Campus Life

Campus Life addresses the spiritual and cultural part of the Aquinas community. More than a club or a group, it’s the way every student and adult at Aquinas is invited to live the Catholic Christian life and the values that strengthen that. Campus Life is reflected in the very core of our school's mission, formed by the values of the Basilian Fathers and the Sisters of St. Joseph:

 “…to teach ALL students goodness, discipline, and knowledge, supported through gospel values, within a comprehensive curricular and co-curricular program…”

Our Belief Statement calls us to educate the whole student and in doing so create a culture that builds a strong foundation for students to reach the goals set forth in the Profile of an Aquinas Graduate. Campus Life goes beyond this, striving to serve each person - students, families, faculty and staff - without making any distinctions and with the intent to unite persons to one another and all with God through myriad events and activities and the promotion of leadership skills and expression.
