Hello from the Wagner College Admissions Office and New York City! As you continue your college search and exploration, I hope that you will find that Wagner might just be the right college for you. It is daunting to realize that, when you decide where to attend college, you are making one of the most important and far-reaching decisions of your lifetime. Very few of our choices in life have so great an impact on our future careers, our friendships, and our beliefs and values.
The Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts is our unique curriculum that combines our deep commitment to the liberal arts with experiential learning, producing a truly interdisciplinary education that is both classical and practical. Beginning in their very first semester at Wagner, students are not only studying issues, learning critical-thinking, writing and problem-solving skills, they are also seeing and putting into practice what they are learning. That commitment to providing a practical balance to the academic rigor at Wagner can be found in our learning communities, internships, study abroad opportunities, and service learning and civic engagement. Add to that our beautiful park-like campus and proximity to Manhattan, and you can see why students from all over the country and world are calling Wagner their “home”.
Is the Wagner Plan right for you? I invite you to visit campus and find out for yourself. This fall we have Campus Visit Days on October 20th and November 16th.
I look forward to seeing on campus soon, and best of luck in your college search.
