          • Testimony
            1984-1988, B.A.

            Having graduated from St Anselm back in the 80's with my wife Linda I was pleasantly surprised recently when upon returning for our daughters freshman year we were welcomed back as if we had graduated last year. Whether it was Abbot Mark, Dean Horton, Fr. Bennett or any other number of Staff we ran into that day, they all welcomed us back with open arms. Our daughter had a great year and now is starting to understand what it is to be Anselmian!

          • Testimony
            1983-1987, B.S.

            We are a St. Anselm family; I graduated in '87, my husband Peter graduated in '88 and my daughter Olivia completed her freshman year. The college campus has evolved in the 25+ years since we were at the hilltop, but the fundamental values of the college remain. What stands out is the remarkable sense of community at St. Anselm, it is the extended family for our children to help them nurture, grow and reinforce our family values. Put simply, the St. Anselm community is comprised of great kids, with the right values, who have a nurturing support system to continue their develpment.

          • Testimony
            1992-1996, B.A.

            Instrumental in developing a strong work ethic. I thoroughly enjoyed the Criminal Justice program and my wife loved the Nursing program. Smaller college with a solid family atmosphere; where the professors are very helpful and attentive. To this day some of my closest friends have come from attending St. Anselm College.
