The Kallista yearbook is a student-run publication on Wagner’s campus. Our staff creates an annual memoir of occurrences throughout Wagner’s community.
Due to staff issues, the production of the 2012, 2013 and 2014-yearbooks have been delayed and will shipped ASAP.
All students are free to email or drop off any pictures to us that you would like us to consider including in the yearbook. Please include
the names of the people in the picture, and ensure that they are all students of Wagner.

If you are not interested in being an Editor of the Kallista staff, we are also looking for “staffers” who will write stories and place pictures into the spreads created by the Editors. We are looking for experienced and non-experienced individuals to input their ideas of design, creative writing, and leadership to give our students, staff, alumni, and community the best book they have seen Wagner publish thus far. If you are a part of another publication on campus, you are permitted to be on both staffs. Kallista does not mandate that you are only a “yearbookee.” Please contact, Jamie Worker at email@example.com if you are interested.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to stop by the Dean of Campus Life Office in Union 221, or call us at 718-390-3423.
