“Wagner College provided an experience of a real college education, with great training and access to the greatest city in the world. Being able to experience taking classes with professionals in Manhattan while also performing in NYC on campus was invaluable. Plus, the community of people that I left school with continues to be a strong support network for me as an adult.” – Bret Shuford ’01
