The Race to Homecoming … Literally

Where to begin? This past weekend was a whirlwind of emotion and excitement. This year, Fall Festival, Homecoming and Halloween all fell on the same weekend. And to add to that, my Cross Country team’s conference championships were on Saturday too! For the past 3 years, I’ve never been able to attend the Homecoming game because it’s always fallen on the same day as Cross Country Championships. It’s never been too big of a deal to me....

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...

#TSM 5 Reasons to Join Greek Life

Greeks. I promise it's not the negative stereotypes you see in movies. You might not believe me now, but if you go through Rush/Recruitment, you will see that Greek life at Wagner is pretty amazing. To be honest, I came into college pretty skeptical, but within the course of one week, I changed my mind, and this is why... 1. Brotherhood/Sisterhood Is Forever Yes, it's cliche and sappy but it's actually the truth. If you're a commuter,...

My Big Fat Greek Family

You know it's Greek recruitment week when you see hundreds of girls standing in the Union atrium, cheering loudly as each organization welcomes a new addition to their family. Recruitment Week  When you first walk into a room filled with girls wearing the same letters and cheering as you sit down, it may seem oddly intimidating. However, as you start talking, they no longer seem like strangers but rather best friends that you've known...

Getting Involved on Campus

I did it! I survived the first week of college! I've made friends, learned some new stuff, and got ready to take my next step: Getting involved! Throughout college orientation and the first week of classes I was overwhelmed by the vast amounts of information presented to me from various clubs and organizations on campus. As someone who is very social, outgoing, and LOVES to be involved in many different things, I was immediately...

Recruitment 101

  So what is recruitment? By definition it's a week dedicated to sororities as they hold parties to invite new members into their organizations, but it's so much more than that. It is a week where you meet new friends and become part of a greater Greek family. Sisterhood is not just 4 years of college, it's for life. The girls you choose to call as sisters are the ones who will be with you every step of the way, to celebrate with you...
