Interviews and Campus Visits

Scheduling an interview or a campus visit are two of the best ways to experience Siena.

Special Day Tour Only, Monday, October 12

Are you off from school today? Come visit Siena! We love showing off our campus, and we strongly encourage you to take a tour with a student Ambassador.

Not only will you see our state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, residence halls, dining hall, athletic facilities and library, you'll also get a chance to talk to a student who knows what Siena is all about. Tours typically last just under an hour, but don't be surprised if you want to spend a lot more time on campus.


Nothing can replace a good conversation - it's the best way for us to really get to know you. We understand that you are much more than test scores and grades. A personal interview is your opportunity to show us what you're made of and to ask us the questions that matter to you. It's a dialogue that can make a difference.

Want to take a tour, too? Perfect. We'll keep your interview at an hour or less so that you can schedule a tour for either the hour immediately before or immediately after your interview. Interviews are available Monday through Friday.

Campus Visit

First visit to Siena? Have a few questions? This is the perfect visit option! A brief, yet incredibly informative introduction to Siena, the 90-minute Admissions Visit includes: • A campus tour led by a student ambassador, AND a casual conversation with an admissions counselor.

See the campus through a student’s perspective, ask about campus life and get answers to all your college-search questions! Tours are available Monday – Friday. Admission conversations are scheduled for after the tour.

Group Information Sessions

Join us for an information session with an admissions counselor followed by a tour of campus.
