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.
