My Internship Experience

This summer, like most do, has absolutely flown by. It was my first summer here in NYC, and it has been a truly awesome experience! I’ve been living on campus and commuting to my internship at Roundabout Theatre Company, a full-time internship in the management department working on their current and upcoming Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. It’s the perfect internship for an Arts Admin major like myself who wants to go into theatre...

Well, Hello There, Wagner!

Hello, readers! My name is Ro, and I am a rising senior at Wagner College majoring in Arts Administration. I am an international student from England, where I grew up in a small countryside town called Morpeth, which is about a 6 hour drive north of London. Nothing exciting really happens in Morpeth… we made national news once when the town flooded, but that’s about it. So naturally I decided to move to the most exciting city in the...

A Message from a Leprechaun

For those of you who don’t know me, let me start off by saying my name’s Kayla and I am not “technically” a leprechaun. I am, however, spending my summer interning in Ireland, and a lot of that Irish luck has rubbed off on me. (Don’t worry; I’ll bring some of it back to Wagner.) This week is actually my last week in Ireland, and I’m not quite ready to leave. But, before I get all sappy and cry on my laptop, I guess I could give you a...

They Never Said it Would Be Easy…

All business majors in their senior year at Wagner are required to take two classes that are meant to prepare them for the real world. One involves a 100 hour internship and a 20 page thesis paper while the other is a real life business simulation called CapSim. I’m not going to lie, it’s a lot of work. I spent the end of my junior year dreading it after hearing about the torturous library hours and high stress levels from my older...

The Trip Can Teach Us Too

By now, most people know that I spend most of my time representing Wagner off campus, and travel time takes up a larger chunk of my day. During the work day, I keep my mind open to receive lessons, whether they be about life or learning a new skill in the workplace.  Most of the time when I am on the ferry or in transit, there is only one thing on my mind: getting home. This past week I realized that, sometimes, we can learn new...

Wait, Real World… I’m Still in College!

I knew when I handed in my forms to officially declare an Arts Administration major that I would need to find a full-time internship for a semester, but I wasn't prepared for how quickly that time would come. Well... it's here and so far it has been quite an experience. A lot of majors are required to complete internship hours for their senior year or at some point during their time at Wagner. It is unique, however, to be off campus...

One Month Down

This past week marks the four-week mark of the semester, which means several different things. It means that I've been working at my new job for over a month, have watched the past couple of weeks fly by, and am one month into my last semester of undergrad... a little mind-blowing when you step back and look at it. If there is one thing that the past month has taught me it is to keep an open mind. Things are never what you expect, and...
