An Aquinas education is not just all about the individual – it is about the community.

- Augusta K.

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.

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

- Gregory S.

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

- Ana T.

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.

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.

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

- Mary F.

You go to house lunches and it's not just students, it's faculty and administrators eating together, so you get to know them on a personal level. It's like a family dinner.

- 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.

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

- Troy B.

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.

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.

In my country, when someone smiles or says hi and you don't know them, it is weird because they only greet you if it is family. So here when strangers do it they are trying to be nice, they are not trying to get anything from you. The South is friendly and I am adjusting to it.

- Mary-Frances N.

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.

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.

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

- Ana T.

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

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.

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.

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

- Scott A.

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.

"It is awesome that Aquinas is in Nashville."

- Mary F.

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
