Aquinas is an amazing, liberal arts college that provides an excellent education. Here, we are able to connect with Professors instead of them not knowing any of our names. Aquinas is a place full of many opportunities and experiences that provide each and every student with the ability to grow and expand as intellectual human beings.
It is great here! Everyone is nice, and everyone knows each other. The classes are more personal.
The facilities and food aren't anything to write home about, just typical dorms and food - unless you're an upperclassmen and can land a spot in the newer on campus apartments. The small class sizes and campus however, make for a community where you always see people you know on your way to class and professors truly care about the students.
Please, I beg you if you are reading this do not even consider coming to Aquinas. What Aquinas does not tell you is that there is only about a 50% retention rate of all freshman. This is not because the academics are hard, it is because 90% of students live 40 mins or closer. It is high school part 2. The academics are pathetic, the classes are a joke. Graduating with a degree means nothing, because nothing was learned in the 4 years that were wasted here. To top this off the food is not edible, it has given food poising to most of the population. If you are looking for an incredibly expensive community college. This is perfect for you. The moment the weekend starts either every single person leaves, or by 5 o'clock you are already to drunk to drive home.

The advice I would give my high school self is to take more chances. Put yourself out there and don’t be afraid to be unique. Your uniqueness is what people like about you. Also, don’t be afraid to take risks. Ask the guy you like out or to a dance. Join more than just one or two clubs, get involved with your school. Take more classes that give you college credit, because college is expensive. Also, Challenge yourself. Without challenging yourself there is no way you could ever be prepared for college because college challenges you every day and without practice you are sure to fall behind in some of your more challenging classes. College is a lot like high school in the way that the people act the same but the classes are different and provide more of a challenge so when you study your senior year, study as if you were already in college. Then you'll be more prepared than your fellow classmates in just about everything.
Aquinas as a campus is beautiful. I have found or seen very few campuses that provide gorgeous wooded walks and quaint homes near the campus. Plus, Aquinas is located in one of the best up-and-coming cities in Michigan, maybe even the United States: Grand Rapids! It is located in East Grand Rapids, a very artsy district (so if you don't get enough art at Aquinas, which there is not much of, head over there!)
Classmates are very helpful and friendly.
Small classes, teachers are easily assesable and willing to help and everyone here is super friendly
Sometimes I wish there were more people. But we are all there, we're just studying or in rehearsals or sports or something.
Aquinas is very open to everyone of all races, religious preferences, and sexual orientation; allowing people to fit in and find a place where they feel safe and comfortable at.
So one who is into the big school thing.
When I tell my friends about Aquinas College, I typically tell them how lucky I was to be able to attend a small school that reminded me of my small hometown and run track and cross country for them. I brag about my small class sizes and personal attention I get from professors, and I tell them that it's only a five minute walk from one end of campus to the other. I also tell them about the wonderful roommate I was paired up with at the begining of freshman year and how we'll be friends forever.
i wish i would have known about the programs a little more.
The worst thing about Aquinas is that we are going through many changes. Our fieldhouse is currently under construction so that makes it more difficult for athletes to train. Our student population is increasing greatly so it has become harder for our college to fit everything the students want and need to be successful.
Being a liberal arts college and bing succluded in a busy city
They are difficult but they are not too difficult to pass. Passing is possible with just a little effort. I look forward to the challenge each and everyday.
I love the school
