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.
Thiel College is a great 4 year private institution. Amazing professors, great classes, tutors willing to help you at all times for any class you may be struggling with, somebody on stand by at all time if you're struggling with something going on in you're life and just need somebody to talk to. There's always different activities going on to entertain you and make you feel like you actually belong there.
