Enter Campus - Main Entrance
Welcome to the Hilltop! We recommend entering campus by the second and main entrance. Proceed down the tree-lined drive and take your first right turning towards Alumni Hall. Go straight, following the signs to the Welcome Center and visitor parking lot.
Park Here - Visitor Parking
Once you've parked, take a short walk to the front of Alumni Hall to begin your Anselmian journey.

This is where it all began. The iconic Alumni Hall was the first building on campus and has seen many changes in its 130-year history. Today, it houses administrative offices, classrooms, the Modern Languages and Literatures Department, the Chapel Art Center as well as student housing.
