Sage Hall

Sage Hall was built as the first women's dormitory at Cornell University in 1875. One hundred and twenty years later, it became the new home of the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. Lauded for its Victorian Gothic architecture, Sage Hall features a soaring atrium that serves as a hub and event space for our dynamic, close-knit community.
