Siena is leading the way in liberal arts higher education.

During your time as a Saint, you will not only see this first-hand, but you will live it every single day. From inside the classroom or lab, to our late-night events, life-changing service programs, transformative research opportunities, and so much more — your Siena experience is guaranteed to be something that impacts the rest of your life.

We often say, "Saints Don't Sit on the Sidelines."

That is something we take seriously! We are committed to continuously providing an experience for a lifetime to all of our students. Want to find out more? Check out a few ways we are setting our Saints up for success:

Transformative Journey

Our Saints experience a transformative journey featuring countless opportunities for faculty-student collaboration through independent research, our Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (CURCA), and so much more. 

New Programs

We are constantly listening to what programs and careers are in-demand for students, as well as in the professional world. It is our goal to continue expansion on our program offerings in majors, minors, certificates, and graduate programs.

Just this spring, we added our new Criminal Justice major featuring three tracks: Policy, Practice & Administration; Forensics; and Human Rights.

Reach for new Heights

We push our Saints to think outside the box. When our students and faculty are encouraged to experiment with new ideas, it only enriches the learning experience. You never know, asking 'Why?' might lead you to the next big discovery. 

Leading the Way

We are passionate about preparing our Saints to be leaders. Not only will our graduates be trained in leadership skills — but an emphasis on Franciscan-inspired leadership is what sets them apart.

Inclusive Community

We are committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive community where everyone is respected and included, experiences a genuine sense of belonging, and can reach their full potential.

Ask us anything!

It's important that we provide a support system for all of our students. No matter the question — big or small — we encourage Saints to ask us. Our new Siena Experience Team is here to help incoming students get all of their questions answered in one place. 

Not an incoming student? No problem. If you have something you need help with, email us at
