    Center for Opportunities, Resources, and Excellence

Center for Opportunities, Resources, and Excellence (CORE) is committed to the persistence, performance, and graduation of every Aquinas student. We offer many resources and services free of charge to all Aquinas College students. Services we provide include peer tutoring, academic study tables, writing consultations and peer coaching. CORE works to ensure equal access for students to explore cultural opportunities, utilize campus and community resources, and achieve academic excellence.
