As soon as I first set foot on the Saint Anselm College campus in late 2015, I knew it was the perfect school for me. During my four years there, I got to know so many fantastic people, both fellow students and faculty, that have shaped my life and led me down life and career paths I couldn't even have imagined. I had the absolute best time here, and I strongly encourage anyone looking for a close-knit college community with tons of opportunities to take on leadership roles and get to know everyone on campus to apply here!

When visiting Saint Anslem, I greatly enjoyed viewing the campus and the life of college students. I am looking forward to seeing what steps come next in my application process! I hope to be accepted into this school to begin my future degree. The campus is clean, organzied, and values the students present. I hope to discuss my potential presence at Saint Anselm College and potentially be accepted into the school next fall!
It is a great school! Close community, pretty well oriented within the community via businesses, families, individuals, etc. The curriculum is academically challenging, but there various resources to help with that. The professors are pretty understanding as well as all of the staff.
