Welcome Parents

Recent research shows today's students consider their parents to be their best advisors. As students adjust to college life, the challenges of living away from home, and a more rigorous academic environment, they will be calling you for advice. They will seek your support and affirmation that they can be successful at Saint Anselm College.

We believe that living on campus makes this transition easier for students and their parents. Residential Life and Education Staff are focused on helping your student have a successful year. We also hope to provide parents with information necessary to be effective advisors for your students. Please browse this Web site to find more information to help your student have a successful college career.

Once your student checks into their residence hall and begins classes, all their records; including but not limited to academic records, medical records, judicial (student conduct) records, etc. are protected by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). While Residential Life Staff is here to help you and your student, we may not be able to give you all the information you were once used to receiving, without prior consent from your student.

When and who to call if you have concerns

If you are concerned about your student, the Residential Life and Education staff is here to help you. We will provide you with what information we can without violating FERPA, and work with you to come to a solution. 

Please contact your student's Resident Director or Area Coordinator directly with your concerns. If we don't know there is a problem, we can't help, but if we are made aware of a problem we can act accordingly.
