Welcome New Students!
Arriving for Orientation is just the beginning of your Sage journey.

The mission of the Russell Sage College New Student Orientation program is to engage first-year and transfer students in meaningful experiences that allow you to successfully transition and become active members of the Russell Sage College community. Members of the Russell Sage Community across both campuses and from a variety of offices are already preparing for your arrival.

Students who enter Russell Sage College in the fall engage in our Ready.Set.Go! program that includes our summer Ready Days, Set Orientation just prior to the start of classes, and our extended orientation through the fall semester with our first year seminar course, RSC 101.

Students admitted for spring are contacted in late November and December with information about new student orientation. The Ready Day will take place on January 12, 2023.

Stay on track by completing tasks on the New Student Checklist and checking your Sage email regularly!
