Siena College

School Description

Provided by Siena College

Siena College is a learning community advancing the ideals of a liberal arts education, rooted in its identity as a Franciscan and Catholic institution.

Siena, a Catholic and Franciscan college, founded in 1937 by seven Franciscan friars, is an independent undergraduate liberal arts college located in Loudonville, New York, a suburban community just outside the state's capital.

Siena students benefit from the College's proximity to Albany, a hub of political and cultural activity and the center of Tech Valley, by acquiring practical internships (and later, careers) in government, the arts, science and business.

Admission to the College is competitive. Of the 832 incoming members of the Class of 2012, 74 percent graduated in the top third of their high school class and their average SAT score was 1129. All showed strength of character and a commitment to education. Evaluating applicants as whole and unique individuals helps the College find students who are likely to succeed at Siena.

Siena's 3,000 undergraduates enroll in one of three schools - Liberal Arts, Science, and Business - and may choose from a total of 30 degree programs, 45 minors and certificate programs, and professional curricula in Secondary Education, Pre-Medical, Pre-Law, and Social Work. Over 150 students study abroad in a given year.

Siena's 29 majors and 43 minors (check them out here) equal 1,200 combinations of programs, and each path offers a blend of challenging academics and career preparation. Within six months after graduation, virtually all graduates have landed a job or are in graduate or professional school.

96 percent of Siena students enter graduate school or find employment immediately following graduation.

The beautiful 175-acre Siena College campus is known throughout the community for its gold-domed building, Siena Hall, which has become both symbol and signature. Completely renovated and updated with electronically enhanced classrooms and a state-of-the-art financial technology center, Siena Hall is a reminder of the College's rich history as well as a wellspring for innovative teaching and learning.
