Alumni Stories

Peter H. Brown ’83
Procurement Technician at the Dept. of Defense - Office of Inspector General, Alexandria, Va.

“Thiel College had professors who cared and took time to meet with students. The business and economics faculty made an impression on me and their encouragement is part of the reason I received an MBA degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Students benefit from Thiel’s liberal arts education because the underlying communications and math skills increase the ability to perform most work tasks. The writing, math, and oral communication areas are used in any job.”

  • Major: Business Administration
Eleanor G. Belleau ’12
Staff Accountant at Ernst & Young

“When it comes to preparing for and pursuing a professional career, accessibility to your professors and constant communication is key. Thiel makes this possible. The [department] promoted the idea of networking in each of my courses. They [encouraged] each student to take advantage of and reach out to alumni and other professionals who make themselves available to the College. I find it important that so many people find their way back to Thiel, always looking for a way to give back.”
