4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Since Aquinas is such a small college, it often feels like its one of the safest places on earth. The campus is covered in trees, and they just work to kind of block out the rest of the world. Sometimes if there is a robbery near AQ we'll have a lockdown, but due to the safety measures there isn't a large threat. The area surrounding Aquinas seems to be perfectly safe during the day, but at night there are places that students just don't go and there is an unspoken rule about travelling in packs off campus. I always feel very safe on campus, and I'll walk by myself regardless of what time it is at night, which may not be the smartest. I haven't heard of anyone having trouble, but that doesn't mean there isn't potential for something bad to happen.

Overall Experience: School is kind of just school. A lot of whether or not you like a course or a professor will probably rely on how interested you are in the topic. Class sizes, professors, and class variety are all great. Every once in a while I've come across a professor or class that is just hard to work with, but its never anything that I can't handle. Basically education is just going to class and trying hard. If students don't put in the effort professors and advisers will try their best to help them, but at the college level you have to make yourself do the work.

Campus Housing: Just like with any other college, the reason students live on campus is for the experience. Dorms here are pretty typical of a small private college. There isn't a ton of room, the buildings are all about 60 years old, and its crazy expensive, but that's all part of why students do it. I couldn't imagine not having been on campus for my freshman year- I have friends who pulled it off but there is still a lot that they miss out on. Living on campus is beyond convenient; I think the longest walk I have to any class is 5 minutes tops. Not only is everything incredibly close here, but it makes it too easy to meet up with friends at any give time. I've gotten to the point where I feel guilty if I'm ever not doing something, because there's always someone I could go grab coffee, watch movies, workout, or even just sit and study with. When it comes to the halls, St. Joseph's is usually everyone's favorite. The social aspect is on a different level there, and everyone is very close. Regina isn't bad either, but it is a bit quieter and it takes students a little while longer to meet each other too. Hruby is typically for sohpomores, but the freshmen who live there usually like having their own room but hate how secluded it is from everyone else.

Athletics: It seems that at Aquinas a large percentage of the student population participates in some sport, after all it is a private college and athletic scholarships make a huge difference for tuition. That being said, I don't participate in athletics and it hasn't made a huge difference. For the athletes themselves, a large portion of their social aspect is defined by their team; they eat, practice, workout, and play together. There isn't a huge amount of fan support for the teams, but those who do attend games are typically the same people every time. Sporting events are a great way to spend time with friends and give a little love back to the school and its students. Aquinas tends to feel like one tight-knit community, and athletics are definitely one aspect that pulls it closer together.

Overall Experience: Aquinas College is in the best sense my new home away from home. I chose to go here last minute, and only because it was the easiest option available. My hometown is about 30 minutes away from campus, and I had desperately wanted to move far away for college, potentially even out of state. Even though my attendance at AQ sort of fell into place and was never a conscious decision, I am forever thankful that it worked out this way. In all honesty, I hated the first few months that I was here. I live on campus, and even though I have friends from high school attending college here too, I always felt alone and out of place. That seems to be a common theme for many people no matter what college they go to though; the initial transition is generally going to be pretty rough. With time I met better friends who I genuinely like and appreciate, and classes became more routine and less stressful. Aquinas is one of those schools where either you love it or you hate it, and I have an even greater appreciation for the life I've made here thanks to the fact that I've experienced both ends of the spectrum.

Overall Experience: I have one specific professor who has always helped me figure out what to do when it comes to work and anything similar to that, she helps me figure out what classes to take as well as what career program would be best to declare. What major would lead me to my goal of becoming an interperter in Spanish, English and ASL, and working with kids who struggle with dissabilities.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but from what I have seen from classmates who do live on campus it is way to expensive for the amount of space there is and signal as well as everything else. Due to how old the buildings are it makes me think that is why it can be very pricey.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Its there but I wouldn't say its very common, in order even start a so called sorority or fraternity the group has to have a mission that they will show that year and the service they will do together.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Being a small school I hear about sports hear and there but I wouldn't say it is something super important. I hear more about service trips then sports at Aquinas College. The athletic facilities are very nice as well as new.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school I chose is great in size. Although I commute so it makes it very difficult to fit in and to make myself feel a part of the school. I didn't research much about the school and I wish I would have. I wish I would have known that it isn't very diverse. I like the class size and how the professors treat their students. I love that it is a small campus and has a very historic background to it. I would like to aim for becoming an interperter in Spanish and ASL and it can be a bit overwhelming to know that Aquinas College does not offer ASL.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When I got sick I was able to get help right away, which was very nice. I worry about some of the safety here I was left outside during a lock down and there were people shooting right across the street I also asked for a ride back to campus because it was late and it was me and a few other friends all girls and they told us they wouldn't come get us.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like I should have gone to a different school. I also feel like I am throwing away a lot of money.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know a lot of people get jobs after going here and I would like to be able to hear more from them on their experience here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is what you would expect, everyone wants to get off campus as soon as possible.

Campus Housing: I can't wait to live in the apartments or houses. The dorms are too congested for me.

Athletics: I run Women's Cross Country and Track and Field. Our athletic facility is amazing and really helps in our training. We have top notch athletics in some sports, but others are mediocre.
