HAS A PLACE
Diversity and inclusion aren’t just buzzwords at Aquinas, they’re fundamental to our educational mission. We believe that many voices lead to more comprehensive discussions.
From our residence halls to an abundance of additional on-campus living options, you have access to enjoy nearby dining, entertainment and all the city has to offer—or just relax in one of the hammocks located on our grounds. Walk, or ride one of our available campus bicycles—the choice is yours. Your lifestyle is up to you.
At Aquinas, you have the opportunity to excel both in and out of the classroom. From top-notch athletics to an array of clubs and student organizations, there are extracurricular activities for everyone. You can try something new to broaden your proficiencies, interact in our diverse community and build experiences that will shape your worldview.
