ourtradition

Founded in the Franciscan Catholic tradition, Siena College is a place of engagement and education. Ours is a welcoming community, where students are encouraged to draw knowledge and insight from the classroom, as well as the world around them.

By integrating the Franciscan values of Diversity, Optimism, Respect and Service (DORS) into all aspects of the student experience, Siena offers a rich, vibrant learning environment that promotes positive, interpersonal relationships. We believe that it is through our interaction with others that our potential is realized.

Our education is rooted in service; the capacity to help others is the foundation of our legacy. And we believe a commitment to learning and service is a gift that lasts a lifetime.
