Over 150 students study abroad in a given year.
- The College’s reputation as a student-centered community of scholars is primarily due to its accomplished and attentive faculty, who balance the demands of academic leadership, publishing, and research with the responsibility of providing undergraduates with a challenging, engaging, and inspiring education of the highest quality.
- Seventy-six percent of Siena students live on campus in one of seven residential living areas. Distinguished by its DORS (Diversity, Optimism, Respect, Service) philosophy, Siena’s residential life program is committed to fostering a safe, respectful and meaningful learning environment for students.
- Siena sponsors 18 Division I athletic programs. Student-athletes at Siena regularly graduate at a rate that beats the national average for both athletes and non-athletes. The College’s athletic department has ranked in the top 15 nationally in two of the last three Division I National Graduation Rate Reports.
- Values play an integral role in college life at Siena, where education is not simply a means by which to acquire goods and services, but a privilege that should be used as a way to do good and to serve others. The Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy is the vehicle for volunteerism at Siena, providing students with the opportunity to serve with and among the poor, marginalized, and disenfranchised.
- The beautiful 164-acre Siena College campus is known throughout the community for its gold-domed building, Siena Hall, which has become both symbol and signature. Completely renovated and updated with electronically enhanced classrooms and a state-of-the-art financial technology center in 2004, Siena Hall is now a reminder of the College’s rich history as well as a wellspring for innovative teaching and learning.
