The Sage Colleges dedicated a new and unique student lounge space in the Armory at Sage. The Renaissance Room is a new multipurpose creative space that was made possible by a generous donation from the Renaissance Corporation of Albany. The Renaissance Corporation of Albany was formed in 1997 by Morris “Marty” Silverman to collaborate and support the efforts of the surrounding educational organizations in the University Heights area, including Sage College of Albany. Sage President Susan Scrimshaw and Renaissance Corporation President Carla Chiaro were among those who gathered to cut the ribbon and officially open the room. The ceiling, skylight casings, and all the ceiling and baseboard trim were all re-purposed from the bleachers in Sage’s Kahl Campus Center gym that were replaced in 2014.
