Aquinas College Women’s Connection is an inclusive community connecting women to support their life journeys by creating welcoming experiences for educational, spiritual, and social connections. We host a number of events each year as an outlet for these experiences to happen! Any local women, student women and friends of the college are encouraged to participate in our events, these opportunities are not exclusive to Aquinas alum.
