Couldn't join us for "Wag Day?"  Show your support anyway!

What's Wag Day?! Our annual "Wave the Flag for Wagner" Alumni Celebration cocktail reception is a celebration of Wagner, its alumni and its mission. Dubbed, "the party of the year" by a recent grad, Wag Day brings together more than 200 new and seasoned alumni every year. It's one of the best opportunities to connect with friends, colleagues, favorite professors, and Dean Ellen Schall.  All proceeds benefit Wagner's Annual Fund!

Take a look at our Web album for a peek at the festivities!

Even if you missed the "Wave the Flag for Wag Day" Celebration on May 31st, you can still show your pride for the school and support it financially by making an online contribution. 

THANK YOU for the difference you make by supporting NYU Wagner.
