AQ Alumni Association

Mission & Purpose
The mission of the Aquinas College Alumni Association is to help the College promote its position as one of the region's most distinguished Colleges, and bring Aquinas alumni closer to the College and each other.
The Alumni Association supports academic growth and facilities development. We strive to promote greater awareness of the College. We foster lifetime involvement among the alumni, encourage faculty and students in the pursuit of excellence, and offer spiritual and social opportunities to further individual growth and community spirit.
In other words, the Association wants to support our alumni and in turn seek alumni support of the College. How can we serve you better? Drop us a line at and let us know what events, services, or opportunities YOU would like to see.
Current Needs
We have some positions we need to fill! We are currently looking for a Secretary and Campus Presence Coordinator If you would like more information on any of these positions, please email

New Location for Alumni Bricks
Shrine to Mary

Bricks are no longer available for purchase. Please consider a donation to another great AQ cause!

Due to weather, nature, and AQ becoming more wheelchair accessible, it was determined that the walkways that previously held the Alumni bricks needed to be replaced. The cost and time to save each brick were high and therefore, they were not salvaged.


However, each brick will be replaced at no cost to the original donor. Letters will go out explaining the move. New bricks will be located at the Shrine to Mary by Homecoming 2011. Donors will also have the opportunity to update the brick if they have since married or received a Master's degree from AQ.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at or (616) 632-2494. 


Thank you for your understanding!

-Brigid Avery, Director of Alumni Relations
