Company Description

Located in Loudonville, New York – just 10 minutes from the state capital of Albany – Siena empowers more than 3,400 students each year through a transformative journey we call the Education for a Lifetime. All members of the Siena College community work together to advance the College's mission to graduate Saints intent on making the world more just, peaceful, and humane. The Franciscan tradition, upon which Siena was founded, permeates throughout campus life. All community members are valued for their unique worth and recognized for their specific contributions toward the greater good. That spirit of belonging and respect reverberates across our 174-acre campus, which is ranked among the 50 most beautiful college campuses in the country by Condé Nast.

 Siena is leading the way in Catholic, liberal arts education, and the national rankings help tell our story. Siena ranks number one in New York for job placement; top 10 among all Catholic colleges in the country; and among the top three percent of all institutions in the U.S according to the Wall Street Journal. It has always been our community of dedicated and passionate Saints who make this campus a coveted destination to work, live, and learn. We hope you’ll consider joining us.
