"Our evening was a big success!  We held our 26th Annnual Historic Preservation Awards at the lovely campus of St. Anselm College.  The Conference & Event Services staff was great to work with and the Catering staff was extremely accomodating.  Our guests were truly wowed by the peaceful atmosphere, delicious food and elegant service provided in Davison Hall.  The Dana Center was the ideal setting for the presentation of awards and the large screen, in house sound and lighting systems and comfortable seating made for a perfect venue."

Saint Anselm College is my first choice for events!  I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Saint Anselm College and Rob Foreman, Director of Conference & Event Services on two multi day events in 2018.  I look forward to more scheduled events in 2019 and 2020!  Rob's professionalism, attention to detail and customer service is outstanding.  Rob met with me on a few occasions to accomodate specific IT requests and without hesitation.  The IT team was also super helpful on the day of the event helping one of our speakers with a Zoom connectivity issue.  We held our events at the beautiful Roger and Francine Jean Student Center and could not have been happier.  The Catering Director worked with me to create a menu that not only was delicious but also met our client's dietary needs and kept me within budget.  The entire Catering staff was very professional and attentive.  Our group was particularly pleased with the yummy homemade brownies that were served!
The venue is warm and inviting while also remaining competitvely priced.  I encountered numerous staff during our events as well as many students.  The kindess and consideration that were extended to our group uniquely align with the Catholic traditions that are being taught at Saint Anselm and certainly added to our grups overall stellar experiences.
Many thanks Rob and Saint Anselm!
