Testimonials

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

- Mary F.

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.

I wanted to attend a college where I would be allowed to freely and fully practice and grow in my faith, while receiving a dynamic, modern nursing education.

- Mary-Frances N.

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.

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

- Scott A.

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.

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.

The house lunches are a huge sense of community, and we genuinely talk to each other regardless of age, station, or ties into the school environment. I think the religious tradition has a lot to do with that.

- Troy B.

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

- Troy B.

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

You have opportunities for daily mass or adoration, or living on campus, three days a week we hold rosary walks and night prayer. You don't find that anywhere else.

- Cinthia J.

The faculty, together with the Dominican Sisters, play a big role in ensuring that my fellow students and I have a very fruitful, and satisfying experience at Aquinas.

- Mary-Frances N.

I'm Catholic. I just love that the school can live by its faith values because faith plays a big role in my life.

- Cinthia J.

I've ever had a sister as a teacher. It breaks downs stereotypes and misconceptions about being taught by a sister. They are lovely and intelligent and a reminder of the love that God has for us. They take such a sacrifice but there is such joy in that, and it reminds you that to live for others is the love that this world needs more of.

- Ana T.

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

- Ana T.

I belong at Aquinas because it's helped me grow as a person and in my faith and to better know God and better know and love Him. I don't think I'd have had that experience somewhere else or at another college.

- Cinthia J.
