Why did you choose Thiel?
Graduating in a high school class of close to 600 students, I never really had a close connection with my teachers. I knew that they wanted to help me succeed but they never really took that extra step to push me in the right direction. After visiting Thiel and meeting the staff and current students, I had a sudden sense of calmness because I knew that Thiel College was the place where I needed to further my studies. The professors are willing to meet at anytime of the day and are always there for extra help in the class. The comfort and hospitality of the entire campus truly has made Thiel my home away from home.
What has been your favorite part of your Thiel experience so far?
As a member of the Freshman Class, I participated in the Orientation Day events for the Class of 2013. I really enjoyed the activities that were planned. It allowed new students to have the chance to meet other students from the class, it kept me busy so it was easier to make the transition from home to college, and it also gave me insight to how classes were set up.
Advice for prospective students?
I strongly advise prospective students to visit the campus and sit in on a class or two. Make sure you feel comfortable and that the class structure fits your needs. Even if you are unsure on your major, these class sittings will give you some feedback and could even change your mind about your future profession.
