Academics: Thomas College is a very good school because each classroom has an average of 20 kids, maximum. There's a lot of work but definitely doable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The academics at Thomas are very strong, and most students say the College provides a great atmosphere that helps prepare them for their future careers. Most of the professors here have earned their doctorate degree or have worked in the field of study in which they teach, so many have real-world experience. They offer broad knowledge with a variety of teaching methods and styles, but all professors offer extra time with a student if needed. For example, if a student fails a test or is struggling in a certain subject, an appointment can be made with a tutor and/or the professor. Thomas’ small size is a big reason why this is possible.

A Thomas student’s workload depends a lot on their individual professors and syllabi. But if you get bogged down or need help in any area, there are multiple resources available on campus, such as tutors, peer mentors, orientation leaders, professors, advisers, librarians, and other students.
