Russell Sage College

Orientation Leaders


The first days of your Russell Sage experience will be guided by orientation leaders. They are returning students who are committed to helping new students make a smooth transition into RSC life.

Your orientation leaders will be available to answer your questions, hear your concerns, and share your excitement about Russell Sage College. They’ll give you tips and take you on tours and adventures.

Every group of new students will be led by an Orientation Leader.   This group will be your home base for small group activities, where you’ll get to know each other, ask questions and express your hopes and fears about college.

Orientation is designed to be both informational and fun!   Our creative leaders will guide you through Orientation with activities and programs to help you get acquainted with both your fellow classmates and the RSC Campus Community.

Meet your 2019 Orientation Leader Team!
