Aquinas College is a traditional 4-year private Catholic liberal arts institution located just two miles from downtown Grand Rapids on a 107-acre parcel of wooded property.
An inclusive educational community rooted in the Catholic and Dominican tradition, Aquinas College provides a liberal arts education with a global perspective. The college emphasizes career preparation focused on leadership and service to others, and fosters a commitment to lifelong learning dedicated to the pursuit of truth and the common good.
Aquinas offers more than 50 majors and 18 degrees. Eighty-percent of our students are traditional-age undergraduate students, 10% are undergraduates over 25 years of age, and another 10% are graduate students completing one of our three Master’s degree programs.
