Student Testimonials

An Aquinas education is not just all about the individual – it is about the community.

- Augusta K.
Nursing Student, Chicago, IL

I belong at Aquinas because it's helped me grow as a person and in my faith and to better know God and better know and love Him. I don't think I'd have had that experience somewhere else or at another college.

- Cinthia J.

You have opportunities for daily mass or adoration, or living on campus, three days a week we hold rosary walks and night prayer. You don't find that anywhere else.

- Cinthia J.

I just like the rich Catholic environment here. You pray before class and before meals. There's a sense of community.

- Troy B.

The Aquinas College program enables you to engage in course material in an in depth way because of the small class sizes and the teachers’ attention to detail.

"I wanted a strong Catholic college with a great Business program. I found them both at Aquinas."

- Scott A.
Management, '14

Here everybody knows each other. Even the teachers, they know you by name and they truly care. In high school with so many students it was so hard to know everyone. Here the teachers interact on a personal level.

"I love it! I can't imagine living in a better place."

- Mary F.

The faculty is very knowledgeable, especially in the business program. Many of the teachers are adjunct and have experience in the field; this made learning more enjoyable and made me respect my teachers even more.

- Veronica V.

I have a strong sense of belonging here at Aquinas because I have been accepted, respected, and supported by the Aquinas community. I know that I am not just a number, but a human person wanted and recognized by the school.

- Mary-Frances N.

What surprised me the most about Aquinas was the Catholic tradition and how everybody practices it at that level. I'd never seen anything like it, even as a cradle Catholic. It was a whole new thing compared how I'd always practiced.

- Jonathan V.
Business student

At Aquinas, everybody is considered equal and worthy of the respect and dignity that is due to all human persons made in the image and likeness of God.

The people are great. It's like more of a family than just a college.

- Troy B.

Aquinas has made me more aware of callings—a part of the whole person is that everyone has a calling, that everyone is unique and irreplaceable.

When I got here, everyone already had friends established, but whenever I came in, they were so nice and included me. They welcomed me as if I was part of their family.

"I was attracted to Aquinas because it taught the Catholic Faith and had a good nursing program."

- Mary F.
Aquinas Student

In high school, I knew I was going to study nursing in college. And so whenever I was wondering where I should go to school, they said go to Aquinas College because Aquinas nurses are selected before anyone else, from the hospitals, they seek us out. So that was definitely a cool thing about Aquinas and why I wanted to study nursing.

- Sarah G.
Nursing student

I've ever had a sister as a teacher. It breaks downs stereotypes and misconceptions about being taught by a sister. They are lovely and intelligent and a reminder of the love that God has for us. They take such a sacrifice but there is such joy in that, and it reminds you that to live for others is the love that this world needs more of.

- Ana T.
Philosophy Major
