Class of 2016 Commencement Exercises
COLLEGE CLOSED: Due to winter weather, the College will be closed today, Wednesday, February 5.
Business major Jeffrey Boyle of Manchester, New Hampshire, earned his commissioning into the United States Marine Corps. In an emotional ceremony on the college quad, Boyle repeated the Officer Oath of Office from his father, Colonel Gregory Boyle '81, a Saint Anselm College alumnus and U.S. Marine, officially authorizing the graduate’s appointment as a Marine Corps Officer. Following the commissioning ceremony, Boyle's mother alumna Leeann (Auger) Boyle '82, and his grandmother pinned on him a 2nd Lieutenant rank insignia worn by his father 35 years ago. Jeffrey's grandfather, Major Edward Boyle '79, a retired Marine and Saint Anselm alumnus, presented his grandson with a small 2nd Lieutenant rank insignia that he wore in 1966.
Happy Independence Day, Anselmians!
