Critical Thinkers

The life of an Aquinian is not only buried in books as both students and educators are given the chance to speak up their concerns on the different issues that haunt the society. As a concrete proof, the university is one of institutions that are against Rapu-Rapu mining. The Lafayette mine, located in the island of Rapu-Rapu, is causing fish kills in the area. This situation prompted the university and other institutions to act and ask for the closure and pull-out of Lafayette’s mining operations and indemnification for the island’s affected communities.

As students, Aquinians are encouraged to participate in worthwhile social activities that could help alleviate the community’s situation. Aquinians are not taught to be passive instead they are challenged to question the existing system that could endanger the majority. All these are taught in this premier university.
