    I always eat at Wagner and I have no complaints for the food. The cafeteria is filled with a variety of food that is suitable for everyone. As well, there is a Starbucks, a coffee house, and two fast food deli centers on campus to accommodate to everyone's needs.

    Food has recently become better but still a lot of people order in because the quality is not good sometimes.

    Honestly, the food isn't perfect, but it's good enough! In the dining hall, you are able to make sure you are finding exactly what you want to eat by either making your own salads, or choosing between a variety of hot lunch specials, having a sandwich bar available, and hot pizza is available. There is a separate place where students like to eat as well, called the Hawks nest and in there, students can use meal swipes to get hot food such as burgers, hot dogs, wraps, fries, and pizza. Also available is a coffee station that serves Starbucks coffee, fruit, muffins, bagels, and a variety of pastries as a nice small breakfast to grab on the go if you don't have time to eat in the dining hall.

    The dining hall food is hit or miss. A lot of it is questionable looking, but edible, other times it could be really good. Worst case scenario is that there is always the salad bar, and usually chicken strips and french fries. There is also the hawks nest, but its all greasy foods and you only have a 5$ swipe per meal there.

    The food in the dining hall is edible, but not great. Before you swipe into the dining hall check out @wagnerdining for the food that the dining hall will be serving. The food at the Hawk's Nest is good, but if you are starving, you are going to have to pay out of your own pocket as well.

    When I first started at Wagner, it was notorious for its dining. However, it has been replaced and is much much better. It has plenty of options. At the very least, if you dont like what they are serving, do not want to go to the sandwich line, or make a salad, there is always cereal. In addition to the dining hall, there is the hawks nest, which has a grill and italian food and a starbucks.

    Currently a sister of Alpha Delta Pi, the Greek life is not consuming of the college, but a good amount of students choose to pledge a sorority or fraternity during the second semester of their freshman year. There are currently four sororities on campus and three fraternities, as well as one co-ed fraternity. Greek life is a great way to get involved because each organization holds walks, fundraisers, support a specific philanthropy (i.e. the Ronald McDonald house), and is a very good way to make new friends that will support you and be there for you as you chug through college.

    Very accepting and fun Greek life. Due to local laws there are no greek houses but rather certain floors in the residence halls are devoted to the greeks so they can live together. Even if you are not interested in greek life, your opinion may change at this school as all the greek organizations are friendly and help students feel welcome.

    There is a bunch of Fraternities and Sororities on campus. My advice is to just visit them all to see where you might find where your home is.

    Greek Life does have a presence on campus. The organizations are always involved with fundraisers and parties. There is no pressure to join greek life but it is a good way of making friends.

    there is greek life on campus. the new york state law does not allow sorority and fraternity houses on campus, so wagner gives them a floor in one of our upperclassman dorms.
