Those Were the Days
January 7, 2008
One of the best things about going to school at Saint Anselm College is the feeling that you really belong. Well, unless it’s N.H. primary debate week.
At other schools, students must show their IDs to a cop or security guard before entering their building. At Saint Anselm, students usually enjoy the feeling of a community; we move around campus freely, without having to whip out our IDs at every building.
However, this week was a little different. As all eyes were on our campus, the security increased. So much so that at some points the campus was closed off, completely. Even to us, the Saint Anselm students.
I figured with my all access pass I wouldn’t have this problem of closed off buildings and parking lots. But today I was stopped many times and had to explain that I was working for the college. When it comes to politics even the small college of Saint Anselm becomes locked down.
