  • 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.
