The people the have employed as public safety officers are really rude with the exception of one older gentleman. They are very lazy, and will go out of their way to make things inconvenient, we have to pay a $500 studio fee and the public safety officers will sometimes refuse to open said studios. I've personally received a parking ticket for not having a sticker when I did in fact have a parking sticker in plain sight on my rear view mirror where it was supposed to be.

My major does not have many classes that are offered and also the times usually conflict. I wish there was more guidance for my major and a wider variety of classes so that I would be able to have a certain concentration in history. My professors have always been absolutely amazing in their teaching though and are very knowledgable on the topics they teach.

The computer labs are extremely small and the internet if very slow. Many times, when there are many students on the computers, the computer will run slow and actually crash. This is frustrating when there is only limited time to spend on projects.

I went to Russell Sage because it was close to home and an extremely respected college. Throughout college, I have realized what I am passionate about and that has been history. Although I love my professors, I feel that their is not enough classes in my field or enough scholarship for students in my field. Also, I believe that if their was better communication at my school that professors and the staff would be on the same page

There are rarely spots close to UHCS or Froman Hall but the Armory is available for students and staff

They have been getting rid of majors slowly and having less and less teachers for each dept. I came in as a double major of Communications and business, which both were elimated my freshman year and I was not told. However, there is a design your own major which you can take class at all the surrending colleges under the Hudson Agreement.

There are tons of place to eat in the area. Surrend by many small towns and max of 10 minutes away from Applebees, McD's, Joes Crab shack, Panera and many other favorites.

In downtown Troy there are nice shops, food chains, and beautifully constructed buildings to visit. However, the dingy and dull atmosphere of downtown Troy is overcome with locals who walk through the Sage campus. It is nice, however, to have RPI students to interact with just up the hill.

As a freshman I did not enjoy my room at Kellas Quad but liked the people I lived around. Throughout my 4 years as an RSC student, my most memorable living experience was in Sapnish House. The RA was attentive, the halls were quiet, and my neihbors were friendly.

Although Russell Sage is an all women's college, there is great cultural and gender diversity. Young men are accepted into Sage's Theatre Program as MAAP students, and men from Sage College of Albany attend some required courses on RSC's campus. There are clubs designed for cultural diversity such as Native American Student Organization (NASO) and clubs for the LGBTQ community (H.E.A.R.T.) and students of all backgrounds (CAPES Peer Education Program).

There is a campus in Troy and a campus in Albany, students can take advantage of the curriculum, events and such at both campuses regardless of which one they are enrolled at.

Sage is trying. The student life leaves a lot to be asked for, athletic and other events are not attended by the majority of the student body, libraries are based more for group study rather than personal study, campus traditions are more disturbing than including. Classes are OK, but leave you wondering where your tuition went.

Dorms and Social Atmosphere – The dorm rooms at Sage are big compared to other school's that I have visited and the social atmosphere is amazing. Everyone gets along socially and there are usually no problems between people. The freshmen dorm rooms are definately the most crowded but the location is awesome.

Easier to have a personal computer. Lab times are limited. Library has decent hours.

The College is very strict about underage drinking and alcohol on campus. It is not to be used on campus at all; no excuses. It could put your academic career in jeopardy if caught. There are no policies on social lives and academics are taken very seriously at Sage. Professor's want to see you succeed.

Students do party but they often times go off of campus in order to have fun. Since RPI is up the hill, students often times meet up with students there and then hit local clubs and bars.

There are many off-campus housing buildings available. They are usually very close to campus and it is quite convenient. Parking may be a pain since there are few parking spots depending on where you stay and street cleaning can eliminate parking spots easily. Campus is very safe but there is always the issue of safety when you live off of campus; especially in a city.
College Junior 2013-01-13T11:50:40Z
plenty of spots for everyone, and right near the dorms, the campus is small enough where you dont have to drive and find a parking space near classes

I had difficulty with my financial aide each semester, possibly because I was granted such a full package. I believe that most of the issues came from federal loans, rather than inside the college.
The office was always helpful and resolved my federal and private loans with care. Although it was inconvenient at the time, my aide package and learning to manage it was very helpful. I think they did a great job, and by sophomore year, were done correcting any package issues before I arrived for my appointment, I just checked things over and went on my way. Very helpful department. (Thanks Carlos!)

Guys & Girls:
Guys usually hang out at the student center. You can find most girls hanging out in Buckman. Graduate students are often dressed in sweat pants and sweat shirts while undergraduate students are normally dressed in a nice pair of jeans and a shirt. There is not a large selection of guys were can make the interaction among males and females scarce.

The facility members at sage colleges are helpful. They genuinely care about their students and want to see them succeed. If you are a struggling student the facility members will do there best to help you achieve a better understanding of the material. The facility members are what make sage a good school.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
