Siena College was the biggest waste of money!AverageEducation
Siena College was the biggest waste of money! In the words of one of my professor's from there "you have to walk on water to get an -A or have connections". The students were snotty and the girls were mostly half wits. I wouldn't recommend this school to ANYONE!!! The school is full of bs! For instance, I had to move out of my room because my roomate was a year ahead of me! Not because she was a nutcase and wanted to room to herself!

My biggest complaint about Siena is that it'sBrightComputer Science
My biggest complaint about Siena is that it's growing beyond it's capacity. Parking is terrible and the housing office fights to keep up with new students.

To critique myself as a student and to give Siena a fair shake, I did not fit the Siena College mold.

What others have said about demographics is true and that is the Siena College mold. Being introduced to these type of people did help me to grow personally though.

The school is so small though that often times frends and I would have conversations about how Siena felt like less of a college and more of a high school. This was because there were tightly woven cliques.

The professors in computer science were truly great with only one outlier that comes to mind. They generally cared about your success even if you didnt.

Alcohol is King at Siena. Just drink off campus so as not to get in trouble by the alcohol policy. There are tons of bars in Albany but not enough clubs.

I was dating a RA while I was there. The disrespect that is shown on a weekly basis to anyone remotely related to an authority figure on the weekends is disgusting. Not a bad school. Just not for me.
