What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
Visit the campus - it's the ideal small college campus, trees and lawns, close walking to dorms and classes, friendly students. Pick a day when you can chat with faculty. Our visit included lunch with a faculty member in my proposed major and I had a one-on-one conversation about me and my ideas for college and a major. Received advice on choice of major and misconceptions about certain majors and real world applications. College very open to individual needs and abilities - will consider your social involvement, as well as grades and test scores.

Coursework is challenging. You will feel safe and you will make good friends. The staff are all here to help so ask questions
Firmin from Brooklyn, NY
The accounting program is good for more than just accounting. Many of the positions I've been interested in were posted seeking an accounting major. If you're introverted and more interested in business operations, accounting may be the better way to go.

If accounting seems boring finance is a good alternative. Siena has the Hickey Financial Center, which contains Bloomburg terminals and a stock ticker.

The computer science program also seems like a hidden gem. A lot of bright people were in the programming class I took. A team from Siena participated in some programming contest recently and placed well against some more technically oriented schools.

I've found the management majors tend to be offered jobs in sales, human resources, and customer service. Life insurance companies hire many Siena graduates as agents(some are now millionaires). Target hires some operations management trainees from Siena and there are alumni in all sorts of positions, but I'd say look to a different major if none of the previously mentioned positions appeal to you.

This school is worth going to because you learn alot of what your major is intended for. Only in the first 2 years do you take a decent amount of electives. They work on your highs and lows within the degree to help better you for when you leave.
Brandon from Cohoes, NY
Definitely plan a trip to visit before attending and the winters do get very cold, so a very warm coat and boats will be necessary!
Janet from Port Jefferson station, NY
Incoming freshmen should attend the club fairs at the beginning of the year and get involved. There are many opportunities to get involved on campus and it is important to take advantage of them.
Ann from WI
If you can apply early, don't hesitate. I did the early action application and was the accepted in November of my senior year.
Melanie from Sparta, NJ
For prospective students, visit the college, talk to people that go there, meet with the admissions office, get yourself known on the campus. You want to make sure you like the campus, and the environment. If you can, do an over night/ shadow someone, so you get the college feel.
Theresa from Albany, NY
You may think college is like high school all over again, but that is not true. Be prepared to work hard to get good grades and be ready to do homework that may take hours.
Kaitlyn from Schenectady, NY
Professors here are helpful, but not intrusive. If you need help ask. It's really worth it. You'll find, if you talk to them outside of class, a lot of the professors are very funny, friendly, and will continue to be a network for you after you finish their class.
