For parents and family members of incoming and current Russell Sage College students.
On behalf of the entire campus community, I am proud to welcome all of our new students to Russell Sage College! As your loved one starts this new chapter in her life, we hope she will look at it as an opportunity to learn, to reflect on new ideas, to meet new and diverse people, and to expand new horizons. Our community has much to offer your student: excellent academic programs, co-curricular activities with social and learning opportunities, a historic campus, outstanding traditions, and excellent faculty, staff, and student body. We expect that your student is both nervous and excited about starting her college career at RSC. Whether she is entering as a new first year student or as a transfer student, we at the College will do our best to help ease her transition and to provide her, and you, with the resources necessary to start off on the right foot.
We hope that your student and you will participate in our new student orientation on Friday, January 13th. It can be especially challenging to enter a new college mid-year, and we believe that participation in orientation will give all of our new students the foundations they need to find true success at Sage. Orientation will provide them with the opportunity to meet their fellow students, faculty, and the myriad of staff and resources available to support their success. An official invitation will be mailed to all students from our the Office of Student Life, and we will hope you will save the date and join us on January 13th.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact the Dean of Students Office with any questions or concerns. Our number is 518-244-2207. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
With warm regards,
Stacy M. Gonzalez
Russell Sage College Dean of Students
