Saint Anselm College

About Saint Anselm College

Saint Anselm is recognized as one of the finest Catholic liberal arts colleges in the United States. The college is noted for its excellent undergraduate programs and professional preparation of students as leaders in a changing world. Students can choose from 42 majors and 20 minors (and this number is growing), several pre-professional programs, more than 80 clubs and organizations, and many fulfilling community service and study abroad opportunities that promote professional, social and civic engagement.

Saint Anselm College was founded in 1889, when the Order of Saint Benedict in New Hampshire was established. Our founding fathers, The Right Reverend Denis M. Bradley, (Bishop of Manchester), and Abbot Hilary Pfraengle, O.S.B. (Abbot of St. Mary's Abbey in Newark, N.J.) worked tirelessly together in pursuit of their common goal: To create a college in New Hampshire that would educate students in the Benedictine tradition.


Admission Ambassador

April 2019 Manchester, NH
“I enjoy the pace and the atmosphere of the admissions office and staff. Everyone in the office is eager to help and will encourage and support you. I enjoy showing family and prospective students what Saint Anselm has to offer. I do not believe my role is to sell the school. Instead, it is to present my experiences, likes, dislikes and the unique and special feature of a Saint Anselm College education. After meeting with prospective students, I hope they feel welcome and comfortable.”

Reunion Intern

May 2019 - June 2019 Manchester, NH
“I liked how involved I was in the multiple moving parts of planning the 2019 Reunion Weekend. I edited spreadsheets on Excel, tracked housing assignments and meal cards, helped to organize and set-up all materials needed for the weekend, answered Alumni phone calls to address questions, and ended my internship working Reunion Weekend meeting and networking with Alumni and President's Society members that all shared a common love for our hilltop.”
