"It is awesome that Aquinas is in Nashville."

- Mary F.
Aquinas Student

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.
Nursing student

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.

- Mary-Frances N.
Nursing student

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.

- Gregory S.
Education student

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

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

- Arts & Sciences Student

Aquinas makes you attentive to the different ways that God leads us to a vocation.

- Ana T.
Philosophy Major

The faculty is so nice and enthusiastic! They are always willing to help.

- Abbey
Student

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

- Scott A.
Management, '14

"It has been a place where I have been able to get involved, meet fun people, and be challenged academically."

- Mary W.
Aquinas 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

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

The people are great. It's like more of a family than just a college.

- Troy B.
Education student

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

- Ana T.
Philosophy Major

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.

- Cinthia J.
Nursing student

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.

- Lauren
Arts and Sciences student

"I was attracted to Aquinas because it taught the Catholic Faith and had a good nursing program."

- Mary F.
Aquinas Student

The residential community creates an environment of peace, love, caring, and tight bonds.

- Gregory S.
Education 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

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.

- Arts & Sciences 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

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

- Ana T.
Philosophy Major

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

- Troy B.
Education student

"Going into the medical field, I especially wanted a school that valued the dignity of human life."

- Maria
Student

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.
