Saint Anselm College Reviews
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.
Everyone gets along well, very much a hold-open-the-door-for-everyone kind of school. The only downsides are the academics: it's wicked difficult compared to other schools in the area. It's called saint Cs for a reason. To get into the Honors program you need a 3.0 GPA - which takes actual effort to get. Nursing and Politics are some of the best and more popular majors on campus.
