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.

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.

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.
