    Club AQ Overnight Stay

Out of an abundance of caution, we are temporarily suspending all Club AQ overnight visit programs. Although no members of the Aquinas community have been diagnosed with Coronavirus (COVID-19), this proactive measure is being taken to protect both our current and future Saints. To inquire about other opportunities to experience classes at Aquinas, please contact the Admissions Office at 616-632-2900 and ask to speak with an Admissions Representative.

If you would like to spend the night on campus in one of our residence halls with one of our Student Ambassadors during the regular academic year, come to Club AQ, our admitted student overnight program!

Club AQ is designed for seniors to see what it's like to be an Aquinas student. You'll have the opportunity to have dinner out on the town in downtown Grand Rapids, participate in campus activities, experience residence life and explore academic options. Club AQ will give you the best feel for what college life at Aquinas is actually like and will help you make your final college decision.

Club AQ Participants last year raved about their visit.

  • "I love the campus! It's gorgeous and everyone here is so sweet and friendly. I love how there's always something fun to do!"
  • "Overall this was an amazing experience! Club AQ definitely made me want to be a student at Aquinas even more!"
  • "This visit was a wonderful experience and my host, along with many others, were so helpful and friendly!"
  • "Club AQ was a great experience! I cannot wait to start school in August!"
