  • “After visiting other schools and then visiting Thiel, it was kind of a light-bulb moment. I realized I could have everything I wanted here. I’m looking forward to finally being the person I’ve always wanted to be.”

    • Hannah Uschock ’22
  • “I really like the small campus and how easy it is to get to know everyone. Thiel is a community. Everyone is willing to help with anything you need. Coming to college shouldn’t be anything to be afraid of because there are so many friendly faces here.”
