The Healy Room Campaign and Dedication


Saint Anselm College is naming a conference room to honor long-serving Admission Director, Donald Healy ’60. During his 35 years as Admission Director Don helped more than 10,000 Anselmians find their way to the Hilltop.

“Don Healy is a beloved member of the Anselmian community and one of the most significant lay administrators in the history of Saint Anselm College. The naming of the Admission conference room honors his remarkable role in the college’s growth, especially through the 70s and 80s when the college increased enrollment and transitioned to a coed institution,” said Dr. Joseph Favazza, President of the College.

The college embarked on a special fundraising project in January to name the Admission conference room, in the new Savard Welcome Center, in honor of Don Healy’s service to Saint Anselm College. The college received an anonymous gift of $25,000 from an alumnus to help encourage others to honor Don and his dedication to Saint Anselm – as a student-athlete, basketball coach, Admission Director, parent, mentor, colleague and loyal Hawks fan.
