Greek Life: My school does not offer much Greek life because it is all girls however there are many Greek life events at RPI which is about 10 minutes away. I enjoy going there for events and always have fun.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are not really any Greek organizations on campus and only a few of the honors clubs actually have Greek names. Since there is little Greek life present at Sage, there is no special housing for students interested in Greek life; therefore, there is no differentiation between a Greek community and the rest of campus.

Russell Sage is an all-women’s college, with the exception of some guys, so it is like one big sorority. However, there are no distinguished sorority groups. If students would like to get a taste of fraternities or sororities, then they should visit Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), which is up the hill from Sage. Students do not care about the lack of Greek life on campus, and for the most part, they do not seem interested in it unless they visit RPI. Since Sage was founded in 1916, there has never been a Greek system in use. However, some residence halls seem to take the place of the Greek life social system, with some residences featuring students of certain ethnicities and people who want to live there need to be able to speak that language.
