This is an amazing opportunity for the Wagner community to come together and celebrate the past, present, and future of our great institution. Wagner Weekend gives all Seahawks the chance to relive old memories and create new ones.
The weekend’s festivities will feature both Homecoming and Reunion activities to enjoy with your friends and family. This year's weekend kicks off on Friday with a 50th Reunion Golden Seahawks Luncheon, followed in the evening by student and family activities, and the Grand Celebration for alumni! During the Grand Celebration, we will honor our anniversary class years, the 2022 alumni award recipients, and celebrate with dinner and dancing! Saturday’s festivities include a Memorial Service featuring the alumni and student choir, an affinity group gathering, and the Hall of Fame Induction. Then, join us on the Oval for food, fun, and entertainment. We will enjoy fare from some of Staten Island's favorite restaurants and alumni-owned businesses. Celebrate with music, interactive games, and our Float Parade, a long-standing tradition dating back 50 years.
Please note, events are subject to change as we abide by NYC guidelines and Wagner protocols.
