I hated every minute I spent at Siena -- I knew I could have bene happier and done better at another school, but my sad parents were Catholic fanatics, and I paid the price for their belief.

Great small school, perfect if you want a close-knit campus. Everyone knows everyone, which can be good and bad. Classes vary on difficulty based on teachers, as do all schools. Parties are usually smaller affairs, but good times can be had with the right people. Expect public safety to be on your business as a freshman, but not so much as you get older. I recommend this college

Siena does a good job roping in students without giving a true picture.. Choice of classes is poor compared to other schools, faculty doesn't care about the needs of individual students and many students act like high schoolers, find a clique and reject anyone different than they are. Compared to Suny Albany and St. Rose, the grounds are nice looking and safe. But once behind the gates you see how unsafe the place can be, how poorly trained the public safety staff is, wanna-be cops who pick on random students for invisible reasons. Sad to say, the landscaping is the best thing about the school. My gpa is good so my attitude isn't about bad grades. I have friends but it's mostly a cliquish place and if they give the impression of being a conservative school to parents -- its a joke. The administration acts holier than thou in terms of monitoring but I've never seen so many kids puke their guts out on a Saturday night (and my parents happen to be liberal/didn't shelter me in high school). Administration should stop acting militant about drinking. For some reason they give the (mentally limited) public safety allowance to order kids transported to hospitals if they smell like alcohol. Then they charge parents over $1,000 so the upshot is it pushes kids to drink stuff like straight vodka because its harder to detect on breath and easier to hide. . Im seriously thinking of transfer next year, lots of choices in business at a much lower cost. Final words, don't give it a second look. Siena is all show, no substance.
