LOUDONVILLE, NY (NEWS10) – It’s now official.
The more than three-thousand undergraduate students at Siena College now have the school’s eleventh president firmly in place Friday night.
Brother Edward Coughlin was inaugurated Friday after being appointed president eleven months ago.
“I think there are a lot of disruptions in higher education. You read in the newspaper almost every day about the decreasing number of students of college age and the costs, tuition discounting, all those things”, said Brother Coughlin.
Brother Coughlin says one of Siena’s main missions will be to continue to prepare their graduates not only academically, but also as good people who can make a difference in the world.
