In May 1975, it was accredited by the Ministry of Education. In 1990, it was granted new status as “Assumption University” by the Ministry of University Affairs. MOTTO LABOR OMNIA VINCIT The University is a non-profit institution administered by the Brothers of St. Gabriel, a worldwide Catholic religious order, founded in France in 1705 by St. Louis Marie De Montfort, devoted to education and philanthropic activities. The congregation has been operating many educational institutions in Thailand since 1901. OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES _____________________________________________________ The University is an international community of scholars, enlivened by Christian inspiration, engaged in the pursuit of truth and knowledge, serving the human society, especially through the creative use of interdisciplinary approaches and cybertechnology.

In loyalty to its Christian mission, Assumption University stands for • The inculcation of respect for the three institutions of the Nation: Religion, Country, Monarchy; and a democratic way of life. • The belief that a man justifies himself and his existence by the nobility of his work: LABOR OMNIA VINCIT • The commitment to be a light that leads men towards the true source of all knowledge and life: LUX VERITAS 9 GENERAL INFORMATION ACCREDITATION MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION The University is fully accredited by OHEC (Office of Higher Education Commission) and ONESQA (Office for National Education Standards and Quality Assessment).

The original campus is a compact, vertical campus comprised of 17 buildings with the tallest having a total of 16 floors. A small lake surrounded by lush gardens and seating is a focal point of beauty and tranquility. Food, convenience, and service shops to support student needs surround the campus. This has become the home of the postgraduate faculties. The Suvarnabhumi Campus, constructed as a “University in a Park”, comprises of 200 acres of beautifully landscaped assembly of mixed architecture surrounded by lush tropical gardens and trees. Designed to host the university’s undergraduate degree programs, it offers everything: a meeting/exhibition center, hotel, non-coeducational dormitories, a magnificent chapel, a museum, eleven academic halls, and much more. The centerpiece of the campus is the Cathedral of Learning, a 39-story tower, which houses student support services, the library, reception halls, seminar rooms, and offices. Transportation between the two campuses is convenient and inexpensive. Shuttles run throughout the day between various points in Bangkok and the Suvarnabhumi Campus. 11 FACILITIES AND SERVICES LIBRARIES are available for emergencies, first aid, and medical counseling. Students, faculty and staff members with medical problems are encouraged to keep their files active at the Health Center regarding the nature of their problems so that appropriate action can be taken in the event of an emergency. Each Assumption University campus maintains a large library with over 500,000 books and periodicals. In addition to the study facilities provided for students and instructors in the main libraries, there are reading areas in many other locations. These include the Catholic Education Council library and the Catholic library. HEATH SERVICES FOOD SERVICE AND CAFETERIAS Assumption University provides health services at both campuses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
