What is the SAGE Program?
SAGES are student leaders who serve as guides and facilitators of information between and among students, staff, and administrators. SAGES work in the Center for Leadership and Development (CL&D). These student ambassadors serve as guides, connecting students with campus programs and services as well as assisting with event planning, CL&D operations, and campus and community outreach.

I am currently a biomedical engineering major and am interested in applying to San Jose State University with a minor in materials science. When I transfer, I will also be graduating from American River College with 7 different associate degrees. For my future career goals, I am going to engineer my way into medicine as I plan on applying to medical school once I obtain my bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering.
As students, we all have our strengths and weaknesses. A successful student embraces their weaknesses. I believe that student success should be defined by their perseverance and their ability to address and take action to diminish their weakness. As a student myself, I have many weaknesses, but my perseverance to get better has made me a more successful student today.
When I look back at my growth from my first year of college to now, I am grateful for all of my setbacks. If I could have imparted kindness and helped at least one student with their academic future, my impact was fulfilled.
My advice to students is no matter what the opportunity, I say go for it! Don't let anything hold you back from pushing yourself to be the best that you can be.
I have had incredible growth both professionally and personally though this program. I learned a lot about the school, our students, and most importantly, myself. This position has helped me achieve my own personal success by helping others be successful on campus. Because of this opportunity as a SAGE, I have met many people who have enriched my life.
