3 College Junior

4 College Junior

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.
