About AQ

“Faith grows when it is lived as an experience of love received and when it is communicated as an experience of grace and joy. It makes us fruitful, because it expands our hearts in hope and enables us to bear life-giving witness.” – Pope Benedict XVI, Porta Fidei

Aquinas House is the Catholic Student Center at Dartmouth College, a community where students may nurture their faith and grow in holiness. AQ is a vibrant community of faith in which each person is strengthened to grow closer to God through Jesus Christ and to live out our Catholic faith in daily life. Students not only come to understand their faith, but to articulate it for others who may not share their views. It is here that our Catholic faith is taught, celebrated, and lived, through a variety of spiritual, educational, and social activities.

Open 24 hours a day, all students are welcome to use AQ as a place to pray, study, socialize, and relax. Here you can share your faith and your questions, be of service to others, and integrate the spiritual, social, and academic aspects of your college life. Particular highlights:
