Parents and Families

We are pleased to offer this section of our site as one way of informing and involving parents and families in the life of the college and your student. As a parent, guardian, or family member of a Saint Anselm student, you are an important part of the college community.

Thank you for all that you do to support your student and the college.

New Student Orientation


We look forward to welcoming the class of 2019 and transfer students to campus on Thursday, August 27, 2015 for Orientation Part II!

Family Weekend


It's time to plan your trip to the Hilltop. Your entire family is invited to visit, play, cheer, tour, and experience life as an ANSELMIAN, October 23-25, 2015!

Join your Anselmian on campus for a day or two (or the entire weekend). There's lots to do! Catch a show (at the Dana Center), or an athletic game, or an ice cream.

Commencement 2016


The Class of 2016 will hold their commencement exercises on the lawn in front of Alumni Hall Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The Senior Academic Honors Convocation and Baccalaureate Mass will be held on Friday, May 20.

Get Involved


Through the Parents Program, you can help your children succeed. This program was created to bring together the exceptional resources of the Anselmian community, all with the goal of supporting our students.

There are many ways to participate. You can help future Anselmians connect with the college: aid the admissions office by contacting prospective students, hosting a regional reception or attending events as a college liaison. You can assist young alumni as they transition out of college and into successful careers by partnering with our career services office. By sharing your professional expertise and serving as a point of contact between your employer and the college, you can create opportunities for our graduates to demonstrate their skills, character and values. Or you can support our current students by making a gift to advance our programs and mission or by thanking other parent donors.

Your support is needed.  Become an active Anselmian now! Registering through our Anselmian Volunteer Network is the first step toward a fulfilling involvement with your child's education at Saint Anselm College.
