From Siena College

Ask any Saint: there is a lot to love about Siena. Our idyllic campus in New York’s Capital Region; our strong Franciscan values; faculty who draw out the best in their students; the connected alumni network, our robust program offerings; and the fact that Saints live their best life together. Attending on-campus events and being a part of Siena traditions. Building houses in Habitat for Humanity, skiing in the Outing Club or just relaxing by the fire pits on the Paddock.

But to really know Siena is to know that we want you to lead a life of meaning and success. That’s why we have a dedicated Office of Internships that helps our students work at sites like NASA and Google. It’s why we provide them with equipment and research opportunities no other college has and send them around the world on study or service trips. We believe an education should be something you get to do, not just something you get. Ranked the #1 College in NY for Getting a Job, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Siena College has a very welcoming community where everyone feels at home, their extensive diversity and student activities make the college experience unforgettable. Being an international students, I had not visited the campus before I joined Siena and was planning to transfer for the second year. However, from the second I got picked up at the airport and reached campus, I fell in love with the community, infrastructure and how safe and comfortable everyone made me feel. I am so glad I came to Siena college and I wouldn't choose to change my experience so far for anything in the world!

    The overall process of applying, visiting and moving into the dorms at Siena was seamless. Siena was the first college to reply and sent an acceptance within days of submitting my application. When My parents and I visited we were treated like we mattered and it felt like home. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. We even had a one on one meeting with my potential advisor. On Move in day Siena Saints were waiting for freshman arrival to help unload and bring items to each individual dorm. In Covid conscious times, I very confident in Siena’s handling of procedures and guidelines. I love Siena and made the right choice!
    Siena College has been the ideal home away from home for me! I have met incredible professors, friars, and lifelong friends who support my professional, personal, and academic goals as I grow into the person I aspire to be. Due to the liberal arts education here at Siena in tandem with my involvement on campus, I have learned about my passions and have felt prepared to explore various career options and hobbies.
