“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.”
