“ When I was in high school I didn’t really connect with my teachers and everything was taught out of a book with no connection to real life. I came to Thomas and have the honor of being taught by the perfect examples of realistic professors in CJ. My professors talk from experience more than they do from the book. There is no better way of learning than learning through your own experiences along with others experiences.”
