The dorms are great at Aquinas! It's a fun way to meet new people and most people are considerate of the noise level and time of day. My campus is small so the convenience of living on campus in the dorms is great. The walk to class is only a few minutes. Also, the residence life staff is very helpful with the housing process and make it simple to reapply for housing each year. We just fill out a packet with our roommates and get to select where we want to live!

Aquinas Is the School for Me and My Specific Major. Our Mission Statement Explains It All, GO SAINTS! My specific major is just that, its completely specific to me. I enjoy what I do very much. The course work and professors are tough but it wouldn't be worth doing otherwise. My program is not a popular one but I love it. I enjoy learning what my field has to offer. My workload is not easy but I manage well. The curriculum is diverse in topics yet specific to my individual needs. The entire campus here is beautiful, I love the peace ant tranquility of the entire campus. Even flow.

Aquinas is definitely a wonderful place to be able to study. It's a small campus, and you know most of your graduating class within the first year! I believe this makes for a great community. If you want a little adventure, downtown Grand Rapids is just in the backyard. But if you prefer to stay on campus and study, there are plenty of quiet spots to choose from. I like to grab a coffee from the on-campus cafe- the Moose- and settle down on the lawn. Weather permitting, that is!
