The Office of Student Engagement and Leadership guides students in creating and maintaining successful organizations that are socially responsible, representative of the student body, and that reflect the Saint Anselm College mission.
We are a student-centered office which supports the development of students through positive social, cultural, intellectual, recreational, and leadership experiences.
The office helps create an environment which promotes self-governance, values congruence, and a broader relational understanding of the community in which they live through interactive learning opportunities.
Explore and Get Involved!
The Office of Student Engagement & Leadership coordinates several experiences which engage students in new and fun ways. For more information, contact the office directly by phone at (603) 641-7363.
This Program is held each Fall and includes live entertainment, tours, and various activities on campus. Family Weekend is an enjoyable way to join your Saint Anselm student on campus. Events include live performances by our very own Anselmian Abbey Players, a Family Fun Run/Walk, a reception with members of the college community, athletic events, evening theatre shows, family brunch, and Mass at the Abbey Church.
The Out Cold Program provides students the opportunity to visit area ski resorts at reduced costs. Your fee includes transportation, lift ticket, and a nominal meal voucher at some resorts. Check out one of our trips to Loon Mountain:

Our 'Outer Limits' program provides the Saint Anselm student body with the opportunity to partake in outdoor, recreational activities that encourage development of the whole student. The program focuses its interest in outdoor activities, teaches risk management skills, helps students strive toward their personal limits, builds and creates leaders, allows students to push beyond their comfort zone, uses the wilderness as a classroom and encourages students to trust themselves and their peers when engaging in activities that are outside of their comfort zone.
