We, here at The Hilltopper would like to extend a warm welcome to this year’s Freshman class. As you arrive on campus and begin your Anselmian journey keep in mind these three things: the value of community, the value of service, and the value of inclusivity. These three things are paramount to the success of Saint Anselm as an institution, and we strive everyday to ensure we serve our community and provide a welcoming and accommodating home for our students. You have a unique opportunity to determine exactly where you fit within the fabric of our community.
As a member of the Saint Anselm Community you should explore opportunities to get involved on campus and within your residence halls. RA’s are frequently holding community building events where you can get to know your fellow Anselmians. You can also join various clubs on campus or attend different club sponsored events throughout the year. Regardless of your interests there is always something happening here on campus.
Perhaps one of the things that defines Saint Anselm College the most is our dedication to and encouragement of service to others. Take time out of your busy schedules to volunteer in the community. We have a plethora of volunteer opportunities and positions at the Meelia Center. Do your part to serve your fellow community members on and off campus.
The last thing to keep in mind is that at SAC we are each responsible for making others feel welcome in our home. Respect your neighbors, peers, and professors, as well as the hundreds of Saint Anselm employees who are responsible for the day to day operations of the college. We all have an obligation to continue our tradition of Benedictine hospitality. Regardless of our backgrounds, interests, or abilities we are all Anselmian.
Welcome to Saint Anselm College, we’re all excited you’re here.
