Beautiful campus

Beautiful campus with the equally great Circle Theatre. Wonderful to stroll through the campus with its old buildings and wonderful landscape.

This small Catholic Campus is beautiful year around, but especially in the fall. If you were taking family portraits, the scenery and lighting is spectacular. It's easy to walk around the grounds and the Gothic style buildings are very cool.

We went to a theatre production and had a wonderful time. If you can't do that, please stop on the grounds the land around it and the building itself is beautiful.

I attended Aquinas from 2011-2015 and worked many jobs on campus. This place is a hidden gem. Campus is gorgeous in every season (particularly the fall), and you'll find many photographers here for weddings, senior pictures and family photos. A focal point of campus is Holmdene manor, the estate with a large lawn in front of it. If you plan... More

This small Catholic college is nestled on the grounds of a former estate in southeast Grand Rapids, MI. The school has been well endowed by a wealthy local businessman for decades. It has a dedicated, caring staff, beautiful facilities, and its small size makes campus life easy, unstressful, and laid back.

Today's quick tour of the campus on a snowy day felt like a walk through an enchanted land. Graceful old buildings, beautiful wooded walks. This campus is a must see for tourists. This meshed with my idea of what a fine spiritually-based liberal arts college looks like. Sipped hot cocoa in the Cook Carriage House, viewed student photo art in... More

I have honestly never dealt with an institution with poor record keeping, not to mention various times of attempting to get a hold of their departments. Always claiming that they are either out of the office of on a family leave for 2 1/2 years ? seriously, does it take that long to do a graduation audit? They are heartless... More

I have attended many plays, and musical events, over the years at Circle. Each performance was top notch. Based on experience, I know Circle selects only talented actors or musicians, so I always look forward to the evening's event. The setting is intimate, the seats in a semi-circle, with the "stage" at the bottom of the room, so that everyone... More

We went to see a play at the Circle Theater and got there early and walked around campus. Very beautiful old buildings with great walking paths and scenic landscaping. The theater is very modern and new and a great place to see plays.
