From Aquinas College - Michigan

Aquinas College is a comprehensive liberal arts college located in the top tourist destination of the Midwest, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Founded by the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids, our mission calls for an inclusive environment that is focused around career outcomes.

Recognized as being a "friendly and welcoming" institution, we live out our Dominican heritage in pursuit of the common good. Aquinas has a strong history of providing a high value education that is both affordable and distinctive. Our generous aid packages provide 100% of first-year students with some form of aid and 96% of our graduates are in jobs or graduate programs.

With over 60 majors, students can explore and expand their education through an array of multidisciplinary majors such as community leadership, translation and interpretation, and theatre for social change. We understand the importance of preparing students to be passionate and global achievers - an intersection of both passion and purpose.
