Programs and Events

The Office of Student Activities & Leadership Programs coordinates several experiences which engage students in new and fun ways.  For more information, contact the office directly by phone at (603) 641-7363 or


Passages is Saint Anselm College's pre-orientation adventure leadership program.  Incoming students are able to travel to sites across the country with their fellow classmates.  Passages is a great opportunity to get acclimated, start college with an amazing group of friends, and spend time learning and having fun in exciting locations.  

New Student Orientation

NSO is a collaborative program that consists of Summer Advising, the August New Student Orientation, and Transfer Student Orientation in January.  In addition, the office helps coordinate the recruitment, selection, and training of over 60 Orientation Leaders (OL's) every year. 

Family Weekend

Featuring live entertainment, tours and activities, Family Weekend is an enjoyable way to join your Saint Anselm student on campus. Events include live performances by our very own Anselmian Abbey Players, a Family Fun Run/Walk, ice skating, a reception with the president of the college, athletic events, hayrides, and Mass at the Abbey Church.
