Thomas College Reviews

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.

Great Classes, Professors, and Environment.
The college is well taken care of and has all the amenities you could want!
This school is my perfect fit. It is small, personable, and accommodating. This is my second year at Thomas but technically my 3rd year as a college student for Thomas accepted all my credits from University of Maine at Fort Kent. Most classes here at Thomas are unique and want students to participate fully. The professors at Thomas College are personable and always available to help when they are needed. I think that this school would be a great fit for anyone wanting to challenge themselves but also don't mind receiving help when needed.
