Letter from the Athletics Director

Dear Friend of Aquinas College Athletics,
Terry Bocian


This site introduces you to the Saints Club; our all-inclusive boosters' club created to support our program and its student-athletes.  By designating a gift to the SPORT OF YOUR CHOICE, your involvement can help any of our 25 intercollegiate sports.

We are extremely proud of our programs and the traditions that have been formed through the years.  Each year we continue to build on the past with the enthusiasm and efforts of our current Saints.  As we look to the future, our vision includes improvements and enhancement of our facilities, our programs, and the experiences of our student-athletes.
Your membership in the Saints Club allows you to help current and future participants compete in a quality program and experience the many positive aspects of small-college competitive athletics.  At the same time, it allows the athletic department to communicate with you in regard to current schedules, social events, and other athletic happenings.
Thanks for your support.  Remember - it's great to be a Saint!
Gratefully yours,
Terry Bocian
Director of Athletics
