April 7, 2003 - Three Aquinas College students have been selected to receive 2003 Michigan Campus Compact (MCC) Outstanding Student Services Awards. Timothy Burdick, Mary "Bridie Kent and Mary "Bridget" Clark will be honored during MCC's Service Award Ceremony on Saturday, April 12, 2003, in East Lansing.

TJ Burdick will receive the MCC Heart
Soul Award, which recognizes students for time, effort and personal commitment to their community through service. Bridie Kent will receive the MCC Commitment to Service Award, which recognizes one student per MCC-member campus, for multiple contributions she has made to Aquinas and the community through her community service involvement. Bridget Clark is one of five students statewide to receive the MCC Outstanding Community Impact Award for making service an integral part or her college experience through significant investment in enhancing community resources. As part of Bridget's award, a $200 monetary award will be given to a non-profit agency of Bridget's choice.

The Michigan Campus Compact promotes the education and commitment of Michigan college students to be civically engaged citizens, through creating and expanding academic, co-curricular and campus-wide opportunities for community service, service-learning and civic engagement.

Consistently ranked one of the top liberal arts colleges in the Midwest by U.S. News and World Report, Aquinas College offers an approach to learning and living that teaches students unlimited ways of seeing the world. Founded in 1886 by the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids, the College's Dominican tradition of working, service and lifelong learning remains alive today in a diverse student body.

Within six months of graduation, nearly all graduates are in full-time jobs, enrolled in professional schools of law, medicine, or dentistry, or in a master or doctoral program.
