You’re invited to experience life as a St. Thomas student – all from the comfort of your own home!  Please join us for our virtual Open House on Saturday, November 7th.




Hear from current STUdents, alumni, faculty, and staff; watch topics you are passionate about come to life through a sample class or two; and see some of our beautiful campus and student-oriented facilities. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about our liberal arts approach and unique academic programs, which foster intellectual and personal growth, critical thought, close relationships between faculty and students, and global citizenry.


During the event, we will provide you with helpful tips pertaining to our application process, and will waive the application fee for all event attendees.
