5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The location, staff, and students of the school could not be better, it is a great college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the people and the community atmosphere of my campus. There's something for everyone and it's a very homey environment in a big city. Sometimes I wish there were more students but I can always just leave campus and go into the city whenever I want to feel anonymous.

Off-Campus Housing: Garden apartments available but expensive

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of delivery options...only problem delivery vehicles can't really get close to dorms so food arrives cold

2 College Junior

Administration: Poor grade for parking violations--dont ticket or boot cars for parking illegally in handicap spots.. Worse for underage drinking (I've taken care of way too many drunk under age students in the emergency room)

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Still looking to get some sort of scholarship. Only get alumni discount :(

3 College Junior

Party Scene: dont know I'm a widowed grad student I don't go to parties

2 College Junior

Campus Food: If you dont belong to a meal plan food is very pricy in the cafeteria. Hawksnest is okay if you want prepackaged food or greasy, unhealthy options. Hawksnest is way overpriced

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I dont live on campus, but I have many classmates that do. The shuttle van takes you to the ferry and picks you up. You can get anything you want in Manhattan at any hour of the day or night.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everyone uses grubhub and gets most of the local places to deliver. Otherwise people walk to the bagel store.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's not too strict, but things are enforced when they truly need to be.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: A lot of people get Presidential Scholarships for their grades and that's for like almost half of your tuition. Lots of people have work-study jobs too.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: We're a small school, so parties are hard to swing. Your best bet is Towers, that's where the fraternities and sororities are, and they'll throw parties a lot. It's hard to find out about them unless you know people. The theater kids throw huge parties, but only for theater kids.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not terrible, but we are seriously missing some variety. We really only have three different fruits, and not many vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on such a small campus where everything and everyone is just a short walk away. It feels very homey and good.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Order out, have a car to go to restaurants on the island, or you can go to the city

3 College Junior

Administration: ehhh it depends on the administrator

5 College Junior

Scholarships: They give you A LOT of money to go here!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: ehh, some weekends there's nothings, other times there is, it all depends

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Breakfast is great and there are a lot of options, but everything else is very limited and fried.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are old, and some don't have air conditioning, it's a typical college dorm setting, but foundation is beautiful!

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of gay guys but there are plenty of straight guys too. Majority of guys that are straight are on a sport and even though there are more girls then guys, it is not very obvious.

Administration: Public Safety only cares if your smoking weed and they care about driving you around on golf carts,

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Usually we take out pizza, chinese or sushi. Of course if you want anything late at night you get Dominos.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Most students on Wagner come to Wagner for a reason. Most students are theater majors, in the physician assistant program or are nursing majors. There are also a lot of arts administration majors who are usually students who tried out for theater and didnt get in. Other students who are different majors usually are on a sport and there arent many students who go to Wagner for any other major.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
