St. Thomas Is A-Mazing


The Twin Cities Corn Maze chose St. Thomas for its 2021 theme in honor of its inaugural Division I season. An aerial shot by Mark Brown captures the beauty of the university’s name and logo formed by the massive 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.

A portion 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 Tommie Athletic Fund.

In his 11 years of operating the Brooklyn Park-based corn maze, founder Bert Bouwman has raised over $200,000 for local charities. The Tommie Athletic Fund received over $1.2 million on Tommie Give Day and more than $12 million since announcing the move to D-I in 2020.
