Wagner Weekend Schedule of Events

Schedule of Events

Friday, October 1 - Saturday, October 2, 2021

 

Get ready for a truly unforgettable weekend—because it’s not just one event, it’s two. For the first time in Wagner history, we’re bringing together the best parts of our beloved Homecoming and Reunion traditions. All Seahawks, alumni, students, parents, faculty & staff, and more, will reunite for a chance to relive memories and make new ones. It’s been a tumultuous year, but we’ve emerged stronger than ever, and we’re ready to have fun. Together, we’ll celebrate the past, present, and future of Wagner at Wagner Weekend!

This year's weekend kicks off on Friday with student-oriented activities and the Grand Celebration for alumni! During the Grand Celebration, we will honor our reunion anniversary class years, the 2020 alumni award recipients, and celebrate with hors d'oeuvres and dancing! Saturday’s festivities include a Memorial Service featuring the alumni and student choir, the Golden Seahawks Luncheon and more. Then, we’ll all meet on the Oval for a variety of food options from some of Staten Island's favorite restaurants and alumni-owned businesses. We'll have music, entertainment, interactive games, and the return of our Float Parade, a long-standing tradition dating back 50 years that we will celebrate this year.

It’s finally time to come home to Wagner College! This will be a celebration you won’t want to miss. And we won’t want to miss you!
