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

- Mary F.

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

- Gregory S.

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.

"It is awesome that Aquinas is in Nashville."

- Mary F.

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'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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

- Scott A.

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

- 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.

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

- Ana T.
