3 College Junior

Nightlife: If you're not an athlete, theater kid, or in greek life it stinks

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Wagner is dead on the weekends

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Like I said, it's NYC. You'll figure it out.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Sucks on-campus! Might as well go kill yourself...

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.

There are parties on campus almost every weekend. They are mostly on the frat floors, but they are usually spread out throughout the floor, so you can find people doing different things at any point, depending on what you're in the mood for. The parties sometimes get a little out of hand, so if you're underage and around people who are drinking or you've been drinking yourself, it's a good idea to get out of there before the party gets broken up. If you want to go out, there are a few bars by the ferry terminal that Wagner students frequent, and most of them have no cover charge or a small one. The bars and clubs in the city may get a little more expensive, but if you have the money to spend, go into Manhattan for your nighttime excursions because the options are much better.

If you want to drink, it's not difficult to find alcohol somewhere on campus, but if you’re underage, you have to be smart about it and make sure you're not around when the party gets too loud or that you don’t get too loud. But, you don't have to drink to have fun at Wagner. A lot of students like to just hang out, watch movies, or explore the city. In general, if you want to party or go out to clubs and bars, you have that option, but if you don't want to, you don't have to. You can really have fun any way you want.
