At Thiel College, there’s something for everyone. Our campus is close-knit and inviting, welcoming students from diverse cultures, places and viewpoints. It’s easy to find ways to get involved, or better yet - start a new club or activity! Our Greenville, Pennsylvania campus also isn’t far from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Erie which allows students to explore and pursue a variety of internship opportunities.
In the past few years, entirely new clubs have been formed by students, including the rugby club, the equestrian club and the outdoors club. Students also recently revitalized the college radio station (WXTC) and grew the Thiel College marching band to over 100 participants!
