The Sage Colleges Reviews
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!
I could't stand dealing with student services/financial aid. It was a nightmare EVERY single time. However, I loved the faculty and being a person, and not a number. Professors genuinely care about their students, and do their absolute best to make sure their students understand concepts, and are ready to move to the next level. I learned and grew so much at Russell Sage!
I'm currently a senior at the Sage Colleges and have taken classes on both the Troy and Albany campuses. The Troy campus is more outdated than the Albany campus, so I prefer taking classes on the Albany campus. I enjoy the small class sizes and the student-teacher interaction. One major complaint is the lack of offered classes each semester. In addition, parking can be really difficult, especially on the Troy campus. Other than that, I have had a decent experience here at the Sage Colleges and have gained relevant knowledge that I will need for my career in healthcare.
