Visits & Directions

  • students walking through woods

Located in one of the world’s most economically and culturally significant cities, Aquinas College is perfectly situated to provide a comfortable home within the excitement of Grand Rapids. Our campus is more than just a collection of classrooms — it’s both the inspiration and incubator for our community of scholars and thinkers. Come to campus, take a tour, meet our students, eat in our dining halls and explore.

>Schedule Your Personal Visit - Focused on you and your questions, you and your guests will meet one on one with an admissions counselor and tour campus. While we always try to provide individual tours, you may be placed in small groups. *During peak visit schedules (spring break, holidays, etc.), juniors will be provided a group information session and campus tour. 

>Schedule Your AQDay Visit - AQ's version of an "open house." Larger groups with a general overview providing a great introduction to Aquinas for first-time visitors. Campus tours have multiple families. 

>Club AQ (Admitted Overnight Program) - Admitted high school seniors' unique opportunity to "test drive" life at Aquinas. Stay overnight with one of our Student Ambassadors, experience a local downtown GR favorite for dinner and sit in on a class or two the next morning. Student Status Page log-in required. 

>Schedule Your AQuickChat - Having a hard time getting to Grand Rapids? We can come to you! Scheduled a 15-minute interactive web session tailored to you.

>Admitted Student Meetings - If you've decided to attend Aquinas and aren't sure how to proceed, this visit is for you! These 30-minute meetings are intended to help sort out any final questions to walk you through the final steps in to commit to AQ. If you want a more wide-ranging overview of Aquinas, a personal visit might be a better option. Student Status Page log-in required.
