We are pleased to have our Saints safely back on campus for the new academic year that began August 24.

The safety of our students has been and always will be our #1 priority. Things are different this semester, there is no doubt about that. Nevertheless, the entire community is making every accommodation to ensure Siena continues to provide the Education for a Lifetime.

Our Marching Forward website outlines many of the changes that are now part of campus life. Information will be added and updated as the pandemic evolves and new guidance is received. Click here to view the College's complete Reopening Plan.
