Dillon In The House: SGA Pres Takes DC

What’s up everyone?! You may remember me as a once HawkTalk blogger turned HawkTalk blog director! As I spend the summer leading up to my junior year living in NYC, I wanted one last chance to blog to share my experiences with others, hoping to shed some light on what it means to be a part of Wagner. Be on the lookout for some posts where I share my experiences! The first experience I want to share is my trip to the National Campus...

Last College Semester Blues

Hi guys! It's been a tough couple of weeks for me.  First off, I miss Nigeria so much.  I want to go back to the beautiful weather and the delightful people.  I am having a hard time adjusting to the cold ever since my trip to Africa.  Second, I miss the holiday season.  I love everything about Christmas and New Year's.  Everyone is just so much happier and open-minded.  I don't know...there's just something about December and January...

La Vie En LC

When did you make your first friend here at Wagner? Maybe it was during a freshmen orientation event. Or possibly you bumped into them while you were hauling your sixteen packs of energy drinks in your dorm on move-in day. Or perhaps you met your ol' partner in crime within your own freshmen Learning Community (LC)! Every Wagner college student is more than familiar with Learning Communities because, well, they're a big part of your...

Inspire Yourself!

Hi guys! Two weekends ago, I took my LSAT.  By the way, I think I did pretty well on it.  Anyways, after my exam was done, I went out with my senior friends to the city to "hangout."  It was a much needed day out to let out all my LSAT stress.  I didn't get back to my room until 3am in the morning.  I got back to my dorm only to shower and get ready again to head back into the city with my team to volunteer.  Throughout the season, my...

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...

A Non-traditional Finale

Every year, the Wagner swimming and diving team honors its seniors at the last home meet of the season. This year was different from all other years because we only had one home meet all season — and we swam against ourselves, while honoring our seniors and supporting the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The Nor'easter blizzard made it so that our opponents were unable to drive through all the snow to make the meet. As a...

A Meet to Remember

The crowd is going wild.  Cheering fills the air, and all I can hear is "go, go, go" reverberating through the air of the pool.  Swimmers from all four teams line the sides of the pool, their arms flailing frantically in the air, pushing on their fellow teammates.  One lap of freestyle left to go, and all six girls are head-to-head as they approach the last fifteen yards of the race.  They touch the wall, and all heads turn to look at...
