ELECTION 2012
College Urges Prayer for Nation;
Takes Stand for Religious Liberty


Thomas Aquinas College President Michael F. McLean and Dean Brian T. Kelly ask that members of the College community join with students, faculty, and staff in praying through November 6 for “the conversion of our country and a very happy outcome to the elections.” Additionally they have asked that priests who are alumni or friends of the College keep this intention in mind when offering Mass. Meanwhile, the College has joined a consortium of 15 Catholic colleges and universities in filing an amicus brief in support of two lawsuits against the HHS Mandate.

HONOR ROLL
College Gets Top Marks for Academics, Catholic Identity, and Value

The American Council of College Trustees and Alumni has released its third annual report on the curricular strength of American colleges and universities, and once again, Thomas Aquinas College is at the very top of the list. On ACTA’s “What Will They Learn?” website, the College is among the top 2 percent to receive an “A” grade, and one of only three schools in the country to receive a perfect score.

In other college-guide news, the latest edition of The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College declares that the College “stands alone as the only Catholic college that exclusively teaches from the Great Books, with an impressive intellectual rigor that is matched by a commitment to orthodox Catholicism.”

Finally, Kiplinger has ranked Thomas Aquinas College on its list of the Top 10 Best Values in Private Colleges Under $20K (net cost, including financial aid). It is the only Catholic institution in the United States to have made the list, which is based on academic excellence, freshman retention rate, graduation rate, and cost.

PRO-LIFE HERO
Remembering Andrew Moore (’14)

Members of the Thomas Aquinas College community joined the parents and siblings of Andrew “Kent” Moore (’14) for a memorial Mass in Our Lady of Most Holy Trinity Chapel on October 15. A tireless advocate of unborn children and their mothers, Kent was struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle this summer while participating in a Crossroads pro-life walk across America.

“The untimely death of a promising young man such as Andrew Moore always touches a deep part of our hearts,” writes Judy Barrett, a dear friend and longtime benefactor of the College, in a thoughtful post on the California Catholic Conference blog. “But there is more to this profoundly inspiring story …”
