Campus Housing: It is good but not amazing

Overall Experience: Everyone is nice and helpful. The professor are really good and know their areas very well.

Academics: I feel like the overwhelming student body is just here because it was "the next step" and their parents are paying for it so they don't care. People skip class all of the time, leave class, use their phones, and watch Netflix on their laptops during class. It's very frustrating to me because I worked very hard to get here aand received a great academic scholarship. Despite the amount of apathy around campus and lack of intellectual discussion, I have really enjoyed all of my professors. I took 4 gen-eds (one an honors class) and received a 3.9 GPA first semester. Obviously, the honors courses are graded a little tougher.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Gay men are very very accepted. I've heard some off handed remarks about every other letter besides the "G". Racial minorities definitely feel some sort of segregation, inequality, and experience microaggressions. We do have a Black Student Union and Asian American Student Council. Plenty of students here are working hard to make Wagner a more accepting and less ignorant community through activism and education.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health center is great. Nurse Kathy is so sweet and caring. The counseling center is very accessible and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of my professors have been great so far. They really try to get to know you, especially in the first year Learning Community experience. First semester of the first year, you have three out of your four or five classes with the same exact people. Two classes are taught by two separate professors, and the third class is team-taught. I definitely benefited from this model of learning. I actually had a class with the president of the college and another amazing professor, which is something you cannot get at a larger school. My smallest class was 8 people, and my larger classes right now are around 25-33. I have had discussion orientated classes and lecture style. Personally I perfer discussions, but the lecture style isn't even in a lecture hall so it's not terribly impersonal.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most students here want to become famous, rich, and/or make a difference. Wagner definitely has the tools to allow you to do anything and everything. However, it's not like going to a name-brand school. The opportunities will not be handed to you sitting down. The city is at your fingertips at Wagner, so you have to take advantage of what's out there. I have not explored the career center at all, but the Center for Ledership and Civic Engagement is a wonderful resource if you're looking to spend time volunteering or gain experience for a career in public service or education.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team isn't the best compared to some, but going to games is still very fun and they seem like great guys. The athletic teams seem cliquey, but I'm sure it's like that most places. The sports definitely aren't a huge deal here even though it's D-1, but it's still fun to watch.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: As you are on campus, you will notice that there is always some form of security around you. Wagner has security throughout the school to ensure that students are safe to roam all around. I never once felt unsafe on campus.

Overall Experience: Professors are truly invested in each student. They are always available and willing to help. Personally, I did not want to be 1 of the 100 students in a classroom - I wanted student and professor interaction. Wagner classes range from 20-30 students with professors working with each and every student.

Overall Experience: We constantly receive emails for job opportunities or internship opportunities. Wagner makes sure that students will leave with an excellent education and have some type of job or internship for every student.

Campus Housing: Wagner College has one of the most beautiful campuses that I've been to. Hence, there's always a movie set taking place to get our gorgeous building, Main Hall, in their clips. Wagner classrooms and bathrooms are always fairly cleaned. Students feel very safe on campus and are always walking throughout campus without a concern.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Unfortunately, Wagner does not have some type of housing for Greek students. Yet, there are still many students that take part of Greek life and love it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Wagner College has many sports that are consider D1. Students are constantly in the know with all events that are taking place and how we can take part in them. Wagner has one of the best school spirits!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I commute to Wagner College everyday from North Jersey. At first, I was concerned since I commute, I would not be able to be as involved in school activities and make friends. However, for orientation freshman year, Wagner held a three day function for all incoming students to take part. Through this time we all interacted and I've made friends that I am still very close with at the beginning of my spring semester of sophomore year. Wagner allows me to remain involved in all events and makes sure there is something for every student to take part in.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health services are usually quite helpful, but sometimes could be a hassle. Public safety is mostly great. They are such nice people and will do anything needed to keep the campus and every single student on the campus safe. They do what they do because they truly do care for the students on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of the classes is usually great and the professors really try to get to know you personally- which is easier due to small class sizes. This really makes the classes more interesting and fun.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center works so hard to help us get internships and build our resumes. They also prepare us for such internships and interviews for them as well as jobs. They will do mock interviews and help you write resumes as long as you reach out to them. They are on of the most helpful offices and I don't think I could be more prepared for going out and interviewing without their help!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's a college dorm... I'm not really sure what some people expect. If you keep it clean you will be fine and have no little creatures, but it honestly depends on the perspective you take from it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We have about 5 sororities and 5 frats... Not too bad, but honestly most people join to find their little niche at Wagner, but no one looks at you different if your niche is in the theatre department or the leadership program you are in, rather then a frat or sorority.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love attending the sporting events at Wagner, but right next to our D1 sports teams, is our theatre department! Two of the equally big campus life events- sports and shows on our main stage and stage one. Sometimes you may even see an athlete take charge on the field, but be a star on that stage. It is awesome how involved the athletes can be besides just being an athlete at Wagner.

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.
