I was confused upon what to decide with my life and thats when I thought I would choose Nursing. And once and for all I understood that the best college that offers nursing was Sage even the Google confirms it! I am so happy and thrilled to be here in this college that has an amazing teaching faculty. Also Sage college offers great help to all students and you can rely on them anytime you want. I am actually happy choosing Sage colleges and though I am a commuter my friends say that they have good dorm and housing facilities and the food in Troy campus is simply awesome. Sage also offers many activities like athletics, sage engaged etc.So happy to be a part of this college.

I’m a first generation freshmen this year. The staff at Sage have helped me tremendously become familiar with the college and also to make it an affordable and comfortable as possibly could be. I’m truly happy to be apart of such a good and welcoming community. The food is great, the people are nice and welcoming, the grounds are nice and clean and lots of activities and opportunities to benefit the student such as writing center, wellness center which offers consulting. As well as lots of clubs that support lgbtq and more. On campus I feel safe and welcome to be myself. Saying sage was a great decision is a understatement.
I transferred to this college a year ago from a public college. The class sizes are perfect! The grounds are clean. The other student's are friendly, helpful, and respectful. The teaching staff has been excellent!
