Literally the worst college ever

Jul 11 2014Biology
Literally the worst college ever. The teachers are dumb, my high school teachers were smarter. The administration doesnt care about anyone or anything but their statues quotes. The school hides things from the public and gets away with violent crimes committed on the campus. The teachers are arrogant, not understanding and awful.

Siena is a decent school

Oct 20 2014Accounting
Siena is a decent school. Some teachers care about their students while a few are on a power trip. The problem with the college is that one its a party school. You go to Siena to party not to learn. If you want to learn go somewhere else. The second problem is their focus on group projects. They want everything to be a group project to the point where all you do is meet with groups to do work. This ends up taking up all your time and you can't enjoy life. Also when interviewing after leaving school both employers I interviewed with looked down on Siena and their business program because of their group mentality. They question whether or not you did your work or if the group carried you. I got both jobs but was based off of past experience. I would say Siena more or less hurt my chances

Siena has a relatively small campus

Apr 09 2014Biology
Siena has a relatively small campus. There are under 4,000 undergrads here. But there is never a dull moment. The faculty here, especially in the school of science, are fantastic. They all do research outside of teaching, so they put a spin on their classes which is geared toward their area of expertise. Every teacher I have had here has been extremely flexible with their office hours, and provides materials and or review sessions to ensure you do the best you possibly can on their exams. That being said, they expect a lot out of you. The science classes tend to have strenuous exams and extensive lab work. There are always research opportunities for students in various areas. As far as social life, there is a whole section of campus, separated from the academic buildings and dorms, where all the upper classmen townhouses are. That is where all the partying happens. There are events that go on every Thursday by the student event board, dances, and movies playing in the lecture halls every weekend. There is virtually nothing to do off of campus without going 20 minutes south into Albany, unless you want to go shopping.
