5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The MAC is really great for all students to go to in order to work out or participate in intramural sports. It certainly serves its purpose and provides a comfortable and accepting atmosphere.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: A rating is not applicable because I do not participate in the party scene enough to rate it.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you are looking to dine off-campus, there are plenty of options on Loudon Rd, Wolf Rd, and at the mall. You can get to all of them by bus or getting a ride from a friend.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration is extremely fair. The rules are set forth plainly and they fairly adhere to them without bringing down an iron fist for minor offenses.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office does what it can for you. Though times are tough and we all need some help, the scholarship distribution is pretty fair and they take personal circumstances into account.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Selection can be hit or miss but it generally it is good.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Super close to classes and great community!!

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Being a retuning student, and have gone to other college, Sierra was by

far the better college to get the fund to you the fastest I have seen in

my day. They help you get through the mass of paper work in the shortest

time and the friendly way as possible.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know. I don't live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't live around the college and don't have night class. I will not be able to answer this question.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't see any, so I quest it working great job Sierra

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't go into the food area that offend but went I do

If's ok and look very clean and smell nice, I eaten there

one end a while and the food was good.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Don't ever come her, ever, even if there's a fire.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school honestly just sucks eggs and the only reason I go here is because I have to

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You'll meet good people and bad people. I just think I've met more bad than good here so far.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Luckily, I have never had to go to Health Services since I'm from the area and my doctor is down the road. From what I heard the Health Services Department is a nightmare. I've heard from friends that the people that work there are very rude and that they will demand for you to make an appointment even in near emergency situations. One thing I find disturbing is the fact that they put the Health Services Office in the Townhouse area, which is very far away from where most of the students on campus live. For someone who is sick, that is a very far walk to make.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Siena has had a historically successful basketball program, but that's pretty much it.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: At Siena the weekends are the same. On Thursday nights, the upperclassmen and underclassmen with fake ID's venture out to Troy and go to Bootleggers. As a local, it makes no sense to me why the make the hike to Troy when great bars in Albany are literally right down the road. I've never been to a bar night at Siena, but from what I heard it is usually a packed s**t show, so if you're into that, Siena may be right for you. For Friday and Saturday's, most of the parties take place up at the townhouses (Upperclassmen Housing). The Townhouses are fit for honestly 10 people max, but somehow every weekend a hundred drunk sweaty kids will fill these godforsaken dorms. That's the other thing, the residents of the houses like to act like their house is exclusive when in reality, 65% of their class live in the townhouses. I've seen booze served at like two parties, so pretty much everyone, including girls, are completely on their own when it comes to alcohol, so don't expect to attend keggers or anything like that.

1 College Freshman

Administration: I don't even know where to begin in this department, public safety at this school is an absolute joke. All they are concerned about is sniffing out booze and weed and ruining a 19 year old's life. Siena is in the middle of Loudonville, New York. Which is the epitome of white suburbia, yet Siena finds it productive to gate their campus and set up "safety" checkpoints on the weekends, when in reality they are trying to find the kids sneaking booze on campus or the kids who god forbid went out and smoked weed. They baby kids here to the extreme and I am quite honestly amazed that graduates transition into adulthood, because you are treated like 16 year olds at boarding school. It's pathetic

College Freshman

Scholarships: I do not have financial aid or scholarships, I pay full freight

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: At Saga you can always find something to eat, but most of the time they just have pizza and burgers up. Breakfast is their best meal by far and you can almost always get in and out fast during that time. Casey's is a great late night option and they also serve healthier options. Most students say New Hall is the best, but I found that it's the same crap they serve at Saga, you just have to walk farther for it.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Housing process at Siena College is brutal, the lottery system is referred to as "The Hunger Games" and it is truly every man for themselves. There are limited housing options for every class, you are either living in a far superior dorm or the one badly in need of renovation. This is inherently unfair given the lottery system. I also find it ridiculous that when you move into a dorm at Siena that you agree to live there for the four years it takes to graduate. The one positive takeaway from Siena's Housing are the social programs put on by Res Life. They go out of their way to make sure there are events on the weekends for students who don't drink to attend.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some people like it, I just don't see the upside. It's a mediocre school for students who didn't have the money or grades to go to a better catholic school like Villanova or Boston College.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Apparently, the degree does have some weight but in comparison to a major school I don't feel like I could get a good job with this degree unless I go to graduate school.
