WE <3 our saints

Dear Saints,

Our hearts go out to each and every one of you. We know that right now, you’re dealing with a whole host of emotions. While nothing we say can change the current course of events, we do want to try to give you some peace, some hope, and some assurance.

What’s the one word that all Saints use to describe Siena? Community. And now more than ever, community is what we need. Take comfort knowing that no matter what—despite our distance—the bonds between Saints cannot be broken. Siena is far more than the collection of buildings that make up this beautiful campus.

While we didn’t expect the semester to take this kind of turn, we’re already working hard to make sure your virtual experience is smooth and enjoyable. In the meantime know that we miss you all. We care about you. And we’re thinking of you. 

In these unsettling times, one thing is for sure: Our community is no less strong because it’s temporarily virtual. We’re in this together, we’ll get through this together, and we’ll find a way to celebrate at the end of this unfortunate disruption, together.
