Continuous And Effective Communication

Given our extensive global reach, interconnections between Aquinas Institute and its alums, and among alumni themselves, have expanded considerably in the last decade far beyond the sole utilization of the US Postal Service for communication and the rooms of Aquinas Institute for alumni lectures and soirées. Dissemination of alumni information and real-time, face-to-face encounters are now increasingly facilitated through a variety of Internet vehicles and electronic delivery systems.
