  • 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!
