Thomas College is truly a unique school; here I feel welcome, safe, and happy while still being academically challenged and studying a lot. The community here in Waterville and on campus is like a family, and I don't think I could feel as comfortable and satisfied with my education anywhere else.

This school is so wonderful. I don't really like the GPH dorm but the school and professors are wonderful. The people you just wonder how did you get accepted here. But in all this is a great school.
