3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was able to get through the process easily but I got screwed in the financially, I didn't get as much as I had hoped. I have so many more expenses that I can't pay for and didn't receive enough to cover it. Unfortunately I'm going to have to find some loans that I can qualify for.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places! I think I ate somewhere different every time I ordered food outside of food! There was a great selection!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The gallery spaces are great! It's a very beautiful college and has a lot to do!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus. Everything was easy with moving in, roommates were great, lots of in-building events. The RA's are awesome. I'm still good friends with most of them.

Diversity: I was able to make friends with all kinds of people with all kinds of backgrounds. It's a very open and supportive place.

Health & Safety: We have a very serious understanding of what should be considered a safe and healthy environment for our students. We always have things like information, education, and contraception at our disposal. We are also required to sit through a 3 hour course on our internet network before we can gain entrance to living on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It was alright, I'm not entirely convinced that the food was awesome or anything. The workers were as nice as can be and always pleasant! The food however, wasn't. I'm vegetarian and there were no options for me on my specific campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My major is filled with great people, professors and students alike! Everything is fun and interesting! It's definitely filled with great stuff.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Everything was very wonderful! I really like that the professors are always available and always there when needed. They are always conscious of students schedules in and out of the classroom. There is a decent amount of work to do but never so much that it is impossible to work through.

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a great and cutting-edge graphic program at Sage. The professors are fantastic and give us so many opportunities!

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life at Sage. We're really quite small and cannot accommodate the organizations. However, we do allow our students to join fraternities and such of other colleges in the area with agreements we have with the other colleges.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: The strictness at my school can be a bit excessive at times, however, its okay. It is definitely stricter than other schools I have been too.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There are not many Greeks on campus, and I do not see Greek life having a major affect on the social atmosphere of the campus.

What's great about Russell Sage College is the friendly atmosphere, the variety of courses, and the professors who actually want to see students succeed. One problem that some students have encountered is the changing curriculum for certain majors, which causes student schedules to become altered and completely messed up. However, problems like this one are usually fixable by speaking with an adviser. Overall, the College greatly prepares students for their future careers through student involvement in extracurricular activities and community service. When students volunteer with companies in their fields of study, they make connections with people who they could potentially work for someday, through opportunities like internships and job shadowing.

Russell Sage College is unique because it is an all-women’s college, and all women who attend Sage end up having the power to change the world. Sage wants all of its students to make a difference, and many other schools do not focus as much on the power and influence of women as Sage does. Being influential is one of the most important and positive skills a student could acquire, and it is valued by the College, as well as the students.
