3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I'm a commuter so I wouldn't know for sure. Buildings look charming though.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: As a freshman I did not enjoy my room at Kellas Quad but liked the people I lived around. Throughout my 4 years as an RSC student, my most memorable living experience was in Sapnish House. The RA was attentive, the halls were quiet, and my neihbors were friendly.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorms and Social Atmosphere – The dorm rooms at Sage are big compared to other school's that I have visited and the social atmosphere is amazing. Everyone gets along socially and there are usually no problems between people. The freshmen dorm rooms are definately the most crowded but the location is awesome.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Despite the communal bathrooms this dorm has everything one would want. Wireless internet, the ability to play on Xbox Live, a lounge with surround sound and large rooms.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: small expensive rooms – some rooms are way too small to be doubles, the bathrooms are horrible on the weekends and there is always one or more broken showers

All of the dorm rooms are clean and well maintained. House cleaning ladies or maintenance workers go into the dorms every other day and clean all of the bathrooms, take the garbage out, and clean the hallways. However, the students are expected to maintain and keep the housing areas clean because it is part of their living space. Most of the dorm rooms on campus are spacious and larger in size since Sage is a fairly small and private school.

Since student acceptance at Sage has been increasing in recent years, upperclassmen do not always get the rooms that they would like, depending on the number of credits they have. Singles, doubles, triples, and suites are available, and they all have a decent amount of space. The social environment is great in campus housing buildings. All students are welcoming to each other, and there is always someone willing to help. Students will usually leave their doors open because, for the most part, it is a trustworthy and convenient environment to be in. Living on campus is a great way to meet new people, and students are very accepting of one another, making the environment pleasant and relaxing.
