Thiel College Reviews
My first year at Thiel College was amazing! The school as an whole is just wonderful. I have never met such an caring and connected environment. The people here are so nice and considerate. The professor are just astonishing, from the way they teach to how they go out of their way to make sure your learning needs are being met. The class sizes are so small that not only do the professor know you be first name but so does all of your peers. Everything on campus is great, from academics to student life even sports. I would give this school ten golden stars!
Thiel is a pretty small school with a population of about 1,200-1,300 students. The overall quality of the education is decent, but I think there is some room for improvement with a number of the academic departments. As an Education major, I feel somewhat prepared for student teaching this year and have learned a lot about best teaching practices. The food is ok, but then again we just hired a new head chef for the cafeteria last year. There are a number of food options in the cafeteria, as long as you aren't a picky eater. My number one takeaway from attending Thiel? Join activities! We have over a dozen clubs, sports teams, and Greek Life organizations. Those who study hard might also get the chance to join honor societies. If you are looking for a small school environment where you can connect with people in times of trouble or to broaden your horizons, I suggest checking out Thiel College.
A quality liberal arts education provided by a caring and involved faculty. The small environment allowed us to develop friendships which will last for a lifetime. A chance to get seriously involved in a variety of extracurricular activities including Student Government, Athletics, Musical organizations, Science Clubs, Greek organizations, Religious activities, etc.
