MAJORS (continued) “I chose to attend Thiel because it’s close to home and I knew I would be successful here. What I love about Thiel is that the campus is not too big. I went to a larger university right out of high school and I felt like a snowflake in a winter storm. Students here can have personal attention from the professors and not worry about just being an ID number they put a grade next to. I would strongly advise any transfer student to take advantage of the resources provided at The Learning Commons. Make time in your schedule to meet with your professors and get to know things about them–and don’t be afraid to ask questions... someone will point you in the right direction.” — ANTHONY HARVEY ’13

“I wasn’t fulfilled in my major [at my original college] and I transferred to Thiel College for the neuroscience program. I learned quickly with the support of Thiel’s amazing faculty and staff about the wonderful opportunities available to its students. I joined the golf team and it immediately helped me meet others, kept me focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and gave me an outlet. Thiel College has a positive outlook on life and has high hopes of success for all of its students. The people at Thiel are very welcoming and accepting and made it an easy transition.” — EMILY FRIEDRICH ’13
