From May 25-June 2, members of the Festival Choir, made up of the Chamber Singers and Concert Choir, along with their conductor, Dr. Angela Br...

Many Twists and Turns on the Path to Today’s New Logo - The University of St. Thomas logo unveiled today is the latest in an evolutionary series of symbols and typefaces that go back more than half a century. St. Thomas lacked a consistent symbol or logo until 1958. That’s when The Aquin, the college’s student newspaper, published an image of the new “coat of arms” under the headline “New College Seal Symbolizes Patron, Past, Stature, Colors.” The seal was designed by a priest from the New ...
Over the years, the flaming chalice and blazing-red slash have hit the cutting-room floor.

Humans of St. Thomas: Shannon Twiss and Hannah Drazenovich - Hannah Drazenovich and Shannon Twiss both started at St. Thomas in fall 2013 as roommates. Like many other St. Thomas students arriving on campus to live together, they didn’t know each other well. Unlike many other students, they had a family connection: Their grandmothers had been roommates at St. Cloud State’s teaching college. Those grandmothers, June Drazenovich and Irma Kelley, kept in touch over the years and joked to their...

How It Works: Cleaning Sacred Spaces - Sacred spaces across St. Thomas’ campus are used in many different ways, bringing people together in celebration of Mass or through individual prayer. While a lot of emphasis is placed on the spiritual importance of these spaces, also critical is the physical presence. Time, consideration and care were put into the design of the sacred spaces – and those same elements are put into making sure these places are well-maintained for a long time to come. Ch...
