3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities of my school are okay, the gym could use an upgrade in equipment. Also, the school could make it bigger and more accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Campus is pretty, nice landscaping. The buildings are kind of retro style, the newer buildings have more glass windows and better designed.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Thomas College is pretty average when it comes to school. But one thing that sets it apart is the wide array of programs, clubs, and sport available. Students can join clubs related to there major like the Education Club and the Criminal Justice Club and explore other hobbies in the Gaming Club or Environmental Club.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Facilities at Thomas College are modern and classic wrapped into one. As the campus expands, new buildings are very contemporary. The athletic center, turf fields, and other athletic fields are very well kept and always open to students when there is no scheduled events. The library, computer laps, and 24/7 study rooms are great places to sit and study or get some tutoring for those tough classes. Some of the most popular student hang out areas include the student commons, the Barltlett lawn to play Frisbee or football on, and the hiking trails behind the school.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Thomas has one of the best facilities I have ever seen!

The facilities on campus are very well maintained. The Harold Alfond Athletic Center is one of the newer buildings on campus; the weight room there is always very clean, and there are multiple cardio and workout machines available. Other new buildings on campus include the Townhouse Suites, and the Administrative Building and its classrooms were recently renovated. New computers, chairs, and couches have also been recently added to campus.

The library is easily accessible, clean, and offers multiple resources for doing research.

There are always plenty of activities, meetings, and events on campus that help to keep students entertained.
