Strong academic and service profile highlights Thiel College’s Class of 2023

GREENVILLE, Pa.—The Thiel College Office of Admission has exceeded domestic student enrollment for the second straight year and has recruited one of the strongest academic classes in its recent history with the office’s confirmation that two-thirds of the Class of 2023 has a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher.

The number of students with a 3.0 or above is 11 percent increase over last year’s first-year class. The 278 members of this year’s first-year class is also nearly an even split along gender lines. Fifty-two percent of the class is male. The Class of 2023 also showcases the Office of Admission’s focus on western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. About 70 percent of the class came from western Pa. and eastern Ohio. The local focus also led to a dip in foreign exchange and international students.

“We are proud of the academic strength of the Class of 2023. This class exemplifies why Thiel College, with new exciting new programs and generous financial aid and scholarship packages, is an attractive choice for students from the region,” Thiel College Vice President for Enrollment Management Ashley Josay Zullo said. “This incoming class is a demonstration of what happens when the entire College’s staff and faculty members work together to recruit students. This community prepares students for a lifetime of involvement and achievement. You only need to look at the success of our second annual first-year student service project to see that Thiel College is educating students for lives of meaning and purpose.”

This year’s food drive collected more than two tons of non-perishable food items for area food pantries.
