Enthusiasm Can Bring You Far: ECSC ’13

One thing I learned this weekend when I went to Providence College with friends, peers, and professors is that enthusiasm can bring me to unexpected places and great people. This past Saturday, I had one of the best, well-spent, and enjoyable days I have had so far here at Wagner College.  Never would I have imagined that a science conference was as exciting as it was at Providence College on April 20, 2013.  I had been preparing for...

2nd Annual Health Fair on the Oval

There is no better way to enjoy a Thursday than to have an oval day. Although it was not a typical sunny oval day, it was a lively one because of the 2nd annual Wagner College Health Fair.  I had a fun time with members of various clubs on campus who were raising awareness about health, fundraising money for good causes, and having a fun time at the different activities. As students passed by on their way to classes, they would stop...

Dancing, Singing, and Cheering — both in and out of the water

This weekend was a jam-packed weekend for me! I have not danced, cheered, and sang this much in two days for a very long time. I showed a lot of school spirit this week and it was a weekend I will not forget anytime soon. Saturday night I attended an event called Songfest. Songfest is a dancing and singing competition for organizations on campus who compete for the top three spots for the best performance of the night. It was an...

AIR — Something We Feel, but Cannot See

Over spring break, a Wagner swimming and diving teammate, Meredith Ketchmark, sent out an e-mail to our team to ask us to lend a helping hand to an organization dear to her heart called Attitudes in Reverse (AIR).  AIR is a non-profit organization run 100% by volunteers.  All proceeds are raised through donations and fundraisers which the organization hosts. We made a Harlem Shake Video to show our support for AIR. See the Wagner...

A Blooming of a New Start

The Northeast Conference Swimming and Diving championships were held at the end of February, marking the end of a great swim season for the Wagner College Swimming and Diving team of 2013. Missing the Conference title by a meager 17.5 points, we were sorely disappointed. Nevertheless, our team had a great meet full of excitement from the very beginning of the meet until the very end. During every event, both in prelims and finals,...
