About Katie Wysocki
When Katie Wysocki transferred to Sage for her sophomore year, she was looking for “a home away from home.” She says that’s just what she found.
“The type of people who go to Sage are the type of people who want to make friends,” she says. “The place is a great big melting pot. And there is such a fun atmosphere on campus.”
Katie says she was also looking for a program that would fully prepare her for a career in the field of nutrition. She says Sage more than fit the bill in that regard as well. After earning her B.S. in Nutrition Science, Katie went on to get an M.S. in Applied Nutrition. That led to the job she has today with the Child Nutrition Program of the New York State Education Department.
“I was so well prepared,” Katie says. “The professors were so knowledgeable. I was exposed to research. I got the clinical piece out in the community, working with a Women, Infants and Children program, as well as time spent in a community garden. All of this was so valuable.”
What remains with Katie is how much her Sage professors took an interest in her. “I was on the softball team, and my professors would come to my games and practices. Just because they wanted to support me.”
After her undergraduate years on campus, Katie completed her master’s work online, while she was holding down a job. “But even then,” Katie says. “I was working with professors I knew, and who knew me. That’s such a help.”
