Writers’ Night

Every spring Aquinas College sponsors a contest to honor excellence in student academic writing. The Writers’ Night contest is open to students from all classes and majors, and you can submit an essay from any class taken at Aquinas College. A panel of Aquinas faculty selects five winners every year, and the winning students present and discuss their papers at our annual award ceremony, the Writers’ Night Symposium.
