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!
Wagner College is a beautiful and encouraging place to got to school. With it being so close to Manhattan, and having students from over 10 different countries, there is a variety of people and places to meet and explore. The professors are extremely helpful, intelligent, and considerate. The campus itself is beautiful and full of life. There is no other place I would want to attend.
