College to Host New England
Open House

Posted: March 11, 2019

On Sunday, April 7, Thomas Aquinas College will host an Open House at its New England campus. The event is open to prospective students, parents, teachers, youth ministers, pastors, and anyone else who would like to learn more about the College’s unique program of Catholic liberal education.

“We are very excited to open our second campus this fall, and we are eager to introduce ourselves to our new neighbors,” says Admissions Director Jon Daly. “We offer this day as a way for friends, both old and new, to come learn about how, for nearly 50 years, we have offered our highly rated program of Catholic liberal education in California, and how we now plan to do the same in New England.”

The event will take place on the College’s newly obtained campus in Northfield, Massachusetts, the century-old former site of a preparatory school founded by D.L. Moody, a prominent 19th century evangelist. “We are blessed to have been given a truly beautiful campus with excellent facilities and a rich history,” says Mr. Daly. “So, even though the College is new to the region, it has all  the advantages of an older institution — an established campus and a proven academic program.”

The event will begin with Mass at 1:30 p.m. in the campus chapel, offered by Rev. Michael Casey, a chaplain at Central Connecticut State University. Following the Mass, college officials will lead guests on a tour of the grounds. The groups will then gather in Olivia Music Hall, where they will hear from the College’s president, Michael F. McLean, and the associate dean for the New England campus, Dr. Thomas J. Kaiser, as well as from Thomas Aquinas College alumni, parents, and Admissions counselors. The day will conclude with light refreshments in Merrill-Keep Hall.

“This is a great way to learn about Thomas Aquinas College, New England, and to meet members of the community,” says Mr. Daly. “We encourage those who may be interested to come join us — and also to pass along this invitation to anyone whom they think it could benefit.”

Guests are asked to please RSVP online

“It is amazing to read all the different works from a wide range of disciplines, and see the same truth popping up again and again — whether it’s in Euclid, or theology, or natural science. It all comes together to form a full picture.”
