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.
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.
