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.

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.
