Aquinas really took my strengths as a high school student into account and gave me excellent scholarships that they thought I deserved!

When you are over 18 there are many places to go and have fun, since Grand Rapids has a lot of colleges, there are many bars and clubs that have college nights.
College Freshman 2013-11-18T18:42:24Z
I love the Grand Rapids area, it's absolutely beautiful and I love that I have chosen here to plant my roots!

We don't have many different ethnicities on campus, but for those that are, we make them feel as welcome as possible!

The drug scene is only smoking and drinking. I'm sure other things go on but from what I can smell there is just weed.

We do not have a Greek life on Campus. I cannot have an opinion on Greek life when I have no experience with it.

There is absolutely NO where to park. Everyone seems to have a car, so if you're from out of state it's ridiculous. On top of all this, the cost for a permit increased from $50 for the entire year to $100 the first semester and $150 for the second semester - NOT OKAY! It puts me at an inconvenience and now Is forcing me to park off campus, and I'm from out of state

The library has computers for general use on the first two floors, but each floor has at least computer to look up books and articles. There are always open computers. The computers are extremely slow. It's best to bring you're own laptop and plug it in to one of the outlets on the tables. unless you want to print something then it's easier to use one of the computers provided by the college.

There's public transportation that you can take to most of the places you want to go. You can even take it to Allendale or Big Rapids to see your friends at GVSU or Ferris. The buses have specific hours and the hours for certain routes change on some days so don't expect to get a ride back to campus from downtown at 2am. Campus safety provides escorts around campus and within a 1 mile radius of campus at night.

I haven't had an internship yet but I'm hoping to have one at one point. If I were to talk with the career center, I'm sure they could help me find one and apply for it

When you live on campus, parking is very competitive. Meaning which parking lot you are allowed to park in. And if your a commuter, then you have a designated lot. This year, parking permits have become more expensive and the number of parking spaces have diminished.

The past few years, Wege hasn't been the greatest. There wasn't much to choose from and the food always looked awful. I now live off campus and I've heard that AQ has hired a new chef and the food is actually good.

The Psychology program is very popular at Aquinas but the problem is that the main focus is only on research in Psychology. There needs to be more opportunities for other areas of Psychology. For example, I'm going into counseling and that is more of a hands on field, I wish they could offer a few more classes related to that area. The only other downside is that classes are somewhat difficult to get into unless your a senior.

There are not a lot of parking spots. Often times students must park on the opposite side of campus from where they live and cannot easily get a new parking spot if they move from one semester to the next. There is very little visitor parking and people who are just staying for a couple of minutes do not want to fill out the guest parking app and paying the fee.

Computers work well, can be slow sometimes and have useful programs. They usually take a while to log you in and there are not many in the library, so sometimes you have to wait to use one.

The student population at Aquinas College is roughly two-thirds female and one-third male. The overwhelming majority of students are white, presenting a noticeable contrast to the surrounding community, which has a much higher percentage of black people than the college. Other minority races at the college are even less common, but are still present.

very good parking. small school so parking is open.

Sustainable Business is a wonderful program and Aquinas College is the only school in the country that currently offers it. The program takes ethical and sustainable values and does not just apply them to business, but uses them to recreate business in order to make it good for the employers, employees, the environment, and consumers. It is a challenging and difficult program; students typically struggle with two of the three areas of study, but success is definitely possible and a degree in the subject really pays off.

Drug use seems to be about average when compared to other schools. The widespread nature of it is concealed fairly well by students who us. Alcohol consumption is more common than drug use, but typically does not happen on campus. Peer pressure isn't very high for either factor and the school's policies are strictly enforced whenever someone is caught in either case.

There are a lot of really good scholarships at Aquinas, however I feel that there could be more scholarships offered for non-music degree students.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T17:57:16Z
In my freshman year I was so busy I didn't really get a chance to be as big of a part of campus life as I wanted, but from what I know our facilities are very nice and are all pretty close so it isn't a hassle to get anywhere.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T17:54:56Z
The professors are very passionate about what they do, I haven't met one yet who just seemed to be here because it just "their job". The work load is a little heavier than high school, which is a given, but it isn't so bad to the point where we cannot handle it. Popular study areas are by the ponds on nice days, or in the moose cafe.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T17:49:29Z
Campus housing is really nice. The rooms are upkept and it's fun having such a small campus because you can easily walk to a friends dorm or apartment in 5 minutes or less.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T17:48:23Z
Transportation at school is pretty good. There are bus stops right outside of campus that are no more than a 5 minute walk from classes. I think it is free for AQ students to ride the bus which is helpful, not to me, but maybe for others.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T17:46:18Z
There are a lot of great science professors at Aquinas. We do indoor labs, but also outdoor labs. It's nice to switch it up once in awhile. Every teacher is passionate about their subject and it makes it more fun to learn as a student.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
