Meet JesseLyn Leston, Student Body President

One of the coolest things about Wagner being a small school is that, if you make an effort, you really can get to know a lot of important people on campus. My friend JesseLyn for example is the SGA (Student Government Association) President. I sat down with her recently to learn a little more about her and exactly what she does for the school.   My Chat With the Prez JL: My name is JesseLyn Leston and I am the student government...

One thousand ninety five days and counting…

Hi guys! I committed to Wagner in November of my senior year of high school. It was a great feeling because I was done with the whole college process, while all my friends and classmates were panicking about where they were going to attend college next fall. I felt bad, but I also did not. I just happened to be good at something that offers full scholarships. Basketball is my best talent...and I have used it to my advantage my entire...

From Freshman year to Senior year…

I’m a senior. It’s seriously frightening. I feel like I just moved in for my freshman year and now I’m getting ready to graduate? What?! I was visiting a friend in Harborview yesterday and I started having all these flashbacks to freshman year. It’s crazy how things are so incredibly different… but at the same time so many things haven't changed at all. I'm still the same Taylor Swift obsessed girl, with an obnoxiously blue room that...

How Ugo Gets Through A Day

Hi guys! I'm not really a people person.  Well, I am, but people annoy me really easily.  I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.  I'm quiet and I'm shy.  However, once you get to know me and I get to know you, we're cool.  There are some people I don't bother talking to because I just don't think it's necessary.  It's kind of a bad quality trait.  My mom hates it!  Every family party we go to, there's everyone else and then...

Break Out of That Shell

In between moving from country to country and changing schools, I have met a lot of different people. People with different languages, different beliefs, different values and even religions. At first it was a struggle for me, because I was raised in a certain way and took on most of my parents' values, including their political opinions. As time went on I changed, which was pretty much the greatest thing that could have happened to...

Why you should travel Internationally

Before I begin, here's the results of the "What do you like most about Winter" poll: Snuggling Up: 33% I like nothing about Winter: 33% Snow Days: 33% 1 person likes studying for their MCAT and no one likes Snow ball fights or making snowmen/snow angels. 72% of college students go to college in the state they live, 16% go to college that's neither in their home state or a bordering state. That's eye opening to me as I look at early...

Winter Doom and Gloom

It's almost the end of the most dreaded season...WINTER. Yes, that is a very biased statement coming from someone who grew up without seasons in California, but I feel like the growing consensus on campus is that winter is not the most favored season. I don't want to be too much of a negative Nancy, so give me your opinion in the poll below! I'll share the results in next week's post! What do you like most about Winter? What do you...

SEN10RS to SEN14RS

Recently I've been feeling a lot of emotions about being a senior and how far I've come, so I decided to get my fellow seniors' input on this week's post idea. I asked my peers, "If you could speak to yourself as a high school senior, what would you say?" Here are some of the responses.  "Don't worry, you change majors." "If I could go back and tell myself something, I would tell myself not to regret anything and just live life the...

A Word of Academic Advice

It has been a quiet week in Wagner's social life, but you all have to get ready for the upcoming posts because they will be great. So, before going into the usual Christian blog posts, I would like to have my academic life known. Despite being only a sophomore at Wagner College, I do have some experiences and some advice for any incoming freshmen. It is fine if you do not know what major you plan to have when you come here. It is a...

Frequently Asked Questions

Hey everyone, So I was giving a tour yesterday morning, and as I was answering the families’ questions, I thought about all of the things I wondered before I came to college and thought I'd share some of the more frequently asked questions that I get from perspective students and their parents. Are the floors in Harborview coed? Yes. Most of the floors in Harborview are coed but there are some floors that are not. On the floors that...

Long Distances

Hey all! Sorry it has taken so long to write. I got back from Spring Break( which I spent back home) and got caught up in the whirl of mid-terms and rehearsals and I totally lost it!

I love it here at Wagner and I would not change my decision to come here, but I do get homesick...

Ask questions!!!

Hey everyone, I'm Bryan, I'm a first year student here at Wagner. One of the things that I do here on campus is I'm a student ambassador. Personally, I love it.
