The Student Services Committee, made up of current students and representatives from the Office of Enrollment Management, plans a variety of events and activities for students to participate in throughout the academic year. Three sub-committees work to provide formation spiritually, interpersonally, and academically. Some of the events occurring this year are included below:
- Liturgy & Spirituality: weekly Aquinas Community Liturgies, Stations of the Cross and fish fry, and student retreat
- Student Life: wiffleball, kickball, St. Louis Blues hockey game, apple picking
- Academics & Professional Development: student study days, publishing resources, partnering with professors in building CV/resume and networking with alumni.

Through ongoing work of the Center for Community Engagement and Evangelization (CCEE), Aquinas Institute students have access to attend guest lectures from prominent theological instructions across the Unites States and beyond here on our own campus.
Last year we were privileged to bring in Dr. Hoffsman Ospino, Associate Professor of Hispanic Ministry and Religious Education and the Chair of the Department of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry at Boston College, Sherry Weddell, Catherine of Siena Institute Founder and author of Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus, and James Keenan, SJ, Vice Provost for Global Engagement, Canisius Professor of Theology and Director of Jesuit Institute at Boston College. These speakers covered a wide range of topics including Evangelization in the modern world, Hispanic Catholicism in relation to the Church at large, and the role of St. Thomas Aquinas in contemporary theological ethics.
