Aquinas Institute of Theology staff and faculty have been busy completing building and technology upgrades in preparation for the start of the 2014 Fall Semester on August 25th. While these preparations have included standard building maintenance such as the washing and staining of the deck space adjacent to the commons area on the main floor, vital technological upgrades have also been made in order to to keep Aquinas Institute's educational offerings on track with other top-notch schools.

"This past April, we upgraded the old Windows XP tower computers in the library with new Windows 7 cubes," explained Dan Moore, Director of Instructional Technology. "In late July, we also upgraded the old CRT monitors with flat screens. These upgrades will result in an improved, faster and more energy-efficient user experience for those students who take advantage of these computers for their on-campus studies and research".
Aquinas Institute of Theology seeks to create an environment that cultivates holistic student growth while enhancing intellectual, spiritual, personal and communal development. Updating instructional equipment and building maintenance are just two of the many ways that we foster a learning community.
