The preview is part of a soft launch in preparation for the full release in June. The full release will include all aspects of the Aquinas yearbook that UST has come to know and enjoy; it will be accessible through the Web at the yearbook’s new home, aquinasyearbook.com. The full release also will be available as an app for all Android devices, Apple iPhones and iPads, and the Kindle Fire.

In addition to capturing the joys and memories here at the University of St. Thomas, the Aquinas yearbook now allows readers to experience seamlessly embedded multimedia content such as slideshows, videos and 360-degree revolving panoramic shots.

  • Brilliant replica format, just like the print edition of Aquinas in years past.
  • Text-formatted articles designed for mobile readability.
