When I had difficulty with organic chemistry in my freshman year, instead of finding ways to assist me, it encouraged me to change my major from PT to health education. I have regretted that decision ever since.

From the beginning, Sage has created a warm and welcome experience to myself as an individual. It has shaped me into person I'm happy to love and the entire school, including students, faculty, and overall atmosphere, is to thank.
