No Instagram post, no iPhone shot, no professionally taken photo can fully do our beautiful, suburban campus justice—they suffice, but really, you just have to visit. 

You have to smell the fresh cut grass and try the smoothies from Casey’s. You have to walk around the perimeter where Siena’s campus safely meets the peaceful streets of Loudonville (one of the safest towns in New York), and kick back by the fire pits. 

And when you do, be sure to scope out these specific spots below: a few of our students’ favorite places to study or unwind.

“You can always find me in the Stack Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Siena Hall. It is one of Siena’s hidden gemswhere students of all majors can come together to collaborate on a project, study or spend time together in between classes.” - Emily Jansz ‘21,  Business: Corporate Finance and Entrepreneurship 


“My favorite place is Casey’s! It's a great place for having breakfast and coffee with friends in the morning, studying in the afternoon and watching karaoke and trivia at night! A central hub for Saint life.”  - Meredith McElroy ‘22, Psychology 

“My favorite spot on campus is Casey's. Whether I’m doing homework, studying for an exam or grabbing a meal, the atmosphere in Casey’s is unbeatable. You are always guaranteed to see someone you know or a friendly face.” - Kenneth Indovino ‘22, Marketing


“My favorite campus spot is the Grotto! The Grotto is a beautiful place to take time to step back from our busy lives and just breathe! It’s always been a place I can find serenity and a sense of peace.” - Megan O’Neill ‘21, Mathematics 

“My favorite spot on campus is the Grotto. It's away from the hustle and bustle of things so I love to call my family and friends there, light a candle and say a prayer from this special place. To me, the Grotto is a place of reflection, solitude,and hope.” - Stephanie Fortune ‘22, Economics 

dining hall


“My favorite spot on campus is in Lonnstrom Dining Hall (often referred to as Saga, its previous name) in the booths near the Norm. Every morning this is where I meet my sister, some of our best friends and Fr. Larry to have breakfast before starting our day.” - Zach Brimmer ‘20, Management
