Academics A comprehensive liberal arts education gives you insight into how the world works—and how it could work better. If you have a career in mind, you may already know what major to choose. But if you don’t, don’t worry—even if you don’t know where you’re going yet, at Saint Anselm, you’ll find out how to get there. No matter what you study, you’ll be ready to handle anything life has in store, because you’ll learn to analyze a situation from every angle, get your point across, and solve unexpected challenges. They’re essential skills that lead to success in any career.


It’s all about connections: between the scientific and the philosophical; the practical and the purely aesthetic; culture and economics. Connections that will let you look at old ideas with a fresh perspective and gain true insight through a culture of reflection. It gets you thinking—and talking—about where you fit in and what impact you will make in the world. In our Core Curriculum, you’ll expand your thinking beyond the boundaries of your major. It’s where disciplines such as science, art, literature, history, and theology come together to raise new questions, spark fresh debate, and inspire innovative thinking. And it takes objective listening, critical thinking, and an ability to effectively communicate your views.

FACULTY PROFILE: Tauna Sisco, Ph.D.


There’s one in every classroom. In your four years here, your professors are going to be a big part of your life. So it’s a good thing that they’re truly extraordinary—as individuals, as teachers, and as experts in their fields. We don’t have any teaching assistants, only full faculty members, dedicated to your success. So if you’re looking for guidance, subject matter expertise, inspiration, or opportunities to explore further and learn more, just ask. That’s what they’re here for. Our classes are more personal because they’re small, with individual attention and easy access to everything. Raise your voice in the classroom, because it’s your time to be heard. We’re listening.

“When I see students take what they learn in the classroom out into their jobs and communities, it’s exciting to me as an academic. It’s their “Aha!” moment of learning, and a rewarding moment for me.” That’s what makes teaching sociology so enjoyable for Tauna Sisco. And her passion is felt by students in her classes, whether it’s intro to sociology, sociological theory, political sociology, or social statistics. “She makes it all real and relevant,” they say. It’s even more real when they become partners on their prof’s research. They interview adults at homeless shelters and family-in-transition homes to gather demographic and other information. That kind of community-based, experiential learning is an important part of the academic experience for most Saint Anselm students. And it shows them how to take their education to the next level. “Being a sociologist makes you more perceptive about what’s going on. It gives you a better lens,” she says. “That’s usually a blessing, but it can be a curse because you never shut it off.” Many of Professor Sisco’s students go on to work with homeless and at-risk populations or enroll in graduate studies that give them the tools to address complex social problems. The professor loves to hear from them after they graduate. (Anselmians stay in touch.)

Chapel Art Center

Dana Center for the Humanities and the Arts This is where the liberal arts meet the performing arts. Each year, we host classical theatre, contemporary dance, concerts, comedy, and films. During the afternoon before a show, performers meet with groups of interested students. Our stage also is the venue for the Anselmian Abbey Players, our student theatre group. And, if your alter-ego is Stephen Spielberg or J.J. Abrams, you can get involved here as a lighting technician, sound board operator, or set designer.

A few things you’ll do as an Anselmian: RACE A CHARIOT At Floralia, the annual Roman Celebration hosted by the Classics Society.

WALK FOR A CURE By participating in Relay for Life, where we raise over $100,000 annually for cancer research.

STOP THE PRESSES When you break a campus story for The Crier, our student newspaper.

DESIGN A MASTERPIECE During the Gingerbread House Competition, a yearly tradition that has yielded edible versions of Hogwarts, Snoopy’s doghouse, and of course, our own Alumni Hall.

TAKE THE STAGE By writing and directing your own original play with the Anselmian Abbey Players.

AND, OF COURSE, PARTY (LIKE AN ANSELMIAN) At Party Your Classes Off (PYCO), planned by our Campus Activities Board. Free food, free swag, carnival games, and giant inflatables on the quad. Need we say more?

SHOW OFF YOUR BIG BRAIN In Quiz Bowl, a Jeopardy-like team competition that gets everyone buzzing. PERFORM INTERNATIONALLY On a European tour during spring break with the College Choir.

CELEBRATE THE BARD During a day of sonnet reading and cake eating for Shakespeare’s birthday (it’s April 23, but you probably already knew that). GO OUT WITH A BANG When each academic year ends with a fireworks display that you can watch with your friends right on campus.

LEAVE YOUR MARK By starting a new club we haven’t thought of yet!

CAMPUS LIFE

The Alva de Mars Megan Chapel Art Center is the former home of our chapel, and it has the stunning stained glass windows and hand-painted vaulted ceiling to show for it. Now it’s the home of our permanent art collection and hosts varied exhibitions throughout the year.


#EVERYDAY ANSELMIAN. We can all agree that Saint Anselm College is special. Our community of students, faculty, staff, monks, and alumni come to us with different backgrounds, beliefs, passions and voices. But there is one uncommon character trait that we all share: Each of us is an Anselmian.

 These are just some of the extraordinary voices of Saint Anselm College. www.anselm.edu/everyday-anselmian


EVERYDAY ANSELMIAN


You might be new here, but you won’t be alone. More than 90 percent of students live on campus. You could live in a traditional residence hall, suite, townhouse, or apartment. It’s where you’ll live, sleep, and study, but it’s also where you’ll get together with friends for barbecues, movie marathons, RA events, or just hours of conversation.

ROOM

(and never bored)

AN OPEN DOOR POLICY.

You’ll notice this Anselmian tradition before you enter a single building: students have a tendency to hold doors open for one another. Sure, it sounds like simple courtesy, but at Saint Anselm, it’s very real. Maybe it’s our Benedictine tradition of hospitality, or our we’re-allin-this-together spirit, but it’s a small thing that says big things about our character. Take it with you when you graduate. Your education is guaranteed to open doors.


RESIDENTIAL LIFE & DINING

A THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE. A HUNGER FOR LUNCH. Our dining facilities and our food were named among the top 10 in the nation. In addition to our main dining hall, featuring a grill, deli, salad bar, and fresh baked goods, there’s a smaller café, a Starbucks, and a coffee shop with a pub and patio.

This is the one place you’ll find the legendary Saint A’s burger and Egg Saint A’s.

THE CARR CENTER

The three-story fitness facility in our student activities center features 37 cardio machines, 39 strength pieces, and 7,000 pounds of weights, along with indoor basketball and tennis courts.


STUDENT PROFILE:

Abby Roden ’20 My service experiences here have changed how I look at the world.


We believe in giving and serving; it’s at the core of our Catholic, Benedictine heritage. It’s what makes us Anselmian. There are so many opportunities to volunteer at Saint Anselm including through the classroom, our Meelia Center for Student Engagement, or Campus Ministry. Through the Meelia Center, you can do everything from tutoring at local schools to teaching therapeutic riding lessons; it also manages our service-learning option. Campus Ministry plans retreats, Service & Solidarity Missions Trips, and the Road for Hope, a 130-mile walk that raises money for local charities. Service trips during school breaks send students around the country (and abroad) to serve others. Students volunteer in soup kitchens, build bunk beds or homes, and provide a smiling face to those in need.

Through the Meelia Center for Community Engagement, Abby supports victims of domestic violence at the YWCA and assists homeless youth at Child and Family Services. She spent the summer in South Dakota living and volunteering at a Native American Women’s Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence shelter. She’s even volunteered abroad as part of an ethical backpacking trip through Israel and Palestine. She credits the Meelia Center and her social work professors with giving her the tools, knowledge, and opportunities she needs to make a difference.

SERVICE

THE DESIRE TO SERVE.


The Monks of Saint Anselm The Benedictine monks have been an integral part of the Saint Anselm experience since the beginning. Scholars in their own right, several of them teach classes in their academic disciplines. You’ll also see them in administrative roles, or saying mass in the Abbey Church. You’re even likely to see them running on our cross country trails, working out in the Fitness Center, cheering for the Hawks at a basketball game, or joining a trivia team on a Tuesday night in the Pub. When you arrive on campus, it might seem unusual to see men in black robes. But by the time you graduate, you won’t be able to imagine college life without them.

Campus Ministry Just as the Abbey Church is the spiritual center of campus, the Office of Campus Ministry is the spiritual center of student life. Campus Ministry serves everyone on campus, no matter what their religious beliefs. Whether you need information, inspiration, or just a listening ear, this is the place to find it. You can explore prayer and styles of worship from different faiths, and deepen your understanding of spirituality in your life.

COMMUNITY

Our Catholic Benedictine tradition of faith, reason, and community engagement is the foundation of life at Saint Anselm. And it comes to life every day through the community of Benedictine monks who live at Saint Anselm Abbey. But you’ll also see it in the lives of the students who work together to create an environment where hard work pays off, where new paths are discovered, and where time-honored traditions are a part of life (and new traditions are created all the time).

of 2018 graduates are employed, in graduate school, or engaged in service.

The experience you have at Saint Anselm will give you the skills and insight that employers are looking for. You’ll go into the field for actual research. You’ll go into the workforce for real career experience. And when you’re ready to take that next step into a career or graduate school, you will find the help you need. Wherever your Saint Anselm experience takes you, you’ll use your creativity and flexibility to solve problems, communicate ideas, work collaboratively, and inspire others. As you start to embark upon your life’s work, you’ll find that you’ve already begun. YOU’LL GRADUATE. AND THEN WHAT? This is the best part—in a lot of ways—because it could pretty much be anything. Maybe you’ll work at a top financial services firm, or join a lab in a nationally recognized research hospital, like some of our recent graduates. If you plan to continue your studies, you’ll find that your Saint Anselm degree can lead to some other equally impressive degrees. Anselmians are enrolled in master’s and Ph.D. programs at places such as Boston College, Princeton, Yale, Georgetown Law, University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, Tufts University School of Medicine, and Peking University (Beijing, China). Your liberal arts education gives you a solid foundation for any career and the ability to adapt to changes in technology and in the workplace. Your specialized studies give you the relevant knowledge and latest thinking in your academic discipline. But to get a competitive edge, you need real job experience. An internship is not required here, but there’s no better way to explore an industry, see the inner workings of the workplace, and begin to build your professional network.

STUDENT PROFILE:

Sybille Légitime ’18


Want a great post-grad job? Start by making the most of your four years on campus. Sybille Légitime arrived on campus in awe of the beautiful place that would be her home for the next four years. And a “home” it most certainly became. She combined her thirst for knowledge of international affairs with her academically curious mind into a double major in international business and computer science. Sybille immersed herself into campus life by tutoring students in French and Spanish classes. She was a resident assistant in the dorms and a consistent presence in the Intercultural Center. She even gave back by working with the Meelia Center for Community Engagement on a school-supply drive for an elementary school in her home nation of Haiti. As if these pursuits weren’t enough, she landed a software engineering internship at sports network giant ESPN. “I loved it,” Sybille says. “First, I was on the front-end engineering team for seven weeks, maintaining different editions of ESPN.com as well as one of its editorial tools. I fixed a bug on the website’s Venezuelan edition, edit the U.S. site’s tennis page, or redirect online content for an ESPN special. I had tasks that spanned from minor to critical and learned a lot in the process.” After graduating, she stayed in New Hampshire to work as an Associate Software Engineer at Amadeus, a cloud-native software company providing tools and resources for the hospitality industry. Sybille credits her entire liberal arts experience for her postgraduate career.

STUDY ABROAD & RESEARCH

THERE’S NO REASON TO WAIT UNTIL GRADUATE SCHOOL TO DO REAL RESEARCH. Monumental ideas. Deep connections. Inventive solutions. Federally funded grants have allowed us to create and cultivate a research-rich environment. As assistants and paid researchers in our labs, students are advancing scientific thinking and pushing toward real breakthroughs. They’re even getting their names in the scientific literature as co-authors and conference presenters, right along with their professors.

A FEW OF OUR FACULTY/ STUDENT RESEARCH PROJECTS: A model for understanding the development of human cancers The relationship between body mass index and age-related eye disease The behavioral mechanisms of drug abuse relapse Media portrayal of women in politics Seasonal migration of wild brook trout Knee stability in long-distance runners HIV/AIDS law in the Middle East and North Africa Forest mapping with remote sensing technology


Go Face-to-Face with the Leader of the Free World

“No one runs for president without speaking at Saint A’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics.” Marc Ambinder, The Atlantic

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or independent voter. And it makes no difference whether you’re a politics major, a computer scientist, or a future doctor. People from across the political spectrum come together here to discuss and debate the important issues of the day. This is where ideas are challenged, ideologies compete, and the democratic process is alive and well.

LIFE-CHANGING MOMENTS It’s the kind of thing that happens regularly at Saint Anselm College. Presidential candidates stop by the NHIOP, greeting students (and taking selfies) along the way. You’ll meet journalists, chief campaign strategists or a U.S. Senator while getting coffee at the café. Hang around long-enough and you never know who you might run into.

AT THE INSTITUTE:

6 smart classrooms 4 seminar rooms 5 research centers a 200-seat auditorium a television studio 2,015 students who care about their future.

NEW HAMPSHIRE INSTITUTE OF POLITICS

In the past 40 years, every United States president, and nearly every candidate or presidential hopeful, has debated or spoken right here.

At Saint Anselm’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics, we hold the nation’s first presidential primary debates, giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness (and participate in) history in the making. CNN and The Daily Show usually stop by our campus. Plus Anderson Cooper, Megyn Kelly, and George Stephanopoulos. Also, the next president of the United States, and you. During the Institute’s nationally televised primary debates, you can work as a courier, guide, or media assistant. You might be able to go backstage with the candidates, interview beltway insiders, and make media connections that will lead to opportunities later. And that’s undebatably cool.

Each of us plays different sports, but we’re all on the same team. On our campus, whenever any Saint Anselm Hawk hits the field (or the ice, the court or the course), it’s with a crowd full of Anselmians cheering them on. In the last few years, some of our teams have hoisted Northeast 10, ECAC, and NEWHA conference championship trophies and many have played in national tournaments. Our athletes and coaches have received recognition including All-Conference, AllRegion, All-American, and Coach of the Year. And our Hawks take the term “student-athlete” seriously. 94 of them were placed on Dean’s List this past spring.

ATHLETICS

WE BRING A SPIRIT OF COMPETITION TO EVERYTHING WE DO. Every victory is hard fought and won, and every setback makes us stronger and better prepared for the next challenge. We don’t back down. We never give up. On the ice or in the classroom. On the football field or in the research lab. On the golf course or in a philosophy course.


The college wants student-athletes’ lives to be less stressful so they can focus on academics and athletics.

STUDENT PROFILE:

Drew Bourdeau ’18


secondary education and math double major from Massachusetts

Drew Bourdeau chose Saint Anselm both for the stellar teacher education program and for lacrosse—but what he discovered when he arrived on campus was a tight-knit community that defied his expectations. The future math teacher quickly realized that at Saint Anselm, we take care of our own. From academics to athletics, Drew found supportive, caring people who did more for him than just open doors (figuratively and literally). On the lacrosse field, the co-captain played defense on a team that was more like a second family. And in the classroom, he says faculty were understanding about the challenges studentathletes faced balancing varsity athletics and school work. They were willing to help any way they could because they wanted him to succeed. Not surprisingly, Drew’s activities on campus weren’t limited to academics and sports. He was co-chair of the student athlete advisory committee, advocating for his fellow Hawks both on campus and with the NCAA. He was proud of being a student-athlete and of the work he and his fellow athletes accomplished through volunteering and involvement on campus. One hundred percent a team player, Drew also found time to welcome first-year students as an orientation leader, participate in service trips and volunteer through the Meelia Center. Now, Drew is sharing his time and talents with his students as a math teacher while also earning his master’s degree in education.
