Free Project Plants Roots at St. Thomas - Last year the University of St. Thomas joined the Free Project, a growing network of 22 colleges and universities that have banded together to fight modern slavery worldwide. St. Thomas history professor David Williard, Ph.D., saw St. Thomas as a perfect fit to undertake the aims of the international organization’s mission. But he, along with the early members of St. Thomas’ chapter, have big, far-reaching dreams for the project – so big that even t...

List of Lists: Top 10 Foods on Campus - With so many delicious foods served on a daily basis around the St. Thomas campuses, it is no small feat to rank the 10 best.

Staff members Brian Brown (executive director, senior editor), Patty Petersen (editor), Kelly Engebretson (editor, writer), Kate Metzger (associate director of the Ne...

Mark Neuzil: Telling Mother Nature’s Story (Audio) - Communication and Journalism professor Mark Neuzil has covered and written about the environment – and taught students to do the same – for decades. How do you go about telling the story of a subject that can’t speak for itself? How do you get society at large to understand issues that are often complex and abstract but deeply important? Neuzil joined the Newsroom to talk about these topics and others in a taped interview, which has been ...

Photo Services Best of 2016 - A diver captured at the moment before gravity takes over. A sunburst lighting the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas. An explosion of pink blossoms in spring. We’ve picked these moments, and the others you see here, from the more than 5,000 we collected in 2016, as our favorites of the year. Make no mistake – this collection of images is not comprehensive. Sometimes a photo is included because it was a major event on campus. Others are here because they’re a deep cut...

Tommie Helps Parathlete Make Her Run at Rio - With the dozens, if not hundreds, of messages a phone can bring per day, Andrew Tollefson probably didn’t think much of it when his phone buzzed with another notification toward the end of his freshman year. But this was a rare message that would have an impact lasting beyond just that moment, week or even year: Someone had posted on St. Thomas’ track and field Facebook page asking if any of the students had interest in being a runner guide for ...

Some notion of human rights can be traced as far back as the Hammurabi Code in ancient Mesopotamia (1750 B.C.), through early Buddhist, Judeo-Christian, Islamic and other religious traditions, Greco-Roman ideas of jus gentium, theories of natural laws in the Western tradition, and the documents of the French and American ...

English Professor Takes Top Prize in Poetry Contest - Like many writers, assistant professor of English Chris Santiago is no stranger to rejection. He confessed to keeping a “great spreadsheet online” of his rejections while trying to find interest for his book of poems. But in April 2016, all the rejections became irrelevant. Santiago’s acceptance came with no shortage of accolades: He is the winner of the 2016 Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry, a regional poetry prize presented by Milkw...

How It Works: The Birth of a New Club - All right, so you’ve got a great idea for a new club at St. Thomas. A point of passion that you think other Tommies would be interested in doing with you. Maybe it’s fishing. Or tabletop gaming. Or photography. Or Capoeira. (Actually, if you’re interested in any of those things there are already clubs on campus for them, along with about 140 other clubs; that photo above is of the Capoeira club performing in April. So, if you’ve got a great idea for a...
