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.
Review Saint Anselm College
I absolutely love Saint Anselm! I've had great professors in classes I've enjoyed. My favorite thing about the school is that everyone is knows each other and it is a tight knit community, because it is a small school. However, that being said, we still have opportunities that allow each of us to be a part of something bigger than ourselves; whether it's on a city level through volunteering in the Manchester community or on a national level through working for the presidential debates!
Sports at Saint Anselm are a great way for students to get involved. The teams are generally pretty good and a lot of people attend the games, especially the football, hockey, basketball, and baseball games. So many students are also a part of club sports for fun, which makes sports even more important to student life!
