Last week a sign appeared on the bulletin board in Gould Hall, the dining commons of Thomas Aquinas College, New England: “Everyone is invited to a Party — Hosted by the CC.”

The “CC,” a note at the bottom explained, “is a club full of tutor children.” The faculty kids were planning a party “to welcome all Freshmen and Sophomores,” which would  be held Saturday afternoon, just outside of Gould. “There will be a few speeches as well as refreshments.”

As promised, the party took place this past weekend. There were games — including chess, volleyball, Frisbee and cornhole — as well as the promised refreshments and speeches. A few of the children formally welcomed the students and introduced their peers, while another gave a talk contrasting fiction and nonfiction literature. The hosts even revealed the meaning of their “CC” acronym: Campus Club.

“Almost the entire student body was there, and so were most of the tutors and their families,” reports one of the residential directors. “That’s one of the advantages of the small starting size of this campus: It’s a tight-knit community. The tutors all live on campus, and their kids — who come to events, and are often seen in packs, riding their bikes — liven up the place. They give the campus a real family feel.”

“I am happy with the mission of Thomas Aquinas College and with the results spread through various countries in the world!”
