New Student Orientation Schedule - Spring 2021

Hello New Seahawks:

Welcome to Wagner College!  

As a new member of our community, we invite you to review the Student Handbook to review Wagner College policies and procedures. Additionally, all new students are expected to:

  1. Attend mandatory live online orientation meetings –  you will be contacted by a Community Leader in early January 2021.
  2. Complete virtual orientation modules on your own via Presence, with careful attention on modules such as alcohol education, sexual assault prevention, and staying healthy on campus. 

You have many services available to you, as well as staff who are designated to assist you based on your circumstances. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of Campus Life should you need assistance.

Congratulations on becoming a Seahawk and joining the Wagner Family!  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or and be sure to follow: @wagnercampuslife  and @wagnercollege on Instagram!
