Currently a Juinor at Siena and I would say going to Siena was one of the best and most life changing decisions I have made. I love the small campus, the tight knit community and the academics. From my experience it is more community oriented than other "comparable" small liberal arts schools. My friends/peers from home all know how much I love my school and being on campus it's fairly common to hear a similar sentiment of love for our school.

Professors at Siena truly get to know you. They push you to be better not just for a grade. I've been told more often than not that in addition to their office hours they would be happy to help additional hours. I've been challenged and I've grown immensely as a result. I've been involved in admissions, student activities and I am currently studying abroad. I can attribute my internships to my experience at Siena and I feel confidently that my education will help prepare me for the working world!

I personally feel that Siena is the best of the best. I went there with my mother and was greeted instantly by friendly faces. I automatically knew that this college was right for me. When the director came to greet us personally, he offered water or tea which was really nice. Also, the meeting we had with the college director was great! This college has everything you could possibly ask for.!
All of the freshman and sophomore residence halls are incredibly old and run down. Public Universities that cost half as much as Siena have nicer residence halls. The academic buildings are not great either. Siena Hall is not terrible but it is no different then my public high school, Kiernan Hall is old, run-down, and does not have air-conditioning, Roger Bacon is a total dump, Rossetti is the only nice building but it hosts all the social work classes. Siena being such a small and quite frankly "no-name" college they struggle to find good professors. My first semester of sophomore year every single one of my professors was a part time adjunct, and only one had a Doctorate, keep in mind I am a double major with marketing and finance. That is simply unheard of at any other school.Overall I would not recommend Siena. The campus is not nice, the buildings are old, the food sucks, academics have nothing to show for. Save your money and go somewhere else.
