The Anselmian Sophomore Experience is aimed at helping second-year students achieve success in and out of the classroom. The sophomore year of college is a unique time for students as they grow intellectually, personally, spiritually, and socially. Through a variety of programs, we hope to help sophomores gain direction for their future, make a connection to the college, their peers, and the community, and gain awareness about their own strengths and skills.
The second year is a time to further develop your academic plan; learn about and plan for study abroad, internships, opportunities for professional development; take on leadership roles; learn about others, learn to self-advocate and find your niche.
Develop your Pathway Plan - Create an integrated and unique plan to actively discover your purpose and place within the Saint Anselm community and seek insight in key areas of your collegiate experience based on your goals. To get started, contact Dr. Karlea Brunelle to set up an appointment at (603) 641-7600.
Kick off the spring semester of your sophomore year by attending the Summit on Friday, January 26! The Summit provides sophomores with the opportunity to connect with fellow students, faculty/staff, and alumni. You will walk away with defined academic, career, and personal goals.
Your second year can be an exciting time as you get more involved on campus and begin to think about your future. It's also a time that may bring up many questions, such as:
Am I in the right major?
Should my major factor into my study abroad, co-curricular and internship decisions?
What are some ways to get more involved on and off campus?
Where do I begin to explore possible career paths?
How can I have a meaningful college experience?
Attend the Sophomore Summit and you'll have all the answers! Students will have the chance to attend and participate in a variety of sessions. Session topics include leadership, academic engagement, co-curricular opportunities, career preparation, financial issues, and health/wellness and life after college. Don't miss out on the fun that kicks off with a great dinner with alumni, student leaders, and classmates.
Sophomore Suppers are hosted by the Sophomore Leadership Council and are opportunities for you to interact with upperclass students and alumni to learn about their experiences related to internships, study abroad, campus involvement related to the world or work, mentoring and other topics.

The Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross and the Way of Sorrow (Via Crucis in Latin), detail fourteen different moments on the day Jesus died. This prayer pilgrimage is a powerful way to grow closer to Jesus at any time of the year, though it is most popular during the Lenten season.
Admitted students and families are invited to the Hilltop to meet fellow prospective students, current students, and professors. Take a campus-tour, speak with staff members from various student-life offices, and enjoy a meal in our dining hall.
