  • I am a current student here

    I'm not a huge fan of cities, and we are a tiny campus surrounded by only city. I do not like the location at all. It would be better if the surrounding city was nice and a fun place to be, but it is not. Instead it is sketchy and you generally do not want to walk around it by yourself. I have a lot of friends though. Most of the girls here are pretty awesome. Of course, sometimes they get catty.

    Sage is so small that we are like our own community. There are so many things to get involved in and the cute traditions they have are absolutely fun. Every class has a different color and mascot and you have a sister class. When you are a freshman you get a big sister in the junior class to help you get accustomed to college and to just be a good friend. There are many other traditions too like rally, class sweaters, and 11th hour pancakes. They are also having different things on campus to help make college fun and not all about work. They play movies all the time, plan trips to go to on a weekend to Boston, New York City, and different places. It's awesome here!
