A Week At The Wag

On any given day at Wagner, there will be a variety of events, ranging from Mardi Gras Celebrations, to Guest Speaker Lectures. So, I'm going to take you on a journey of what to expect during any given week at Wagner.

Monday

  • LinkedIn Night! Staff from the CACE Office team up with the Society of Arts Administration Students (I'm in this!) and put on a workshop on how to make connections in any industry through LinkedIn. It's a great way for students to connect with other students and learn important networking skills.
  • Free Yoga! One great program that happens at Wagner is free yoga classes that take place throughout the semester in the aerobics studio. It's a nice way to relax after a day of stress and get ready for the week ahead of you.
  • Stop by the Spiro Sports Center where many representatives from a variety of organizations and businesses will be accepting resumes from students during a Career Fair! This is a great opportunity for people seeking summer internships or employment to speak with potential employers looking for employees, interns, and volunteers.

Tuesday

  • After your morning class, stop by the dining hall where there is a Fat Tuesday themed lunch--filled with King Cake, Jambalaya, Cajun Fries, Beignets, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice, Bananas Foster, and Piquante.
  • Attend the annual Town Hall Meeting, where administration as high up as the President himself fill up a room and allow students to ask them any questions and bring up any concerns. You can also bring up any ideas you have and the faculty is sure to listen and take note!
  • At night, The FYRE Program has a Mardi Gras celebration! This is filled with free food, prizes, and a whole lot of fun! Events like these happen several times a month and create a lot of fun times for Wagner students.
This is something I made at a previous FYRE event--I know, I'm an artist.

Wednesday 

  • Career Conversations is being hosted tonight. This is probably one of CACE's biggest events of the year! This is an opportunity for current Wagner students to travel into the city, on transportation provided by Wagner, and meet with alumni who can give them advice, feedback, and allow them to form connections in the fields we will be pursuing careers in.
  • Life After Wagner--Art edition. If you can't make it to Career Conversations and you are interested in pursuing a career as an artist, then be sure to check out this event where working artists who are also Wagner alumni will be having a panel to answer student questions.
  • Come support the Wagner College Men's Basketball Game for the NEC Quarterfinal. If they advance through this tournament, they could find themselves in the NCAA Tournament playing on national TV against schools like Duke and Syracuse. Exciting right?!
Wagner students make the best fans!

Thursday

  • Resume Night! Wagner is always working with students to prepare them for joining the work force. Because of this, various clubs will work with the CACE office to put on events. Tonight, the Accounting Society is putting on a Resume Workshop where they go over important information regarding resumes.
  • Safezone Workshop-Work with the LGBTQ community at Wagner to create a better atmosphere for LGBTQ student needs. This is a great opportunity for students to grow as leaders while creating an inclusive atmosphere for all students at Wagner.
  • ACE Speaker: Paul Bailo will be on campus where he will go over digital interview tips for students. In an extremely digital age where people are applying for schools, jobs, and internships all over the country, companies and organizations are relying on digital techniques to interview people, such as phone calls and Skype. Paul will be here to discuss preparation, avoiding mistakes, and the best technologies to come off as the most professional.

Friday

  • It's a theatre heavy night here at Wagner! Our Main Stage will be performing The Drowsy Chaperone, while in Stage One, My Soldiers will be playing. Both of these shows have student rush (which basically just means free for students) tickets as they are available. As Wagner College Theatre has been ranked 2nd best college theatre in the country, these shows are SURE to be a hit!
Enjoy the show!

  • Take a FREE trip to the MoMA on behalf of SAAS--The Society of Arts Administration Students who are taking Arts Administration students and anyone who is interested into the city to spend the evening at the Museum of Modern Art! This is a free trip with all expenses paid for by SAAS.
  • The only community service fraternity on campus, Alpha Phi Omega, is doing a fundraiser called Midnight Crunch--where students can order cookies to be delivered to their dorm room! How awesome is that for a quick midnight snack? I know I will be ordering some.

I only chose to highlight three events that are on-campus per day but on any given day there can be up to 10 different things to do. With all the different clubs and offices on campus, there is always an event being held at any given time. Plus, all these events are on top of club meetings, classes, and trips to the city that anyone can make at any time. It's hard to find yourself bored at a school like this-!
