Aquinas College - Michigan Reviews

The professors care about you and help you when you have questions! The campus is located near the city, but you feel like you are in your own village in the woods and don't realize the city is so close. The only downfall at the college is the food and the dorms. The wifi used to be an issue, but it is currently being updated and is a lot better. There are so many different things to do on campus and many things to do off campus. Grand Rapids is only a short walk away. Even though the campus isn't as big as some university's, you are always meeting new people and good friends. The sport teams at Aquinas are very good and a lot of fun to watch. While I have been at school there have been a lot of varsity teams that have made it to nationals. If you are looking to be a well rounded individual aquinas provides that for you because it is a Liberal arts college.

I've only been here for 3 weeks, but it's been great overall! The teachers are friendly, it's easy going, and it's much more fun than high school! The only reason for 4 star is because the food isnt great and neither are the dorms.
Both the students and staff here are very helpful and will jump at any opportunity to help you. This made me feel very loved and important. I'm a fan of smaller schools- which is why I wanted to come here! It's close to my house and it's a small school that's perfect for me. I'm also a fan of their Track and Field program and I know a few people that are on the team. Overall Aquinas College, is exactly what I was looking for and I will never have anything bad to say about this university.
