Julia - Class of 2015

Associate Director of Communications & Public Affairs

"From professors, to staff and administrators, Resident Directors, and everyone in between — I always felt like I had a second family in my corner when I was a Saint. I formed connections that I will carry with me for the rest of time. You really are a Saint for life. I've been a Saint since I was born — my aunt and uncle were both professors at Siena so I always tell people I have been eating in the dining hall since I was a kid. I didn't always know I wanted to go to college close to home, but once I did I knew I was meant to be a Saint." — Julia

ZACH - CLASS of 2020

Associate Director for Strategy, Communication, & Experience 

"My Siena Experience started off a little rocky. I went to class and went right back home. As soon as I started getting involved my whole experience changed. The first thing I got involved with was the Commuter Student Association. I was able to form a bond with fellow commuters and start to form friendships of whom I still keep in touch with. Once I became an orientation leader, I knew my calling in life was to work at a college and make sure every student that step foot on Siena's campus had the same awesome experience as I did. My advice to all students would be to get involved in something right away!" — Zach

Assistant Director for Experience & Executive Assistant to the President

"I had an amazing Siena experience! I really went outside of my comfort zone and challenged myself as a student. Siena really shaped me into the person that I am meant to be, I am forever grateful for that. My time as a student was everything I could have imagined college would be and more. Siena is the best decision I ever made. I want to ensure that all students are having the best experience possible, I want to help however I can! That is what this team is designed to do." — Kiley
