The Sage Colleges welcomed more than 200 alumnae to its Russell Sage College campus May 29 to celebrate its Reunion 2015 Weekend. 

Activities included a "Downton Abbey"-themed estate-planning tea and luncheon, a garden dedication and tours, a commemorative brick unveiling, and the Parade of Classes,
during which more than 200 alumnae marched down First Street between Division and Congress streets.
Alumnae College gave the visiting alumnae an opportunity to experience what today’s students are studying in the classroom. 

Interdisciplinary academics, combining the professions and the liberal arts, community engagement, international exposure, and artistic and athletic endeavors are among the pillars of the educational experience at the Sage Colleges. Sage enrolls more than 3,000 students in bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs at the undergraduate Russell Sage College for women in Troy; the coeducational undergraduate Sage College of Albany; and the graduate-level Esteves School of Education, School of Health Sciences and School of Management, with programs on both campuses. Adult education is offered through the School of Professional and Continuing Education, and via the Internet through Russell Sage Online.
