  • New Student Welcome
  • Arriving for Orientation is just the beginning of your Sage journey.

    Welcome NEW Students! 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 college community. We are anxiously awaiting your arrival at Sage!

    Members of the Russell Sage Community across both campuses and from a variety of offices are already preparing for your arrival.

    New Student Orientation involves three Key Components

    • Half-Day Summer Orientation Sessions to help you get READY to start your journey.
    • A Three-Day Orientation Program just prior to the start of classes to get you SET for success.
    • RSC 101, a one-semester course for first year students, to help you GO for your goals!

    Check out Russell Sage’s comprehensive Orientation Site for more details about our upcoming orientation sessions.
