Guys & Girls: In this school, average 6/7 out of 10 becomes 8 or 9 and it makes you feel attractive. But once you go outside of TCNJ, youre average. It's really hard to see attractive and fun people here

Diversity: there are few minorities but student body is homogeneous

3 College Junior

Computers: Its okay except that there is no wifi in freshman dorms and wifi doesnt work a lot of the times

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The alcohol scene is normally off campus. The college houses are blocks away and students are provided rides by the people who host them. If you don't drink, nobody holds it against you. Everyone does their own thing and everyone generally accepts their decisions.

Diversity: The school makes efforts to have diversity and they are on their way to having more. There are multiple ethnicity-based clubs and organizations on campus. Different sexual orientations are accepted on campus. Political affiliations are overwhelming on the liberal side and most professors do not smile when conservative groups and beliefs are mentioned.

Campus Housing: The worst thing about housing is the lottery system. Underclassmen are guaranteed but after that it's all up in the air. Rooming conflicts are either solved by mediation or someone moving out. The dorms are nice but cleanliness depends on the people living on the floor. The dorms are close to classes.

Parking: Parking is fine if you pay for a permit. You get a specific parking lot which is first come first serve. The police are strict with ticketing and fines. There are lots that are free to park on the weekends which is great for visitors.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not very involved in the athletics scene. Most people do enjoy sports on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Most off-campus cuisine is in nearby towns. Transportation is necessary to get to them but there are lots of options and something for almost everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Being a small campus, weather is relatively important. Most people walk to class so it means you should be prepared for the weather when you leave your dorm;

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Computers are available at the library and there are plenty of computer labs. However, the wireless connections on campus and even ethernet connections are spotty. They work about half the time and can be difficult to deal with. You have a certain amount of free copies and prints at the school printer which is nice.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The Education program at school is wonderful. The professors are nice, willing to work with you, and are extremely intelligent. There is no problem getting into their classes. However, content area (such as English or Math) programs can be difficult. As you progress in your major there are fewer classes offered so picking classes can be a bit of a struggle. The professors vary in their performance. There are great professors with manageable workloads and good curriculums but the opposite is also true.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet applied for an internship.

Success at TCNJ is a matter of personal motivation and work. Thus, it is appropriate to say that a student gets what he or she makes of it. There are excellent professors at TCNJ, abundant resources, and a student-centered atmosphere ripe for the picking. Opportunities to study abroad, great lab materials, and helpful advisers among other things make TCNJ stand out as a top school in the state of New Jersey. While it is mainly academic- and achievement-oriented, TCNJ offers plenty of opportunities for networking and socialization.

The school's curriculum and comprehensive, student-focused professorial approach not only gives students the information they need, but it also helps them develop expanded skills to digest important information and engage in a dialogue. The information in classes is engaging and important to the student's life—not just a matter of memorization. This conceptual understanding is underlined by the emphasis on students pushing hard and learning topics on their own, in addition to classwork. While each college caters to a personality, any student can adapt to the TCNJ ethic. The school's style of education helps tremendously and allows for new perspectives on matters in life. It is truly not just an academic experience, but one of maturation and character development.
