Finding the right college for yourself or your child is a trying but necessary process. It may take some work to find the college that suits one's needs, however the effort is well rewarded.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to take the time to look at as many schools as possible! If i could have changed one thing, it would have been starting earlier and getting out to more schools. Talk to current students, sit in on classes, and stay a night if possible. This is definitely one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. Although I am happy with the school I ended up at, I wonder what could have been if I had taken this process a bit more seriously. The old saying is certainly true, college will be the BEST four years of your life, don't waste a minute of it!! Get involved, try something new, take a chance. You will never get these years back and I am making the most of them. Finally, open your mind and take in all the information you can. I've only completed one year and I can't beleive how much I have learned. Have fun!

What kind of person should attend this school?

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look around and give every college you look at a chance. If you do not have an open mind when you visit or research schools, then the perfect school may pass you by. Also, know where you want to be located (state-wise, climate-wise, etc.) because it will help you to narrow down and eventually find the school of your dreams. Knowing what you want to major in will help too, but if you are undecided, you can still find the school for you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any one who does not like hard classes and the occasional heavy workload. If you just want to party and not go to class and do the work, then Saint Anselm is not for you. Even though people do party up here, there is a real focus on work and on classes

First of all I think parents need to show their children many different opptions of schools, but should not tell the student what their first choice for them is. Second every student needs to determine what the most important thing about the college is to them. If they know that they want a small school focus in on small schools. If it's a certain major then focus on schools that are strong in that major. Saint Anselm college is a perfect example I wanted something somewhat small and that had a good politics program. When I made my decision I based it off what the fact that th program was really good. Now college is really what you make of it. If you want to party you will find the parties, if you want great work experiences you will find that too no matter where you go. You need to get involved and be active in this new community it is your community until you graduate and you need to own it. That's whate makes a college's alumni so faithful and supportive. With strong Alumni networks you will be giving more students opportunities they never dreamed of!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing for me has been that I was unsure of what I wanted to major in and decided later that I wanted to study something the school does not offer. I whish that Saint A's offered a political communications major or at least a communications one. I have heard talks that they may develop one in the future, but I think that at a liberal arts college they need to work on having more majors.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is highly motivated and wants to be given many opportunities to succesed. Saint Anselm College has given me more open doors in to working in the real world then I ever thought possible. If your a politics major it's a must school. Most people think they have to go to a school in DC, but Saint A's offers students jobs at the Preidential primary debates. Who else can say all of the candidates for president have been on there campus at the same time!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

As a new graduate nurse, I am very proud to say that Saint Anselm College is well known for its nursing program. The program?s unique senior preceptorship gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the best nurses, doctors, and professionals in the world. In retrospect, it was the liberal arts education coupled with my preceptorship experience that prepared me to succeed as a professional nurse.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First, what are your interests and do those interests coincide with a career? If so, then you are one of the lucky few who have it all figured out. However, make sure that the school you select offers a good internship program in your senior year. Internships are not as ominous as you think; they are the key to landing your first job. Secondly, if you do not have a career in mind yet, then that's okay. The transition from high school to college is bigger than you think, so consider community college to narrow down your interests and save money. You will be kicking yourself if you spend the first year or two at an expensive school trying to figure out what you want to do. Even if you are lucky enough to find it, then it is unlikely that you will graduate in four years anyway. Furthermore, can you succeed in a classroom with one hundred others? Or would you prefer a smaller student to teacher ratio? Think about it before you select the school that is right for you. Lastly, maintain a balance between work and fun; too much of either is rarely a good thing.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Although Saint Anselm College has recently made strides to diversify its student population, it continues to lack cultural variety. I found this to be frustrating for many students from different backgrounds and ethnicities because the lack of diversity created a barrier to fitting in. I think generating a more diverse student body at Saint Anselm would encourage innovation and allow students to consider perspectives much different from their own.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

St. A's in small, close-knit, and commonly called St. C's, because most students get C's, because they're tough on grading.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The sense of community is evident when one simply walks onto the campus. The professors know their students by name and are sincerely interested in their students' growth as individuals beyond just the classroom.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take the time to reflect on the type of person that you are and the individual that you wish to become. At each potential college ask yourself a series of the same questions and answer them honestly. Do your answers coincide with who you are and who you wish to become? Try to stay focused without putting too much pressure on yourself to find the "perfect fit". College is about adjusting, about discovering, and about leaving as a more defined, more educated person than when you arrived as a freshman. You may not find the perfect fit; don't feel like a failure. Choose the school that best meets your desires and needs. Remember that your college experience, as with any experience in life will come alive and produce fruits based upon your interaction with them and the energy you decide to give. You may wind up attending the school that was last on your list (I did) but it will be okay. Sometimes not getting what you think you wanted results in an unexpected gain. Try to relax and enjoy the possibilities that each school could have for you. Whatever your school, make your experience count for yourself.
