So far my time spent at Saint Thomas Aquinas College has been great. They have so much to offer, from Sports, clubs, academic help, a plethora of majors Including mine the not so well known Therapeutic Recreation. Wonderful personable professors, online courses, on campus food options, lots of convenient parking, and a safe environment. Some areas of the school are a little outdated, but my biggest issue is how some of the staff (business office, financial aide, sports coordinators, don't communicate very well, are rarely available, and don't seem to enjoy there job. Small area of complaints but overall a wonderful school to earn a degree. Im excited and proud to be a student and excited to graduate.

It's been great, the professors and staff have been extremely helpful! My advisor helped me figure out what I truly wanted to do as a career.
LOVE the professors! Haven’t had a professor I dislike yet. Each class is informative and the perfect small size. The campus itself is boring though they do try to make it fun I’ll give them that. The cafe hours are purely awful for student athletes away at games. And the food isn’t the best anyway. I spent way to much money eating out even with the meal plan :/
