Two New Facilities to Open on Campus, Fall 2014

The Alksnis Athletics and Recreation Building will provide nearly 70,000 square feet of new space for the Aquinas College community. It will offer a great venue for our students to play, practice and compete. The new facility will not only offer a 200 meter track with all of the amenities for track and field events, but also additional wooden floor courts for basketball, volleyball, cheerleading and dance. Practice areas for baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, golf and intramurals will also be available. An extensive curtaining system will allow for multiple uses simultaneously. >Construction Progress


Apartment E is a new residence facility for students. Due to an increased demand by upperclass students to live on campus, the Aquinas College Board of Trustees approved the expansion of campus housing. Construction on the new apartment building began in early December and will be completed in time for next academic year (Fall 2014). Currently being referred to as Apartment E, this new building will be modeled after AQ's most popular and LEED certified living space, Apartment D, and will overlook the College's athletic field. Apartment E will be approximately 29,176 square feet and will accommodate 64 residents who are at upperclass status. >Construction Progress

Aquinas Students Spend Spring Break Doing Service Around the World
Service Learning

Service-Learning engages students in civic responsibility, critical thinking, and structured reflection by actively involving them in organized community service. This, in turn, prepares students for a lifetime of personal growth and social responsibility.

 

Trips this spring include: Dominican Republic, Christian Appalachian project (Kentucky), Nicaragua, Jerusalem Farm (Missouri) and Alabama. AQ Service-Learning trips allow students to put their faith into action and practice the Dominican charisms of prayer, study, community and service. >Read More
