4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I was never a partier but I know some of the students will go to the frat houses at RPI, bars around town, and sometimes travel to Albany.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather does not really affect the campus experience. The winter time can sometime cause a mess on the roads, due to poor plowing. Overall, weather doesn't cause any issues. In the spring it is very nice because you can lay in the park to study, hang with friends, or just relax.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants around campus, some walking and some driving distance. There are some that I actually have not gone to yet. If you want quick and easy, there are a few around which are affordable. The best is the Dunkin Donuts that just got put in, which is very convenient.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: This campus is full of diversity. This campus is very welcoming of different sexual orientations, ethnicities, etc. Diversity is one of the factors that make this school so amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Underage drinking and drug use is a big policy violation, you will have to take a course online about drinking and drug use. Academic honesty is taken very seriously, which is understandable.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are plenty of computer labs to be found on campus, so you do not have to carry around your laptop if you didn't want to. Printing on campus is quick and affordable. Network at times was slow, especially during midterms/finals because everyone is trying to use the internet. In some buildings the connection to internet is better than others.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I lived on campus my four years in undergrad. Now that I am at graduate school, at the same school, I am living at home and commuting. There are some off campus housing available, but not many that are affordable for most college students, unless you find a few roommates.

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.
