ARC SAGE Program
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 psychology. I plan on transferring to UC Davis for psychology with an emphasis on biology and I would like to go into clinical sexology.
My definition of student success is getting what you want out of college whether that is to get your general ed done and transfer, get a two-year degree or certificate as soon as you can and start your career, or learn new things as a retiree just for the sake of learning.
Being a SAGE means being a compass for people who need it. We help them navigate college by helping them figure out what they need and where they can get it whether that's from us or another department or resource. Being a SAGE has shown me how many resources we have on campus so I can use everything available to me to get through college. I would like to help build even more resources at ARC, particularly for people with mental health issues and LGBTQ+ folks.
I would say to think about how you felt when you first came to campus but also how people without the resources and community you have would feel. Like, if you have a parent who went to college what would it have been like without them to help you?
