    I enjoy being at Aquinas. The campus is so beautiful, all the older buildings and the work that went into them is breathtaking. In the Fall the campus is gorgeous, Aquinas is known for its trees and in the fall when the trees change colors the campus is breathtaking. There are so many different activities that you can be apart of and the people who are apart of the campus both the students and faculty make it a comfortable place to learn.

    In the summer the trees are changing to beautiful fall colors and in the winter the campus is gently covered in glistening snowfall. But, no matter what the campus is covered in smiles. The people here are very accepting and I've never felt out of place. The classrooms are small enough that it is easy to be close to people and make friends. I also highly reccomend living in the dorms because there are tons of activites to participate in year round. In the winter the snow is always shoveled and plowed before classes so you don't have to worry about your brisk morning walk to class being hectic. I have never been happier in my life than attending the Aquinas Campus.

    Campus is small and cozy. Everywhere you go, you feel like you know someone. I often have classes where I see at least one familiar face. The familiarization and comfort make Aquinas feel like home.

    Aquinas has an amazing campus. The land was owned by a former lumberjack many, many years ago, and his beautiful forest is still a wonderful sight, just on the outskirts of Grand Rapids. Being only one short bus ride from the city, I can go to the huge events, malls, and public library in addition to the tons of events that are hosted here right on campus! Many people believe that having such a small campus would be boring, but it's simply more concentrated!

    Aquinas is the perfect size for me. It's not like a big ten school where you see someone once and never see them again. Also, when you meet a friend in a class and want to study together; the campus isn't too spread out that you have to take a bus to meet up. Faces easily become familiar and friends are easy to make. The faculty and staff are what make the Aquinas community so genuine because the truely have interest in making your education more positive. Oh and one more thing, the landscaping and location is my favorite. I've lived in Grand Rapids my whole life and it's mainly highways, skyscrapers, roads and parking ramps have always been the same ol' same. However ever since I've been at Aquinas I realized we have our very own Central Park in GR! Which is here, home at Aquinas. This is the place where you can find every native Michgan tree, a million squirrels and alternative hiking trails through the forrests to go to class.
