Get involved with any clubs you are interested in, this will really help you enjoy your experience.

Use the faculty and staff, they are here for you and are easily available with offices on campus. Get involved in a club, get a campus job or join an intermueral sport so that you stayed involved and become an active member to the Aquinas community. Stay active and take advantage of the Fitness Center. Your body is important to maintain in order to keep a good balance of school and health.
Alyssa from Grand Rapids, MI
Aquinas is an amazing school to be apart of. Don't be afraid to go to your professors and ask for help, they are your friends and they want to see you succeed so they will do what they can in order to help you. Participation is key, professors like to see you get involved and be passionate about the things they are lecturing on. Aquinas has many great programs and the small class size is ideal for establishing relationships with your professors and for ensuring your comfortable with what you have learned
Tessa from Hudsonville, MI
OK. I know that most prospective students are nervous about the tuition. But, I'm honestly saying that I come from a family that is tight with money. Do not let it scare you or hold you back. There are loans and scholarships (like the ones on Cappex.com) that are here to help you pay for your education. Never let money hold you back from the education you deserve. There are ways to pay. I will say that you can trust in AQ College to accurately prepare you for your future. And lastly, you can do anything you put your mind to.
Molly from Marine City, MI
It is not a strong Catholic school, and fairly free thinking for a religious school.

Tip 1 - Live on Campus, make friendships.
Tip 2 - Seek out scholarships.
Michael from Holland, MI
Don't let the religious affliation scare you off! Aquinas is a very open-minded college and we encourage individualism. This college is great because of its size and you feel that home-like connection.
Abigale from Manistee, MI
Do the research to make sure a small, liberal arts college is for you. While this type of environment works for many, others do not find a smaller school appealing.
