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.

Thomas College is a great school! I’ve made some great friends and met my girlfriend my first semester. I’m currently the Vice President of the club I’m in and am a criminal justice major. I’m confident that this school will help me achieve my career goals!
I stayed here for a week the summer after my junior year in high school. I took a full college course in about 4 or 5 days. The dorms were amazing, if just a little hot because the windows are too small for an air conditioner, not that they had any anyways. The teacher was incredibly involved and amazing to be around, the other students were fun and inviting and welcoming, and the food was absolutely delicious. They had options for everyone, including gluten free and vegan options! The classwork was tough, but not impossible, and the atmosphere and campus itself are just magical.
