Siena Heights University

Siena Heights University, founded in 1919, is a Catholic university in the Dominican Tradition.

With the main campus located in Adrian, MI, there are six additional degree-completion centers throughout the state and online.

The small class size, close-knit community atmosphere, extensive campus resources, committed faculty, and diverse student population foster opportunities for high quality learning and relationship growth and development. Recently named one of the top 25 “Most Affordable Catholic Colleges” in the U.S., Siena Heights is a phenomenal value for what it offers.

Whatever you want to do in the world, Siena Heights University will help you to develop the competence, confidence, purpose, and ethics to make it happen. We call that “The Siena Effect”.
