On April 17, 2013, representatives of Thomas Aquinas College and the Fritz B. Burns Foundation broke ground on the College’s next building, St. Gladys Hall.

Designed to facilitate the small, seminar discussions that are at the heart of the College’s unique academic program, St. Gladys Hall is made possible through a $3.2 million grant from the Fritz B. Burns Foundation of Los Angeles. The building, the thirteenth constructed since the College acquired its campus in the 1970s, will be complete in time for the start of the 2014-5 academic year. St. Gladys Hall will house eight classrooms, replacing the modular St. Patrick’s Hall, along a new arcade perpendicular to Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel.
