The Student Life Office plans Sage’s annual Family Weekend event across both campuses in the fall

Save the Dates: October 2 -3 , 2021

In Fall 2021, Family Weekend will be celebrated on the Albany and Troy campuses on the first weekend of October. We invite you to celebrate all that Russell Sage has to offer by joining us for our Family Weekend celebration: October 2-3, 2021.

In accordance with the College’s current campus visitor policy, all Family Weekend participants aged 12+ must provide proof of COVID vaccination at check-in. On campus, masks must be worn indoors at all times, except when seated and eating in a dining facility or when in a private room. Children aged 2-12 who are not vaccinated must wear face masks at all times (including outdoors). We thank you in advance for your cooperation with these measures in order to support the safety of our community.

We hope you will join us for a fun weekend of free events across both campuses in Albany and Troy. Check out the schedule of events below and register online by September 27 so we can prepare for your arrival.

We hope to see you at Family Weekend!
