Siena vs Saint Lawrence

Hello I am currently deciding between Saint Lawrence University and Siena College. I love both colleges and everyone that I know from SLU loves it, but Siena right now is a little cheaper and closer to home. I would major in business and Econ at SLU and would major in Finance and Economics at Siena in the 3+1 MBA program. I know that SLU is considered better academically but my main question is the academic Rigor of SLU worth the extra cost or is doing the 3+1 program at Siena the better option? Any additional information would be helpful.
