Orientation2011
Caroline Johnson, M.D. (’97)

“The diverse and in-depth education I received at Thomas Aquinas College was extremely valuable, first and foremost, for my soul; but it also proved to be more beneficial for my vocation as a physician than all the ‘hard sciences’ combined, perfectly blending the practical with the philosophical, and allowing me to see Christ in all whom I treat.”

– Caroline Johnson, M.D. (’97)

NEWS FROM THE COLLEGE

“Thomas Aquinas is already the preeminent Catholic college in the country.”
