Year one is behind us. Year two has begun.
We aren't becoming D-I. We ARE D-I. St. Thomas has firmly established this new chapter to showcase comprehensive excellence across the country.
In our pursuit of comprehensive excellence, we're building strong teams of student athletes, and talented and diverse coaches and staff, all committed to displaying our institutional shared values and convictions on the field, court and ice.
As alumni, your awareness and support is critical to help move St. Thomas forwarD1. Learn more and make plans to meet your classmates in the stands!
We're watching, vested and smiling with our hearts and souls. The play and demeanor screams: we're here...we're transitioning to nothing...we belong."

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.
