Our Vision

Aquinas College is recognized as the exceptional Catholic liberal arts college that prepares individuals for careers of leadership and service in developing a sustainable and just global community.

Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts education is comprehensive education, designed to develop students who thrive in all dimensions of life. At Aquinas, while students receive career preparation in specific disciplines, the goal is to be fit for everything. An education for the whole person that is best for all of life, not just the 9-5 workday, but preparing you for an ever-changing world.

What can it do for me?

  • The freedom of a liberal arts education includes spiritual freedom and promotes ways of thinking and living that enable students to realize God’s purpose for them in life.
  • By focusing on the whole person, students gain an understanding of how to fill important roles in their free time, for example by being a good friend, church member, spouse, or a positive contributor to the community.
  • In acquiring a broad, foundational education, students are prepared for a wide range of career options throughout life.
  • With a smaller size and smaller student/professor ratio than larger universities, you’ll receive more personalized attention, be more likely to be referred to internships and jobs and learn to foster deeper relationships.

outcome There are many things to be proud of at Aquinas. Recognized nationally, and awarded for our strong academic programs, athletics, success in sustainability and service efforts, and above all the outcomes of our students.
