I am a freshmen here at Thomas College. I love it here. The atmosphere, the students, the faculty, the facilities, and more make it so easy to learn, and to thrive. As a small school Thomas provides me with, almost, every need in order to maximize my potential and learning capabilities. I am a student-athlete here and the professors and coaches make it easy to learn, play, and succeed!
Thomas College is a great school all around. All of the teachers that I have had have been quite wonderful. I am currently a Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice Major and have found that this school has tons of unique opportunities that are geared toward students like myself. Thomas College has no shortage of clubs; there truly is something for everyone. They also have tons of fun activities for student throughout the entire school year, mostly on the weekends. Thomas College feels very safe and secure. The blue light system really does help make students feel safer even though the campus is relatively safe as is. The Public Safety officers are also really great and can help you out with just about anything you need. Overall Thomas has been a great experience and I've already learned so many things that I've been able to implement in real life situations. I highly recommend attending Thomas college.
To say that I love Thomas College would perhaps be a bit of an understatement. Thomas has become my home away from home, and the students, staff, and sports teams have become my second family, one that I am forever grateful that I have found. We are a small college in rural Maine, but that by no means makes us close minded or behind the times; on the contrary, Thomas hosts a wide variety of people from around the world in a close-knit, down-to-earth environment that welcomes all with open arms. Here, the professors know who you are and they care about your individual well-being and success--as does the whole of the faculty and staff, and the campus as a whole. We are a community based school that thrives on the success of our students in their personal and professional lives, and there isn't another place that I would want to be.
