Love, grow, graduate, and give back
College is your time to experience, to gain experience, and to develop a sense of who you are to become. At Thiel College, you can become the best version of you. Founded in 1866 as a coeducational institution, Thiel is a creative and energetic place, rooted in academic excellence, innovation, tradition, and inclusion. It’s a place where the connections you make will benefit your life for years to come!
Tradition and innovation
Throughout its history, Thiel has striven to be progressive while honoring the traditions that make it special. The College’s second graduating class reflects those ideals. That class included four women and made the College in Greenville, Pennsylvania, among the earliest institutions to be coeducational. Today, Thiel remains a college of opportunity and gives you the tools to explore your faith while combining your passions and purpose.
Where memories are made and futures begin
At Thiel, you’re part of a diverse community of students who come together to experience the world. You can hang out with friends in the Bistro, enjoy a one-on-one connection with professors who know you by name, and make lifelong connections. These are just some of the college memories you will make and take with you!
Fast-track to success
New graduate programs in Business Administration, Speech-Language Pathology, and Physician Assistant Studies are set up so undergraduate students can combine their work and graduate with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years!
