The Summer Program faculty and staff look forward to welcoming 100+ Summer Program attendees this July 24! Spaces are still available, just be sure to apply by the July 15 deadline!

Quite a number of fine men and women, including:

  • 100+ students from around the country and abroad. 
  • Dr. Michael Letteney, Summer Program Director, and a graduate of Thomas Aquinas College. After earning his PhD at the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Letteney taught at Xavier University before returning to accept a position as a tutor at Thomas Aquinas College in 1998. Dr. Letteney will direct the other faculty members teaching on the program. 
  • The members of the Admissions Office: Jon Daly, Admissions Director; Scott Benigar, Admissions Counselor; Louis Conklin, Admissions Counselor 
  • 18 summer program staff members — called “prefects” — including 15 current students and 3 graduates of the College, all of whom will be taking time off from graduate studies or their summer vacations for the  two lively weeks of conversation, fellowship and camaraderie the program is set to inspire!

June 27,

Rev. Sebastian Walshe, O.Praem. (’94)Fr. Sebastian Walshe, O.Praem., a 1994 graduate of Thomas Aquinas College will return this year to join the College’s Head Chaplain, Fr. Cornelius Buckley, S.J. in working on the Summer Program. Both will offer daily Mass and lead the spiritual life at the College. Fr. Sebastian, better than 6’1” and with excellent skills on the basketball court, also made a fine addition to last year’s prefect basketball team … which ended up just winning a hard-fought contest with the students. He hopes for a matchup this year again!
