Whether you're a returning, first-year, or transfer student, you understand what we mean when we say every day is a great day to be Saint. We are excited to have you back on campus to continue all the amazing work you do — interning at top companies and volunteering on service trips, to solving problems using cutting-edge equipment and changing lives through innovative research. Nobody does it better than our Saints. We're ready to kick this semester off in style.
To our future Saints— we’re here to give you a glimpse of life at Siena through your new green and gold glasses.
New students joined us on Thursday, September 2 for a welcome like no other! From our community fair, family BBQ, and comedy magic show, to information sessions with current students, meetings with your advisors and much more, our new Saint Orientation pumped up and prepared all our students for success.
Weeks of Welcome
The first three weeks of the fall semester, our Weeks of Welcome, are filled with activities and events that will celebrate all of our Saints arriving back on campus. You’ll be encouraged to pursue your interests (and find new interests!) at our Club Fair sign-up. Plus, grab a bite and introduce yourself at Franks with Friars, try your luck at Siena’s famous Bingo night, and so much more.
Our athletes are already hard at work on the field as our seasons kick into gear. Grab some friends and head over to see our soccer teams in action.
Our inaugural Homecoming weekend will bring together alumni, students, parents, family and friends to celebrate what it means to be a Saint. Our current Saints will celebrate Homecoming with fun, games and food trucks on the Quad, a featured speaker event, an inaugural Homecoming Dance, and much more.
Family weekend is the perfect time to show your favorite people what life as a Saint looks like. Family Weekend 2021 will include both on and off-campus events on the weekend of October 1-3.
We plan to deliver The Education for a Lifetime with all classrooms, residence halls and dining areas at normal capacity, and will offer a full slate of in-person student clubs and athletics. A fully vaccinated community is the best way to ensure we all are able to enjoy the full Siena experience.
