Russell Sage College Orientation Leaders

Welcome to Russell Sage College! We look forward to seeing you on August 25th for a full weekend of Orientation Activities.  Orientation is a great way to get connected to your new campus.   All of us at RSC want you to be successful as you begin your educational journey.  The weekend programs and activities have been planned with your success in mind.  Attending the sessions will help you to be better informed and feel more at home before your classes begin on August 29th.  Fall Start Up/Welcome Weekend Orientation is a requirement for all First Year Students and is highly recommended for transfer students.  All meals will be provided in the McKinstry Dining Hall for both resident and commuter students.

During the weekend, there will be plenty of time to get to know your new classmates and meet and talk with returning students as well.  Our Orientation Leaders & Mentors, will be available all weekend to assist and answer any questions you may have.

I am very excited for your arrival and look forward to getting to know you.
