ICYMI: Our previous blog post was an interview with Siena’s Director of Health Promotion Katie Kaufman Burns, all about our Office of Health Promotion and the efforts they’re putting forth to increase and evolve our resources for Gen Z. You’ve heard from Kate. Now hear from Dr. Nate.

Nate T. Pruitt, Ph.D., is the director of the Counseling Center here and a licensed psychologist. He’s taught several undergrad and graduate courses and has done extensive research on topics like building emotional resilience in college students and the opportunities and challenges of working at a faith-based school.

Mental Health & Wellness at Siena College: Q&A 1 of 2

It’s nearly impossible to log onto Twitter or scan the news without seeing the words mental health, anxiety, wellness, meditation or depression—and it’s often coming from the mouths (or fingertips) of smart, curious and concerned Gen Zers.

More than ever, you want college to be about personal growth as much as it is academic growth. We hear you loud and clear, and that’s why Siena has added new programs and resources to address these issues—and will continue to innovate ways we can help our students.

In fact, at Siena College, entrepreneurship is one of our most popular programs, and for good reason.

Take it from Nick Earl, who graduated from Siena in May 2018 with a major in marketing and a minor in innovation and entrepreneurship. Here’s what he said about his experience in Siena’s entrepreneurship program and more.

THE BLESSING OF THE BRAINS: A BELOVED SIENA TRADITION

Among the many reasons why I feel honored to be a part of the Siena College community is the opportunity to participate in time-honored campus traditions with our incredible students.
