Comprehensive Excellence

This Change is Nothing New

At the University of St. Thomas, change has been in our DNA since Archbishop John Ireland founded a small, Catholic liberal arts college where faith and reason walked together.

As a Dl institution, those convictions continue to guide St. Thomas’ evolution into nationally recognized comprehensive, urban university.

In the Classroom

Eleven of the 19 St. Thomas teams have a combined gpa of 3.40 or better, led by women's soccer at 3.71. That sport has eight players with a GPA of 4.00 and six others at 3.90 or better. Coach Sheila McGill's 12-player freshman class has a combined gpa of 3.90.

Coach Caruso's football team finished just one win away from a Pioneer Football League title share, ultimately settling in third place, despite being projected to finish 8th in the 11-team PFL in a summer vote of league coaches. Tommie football’s 7-3 overall record included a 4-0 mark at home.

Community and Character

In fall 2021, Tommie athletes launched efforts in the Summit League’s “Food Fight Challenge,” by supporting the collection of non-perishable food items for the Tommie Shelf and Keystone Community Services. Additionally, our teams continue to engage with key community partners, serving those most in need.
