Aquinas College (Tenn.) Revises Growth Plans, Set to Expand Current Campus

Aquinas College in Nashville, Tenn., has announced plans to expand its current campus to include a multi-purpose facility with a residential hall, student life center and dining facility, according to a press release from the College.

The multi-purpose facility, which is expected to be complete by the fall of 2015, is the first of a number of phases of growth planned for the College.

Aquinas also announced that it will not be pursuing the nearby Welch College campus, which it had previously considered purchasing.  The College reports:

The College is concluding a long-range planning process that has determined that expanding facilities, academic programs, and student life on the current campus makes the best sense in order for the College to continue its mission in the future. This has been an extremely thorough and invigorating process that explored many options. In the end, it was clear the best course is to expand the home campus.

The college realizes that many people, including current and prospective students, supporters of the Dominican Campus and neighbors of the campus are interested in future plans.  Now that direction has been determined, Aquinas College is moving forward on first-phase construction planning and is developing a master plan for the current Aquinas Campus. The college will be excited to share that plan and its complimentary strategic growth plan with the community when they are finalized.

Aquinas College is recommended in The Newman Guide for strong Catholic identity.
