Tommies past and present gathered Wednesday to celebrate St. Thomas Day, a day used to honor distinguished alumni and students who have made meaningful contributions to the university and community.
KUST, the St. Thomas student-run radio station, celebrated the release of its CD “UST Sampler Vol. 1” in front of a packed house at Scooter’s Tuesday night.
Creativity was on display last weekend at St. Catherine’s as seniors in the studio art program displayed the fruits of their labor.
St. Thomas senior Elizabeth Dourgarian joined St. Kate’s seniors Molly Kruger and Kelly Lauren Miner to kick off the show with a reception Saturday. Each artist showcased work that had taken years to complete.
St. Thomas tied for No. 41 out of the 50 most underrated colleges in America, according to a January ranking by Business Insider magazine.
The magazine’s designation of “underrated” colleges is based on rankings done by U.S. News and World Report and PayScale. The U.S. News rankings are based on undergraduate academic reputation, student retention, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, graduation rate performance and alumni giving rate. That ranking is then compared to PayScale’s ranking, which is based on the average mid-career salary of the school’s graduates.
Heart pumping. The crisp January air nips at his fingertips. His eyes dart quickly from his laptop screen to the crowd gathered in front of him. As the song builds, so does the energy of the stocking cap-clad audience until the tension is too much to bear. Then the beat drops.
