3 College Sophomore

Academics: It's good if you're in theater, nursing/PA, or one of the specialized programs. It varies for other majors. Some are pretty good, but some are crap or way too tiny to even let you get all your requirements in.

Professors are alright (again, unless you're in one of the big programs where they're better).

Class registration is kind of a pain.

Gen eds can be a pain too.

Library is really good.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Just because we have a lot of gay theater boys doesn't mean we have good LGTBQ+ representation.

Not a lot of minority representation in terms of race, religion, socioeconomic background, etc either

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I guess they're alright but nothing outstanding. The departments with the most resources and good professors, etc. are theater, PA, nursing

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is great at getting you an internship/job if you're involved in a limited number of fields (like theater/arts admin).

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It sucks.

Your only decent bets are Guild and Foundation.

But in Guild, there's no AC (which is REALLY BAD), a lot of stuff is broken or really shabby/old, and the shower heads are ridiculous (in the MIDDLE of the shower and way too low)

Foundation is advertised as "apartment-style living" but doesn't even have a proper kitchen or anything, only like a sink. And the windows don't open!! It's also really not homey or comfortable and has a weird sterile vibe

Don't even get me started on Harborview and Towers oh my god

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Please, for your own good, don't come here. Save yourself. I can't even express how disgustingly unhappy I am here. I wish I could transfer, but I'm stuck at this point. Wagner's crap about transferring credits and helping you at all, anyway.

Maybe you'll like it if you're a theater kid or involved with any of their other specialized programs- sports, PA, nursing, arts admin. But if you're not (even if your department is pretty good like mine!) you'll most likely hate it lol

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is security everywhere you go on campus morning, day and night. I feel extremely safe on campus. One morning I had a class in Campus Hall which is the furthest classroom from the parking lot. Campus security was driving around in the golf cart and offered me a ride to the classroom. I really appreciated it because I know that they are doing anything for the students to feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My anatomy teacher is excellent. Even though he is sometimes hard to understand he is very active in his lessons and he is brilliant in the topics. My music teacher on the other hand is probably the worst professor that I have ever had. This class is the hardest class even though it is supposed to be an introduction class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center will help anyone find the job that they are interested in. Wagner offers a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. I am a commuter. I would like to live on campus that is why I am filling out all of these applications. I need the money because dorming at Wagner is quit expensive.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at my college is really great. They do nice fundraisers throughout the year. The Greeks take part in every activity on campus. They have their own event called "Song Fest" and all the sororities and fraternities take part in it, it is almost like a dance competition. The fraternities and sororities have their own floor housing.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school is division 1 and the basketball team this year made it too the championship game. The fans are probably the most important aspect of a sport. The fans get the team players pumped up and excited to play the game and win so make their fans proud.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a commuter so msot of the weekdays I am inside the house

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety isn't bad on campus. Public safety is always helpful when you need them, but don't do much when you don't. They all kind of just walk around campus. We have a good health center who gives great medical advice and help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had great experiences with my professors so far. I had Dr. Kiss and still have her and she is the best professor ever. She is accommodating to student needs and listens to everyone. She is also very sweet. I enjoy Otto Raths as well. He is one of the funniest professors I've had. I get the help I need in all my classes and feel comfortable. I enjoy the small class sizes as well.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have amazing opportunities for internships. Being right by NYC, there are many opportunities for great internships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It isn't the best, but it isn't the worst. Our dorms are a decent size and we get what we need. I wouldn't look for an apartment that's like this, but I'm grateful for what I have. The housing process can be stressful but it's manageable. If you want a suite (with 4 people) it can be hard to get especially when you don't have all 4 people. It is expensive to live here. Socially, we are okay. Many people leave campus a lot, and people are cliquey so making friends is hard.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We are a small school so Greek life is small as well. People join and it's popular but it's not the most important. They sororities seem cliquey and I wouldn't join because I'm not into that. It seems more important than it is.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We are a D1 school for sports but we are not the best. It's nice to cheer on our classmates, but sometimes we are not good. Many people go to the football and basketball games, but that's about it. Not many people show up to the other sporting events.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is neither good nor bad. It has amazing opportunities, but sometimes I feel the classes are too easy. I am aware that some may disagree with me, but that's how I feel. The aesthetic of my school is gorgeous and walking around campus everyday is always a plus. Our easy access to the city is a plus as well. We have amazing professors who love and know what they're talking about as well. A downside to this school is I feel like the students are never heard and our food is occasionally inedible.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity is pretty average. There are obviously people who are racist and not very accepting of others, but generally people are pretty accepting.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are noticeable on campus. Drinking is very big, but that's also how the majority of college campuses are. You will probably feel a little left out if you do not drink, smoke, or party, especially since the campus is so small.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Besides Foundation Hall, the dorms are outdated, cramped, not aesthetically pleasing, and heavily over-priced. Harborview Hall does not have lighting, while Towers is dimly lit and does not have A/C. Wagner College likely has some of the worst housing and lack of options in the country.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: About 25% of the students on campus are athletes, and a large majority of them would not have chosen this school otherwise. School spirit and fan support is generally high for Football and Men's Basketball, but noticeably lower for other sports. The athletic facilities are usable, but very poor and largely inadequate. As a Division 1 school, Wagner College should have better facilities and services for student-athletes.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus and believe it is well monitored. It's a very small campus that is mostly closed off so their are very few people other than students and faculty on campus that would pose a threat to anyone.

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.
