150611 Main Hall in USN&WR Web storyWagner College is ranked among the top five schools nationwide for internships.

The ranking appeared in a story posted Tuesday on the U.S. News & World Report Education website. The story was written by Susannah Snider, an education reporter at U.S. News who covers paying for college and graduate school.

Snyder wrote, "Good grades, glowing recommendations and a first-rate degree aren't always enough to score a job after college graduation. Employers are looking for students who demonstrate leadership experience and teamwork, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers. And those skills are often developed outside of the classroom, including through college internships.

"On average, 38 percent of the class of 2013 participated in an internship during their undergraduate careers, according to data reported by 314 ranked colleges and universities in a U.S. News survey."

At Wagner College, however, 100 percent of students complete an internship during their undergraduate careers.

According to U.S. News, Wagner College is one of only 5 colleges or universities across the nation where all undergraduates undertake internships as part of their work toward a bachelor's degree.
