Wagner College Weathering the Storm

When I heard that Hurricane Sandy was on its way, I only expected to be home for a day or two and then return to campus and see minimal damage, similar to last year when Irene pushed us all into the Spiro Sports Center. Never did I expect to see an area so close to home hit with such force and destruction. While our campus may have survived, many homes nearby are suffering from ruin, no power, and people are lined up and down the...

Tradition Time… Homecoming is Here!

As I have mentioned in my earlier post, Homecoming is a time of year that everyone at Wagner seems to come together and the student body is one united force of Wagner pride. While it has changed much since my freshman year (time flies!), it is still an event that creates a lot of buzz around campus and where everyone, from alumni, administration, students, teachers, and parents get involved. I have seen it from some different sides,...

Megan Irving’s Successful Steps to an All-Nighter

How are you today, reader? Good, I hope. How am I? Well, I’m touched you asked because I am exhausted. I assume you know what an all-nighter is. A night, normally spent by a student, working on a large project, paper or study session. Unless you are Martha Stewart-level organized, you will experience an all-nighter in college. So, for you dear reader, I have created Megan Irving’s Successful Steps to an All-Nighter. Step One:...

Masquerade Ball

You are formally invited to a behind-the-scenes look at the Theta Chi Masquerade Ball. Even though this was a very exclusive mixer the brothers had with the theatre and arts administration majors, I will give you some insight on it. The planning for this party began two weeks in advance, when the brothers got together to talk about how to carry out a party that would amaze the theatre majors. Halloween decorations were set up all over...

The Great Debate: Are Young People Rocking the Vote?

It's that time of year! We walk through the halls and see posters of all of our friends running for Homecoming King and Queen urging us to vote. What we are forgetting though, is that the REAL election that matters is right around the corner! November is sneaking up on us, and while students may be divided between parties and opinons, one thing is for certain... this election is bound to be an interesting one. Many of us students find...

Classes Are The Building Blocks Of Dreams

I never thought I would get a shot at making my dream organization during my first semester at Wagner College. I came all the way from Guatemala to fulfill my goal of creating an innovating record label, and to my surprise, LC (Learning Community) 19 helped me get a jump start. LC 19 consisted of three classes: Business and Society, Graphic Design and the Reflective Tutorial. These classes worked together to help the students build...

From Dream Job to Higher Education: Meet Anna!

Chris: Anna, great to meet you these past few days. Tell us a little about yourself… Anna:  Well, I grew up in Massachusetts, about 20 minutes outside of Boston.

Wagner and studied Early Childhood Education and Psychology. After I graduated I landed my dream job teaching preschool! After...

My first post!

    This is my first official Hawk Talk post!  Blogging on here is a lot different from the amateur blogging I did once from my middle school xanga and myspace pages.  It's also a lot different from, tumblr, the blogs I've had to keep for class and my facebook page (does that count as a blog?).   Either way, I'm excited to tell you a little bit about my journey this summer.  And I'm so happy you're here reading it.   I actually feel a...

Finals Week

So wow... it's finally over (almost). Since the last day of classes was on Monday, Wagner's been pretty quiet. Most people have been studying for their finals and doing take-home finals. I was pretty glad when one of my professors gave our class a take-home final, that is until I started working on it. It's turing out to be much longer and harder than the final would have been if he were to just give one in class. The past two reading...

Last Week of Classes

So! This week is the last week of classes at Wagner and it has been great. This past weekend was Wagnerstock, and almost everyone came out for it. Everyone just kind of hung out on the Oval during the day enjoying live music, a big blow-up slide, a huge (free) barbeque… and the list goes on and on. The radio station Z100 was even there. After all that was over was the annual concert. Wagner got Gym Class Heros to come and perform for...

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...

What is this weather?

So after Spring Break, the weather here at Wagner was beautiful! Everyone was outside, laying in the oval, eating lunch outside the union.... it was great. But these past few days have been so ridiculously cold! I was giving my tour this morning (which as everyone knows, the best tours are Tuesdays at 10) and my face was numb. When we got to the Hawks Nest, the girl's dad that I was showing around, got so excited to see Starbucks, he...
