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

I am majoring in Mathematics here at ARC and I am transferring to pursue a degree in Environmental Engineering.
My definition of student success is in whether a student was able to achieve their goals in the way they wanted, and, in the time, they planned. We want to make sure that a student has all the resources and support they need to leave ARC feeling accomplished and inspired.
Being a SAGE above anything means being a leader. We are here to guide others like our mentees as well as the many students we interact with. We are here to learn about resources and share that knowledge with students to help them be successful. We are a both resource for both knowledge and assistance on campus and it is really fulfilling to be influencing so many people as we work. I don't think I would have learned so much about the resources on campus if wasn't for being a SAGE. Because I have familiarized myself with the campus, I know where all the offices are if I need assistance.
I used to be a student that would go straight to class and then beck home, but I now try to be involved with the campus, go to events, utilize the library for books and studying, etc. Being a SAGE not only is good for my education because I work, and it helps fund my education, but I also feel more motivated about helping myself as I help others. I want to leave ARC knowing that I have helped students get a good head start on their education and to know that they can always come to the CLD for help.
I would tell new students to just go for it; take the initiative. Being a student leader is not only fun, but it is a great learning experience. You will learn to work with a great team, learn about many resources, help students succeed, and learn how to improve yourself by reaching your goals. I love being a SAGE because I have learned so much about working, helping others, improving myself, and feeling like I could do things that impacted the campus and students. I really like that I can work and be a student especially since the hours fit perfectly into my class schedule. This position also helps build up my resume and offer opportunities to support events. The staff also try their best to encourage our success and help us be successful in the future.
