Edge and other modern browsers better protect you in the ever-evolving online world and offer many other benefits.
Internet Explorer will be completely discontinued starting June 15, 2022 and Siena Heights University will stop supporting the web browser at this time. Siena Heights officially recommends the use of Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome to browse the internet securely and efficiently.
