My experience at Wagner College has been amazing. I have met friends of a lifetime and am getting an unforgettable education. The professors truly care about their students and stay after their office hours to tutor us. This school challenges you to work hard, but it is really worth the tough hours of studying and dedication. The library is beautiful and makes you feel comfortable when you're stressed. The campus is beautiful with incredible architecture and landscaping. The staff is so kind and caring. Wagner College has many clubs and extra-curriculum activities for students to be involved in. All in all, my time has been a great one and I can't thank the Wagner community enough for providing me with an amazing college experience!

I am in the Theater and Speech department , majoring in Musical Theater Performance. Wagner College's acting, vocal and dance training is staffed by former professionals in each of those areas including actors who have won Tony Awards or been in original Broadway productions which have won Tony Awards. I was excited to be accepted to the program and am EXTREMELY pleased with the instruction I have received while here. It is a shame the college does not do more to publicly highlight those who have gone on to be successful in the theater or theater arts because there are many!
My experience at Wagner College has been amazing. I'm approaching my sophmore year and I am more than ready to start my classes. The professors are very engaging and helpful and they make you feel like you are in a family more than just a statistic. I am a nursing major so the requirements are to take classes like Anatomy and Physiology which are not easy but with professors that make sure you understand the content, they put you in a position to succeed. Wagner College is also filled with many sports as we are nationally ranked in Water Polo, and we recently had our basketball team win a conference championship. These types of things bring the school and students closer together as it is something for everyone to enjoy and watch. Overall my experience is great and i'm already looking forward to starting the next semester and getting closer to my goals of getting into nursing school and becoming a nurse practitioner.
