Student Testimonials

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.

Because they're not just giving you everything...know this, know this, know this, this list of things, and you're good for life? No! Know this foundational principle, know why, and then when you come across things in life, you can apply anything to this and you will know what to do.

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 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.

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.

Having the experience of actually being out in the workforce, and having to come back to school, I can generally see what is used and what's not used. And Aquinas is one of those schools that almost every business class that I've taken has been relevant, it's been important, and it's increased my toolkit of different things that I can do in the real world.

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.

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.

For me, my abroad experience was a time to build my relationship with God without the distractions of home life, while keeping in mind that home life is where I am to bring my newfound gifts back.

By engaging in a new culture and unfamiliar surroundings, I was compelled to grow in new ways, not only as a student but as a person in general. The AquinasAbroad program is something every student should experience.

My time in Italy was a constant encounter with God through beauty, a beauty found in the landscape, the architecture, the art, the people (the Italians and my classmates and the saints), and in the opportunity to slow down and soak it all in.

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!

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.

“Teaching has an extraordinary moral depth and is one of humanity’s excellent and creative activities, for the teacher does not write on inanimate material, but on the very spirits of human beings.”

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.

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

It has been such a blessing in my life to be enrolled in the Teacher Education, Graduate Studies Program at Aquinas. Nowhere else in the country could I receive such a high caliber education, enriched with the beauty of the Dominican Tradition. It is literally life-changing to goto a school where the Catholic faith is so alive and well, both in and out of the classroom. That school is Aquinas.
