About Jennifer Stuart
“My transition to Sage as a transfer student has been wonderful,” said Business Administration major Jennifer Stuart. “If I could go back and make a different choice about college, I would have much rather gone to Sage for all four years.”
Jennifer is making the most of her two years at Russell Sage College: she’s been a member of the women’s field hockey team; is one of the leaders of Sage’s Food Hub, which addresses food insecurity among students; and she’s complementing her business major with a concentration in marketing and a minor in Graphic and Media Design.
She just completed an intense sales internship where she had the opportunity to earn her New York insurance license, and now she’s assisting a professor who is launching a business.
“I was craving a small campus environment,” said Jennifer of entering Sage as a junior, after starting college at a large university. “I like how Sage is super close-knit and small, and I can have those closer personal relationships with professors.”
She said she was attracted to a business degree for its flexibility.
“A business major can work for any company, from engineering to cosmetics,” she said. “It left a lot of openness for me to decide what I wanted to do. I’ve been thinking about using my business skills to work for a nonprofit.”
That’s her near-term goal.
“I have a dream of opening up a coffee shop,” she added. “That’s something that I really want to do someday. I don’t know how far in the future, but it’s definitely a goal.”
