Thomas College Athletics
A recent report from the National College Athletics Association shows that student-athletes are more likely to seek out leadership opportunities in their careers after college. We’re not surprised.
The Thomas College Terriers compete in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC), NCAA Division III. We like to win—and we do! But here at Thomas, we balance competitive athletics with an academic experience that puts your path to earning a degree first. That means you’ll play hard, but you’ll also have the time to complete an internship, join clubs and activities, and not miss out on everything college has to offer. You can even play more than one sport at Thomas.
Athletics at Thomas College are a great way to learn all kinds of skills that prepare you for work and life. Our student athletes learn how to manage their time, work hard, focus, challenge themselves, take responsibility, and play with teammates who become friends for life. You’ll have fun, learn more about yourself and your potential, and graduate on time with the skills you need to lead—on and off the field.
