LINCOLN, AQUINAs, MOZART & mORE
Audio, Text & Photos from Two Recent Talks

At the College’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner, President Michael F. McLean spoke about Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation and its evocation of the “Our Father,” drawing upon St. Thomas’ sermons about the Lord’s Prayer.

Also in November, as part of the St. Vincent de Paul Concert and Lecture Series, Dr. Peter Kalkavage of St. John’s College delivered a talk entitled “Passion and Perception in Mozart’s Magic Flute.” It was a spirited presentation, complete with musical accompaniment and a vigorous question-and-answer session. Both talks are available on the College’s website.

THE COLLEGE IN THE NEWS
Stories from Heritage Foundation,
Ventura County Star


Praising the College for its devotion to classical liberal education, the Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Messmore recently praised Thomas Aquinas College as “A Different Kind of ‘Liberal’” in a post on the think tank’s official blog.

Echoing these themes, in November the Ventura County Star ran a front-page story about the College
s 40th anniversary. The article noted the College’s reputation for academic excellence and the strong moral and spiritual life of its students.
