The Wagner Union is the center of student life on campus, and a very important part of a student's daily experience at Wagner. The Union houses the Bookstore, which provides both books and student supplies, Wagner paraphernalia and greeting cards—almost everything students need throughout the semester. Next to the Bookstore is the Art Gallery, which displays work of local and regional artists as well as art and photography by students and faculty. Also located in the Union are the Center for Academic and Career Engagement, Center for Intercultural Advancement, and other Campus Life offices. These facilities serve vital roles in students' academic careers at Wagner, providing support services, assistance in career planning and job searches, and playing an integral role in the First Year Program.
Students are invited to a info session that will review the housing selection process. Following the info sessions students in need of roommates for the 2017 - 2018 School Year can find potential roommates.
Mandatory workshop for all Childhood 1-6 Education students.
On Saturday, Jan. 28 from 2 to 4 p.m., the Wagner College Gallery will host an opening reception for “Drawings,” an exhibition of work by Jeremy Day. The exhibition will be on display from Monday, Jan. 23 until Friday, March 24. Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public.
Jeremy Day’s “Drawings” is a selection of recent work based on three themes: Staten Island, Governors Island and the nude.
Day uses traditional drawing methods to represent scenes around New York City. By exploring various sites of historic and aesthetic importance, he creates a simplified and often bleak vision of the environment, from run-down Victorian buildings on the waterfront in St. George to a twisting tree at Snug Harbor. Images of Governors Island, the site of a decommissioned Coast Guard base, are loosely handled. The nudes are a tentative connection to humanity, simple forms shown in dim lighting and cropped formats.
Jeremy Day is currently a student of Harvey Dinnerstein at the Art Students League of New York. Born in Minnesota in 1976, Day is a veteran of the war in Iraq. He was a recipient of the Nessa Cohen Grant in 2016.
Wagner College Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 7 p.m. The Wagner College Gallery is located in the Union Building at Wagner College, 631 Howard Ave., Grymes Hill, Staten Island, New York.

The Wagner College Guild was founded in 1918 to assist and support Wagner students, who at that time were Lutheran seminarians. Women from the Lutheran synods of Staten Island, Brooklyn, New Jersey and Long Island would provide meals, sew buttons and offer other services to the students.
Today, the Guild has over 200 members and supports the college with fundraising efforts and scholarships.
The next meeting will be Oct. 12 at noon in the Faculty Dining Room.
