The Dean's office is a joke, they are bias and DO NOT act in what is best for the student. The school allows athletes to have their own set of rules and get away with violent acts against women. There are numerous trips to the emergency room and the school plays a do not ask do not tell game. This school is not what it appears to be.
To be honest, it was very boring. The academics are great, but socially, it is very boring. There is no such thing as living the college life here. I regret choosing this school. Many females are very judgmental, I try to make friends but they all shut me out. Mostly white people there so maybe its because of my skin color. They are very snobby. One time I made a lovely friend and she was amazing but one day a couple of girls thought it was OK to make fun of her dress. Laughing behind my friend thinking she wasn't listening, but I was. I spoke up for her. They are all bark but no bite. But I only attend to this school because of their reputation nothing more. But it does get very lonely.
it is a great small school with a lot of resources and people who care for u. Meeting new people is easy because everyone is friendly and getting to the best conference in the NE10 for those in it and great food. I love it. Needs more diversity for it to grow more and more.
I absolutely love the school. The atmosphere is fantastic. Everyone knows each other and even if you're not friends, they're still polite. The professors are fantastic and are always available. There was one time I needed to talk to a professor at eleven at night and she responded not even ten minutes later. The food is great and the school recently placed in the top 100 liberal arts colleges in the US.

I would tell myself to trust myself. I had a lot of problems with classes at the beginning of college becaues I did not trust myself or have confidence in myself. I would know the correct answer in my head, but I would never take the risk and raise my hand. The best advice I would give myself is to take risks. When you trust yourself and take risks, you learn. Mistakes are a crucial part of gaining an education. I have learned more from my mistakes than my sucesses and I don't regret any of my mistakes. By being too conservative, I missed opportunites. When you take risks, you live. It is better to fail than to never take a chance at all.
I would have to say the two most frustrating things about attending Saint Anselm College would be the cold winter weather and the non-buffet style of eating. The reason cold weather is one of the worst things about this school is not only does the winter bring excruciatingly cold weather it also brings masses of snow which almost puts you in hibernation, making you not want to step foot outside. The reason non-buffet style of eating is frustrating is because as an athlete you need to consume enough carbs to replenish your body but this obstructs those needs.
My classmates at Saint Anselm College are extremely hard-working, motivated, humble and enthusiastic individuals with a common goal to maximize their intellectual abilities, to eventually be ethical leaders and informed citizens, who contribute to a more just community and world.
someone that is ready for a lot of school work
I think the best thing about the school is the learning enviroment. I find it much easier to learn in a small classroom setting rather than the lecture halls. I also feel that because of this enviroment I get to know the professors on a friendlier level. I am not just another student in the class. They know me by name and I can go for help whenever I need it
Someone who can't handle a heavy work load with difficult grading. It's also a really small college, everyone knows everyone, it's just like high school, with a lot of drama.
Hard grading policy
It was close to home for me in Boston, plus it is a beautiful campus. The school seemed like a small community.
I brag about the food and the weekend social life the most. I also like to brag about the monks that live on campus, as well as those who teach at and run our school.
Intellectual superiorty meets religious supremecy.
Grades are scaled downward to the schools own scaling
The professors here definitely know your name. The classes tend to be pretty small, and they're even smaller if your in the honors program. I don't personally find them particularly rigorous, but I know there are many who would disagree. Academic conversations do not take place outside of class, and the students are not at all competitive.
St A's does have a reputation for grade deflation (hence the nickname St C's). It is not something I have experienced, but I have heard professors talk about it. All the professors I have right now do not go along with it.
Something that is very important to realize before you go to St A's is the requirements. You have to do their 2-year humanities program, which consists of 2 lectures and 2 seminars every week (for a total of 4 days a week of humanities). You are also required to take 3 semesters of philosophy and 3 of theology. One of your theology classes has to be Biblical Theology. Yes, Bib Theo is a REQUIRED class. You are also required to take at least 2 semesters of a foreign language beyond elementary level. As a senior in college you are still taking classes to fill these requirements. And then you have any requirements for your major.
Politics are important here, and I think there are a lot of opportunities for politics majors. But I wouldn't say the students are politically active.
There really isn't a lot to do here on weekends if you're not into partying/drinking. The school has been making an effort to provide more alternatives, though. Free skate night is great; a ton of people go. Last time, they ran out of skates. Community service is another really big thing here. Spring Break Alternative (SBA) has students spend the week of spring break doing various community service projects at sites around the country, and it has a couple hundred participants. Jazz band and the choir seem pretty popular. Guest speakers get no attendence at all unless a professor offers extra credit for attending.
St A's has a strict intervisitation policy. On weeknights, members of the opposite sex have to be out of the building by 11. On weekends it's 2 am. You have to sign into the building and leave an ID, and when it's time the RAs come and hunt you down. This is especially frustrating if you want to have visitors from out town. Where are they supposed to sleep? In their car?
The dinig hall closes really early: 7 during the week and 6 on weekends. They do have the Coffee Shop, though, and that is open until midnight. The food is really, really good, and they have a nice selection of vegetarian options. The meal plan here is per item instead of per meal. I think you get roughly $2000 per semester.
I honestly haven't heard any. I don't think the school is well-known enough to have stereotypes.
Full disclosure: I am tranferring out of Saint Anslem.
Also, nothing I say here pertains to the nursing program
St A's is run by Benedictine monks. You see them walking around campus. Monks aren't particularly common nowadays, so it's a little unusual. The school is kind of isolated-- there's nothing within walking distance (it's in a residential area). Manchester is a 10-minute bus ride away, but there's not much going on there either. And they really, really love philosophy here.
