Fun Facts

  • Though Aquinas College's Brink Hall was originally a winery, these days, the only drinking inside occurs on stage, as it's home to the school's theater program and offices.
  • He's big, he's tough, he drools: he's Nelson, the Saint Bernard mascot at Aquinas College!
  • Catholic colleges and universities in the United States didn't go co-ed until Aquinas College in Michigan started the trend in 1931.
  • You gotta feel a little bad for the President and other administrators of Aquinas College: the beautiful old building housing their offices (Holmdene) is said to be haunted by multiple ghosts!
