Testimonials

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.

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.

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

- Scott A.

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.

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.

For me, my abroad experience was a time to build my relationship with God without the distractions of home life, while keeping in mind that home life is where I am to bring my newfound gifts back.

- Tyler

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

- Mary F.

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 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.

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.

My time in Italy was a constant encounter with God through beauty, a beauty found in the landscape, the architecture, the art, the people (the Italians and my classmates and the saints), and in the opportunity to slow down and soak it all in.

- Beth

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

- Ana T.

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.

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

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.

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

- Troy B.

On one of my free days I traveled to Rome very early in the morning. I arrived inside St. Peters before the tourists and allowed the silence of the Basilica’s grandeur to penetrate my being. For an hour, the only sound I heard was that of the consecration bells, the heartbeat of the Church. AquinasAbroad provided me the opportunity to stand in the atrium of the Church, to feel His closeness, and to contemplate His directive to “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 19).

- Olivia

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.

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.
