A Supportive Community

When you choose St. Thomas, you are joining a tight-knit, diverse, and welcoming community that will support you from Welcome Week to graduation.

Our 1,800 students come from more than 35 countries.


Smaller is Better

Our size is one of our biggest strengths. It’s what allows us to provide a meaningful, personalized student experience.

You will learn in small classes that allow you to get to know your professors and peers. This will give you more opportunities to engage in discussion and debate and will create a safe, supportive learning environment.
