    As tenacious as any Seahawk, Wagner College enjoys a bucolic perch atop Grymes Hill overlooking Manhattan and the other boroughs of New York City. Founded in 1883 as a Lutheran proseminary, Wagner has evolved to become an independent resi-dential liberal arts college enrolling a ca-pacity of over 2,000 students. The location of the College above the gateway to one of the worlds greatest financial and cultur-al capitals was the work of alumnus Frank Sutter who convinced the Colleges Board of Trustees to relocate Wagner here from Rochester in 1918. In this, the Rev. Sutter and the trustees were extraordinarily pre-scient. Their wisdom provided Wagner with a distinct geographical advantage over all other all liberal arts colleges in the coun-try. Wagner is New York States southern-most college and its 105 park-like acres represent the highest elevation on the eastern seaboard from Maine to Key West Florida.

    The Colleges signature curriculum the Wagner Plan for the Practical Liberal Arts capitalizes on the best of a traditional, suburban, liberal arts college campus and the infinite array of educational opportunities afforded by New York City. Students intern in the worlds leading financial institutions. They observe and experience diversity from the sophisticated workings of the United Nations to melting pots of multicultural neighborhoods. They circulate in the citys unparalleled creative environment of museums, media, and performing arts. This is their laboratory. They immerse themselves and are inspired by the citys sheer energy.

    The contrast between the frenetic life of the city and the almost pastoral setting of the campus is the perfect metaphor for the melding of experiential and theoretical education that is the hallmark of The Wagner Plan. In small learning communities, students and faculty explore the conceptual foundations of the arts, humanities, and sciences. The faculty challenges students to consider new ideas, to master

    new skills and technologies, and to reflect and draw meaning from what they have experienced in and out of the classroom.

    A lush canopy of mature maples and oaks shades Wagners 105-acre campus of manicured lawns and gardens; historic and modern buildings; and sweeping views of Manhattan, Brook-lyn, and New York Harbor. In early 2009, former U.S. President Bill Clinton recognized Wagner College and President Richard Guarasci, at the second annual Clinton Global Initiative University. Wagner was cited for the Port Rich-mond Partnership, an innovative program that will focus the schools community resources in an effort to improve quality of life in a specific Staten Island neighborhood.

    Movie companies have frequently used the campus as a classic college setting, most recently for a movie titled School of Rock starring Jack Black (Shallow Hal). The picturesque campus was also used in a fall 2001 televi-sion series, The Education of Max Bixford, starring Rich-ard Dreyfus and as the site of a prospective private mili-

    tary school in the HBO series, The Sopranos.
