus and a great way to find your niche if you're not in sports or a theatre major.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: Cars are a must unless you need to get to the ferry then the shuttle is awesome. But going to the grocery store or to the mall you need a car.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Do sports. Thats the only way you will get a good amount of financial aid.

Campus Housing: The only good dorm building is Foundation and you have to be a junior or senior to live there and it is very hard to live there. The rest of the buildings are old and dirty.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers really care about you and where your life is going. But everything else here is horrible.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: You need a fake to go out to bars. The parties here suck and don't happen often but if you know people who go out a lot you will find more parties.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It can get pricey because there are no student discounts and if you don't have a car it has to be delivered and only a few places deliver.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The internships Wagner can get you are amazing. That is one thing this school knows how to do.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: You have to drive anywhere worth going. But the mall is nice and there are good places to eat if you know Staten Island.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Getting to your major isn't hard. Its staying there and getting through all your gen-eds and all the classes you must take for your major.

College Freshman

Majors: I actually can't tell you if I'm happy with my program because it takes about two years to really get into your program and I am only a freshman.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is the only thing I have a complaint about. The health offices are great. The nurses are nice to you as long as you are nice to them.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: No one lives off campus by themselves. The people who commute live with their parents 99% of the time.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People do drugs but you won't feel alienated if you don't do it with other people.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Tailgating isn't allowed during or after any games. When there are big events even if you are 21 you aren't allowed to bring alcohol into the building.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls here honestly cme off as thinking they are too good for people or they have a boyfriend..

3 College Freshman

Majors: Not bad I've had great experiences with business all professors have aphasia real world experience

3 College Freshman

Majors: Honestly the "Wagenr Plan" is a bunch of BS designed to keep kids there at the school for 4 years

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's honestly too strict and holds the campus back from its full potential I mean if they loosened up a little people may actually wanna be here

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle is the main thing that's gets you to access to Manhattan and it runs pretty smoothly

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Honestly most buildings are rundown and the school is too cheap to renovate them. Harbor view is disgusting and that's where freshman live...

3 College Freshman

Weather: Typically northeast weather but the hill adds another deminsion

2 College Freshman

Academics: Academics here are pretty easy honestly like I truly don't try and can get As and Bs it's a sad ecpxucse for college

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I have not partipate in Greek Life. It is readily apparent but not overbearing for non members

College is what you make of it, and Wagner isn't any different—you can either have a terrible experience or a fantastic one. If you come here looking to make some great friends, grow as a person, become an adult, and learn about the things you're interested in, then you will. If you have an idea of the person you want to be but don't put yourself out there, then your path will be much more difficult. During orientation, you'll meet a lot of new people, and some of them will become your friends. You'll learn how to party, if that's what you want to do, and you'll learn how to have a good time without partying, if that's more your speed. If you've never shared a room before, now's your chance. If you've never been to New York City, you'll experience it for the first time, and if you've been here before, you'll see it with new eyes. The whole world is yours, like it's never been before. You'll make your first adult mistakes, and you'll leave high school behind.

Wagner has something to offer everyone, but you may just have to go looking for it at times. Don't be afraid of what might seem like limitations, and turn those limitations into advantages. For example, the campus can be quiet on the weekends, so if you don't like that, then make it loud. Sometimes the food in the dining hall can be boring or not what you wanted at all, so make a quick trip to the grocery store and cook for your friends. If you find yourself sitting in your room on a Friday night, go out and explore campus or see what everyone else is doing. Wagner is in one of the greatest cities in the world, so use that to its full potential. On the academic side, your professors are there to teach you, and they'll look out for you, for the most part. None of them are out to get you, so ask questions and learn—it's what you came here to do, and Wagner will let you do it. And it’s not all about learning stuff from a book. Use your time at Wagner to learn about who you are. In fact, part of the Wagner Plan is learning who you are. Make college into what you want it to be—if you get involved and pursue your goals, you'll love it at Wagner.
