Student Profile: Michael Gagnon

Reflecting upon his three years at Aquinas, Gagnon emphasized that faculty support has been a major positive influence. “The professors definitely give you the confidence to do whatever you want to do,” he said. “I’ve worked with a ton of faculty and staff here, trying to improve my projects. The confidence that they instill is a great thing, and something that I don’t think you’d find at other schools.” Thus encouraged, Gagnon decided to pursue an entrepreneurial business project. >Read More

Aquinas Professor Honored for Service to Underprivileged Children

Aquinas students are encouraged to see knowledge through the lens of the four Dominican charisms: prayer, study, community and service.

Her focus during this time has been in early childhood and general education. >Read More

Aquinas Hosts Peace and Reconciliation Seminar in Northern Ireland

Aquinas Hosts Peace and Reconciliation Seminar in Northern Ireland

The idea for the seminar and its location originated with Dr. Andrew Hill, a project administrator at Corrymeela familiar with Aquinas College and its program in Tully Cross, Ireland. "I felt it was appropriate that Aquinas College host this three-week seminar on the island of Ireland," said Dr. Pinheiro, "where the College’s longest running international program will celebrate its 40th year in 2013." This was the first time that the LFP Summer Seminar has been held outside the United States. The grant covered flight, room and board for each attendee. >Read More
