To all who read this: You will get out of college what you put in. That goes for any school, any person. I went to Siena undecided and unfocused and really found the small classes, quality professors, and friendly peers a great combination to become a more focused and better student. If you go here, take the hard classes with the tough professors, don't go out to bars multiple times a week, and join clubs/sports/ whatever your interest is. You won't regret it!

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 is overall a wonderful school. The campus is beautiful and facilities are clean, modern, and well-maintained. Academics are challenging and most professors are personable and helpful. For the most part, students are friendly, down-to-earth, and want to have a good time. Almost all of my closest friends I have met at Siena.

Like every college, Siena isn't perfect. The main dining hall food isn't good at all and seems to be low quality, health services could be a lot better, and I agree what was said in a previous comment; administration doesn't seem to have the best interests for the students and makes unfair rules. Some people have said that Siena lacks diversity, but it definitely is more diverse than most other colleges in its class and seems to be improving. However, none of these negatives seem to ruin anyone's experience. I agree that Siena isn't for everybody. For example, if you prefer a big university with football, frats and sororities or a school offering more specialized majors Siena is not the right place. If you're looking for a smaller school with personal attention, Siena is a great choice.
