Clubs + Organizations
One of the benefits of a small college like Russell Sage is the enrichment that clubs and organizations add to campus life. Students can exercise their talents in performing groups, stretch their literary muscles as members of the Medusa Poets and Writers Club, or team up with others who share their interests in one of Sage's many special interest clubs.
Most people here love participating in clubs and related activities because of the release that it offers from academic life. Its so easy to get into different groups, not competitive at all basically all you have to do is show up and be willing to do whatever comes along. - Maya Little '04
