Farewell, St. Patrick Hall

Farewell, St. Patrick Hall

Early in the morning of May 23, 2013, a truck towed away the last modular building on the academic quadrangle of Thomas Aquinas College — St. Patrick Hall — thereby making room for the College’s new classroom building, St. Gladys Hall.

Although simple and, at times, unbearably hot, St. Patrick’s was beloved by students and alumni, who warmly remember countless conversations about the great books held within its aluminum walls. Construction on St. Gladys Hall will begin this summer.

“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.”
