            My years of study in the MM program at Aquinas have served me well.

            I found it to be an excellent program that focused on the people side of leadership and business. I was able to have a full time career, a growing family, and advance my career going to school nights and on Saturday. The academic staff their brought real life experience and research into the classroom, which allowed me to walk out with information I could use both the next day at work as well as years later in my career.

            Versatile Program, Excellent Education

            My Aquinas experience afforded me the ability to work a full time job and attend school in the evenings, and complete my Bachelors as a standard 4 year program. The instructors I experienced exuded passion for their respective courses, and were willing to meet with me at times that worked with my schedule when needed. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and Grand Rapids is a growing city that features a small town and big town feel, both at the same time. I would highly recommend Aquinas College, and after you Graduate, you will too.

            Mind Broadening!!!

            My educational experience at Aquinas College went way beyond my expectations! I can say that my education was a valuable part of my life, and I am so happy that I decided on an education from Aquinas. The class requirements went beyond what most colleges demand. Being a business major, I was also required to take science classes, philosophy, history, and classes in the arts and music. The senior requirement of the Sacred and the Profane was mind broadening, and I was pleased to learn about perceptions and values of others regarding our society and how it can impact my day to day life. Because of my education at Aquinas, I am much more diverse and accepting of those perceptions and values. I highly recommend Aquinas college as a place that not only cares about the educational process, but how it is processed and valued by each individual student. They go well beyond the idea that we are here for profit only. They bring back respect for being human.
