Campus Safety Wins Second Place in TOGETHER FOR SAFER SCHOOLS Grant Program

We are excited to announce that Aquinas finished second in our category for the Stanley Security “Together for Safer Schools” grant program. For its second place finish, the College will receive $25,000 in Stanley Security products to help us keep the Aquinas campus secure. We would like to thank all of the students, faculty, staff and alumni who participated. It is because of your willingness to support AQ by voting often, and encouraging your friends and families to vote, that we were able to hold our own against the 40 other schools in our category, some of which were three times our size. It is the support of the Aquinas Community and our friends and family that made this grant possible! >Read More
