Saint Anselm College is a private, Benedictine, Catholic liberal arts college in Goffstown, New Hampshire. Founded in 1889 by Abbot Hilary Pfrängle, O.S.B. of Saint Mary's Abbey in Newark, New Jersey, at the request of Bishop Denis M. Bradley of Manchester, New Hampshire, the college is the third-oldest Catholic college in New England. Named after Saint Anselm of Canterbury, the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 to 1109, the college continues to have a fully functioning and independent Benedictine abbey attached to it - Saint Anselm Abbey. According to the college, the student body is selected not only for their academic abilities but also for their personal character. The college's academic curriculum requires several philosophy and theology courses and the completion of a two-year nationally recognized humanities program entitled "Portraits of Human Greatness." The administration's commitment to an anti grade inflation policy helped the college receive national media attention from the Fox News Channel in 2006, as well as a Tier 1 ranking from U.S. News and World Report in 2010. Offering over 30 majors, as well as 23 minors, the college does not allow double majors. Student to faculty ratio is 11:1, as most classes never have over 18 students; 95% of professors hold terminal degrees. - Source: Wikipedia
