If you're looking for a close-knit community and a place to grow in faith and be in a college that truly knows its people and its professors, you'll definitely receive a great education.
They have not only taught me to become a virtuous leader, but also to become economically smart, practically smart, professionally smart. They help you realize what the real world is going to be like.
The house lunches are a huge sense of community, and we genuinely talk to each other regardless of age, station, or ties into the school environment. I think the religious tradition has a lot to do with that.
The residential community creates an environment of peace, love, caring, and tight bonds.
I felt that teachers at Aquinas genuinely cared about by success and that was such a relief coming from such a big school.
I study Arts & Sciences at Aquinas College because the professors genuinely care about the formation of the whole person and want the mind to be formed in a truly classical education.
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.
The Graduate Program in Education at Aquinas College is an educator’s dream. Tailored to the working teacher, the classes are not only convenient, but meaningful as well. After one semester of Aquinas classes I have a renewed love for education!
The faculty, together with the Dominican Sisters, play a big role in ensuring that my fellow students and I have a very fruitful, and satisfying experience at Aquinas.
"I was attracted to Aquinas because it taught the Catholic Faith and had a good nursing program."
"I wanted a strong Catholic college with a great Business program. I found them both at Aquinas."
What I appreciate most about student life at Aquinas is the close-knit community in the dorms. It is supportive, academically focused and faith-rooted – and that doesn’t happen just anywhere.
I needed something that was more one-on-one than just a lecture setting where there were an overwhelming number of students within a classroom.
I'm Catholic. I just love that the school can live by its faith values because faith plays a big role in my life.
I just like the rich Catholic environment here. You pray before class and before meals. There's a sense of community.
You go to house lunches and it's not just students, it's faculty and administrators eating together, so you get to know them on a personal level. It's like a family dinner.
Aquinas makes you attentive to the different ways that God leads us to a vocation.
We had one mother who said it better than anything that I could ever say. She said, "My son is at Aquinas College learning to be a business leader with a soul." And if we can do that, then I'm pretty happy. That's all I can ask.
Aquinas teaches me to think beyond myself and think about the common good and how to serve others.
If you want to learn how to think—not only what to think—then Arts & Sciences at Aquinas College is the place to be. It provides a unique environment where you will be able to grow intellectually and spiritually, preparing you for anything the future could bring.
The faculty is so nice and enthusiastic! They are always willing to help.
That first week of getting to know each other and having the camp Marymount experience, you felt instantly in place.
The academic culture at Aquinas is both rigorous and incredibly supportive. Knowing that your professors believe in your ability to achieve is a powerful motivator to succeed confidently.
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 would tell prospective students to make sure they visit for a day, just so they can see the atmosphere and experience what a day would be like if they attended Aquinas.
