“The greatest thing about studying Interior Design at Sage of Albany was that I was part of a small family. The professors always challenged me to go beyond my comfort zone, become a problem solver, be aware of real life challenges, explore my creativity, and to become the best design professional that I can be.”

“Knowing at a young age that design was what I was meant to do, I knew the importance of picking the right school. From day one, Sage just felt like home, creating an unbreakable bond between classmates and professors. The courses were both practical and knowledgeable and shaped who I am as a designer today. The most valuable tool that Sage gave me wasn’t just a degree in Interior Design but the confidence to be an influential designer in this career.”

“Sage was the best decision I have ever made for my design career. It pushed and challenged me as a designer and as an individual. As a plus, the small classes sizes not only gave me the chance to get practical one-on-one attention with my professors, but provided me with a family along the way.”

Giovanna Puorto

“Sage was more than just receiving an education to me; it was meeting lifetime friends and mentors while being able to express myself creatively. The most important lesson I took away from my time a Sage was learning how to effectively take criticism and use it to solve problems within a design.”

Kaitlin Mangan

Christine Burdick Design

“With Sage’s intimate class sizes, I not only made great personal connections but was allowed ample time with professors, which helped explore my strengths and give me the additional support that kept me motivated and inspired.”

Alicia L’Heureux

“My experience at Sage allowed me to think about unique ways the world operates and how design impacts how we live. My studies in interior design, graphic design, and social sciences gave me not only the tools to enhance my techniques but to explore progressive design in ways I previously did not think was possible.”

Angela Doane
(2010)

Interior Designer

“While being a member of the art & design community at Sage, I had exposure to the many facets of the design industry beyond my major. The A&D community at Sage taught me how to approach design challenges differently and work collaboratively.  Sage gave me the tools to be a well-rounded design professional.”

Christine Crawford

“Sage did a lot for me: it brought me classmates who became close friends and then family, it gave me professors who cared about me each and every day of class (and still do years later), and most importantly it paved the path to where I am now.”

Sarah Bonhote
(2014)

Designer/CS
LLV Office Concepts, LLC.

“Sage was a great learning experience with great people. It has prepared me for what is to come in life, personally and professionally. I would not trade that experience or the people for anything. “

Tara Daigle
(2010)

Junior Designer
Regent Design Services
Saratoga Springs, NY

“Sage was much more than just a learning environment for me while I was there. It was a place where I could freely express my creative ideas and receive constructive criticism from peers and professionals. Not only did I strive to be and do my best on my own, my professors and fellow classmates always helped push the limits on the design process and how far I could really expand my thoughts and ideas. I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without many of them.”

Allison K. Parkes
(2012)

Designer/Architectural Intern
Dominick Ranieri Architect, P.C.
Schenectady, NY

“Sage was a great place to receive my education. The small class sizes and personalized attention allowed our professors to get to know who we are as people as well as who we are as designers. I don’t think this level of interaction is something you can find with a larger school.”

Kara Mathews

“At Sage, I was challenged to explore many exciting ideas and projects within the Interior Design program as well as the Department of Art & Design and the Sage community. That level of creativity gave me the confidence to jump into the design workforce!”
