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.

Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Brandon from Cohoes, NY
Great campus and friendly students and faculty. Faculty will chat with you about their programs at length and even suggest way to improve your acceptance and offer alternative course selections and majors. Students are able to do research with faculty as undergrads and to develop and promot their own projects.
