DR. MCARTHUR ADDRESSES STUDENTS
Audio and Video Available Online

With the academic year coming to a close, students recently asked Thomas Aquinas College’s founding president, Ronald P. McArthur, to share his thoughts with them about the school and its unique program of Catholic liberal education. Dr. McAthur’s informal talk, given after dinner in the garden just outside St. Joseph Commons, ranged from the history of the College to the good fruit it is bearing in the Church and the country, and included some advice for seniors as they prepare for life after graduation.

"This is a Fight for Reason"

William McGurn, vice president for News Corporation and author of the weekly “Main Street” column in the Wall Street Journal, was the featured speaker at an April reception for friends and alumni of Thomas Aquinas College in New York City. In his address Mr. McGurn spoke about the history of anti-Catholicism in the United States, the fragile state of religious liberty today, and the role Thomas Aquinas College alumni will play in defending that liberty in the days ahead.
