Russell Sage College Time Capsule

Sage is burying time capsules on each of the Colleges’ two campuses celebrating Sage’s first 100 years. The capsules include a wide variety of items demonstrating Sage’s illustrious history – including pieces donated by alumni as well as contributions from the Sage Community.

While there is some overlap between the items in the capsules, each capsule uniquely celebrates the campus in which it resides. The capsules will be opened in 2066.
