Thiel College has given me the opportunity to discover what major best suits me, and its faculty have been very helpful and encouraging toward me as I have worked to make that decision. Coming into college, I had no idea what major to pursue. Within only a few weeks here at Thiel, however, I had made a rather concrete decision and feel confident now about my choice. The dorms, facilities, classrooms, and study areas are great and are easily accessible. Most of the dorm buildings are very close to the academic buildings, and classrooms are easy to find. Professors are helpful and willing to work with students, and most of them are excited to be teaching and provide effective learning environments. Located in the small town of Greenville, Pennsylvania, Thiel is a small and a rather quiet school, which is part of why I love it and would highly recommend it.

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 college is an interesting liberal arts school. The professors are motivated to see their students succeed. The resources available for those who need help are diverse, if anything. The writing lab would have to be my favorite. As a campus resident, I eat in the cafeteria. There are good days as well as bad when it comes to food and quality of taste. The meals would be the only I would change about this college.
