Homesickness

What can I do if my son/daughter is feeling homesick or is not adjusting?

Encourage your son/daughter to get involved. There are a lot of great opportunities for activities and organizations at Siena that will keep him/her engaged and help build relationships with students, faculty, and staff across campus. Many studies show that students who are involved with clubs, intramurals, and other campus activities are more successful academically and socially at college. We also have a great resource in the Center for Counseling and Student Development. In that office are licensed counselors who meet with our students if they are struggling with a wide range of concerns. Stand-alone and recurring appointments are available at no charge.
