3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle runs about four days a week with multiple times. The major problem is that the bus has a limited amount of seats so students do not always make the bus. Public transportation is the NJ Transit bus which frequently visits campus and always has seats available.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not get involved in off-campus housing. Students can choose to get off-campus housing and after that the school generally walks away. There are plenty of houses in the area for students to get housing but sometimes it is difficult to round up enough people to fill a house and the housing can be near bad areas. The houses themselves are usually in good condition and the landlords seem nice enough.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The practicums at the school are wonderful for an Education major. Students are placed in a wide variety of schools and they are supported throughout the entire experience by their professors. The education classes are nice, covering topics I had never realized were relevant to education.

4 College Junior

Majors: The Health & Phys. Ed major is challenging but great. Health & PE majors from TCNJ usually have an easier time finding jobs.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic fields are great. However, the locker rooms and weight rooms are terrible.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus is very strict about alcohol and drugs. This is great because it creates a safer learning environment.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: As a commuter, I live at home with my parents.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining for TCNJ students is pretty good. There are a lot of cheap fast food places, convenient stores, and privately own restaurants. There is a wide variety of foods to eat. I am very satisfied with the off-campus dining.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: I don't really know much about rule enforcement at the school. I have never been in trouble with the campus safety and I have never witnessed someone in trouble.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The majority of professors are great teachers. There are a couple who lack good communication skills in their teaching subject.

The study areas are great. There are a variety to chose from, depending on a student's wants and needs.

Recent Alumnus

1 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Nothing to do here. Residents hate college students.

Off-Campus Housing: Some parts of town are very unsafe others are very nice. Landlords tend to rip people off and not repair things when needed. Don't bother moving off campus unless you have too.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: TCNJ police is a lot better than Ewing's police!

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.
