What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
Siena is a decent size college with a beautiful campus. The students are very nice,except if your a commuter then you will have to try to make alot of friends. Teachers are nice for the most part and care for the students.
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.
Nick from Delmar, NY
Very clean campus. Students are very safe in this school. Don't come here if you want a party life.
Firmin from Brooklyn, NY
Siena is a liberal arts college with a very strong reputation for its accounting program. The campus is located in a suburban area and is beautiful. The students are predominantly locals and people from Long Island.
