I love the school and location. However, the financial aid office is of no help. They told me I had to pay $824 and it ended up over $3000. The are unrelyable. I have a job on campus and o love it. The school education system is great and the professors are amazing!
Review The Sage Colleges
I absolutely love my college! I am from the country so moving to the city was a very big change for me. My school makes me feel very safe, there are always events going on, campus security is everywhere and people are extremely friendly. I love being able to walk everywhere and have my classes all so close together in vicinity. Overall i am completely satisfied with my decisions and I would recommend RSC to anyone!
I attended Russell Sage because of the affordability. I quickly learned that money didn't matter if I was constantly unhappy at a school. The "professors" here weren't professors at all. All of my professors were first time teachers (adjuncts). The professors and the students here were all closed minded so a different opinion and thinking for yourself were not encouraged here. As for the student life, there were very few clubs- granted it is a small club. But basically, if you weren't a dancer or a liberal- there were very few clubs for you.
