St. Thomas Magazine_Spring 2022


The Twin Cities CornMaze chose St. Thomas for its 2021 theme in honor of its inaugural Division I season. An aerial shot byMark Brown captures the beauty of the university‘s name and logo formed by themassive corn stalks. Inside, attendees could visit 15 stations marked with different facts about St. Thomas, starting with how it was founded by Archbishop John Ireland as an all-male seminary in 1885. Aportion of every ticket that was sold to this year‘s maze was donated to the Tommie Athletic Fund to support St. Thomas student- athletes. Thousands of people visited the maze, amounting to approximately $15,000 received by the TommieAthletic Fund. In his 11 years of operating the Brooklyn Park- based cornmaze, founder Bert Bouwman has raised over $200,000 for local charities. The TommieAthletic Fund received over $1.2 million on Tommie Give Day andmore than $12million since announcing themove to D-I in 2020.
