I absolutely love my college! I am from the country so moving to the city was a very big change for me. My school makes me feel very safe, there are always events going on, campus security is everywhere and people are extremely friendly. I love being able to walk everywhere and have my classes all so close together in vicinity. Overall i am completely satisfied with my decisions and I would recommend RSC to anyone!

Just call public safety! Even if you feel uncomfortable walking from a class back to your dorm at night someone can go and escort you or stay on the phone with you until you reach your room safely. If you have any concerns about a stranger on campus, call public safety and they'll check it out.

Athletics seem to be a huge part of Sage culture. Though we're a Division III school, varsity sports are popular. Teachers, faculty members, families, alumni, and Sage students make it a priority to attend our Basketball and Soccer games. Those are our most popular sports teams here at Sage. The fan support is great, there is a great feeling of school spirit when games are attended, and there is a lot of money that was put into the athletic facilities. Unfortunately, it seems as though many of our student athletes are only here at Sage for sports, and do not enjoy the academic aspect.
