The truly friendly community aspect that Siena has instilled on each one of its students as they first step onto campus can definitely not be comparable and is what makes Siena a must visit school. There is never a moment were you don't feel welcome and encouraged to try new things that Siena has to offer. The courses taken at Siena have challenged me to succeed and expanded my knowledge in all aspects of being a good student not only including the basic information but how to study, public speaking, and how to communicate among my fellow peers and teachers. The class sizes are small and professors hold extensive office hours giving you the appropriate attention needed to succeed in this sort of environment. This and the professors willingness to help when a student asks for it makes goals a lot easier to achieve. Having this close teacher student relationship is definitely a necessity for me and is something that not a lot of schools can offer which made Siena a top choice school for me. Siena has an outstanding study abroad program that will work with you and your major to send you wherever you want to go. On the other hand Siena's dinning system is still in the process of being established with a new supplier and the hours of dinning and food options are subpar which is why I would say my overall experience at Siena so far was great but not quite excellent.
Siena is a D1 school and although Siena is a small campus the school spirit is still strong. However it may not be as big as other schools with a larger student population and a football team but all the students come out to support Siena at there mens basketball games as that is our biggest sport on campus. Club sports are noticed too we even have an equestrian club! Also its really easy to start a new one if theres a sport we don't have!
Siena is the best because everyone is respectful. Our community is warm and kind to everyone. It's a completely different atmosphere than any other school I've visited (friend's schools or tours). We all have a general sense of caring for each other and supporting one another. To be a Siena Saint, one must always hold the door open. We all deeply respect one another, so we always feel obliged to be courteous. We are even known for our door holding and polite attitude.

The professors are pretty much great and want everyone to succeed. Many are willing to stay late and set up appointments outside of their office hours if they don't work with your schedule.

Siena is located in Loudonville, NY, and it's not only safe, but lovely. You can go for a run alone, off campus, without a phone and not fear anything. The homes and people are just lovely. I knew this was a great area when I was about .5 miles always and it was only my first time visiting because I saw the cutest old couple decorating their beautiful stone home with Christmas decorations. We're still so close to big cities, like Albany and Saratoga, so we get to enjoy all of their events, including Larkfest and Chowderfest, just to name some of my favorites.

This is such a great environment to create an amazing college experience. Siena truly provides "The education of a lifetime."
