The First Day
July 21,
2014

The first day of the 2014 High School Summer Program began with breakfast in St. Joseph Commons, followed by a student orientation session in the library. There, the director of the summer program, Dr. Christopher A. Decaen, introduced the students to the program’s tutors — all members of the Thomas Aquinas College teaching faculty. The group then posed for a photo by the Guadalupe Fountain before heading across the quadrangle for a morning Mass in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel.

For the first day’s classes, students studied Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex and Plato’s Euthyphro. Then came an afternoon of sports and fun on the campus athletic fields:
