Since the program from day to day is very varied, it is expected that a participant will book all day on Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 to 5:00 in for Aquinas. This time is rarely spent in the classroom, but many projects require substantial research as well as computer work.

I also like the idea of it not really being a course where you're not really in the class all the time and you work in the comfort of your own home if you choose to do so.
There is, however, a class-free zone of 11:30 to 1:00 for lunch. It is not recommended to try and cram a class into that time frame, as it is far better spent preparing yourself for the afternoon activities.

"The Aquinas program will run Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 to 4:30, with generally an hour to an hour and a half break for lunch. It is recommended, however, that one devote the majority of these two days to the Aquinas program. We hope by telling you this before registration week it will make your job of selecting your other two courses easier."
In addition to the regular Aquinas days, participants in the Truth in Society section are expected to attend a variety of outside occasions which will end up in a group discussion about the particular event, and how it relates to truth.

This write up should have also included that you will be expected to attend events outside the class that will count toward your final mark.
