Aquinas College, an inclusive educational community rooted in the Catholic and Dominican tradition, provides a liberal arts education with a global perspective, emphasizes career preparation focused on leadership and service to others, and fosters a commitment to lifelong learning dedicated to the pursuit of truth and the common good.
Aquinas students receive a four year liberal arts education with over 100 majors and minors, which prepares them for employment, lifelong learning, and critical thinking. Students make real the vision of the college: Aquinas College is an exceptional Catholic liberal arts college that prepares individuals for careers of leadership and service in developing a sustainable and just global community.
Your college experience isn’t just about what you learn in a classroom. At Aquinas College, we believe it’s just as important to learn on-campus, in the community and around the world. From one of our many registered student organizations, to Campus Life events, to the Center for Diversity & Inclusion, there’s something for everyone at AQ.
Aquinas College is proud to offer a hands-on approach to learning that extends far outside the classroom. From the Library, to the Writing Center, to Counseling, Health & Wellness, our staff are here to help.
