Wagner College

Students at Wagner College do "calisthenics" in a tiny exercise yard at the school's former home in Rochester, N.Y. Wagner was founded in 1883 as a seminary prep school for prospective German Lutheran ministers.

The ELCA school is a top-tier regional liberal arts college on Staten Island, N.Y., celebrating its 125th anniversary this year.
