Thomas Aquinas College is an institution dedicated to producing better people through education. Everything about it is oriented to the Truth, Beauty, and Goodness-- who Catholics call Christ. The gorgeous campus in Southern California, wholesome culture rich with Catholic morality, and involved Great Books education can't but help form students into people who are more intelligent, more virtuous, and more happy. The education, while of the original texts of ancient and modern geniuses who shaped Western understanding, proves itself to be practical, time after time granting grads respectable careers including but not limited to law, medicine, business, and teaching. If anyone is interested in reading the most important and influential works ever written, and acquiring the tools to unravel them, in addition to meeting the best people in college, come to TAC.

It is wonderful unique program, and campus community! The whole curriculum is well designed, and there is a lot of support for students both from faculty, as well as other students, past and present.
Five stars for the education at this school. If you can sit through the major BS from various rules and practices. Then when you're 80, you'll be able to enjoy thinking about mankind's greatest problems and hopefully keel over soon. Hence, no stars for any other aspects besides education because they really believe in suffering before achieving any reward. Suffering and misery is what this program offers in addition to a liberal arts degree. And oh, have fun trying to get a real job. The last I heard from that 80 year old, he lives off the government because he's too lazy 'living the life of leisure,' and hasn't been able to find work due to his inability to socialize on any normal level.
