If there's one thing we love about life in the Northeast, it’s the four seasons. Which means after an oftentime long winter — summer is a highly cherished time of the year for our Saints.
Check out these six reasons why we love this time of year in Upstate New York:
From Alive at Five, Jazz on Jay and Rockin' on the River to Saratoga Performing Arts Center — spending a summer in the Capital Region is bound to include a stop at one of our many outdoor concerts.
Summer @ Siena
Just because it's summer doesn't mean our Saints stop working. Through Siena's Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (CURCA), each summer dozens of our Summer Scholars design, explore, analyze, and evaluate their own original research. Students also get ahead or get caught up, and save money at the same time with our reduced summer course tuition rates.
Pack your bag and gear up for an outdoor summer adventure! Saints looking for a challenging bike trail, a day-long hike, or even a test of wits on a ropes course can find it all within an hour drive of Siena's campus.
Enjoying Sweet Treats
Nothing quite screams 'SUMMER' like a soft serve ice cream cone at a local shop. Lucky for our Saints, there is no shortage of local delicious spots. Maybe donuts are your favorite sweet treat — we've got you covered!
Diving into a Good Read
Because moisture and warmth are crucial to thunderstorms, it makes sense that they would occur more often in the summer. When outdoor activities are cancelled it's the perfect time to dive into a good book. Check out some of our recent FYS Summer Reading books below.
Saints on Tour
Summer isn't complete without hosting future Saints on tour. Whether they are prospective students looking to apply, or incoming freshman and transfer students, our visitors love seeing campus in the sunshine. Sign up today for our one of our Summer Tours!
