The school is extremely small, which I thought would be nice because I need to be able to ask questions and talk to my professors, but it is just like high school. I feel there is a general lack of maturity and a lack of diversity. If you don't like a professor in your major, good luck because chances are you're going to have the same professor many times in the future. There is also a surprising amount of red tape and a lack of communication for such a small school which is disappointing.
Although there are many cliques, the people tend to be nice and friendly. The drama department is great and put on great shows, and there are a lot of students interested in theater. Also, because of Wagner's strong theater program, the students who did not get into the "theater major" still came in hopes to get in later and are in "theater studies," so regardless of percentages, there are a LOT of theater students! Enjoy the singing everywhere and the amazing singing groups. The anthropology department is also really nice!

My overall experience at Wagner College has been fantastic! I have worked hard, joined clubs, and forged many great friendships. I love the convenience of the school and I do not regret anything. I look forward to another three great years at the school and would recommend this college to my younger siblings and friends.

We have a horrible football team, which is sadly the only games people actually attend. I hate sports, but went to a few football games. They were boring, cold, and loud. The stadium is smaller than my high school's stadium, and we didn't even have a big one!

We have a few good teams, like women's basketball and water polo. That's all I know because it's not widely advertised.
