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.

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.

- Ana T.
Philosophy Major

We're like a really close-knit community. We all know each other. We come together and truly care. It's not something you find in a bigger college where there are so many people. Here you have the opportunity to get to know everyone personally.

- Cinthia J.

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

- Augusta K.

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.

- Therese Y.

The professors are superb. We have small class sizes and a close community and family feel. It fosters human flourishing. We love it!

I love all my professors. They care about their students and challenge them. Their faith is number one in their lives and that’s what matters the most to me.

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.

That first week of getting to know each other and having the camp Marymount experience, you felt instantly in place.

- Ana T.

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.

- Arts & Sciences Student

Aquinas teaches me to think beyond myself and think about the common good and how to serve others.

- Ana T.
Philosophy Major

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.

- Cinthia J.
Nursing 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.

- Mary-Frances N.
Nursing student

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.

- Arts and Sciences student

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.

- Cinthia J.
Nursing student

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

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

- Scott A.
