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

I'm currently attending Siena College as a freshman student- going to be a sophomore next year. There's a lot of good at Siena as well as a lot of bad. For starters public safety does a fantastic job at keeping the campus safe during the day as well as at night, and will do basically anything to make sure Siena students are safe. However, this can sometimes get annoying when kids on the weekend want to go out and have a good time, although they're just doing their job (and ultimately following the law). Faculty and staff are very friendly and approachable, and they will do whatever they can to assist you in anyway. Students are also very nice, however, they can be extremely cliquey which is really annoying. On the negative side of things, the food sucks. While most people in college gain the freshman 15, I think I've lost it. So if you're looking for a school with good food, you may want to reconsider. They do have the wrap shop here which is good, but they're expensive and its not apart of your meal plan, you use your "dining dollars" to buy food there. The bathrooms, at least in my hallway, are absolutely disgusting. I can't even say how many times I've gone into the bathroom and there were hairballs all over the shower stalls and the toilets are clogged and you know what is all over the toilet seats. But then again it depends on who is in your hallway and how clean they are. If you're planning on coming here to party, it's not your scene. It's a decent school nonetheless but as for fun wise- there's not a lot of it unless you're an upper-classman living in a town house. But there is a town down the road and a shuttle you can catch to go to the mall and walmart. I must say this is my experience- my roommate loves it here.

Siena is a great school if you don't take business!
marketing and management is a mickey mouse degree only good for getting crappy sales jobs, it's not worth the $30,000!


The business school, specifically the management is a total joke. It consists of a few academics who are close friends not deserving intellectuals who earned that title! Also what they teach is exactly what is wrong in the business world today!

It's not just them it's most business schools.
Until these business schools start teaching the youth the real way to do business and not he passive aggressive management style that has failed the last 30 years the US will always be in economic strife! These national accreditations they get should not be respected if the whole country is suffering from these terrible ideals. The status quo in teaching business must change before the nation can prosper.

Siena is not the route of this problem in business but it contributes to teaching our youth a curriculum that has been proven to fail.

Just because everyone is in denial and doesn't want to admit everything they have learned and have taught the last 30 years in the business world has been from the wrong paradigm does not mean that our youth should be blindly taught and pay top dollar for this garbage anymore!

Dr. Rosetti is great, probably one of the very few very great prof. who really wants to help educate!

Dr. Seifert is a joke and is usually too busy working on furthering his career and collecting stipens than advising or teaching. He may act like a very nice guy but just another passive aggressive fool teaching management! Him and his friends should not be teaching nursery school!

At last the administration is the biggest joke and will be Siena's downfall.
Peter Ellard will give you nausea with his self righteous, holier than thou attitude. Seriously you might get sick!

This man started as a somewhat good teacher but then decided to become a head administrator and turned into total tool for the school to take as much money from the students. While he probably believes he is helping them in his self righteous diluted mind while he pontificates life and responsibility to you. A pompous fool, don't listen to his advice makeup your own mind!

Siena College should have let the franciscan brothers run the administration and not a bunch of money hungry academics more worried on furthering their own careers than educating and guiding our youth !

English department is great!!!!
Philosophy department is great!!!
Comp. Science classes are well done!
