Russell Sage College announced today that it is planning for fall semester 2021 to be in-person, with classes on campus, a lively calendar of student activities, athletic competition and public events, and campus housing open at regular occupancy.

College officials emphasized that resuming full campus life is dependent on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State of New York. Sage will continue to prioritize public health and observe all required safety protocols.

“We are all looking forward to being able to enjoy more personal interaction and the full use of campus facilities,” said Sage President Christopher Ames. “Our confidence in planning for a full campus experience in the fall is based on our success this year with students in residence; many classes fully or partially in person; sports teams competing this spring; and excellent compliance with safety protocols by the campus community.”

Academic programs that were designed to be fully online will continue to operate that way.

“The Russell Sage College community has demonstrated its willingness to adapt, and that quality will help us in taking full advantage of developing opportunities for re-engaging in campus life,” said Ames.
