“Thomas is a small, student-focused school that resonated with me the first time I visited campus. In fact, Thomas College is the only institution I applied to attend. I love the opportunities a small classroom provides and the ability to make real connections with my professors. I’ve always felt that the entire staff at Thomas sincerely wants every student to succeed – something that can’t be said for every other college or university.”
