a current student here
Though it is very expensive, I think it is worth it. Everyone on campus is very friendly, and you get the feeling that you aren't just a student, they really care about you. There is a 1 to 12 faculty student ratio, and that makes it great for out of class help. Also, despite being small, there is an activity on campus for everyone, including religious clubs, shooting clubs, writing and arts clubs, greek life, and intramurals. Thiel's sponsored activities are amazing too. And every class is allowed on field trip per semester, so in my first year I went bowling and to the Cleveland Art Museum, both paid for by Thiel. I know in the future I will go to the Zoo, again to the museum, and on many more trips.
