Project Unite: Love Where You Live


2014 is the 21st anniversary of Project Unite! We are proud to present an annual Aquinas College Tradition! Project Unite: Love Where You Live is based on the Dominican charisms of service and community. During Project Unite new students, orientation leaders, faculty and staff provide assistance to various local organizations. We have done everything from interact and visit with residents of the nearby Clark Retirement Community to decorating bags for the Kids Food Basket. Project Unite is great tradition that celebrates Saints doing service - a value here at Aquinas.


The keynote speaker for Project Unite 2014 is AQ alumna Emily Ferstle '10 (pictured at right).
