3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: not super strict but some things can get annoying

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: My friends and I were often very loud in the hallways during quiet hours and we got away with warnings a lot but if other people were ever drinking on the floor and a CA saw them, they wrote it up and the kids would have to meet with a committee.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: its not good and not bad either. it's right smack in the middle

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I believe that the school could be slightly stricter in regards to things such as attendance, and who they allow to be student employees as some people look the other way in times of misconduct a lot. However, the school is very strict with important things such as drugs, alcohol, violence etc.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The college rules are strict where needed, such as situations related to underage drinking, drug abuse, etc. Also, there are many programs available for help.

TCNJ is generally a safe campus, due to the efficiency of its campus police department and the relative size of the campus. There are call-boxes placed conveniently around campus and police patrols that ensure the safety of students. Violent crime is severely punished in accordance to TCNJ campus and state laws. TCNJ's academic laws punish those who commit a slew of acts considered academically dishonest, such as plagiarism, falsification of work, stealing, cheating in exams, copying the work of others, and other acts of similarity described in TCNJ's Academic Integrity Policy. Students who break the code can face academic probation, expulsion, and further legal consequences. 

TCNJ's campus laws regarding alcohol and illicit drug use are also strict, with TCNJ's Alcohol & Drug Education Program (ADEP) offering services to both educate students and members of organizations as well as connect them to rehabilitative services off campus. Breaking drug and alcohol laws can result in loss of residence, being arrested, and other legal consequences. Finally, TCNJ's campus police are also rather strict in implementing parking and traffic violations. Due to its small size relative to the amount of commuters and car owners on campus, TCNJ police work to keep the parking lots and campus roads safe, especially during daily rush hours.
