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.

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

Students admitted for fall are contacted in mid to late May via their Sage email accounts with information about new student orientation. Students will be invited to attend one of many Ready Days that will take place this summer.

We look forward to welcoming students to orientation programming on August 26 and 27 and during the week of August 28, when classes begin. You can find the complete SET Orientation and Welcome Week schedule here.
