At Aquinas College, we offer something that cannot be measured merely by a catalog of course offerings. Since we are specialists, with a unique focus on the dignity of the human person from an authentic Catholic perspective, we offer something which is rooted in Someone: the person of Jesus Christ, Who has a plan for each of us. All of the resources and activities of the campus are directed to helping our students discover that plan and equipping them with the educational, social, and spiritual support they need to respond generously to God’s call. Our St. Jude Chapel occupies a central location at Aquinas, both in geography and in the hearts of the campus community.
In the Fall of 2012, Aquinas College began offering Residential Life in Seton Lodge. The comprehensive House Life program integrates not only the residential students, but all aspects of Student Life.
In May of 2014, Aquinas College sent a group of students to the small, lakeside, Medieval castle town of Bracciano, Italy, about 20 miles northwest of Rome. The College has recently acquired a large property on the outskirts of Bracciano called the Villaggio Betania for use as a home for a future study abroad program.

The Office of Student Life hosts several social activities throughout the academic year including the annual Fall Festival, Christmas Tree Lighting, Mardi Gras Celebration, and Spring Fling. Students also are encouraged to participate in special charitable events on campus such as blood drives and the Christmas gift drive. Please see the Student Life calendar for a list of upcoming activities.
