In May of last year, the class of 2023 left the Hilltop with great aspirations, ready to share their knowledge, gifts, and Anselmian experiences with the wider world. Within six months, 97% of the class was employed, continuing their education, or volunteering either with an organization or with a branch of the United States military. Within nine months, 99% of the class was employed, continuing their education or volunteering.

Saint Anselm College graduates went on to roles at JP Morgan Wealth Management, Tufts School of Medicine, and USA Today. They’re teaching at public and private schools across New England and as far as Spain. Nursing graduates are caring for patients at Boston Children’s Hospital, University of Virginia, and through the United States Army.

A recent first-destination survey demonstrated that 25 organizations hired more than one Saint Anselm graduate; Fidelity Investments hired the most Anselmians with 12 graduates ranging in majors from computer science to business to communication. Alumni are employed as far away as Montana, Colorado, Florida, India, and Italy, and as close as Manchester, N.H. and Boston, Mass.

Of the 99% of students with outcomes, 18% continued their education at colleges and universities around the country. Majors in Criminal Justice, Psychology, Economics and Business, and Biological Science led the way in continuing their education. Schools include Syracuse University, University of Notre Dame, and University of Michigan to name a few.

Alumni also volunteered their time post-graduation with organizations such as Americorps, while five graduates are serving in the U.S. Army and Air Force.
