Albertus Seal

The seal of Albertus Magnus College is comprised of two shields. In the background (black and white) is the Dominican shield which recalls the College's foundation as a Dominican college. In the foreground is the family shield (House of Bollstadt) of the Dominican saint and scholar, Albert the Great, from which the College derives its name.

The Founders

The College was founded in 1925 by the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs, now known as the Dominican Sisters of Peace


Every year during the Candlelight Ceremony the senior class welcomes new students into the Albertus Magnus tradition of learning a tradition of the College since its founding.

Lecture Series

The College offers 3 lectures a year in the St. Thomas Aquinas Lecture Series on a contemporary topic from a Dominican perspective

All classes and offices were first housed in Rosary Hall, a Palladian-style mansion that has since been converted for use as the campus's main library.

Faith Goals

Albertus Magnus College affirms its fidelity to the life of the human mind and spirit. We believe that training in the liberal arts is excellent preparation for life.
