The Sage Community

Learning happens everywhere. The Office of Student Life provides programs, services and opportunities for you to get involved in activities outside the classroom — from working on The Rev, our literary magazine, to playing varsity sports or intramural ultimate frisbee. We’re involved in many aspects of your college life: housing and dining, exercising and competing, clubs and organizations, leadership and teamwork, activities and events and campus traditions. In other words, we complete your college experience.

“The best part about events and activities [at Russell Sage College] is that they are student-driven.”

Athletics are an important part of the college experience for many students — both on the field and in the stands. Our Athletics Department now hosts 21 varsity teams, including men’s and women’s basketball, soccer and tennis. We compete in the NCAA Division III Empire 8 Conference.


Our community extends from Albany and Troy throughout the world — wherever you are, you’re never too far from Russell Sage.
