Find out what being a Sage is all about
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.
Our SAGES work primarily in the CL&D, occasionally assisting other campus offices when needed. Duties and services provided by our SAGES include:
Issuing Student Access Cards and Universal Transit Pass (UTP)
Assisting with Online Orientation
Assisting with CL&D Computer Lab usage
Providing Information on Campus Clubs and Associated Student Body
Coordinating and Supporting Campus Events
And much, much more

My major is Economics. This is my last semester at ARC and I'll transfer to Sac State next semester. My future career goal is to get the Master in health Administration.
For me, student success is not only having good grades and success in school, but also success in social life like getting involved in the community/campus events, meeting more people and learn more about yourself.
Being a SAGE helped me to improve my leadership skills, and know how to work with different people in a diverse environment like ARC. It also helps me to be a better student. Besides, everyone in the Center for Leadership and Development is always friendly, welcoming and willing to help, so it makes me feel like i have a second family here on campus. I have learned a lot as a SAGE and a SAGE mentor. I learned more about the resources available, developed leadership skills through our campus tour and events, and improved my communication/public speaking skills. All these skills help me a lot to be a successful student. I would like to see ARC becoming a better environment for students.
My advice to students would be that take all the opportunities offered. Don't be afraid of trying new things and challenge yourself. Be confident in whatever you do, and remember that there are many people around that are willing to help you when you need. I love being a SAGE because of the welcoming environment and the people who work there. My coworkers are friendly and the work is fun. The supervisors are always willing to help and support in many ways. Being a SAGE help me to realize how important it is to be open-minded in a diverse community like ARC, and it also helps me to achieve my goals.
