Spiro Hall

62356scr_fca2b88abe328f7Housing our computer center, and the Wagner College Planetarium, Spiro Hall is one of several classroom buildings on campus. Spiro Hall, like all our classroom buildings, has recently benefited from complete renovation. The Computer Center provides all students with access to a variety of computer facilities and includes fully equipped PC and Mac lab. Supplied with the latest technologies, these facilities are continuously updated. The Spiro Center serves as a resource for students, as either an addition or alternative to a student's personal computer. Staffed by a full time professional manager, the Center is also staffed by students who are able to assist with questions or problems.

The Wagner Planetarium is one of three in the New York City area. The other two are the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History and the planetarium at Columbia University. The Planetarium is open to the public and serves as an educational tool, both for Wagner students, and for elementary, middle and high school students on Staten Island.

Film Screening “Loving”

April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us on April 6th at 7pm for a screening of "Loving". (Doors will open at 6pm)

This film is the story of Mildred and Richard Loving and is based on the couple's real life journey to the Supreme Court. In 1967 the decision of Loving v Virginia struck down the existing laws of the day in which interracial marriages were illegal, and under which the Lovings, an interracial married couple, were faced with either jail or exile from Virginia. Loving v Virginia was a major civil rights victory and reverberations of this landmark decision is felt today as restrictions on "who may love?" are still being discussed and decided in court houses and coffee houses throughout America.

Immediately after the screening, producer, Jack Turner will conduct a post movie Q & A about the development and filming of the movie!

Admission for all Wagner students is free but we ask that you please RSVP for this event at eventbrite.com.

‘Unveiling the Greek Sphinx’

April 30 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Greek Sphinx always has been a fascinating topic. From the Renaissance to the present day there has been much speculation about the figure. Its encounter with Oedipus as well as the famous riddle are the main part of the mystery, and its true nature and function have never been clearly explained. We shall see that the key lies in its Near-Eastern background, in particular the "Kerubs" in the Old Testament. However the images on Greek vases and Oriental objects are at least as important as the texts and a major source to solve the riddle.
