Saint Anselm College is my home away from home. There is a huge sense of community there - with peers, faculty, and staff. The teachers there never want to see you fail; and the classes are small enough that you can easily get one-on-one time with a professor if you are struggling in that class. Everyone on campus is very friendly and easy to talk to; you can easily make friends on a daily basis. Getting involved on campus is also very easy, as there is always something to do. I strongly recommend checking out Saint A's; it's an amazing school that gives you so many possibilities.

Saint Anselm College is an amazing institution. It has a rigorous academic curriculum that challenges students. The on campus monks provide a sense of respect and community, whether its in the classroom or in the pub. The campus is constantly trying to be better and is always moving forward. Not to be undersold, the food on campus is amazing! Although the general student body is fairy homogeneous and middle class, there is an ongoing push for diversity.
My decision to enter Saint A's is probably the best I've ever made so far in my life. I love my classes and my professors and I've made some of my greatest friends here. Even as a commuter, I have not felt disadvantaged or left out when participating in school functions. Saint A's has a very challenging curriculum with professors who want to get to know you and help you succeed. Everyone is so welcoming and accommodating that it is hard to feel left out in the wind. My only wish is that they would expand their dormitory and dining facilities to help better serve the rapidly growing student body.
