3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is helpful. Teachers will helpnyoubeoth anything and the students are always willing to help you out also.

Overall Experience: If you are a biology major, RUN!!! Don't walk. The professors make the courses purposely hard. I studied so much more at AQ then I did attending Michigan State. I got much better grades at State. Biology professors only look out for the students that have parents that are doctors, educators, and engineers. The favorites get special treatment, the laboratory technician jobs. The don't care about you as a person.

I understand that it is a higher learning environment, but if you need a job do not go here. Whereas if you are apart of some kind of sport they bend over backwards for you. Also if your parents are blue collar workers consider yourself as a space filler.

Don't get me started on adviser! Basically mine is the biggest D*** ever! I had to schedule my advising appointments around his availability and he didn't put his advising appointment sign up sheet until the week of advising!

I have never lived on campus and to be honest the dorms look disgusting. Campus is near a shoddy part of the city and you never see any campus safety. There is not near enough light to make you feel safe if you have a night class and need to walk back to you car. The food from the dinning hall smells horrible. Every year the cost for attendance has risen, so if you have to pay for school yourself good luck!

Also the classroom equipment was most likely new in the 1970's (GRCC has much better lab equipment then us). In the science building there is no air conditioning, some of the laboratory electrical outlets do not work, and even the burners.

So long story short- if you want a updated class rooms and updated equipment don't attend here. If you want bias professors do attend.

AQ has really nice grounds around the campus, but is it really worth almost $40,000?

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Our professors are caring and help students to the best of their ability to help them succeed. Something I did not experience when I took a summer class at Grand Rapids Community College this summer. Aquinas College professors are wonderful.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This accredited school is held with a very high respect when employers are looking at a degree From Aquinas. Jobs/Interviews love to see a degree from Aquinas, as well as a department on campus dedicated to finding internships for Aquinas Students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: When the college is in a sketchy area of Grand Rapids, the school can only do so much. I believe that with the area that we have the school, Our campus is extremely safe. The many lock-downs we have had I believe are due to the area, and are handled wonderful.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I believe that living on campus is a wonderful experience. Not only do you get to stay with the community for long periods of time with this added feature, but you get to live with your friends and classmates, creating bigger bonds of friendship.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our Athletics are good! Not the part that our school is known for, but still a good part of campus!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would choose this school again in a heartbeat! Everyone knows each other, and everyone is very nice and friendly to each other. It is like one big family, Teachers and Staff included.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, the courses are HARD. This is one of the toughest schools in the state. However, the professors are so willing to help a student out, I've even met one professor off campus at a nearby coffee shop to go over an essay.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone I've talked to who is an alumni to AQ has gotten a job, and the school is very willing to help you find a internship.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus safety office may be small and old, but the people who run it are the best. They will get you on parking tickets frequently, but are always there if you need help. They will even walk you back from the library if you don't feel safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Aquinas is an old college, and the dorms prove just that. While there are apartments on campus, good luck getting into one of them. The regular dorms are crappy, don't have much or anything I'd consider a "perk."

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They seem pretty important to the college, I however am not involved besides sitting though a few games when my busy schedule allows.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could do everything again, I would definitely consider looking at bigger colleges. While Aquinas is a private, small college, it does seem like they don't care much for the students. Rather than fixing up very old dorm rooms, the college is putting in new buildings such as a chapel. The food is not the best, and thats saying it nicely. The professors do care about students, and will try to help you as much as possible. The atmosphere is overall friendly.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are lots of interesting less known sports at Aquinas, like womens hockey and bowling, but the school only seems to focus on boys LAX and soccer.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the campus. But it is not always easy to get help when you need it, for example getting into the classes you need. The advisors pretty much tell you that its up to you to get into the class.

3 College Junior

Diversity: It definitely could be better, but has been getting better over the years

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: For the most part, campus is relatively safe, Campus safety overall does good job

4 College Junior

Athletics: Most athletic teams are fairly competitive, school rallies behind and supports most of them

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Do not regret coming to this school at all, ended up being one of the best choices of my life

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is adequate, it is what you would expect, some of the buildings are out of date, but some are new and modern. It is a good mix, there are options for students who want to live on campus for all of their undergraduate career.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy Aquinas, I'm truly glad they renovated and rejuvenated the economics department or I would have transferred. I love that any student can find their niche and there is a club/department for almost every interest.

Athletics: I think that we should probably have more student involvement at games and what not, but we definitely are encouraged to attend events.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like the academic side of Aquinas is great. However, I think that the cost to live in the dorms is way too high and I dislike how difficult it is to get exempt off campus even if you live somewhat close to school.
