WATERVILLE, MAINE – Thomas College is pleased to announce a partnership with MEMIC to extend graduate education to all its employees, whether they are fully remote, based in its Portland flagship location, or in its regional offices in Albany, N.Y., Glastonbury, Conn., Manchester, N.H., and Tampa, Fla.
