“Thomas Aquinas College’s best asset is its ability to make faith part of everything. It permeates the social life and the academic life.”

“I am deeply touched by the quality of the intellectual and spiritual formation that you offer. The study of philosophy should lead to a conviction that truth can be known, articulated, and defended. Your college shows that this is possible, and on a high level!”

– Rev. Wojciech Giertych, O.P.
