Welcome to Russell Sage College! We look forward to seeing you at RSC’s New Student Orientation programs this summer. Orientation is a great way to get connected to your new campus and classmates. All of us at RSC want you to be successful as you begin your educational journey. Our orientation program and activities that we have scheduled throughout the semester have been planned with your success in mind. Attending orientation will help you to be better informed and feel more at home before your classes begin on Monday, August 28 for the fall semester.
During orientation you will have the opportunity to get to know your new classmates and meet and talk with returning students as well. Our Orientation Leaders will be available to assist and answer any questions you may have. In addition, you will have the chance to meet your deans, faculty, and administrators from various offices on campus, including the registrar, financial aid, residence life, recreation and fitness, the wellness center, career planning, and more.
We are very excited for your arrival and look forward to getting to know you.
