On January 28, 2012 — the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas — the College held a campus celebration to mark its 40th anniversary. The event began with a Mass in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel, followed by a reception in St. Bernadine of Siena Library. The celebration then continued with an all-school dinner in St. Joseph Commons featuring a distinguished guest speaker with deep ties to the College, the Hon. J.

A MATTER OF CONSCIENCE
Friends Applaud College’s  Protest of Contraceptive Mandate

Thomas Aquinas College President Michael F. McLean has received strong support from the College’s friends and benefactors for his letter protesting the Obama Administration’s decision to require that coverage for sterilization, abortifacients, and contraception be included in virtually all health plans. The letter, dated January 30, was addressed to California’s two U.S. senators, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Barbara Boxer, and the College’s local congressman, Rep. Elton Gallegly.
