Wagner is a very diverse campus filled with numerous resources. Professors are extremely helpful and are always available for extra help if needed. As a commuting student, I still feel completely part of the college life since all the students are very welcoming!
Alexandra
I fell in love with Wagner College since my first visit and think it is a great school. The campus is beautiful and the Wagner Plan is a great approach especially with the emphasis on promoting learning communities and civic engagement. Wagner also has one of the best Theater Departments and has been selected among the top up and coming colleges in the North East. The faculty-student ratio is very good and the overall environment is fantastic. The dorms are also very nice with an awesome view of New York City. Students are friendly and the food is great too.
