Living Learning Community

The special Honors Living-Learning Community in Aquinas is a phenomenal way to get to know other Honors students. If you have met certain qualifications, and/or have received a Presidential or Honors at Entrance Scholarship, we encourage you to join us in Aquinas.

Aquinas is a suite style dorm close to the library and classrooms, 用洗衣, 休息室, and special Honors tutors and programs. Honors students can choose non-Honors students as roommates, and you can remain in Aquinas even if you withdraw from the 荣誉项目.
