Wagner is nothing but a corrupt capitalist business - it has nothing to do with the promotion of learning.The tuition is exorbitant and it only increases after your first year. It's absolutely ridiculous how greedy this college is; unless you're extremely rich, get ready to be at the constant risk of being financially ruined. They constantly charge you for thins you're not even aware of.It's so hyprocritical that classes, especially in the English department, are politically correct to the point of ludicrousness, and yet the college itself is built on capitalism. It is so flagrant that it is a pillar of capitalism, and so it is downright hypocritical and disgusting that in classes you're dogmatically taught about Marx, Thomas Paine, all sorts of calumnies against private property, class blah blah blah, when they themselves rob you of your own property. This place exemplifies the hyporcrisy and greed of American capitalism - i.e. it worships money and yet it simutaneously promotes a ridiculous, fascist political correctness which is anti-democratic and violates everyone's right to freedom of speech. Wagner embodies this outrageous contradiction.

Furthermore, the quality of education is not in the least proportionate to the tuition. With that tuition, you would expect a top-notch education, yet it is anything ut that. The workload and the exams are ridiculously easy. Even a person of medare intelligence can get high grades here and be an honors student, which is unfair. Most students are utterly indifferent to education, never participate in class and are just not smart. Honestly, most people here are utterly stupid, have no knowledge or erudition about anything, have no intellectually interests, and their critical thinking is immature and simplistic. Professors are helpful and friendly, but are not active in their field and some of them have very few publication. Many times I have felt I understood more about a subject than the professor did. They also provide you with no secondary bibliography (in the humanities) and expect you to do research, which is an excuse for ignorance in a particular field. Plus, the large number of general education requirements prevent concentration in your major. You graduate having only a smattering of knowledge here and there. Class selection is very limited and you don't learn some basic stuff in your discipline. Learning communities are a waste of time. Campus is so small you get sick of it. People are immature, superficial kids, theater kids are annoying, and although I am not homophobic, it is strange to be constantly surrounded by ostentatious gay theater people. Overall: If you have serious academic interests and are intellectually curious, avoid this shcool like the plague. The ideal type for this school is a student whose family is super rich, and who themselves are the epitome of intellectually stupor, dullness and stupidity.
