TCNJ's demographics are primarily Caucasian, with notable Indian, Asian, and African American minorities. Cultural groups are represented within the TCNJ campus by organizations such as the Union Latina, the Indian Student Association, the Russian Club, Chinese Cultural Club, Barkada, Asian American Association, the Polish Club, and the Central Eurasian and Middle Eastern Studies Society. There are often events hosted by these groups, such as the annual "Mystique of the East" show by the Asian American Association, Barkada, and the Indian Student Association. There are also lifestyle organizations such as TCNJ's PRISM for, but not limited to, TCNJ's gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. Most of the students are within the 18-through-21 age range, and most graduate within four years. While there are some students that stay longer for their majors or for time abroad, the number of nontraditional students is remarkably low.
As for religion, TCNJ is diverse, although the majority of students seems to be Christian (non-Catholic) and Catholic. There are sizeable Muslim and Hindu minorities, and many faith-based organizations exist such as Hillel and the Catholic Campus Ministry. There are also atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers. Political views at TCNJ are largely liberal. However, compared to other state schools, TCNJ is relatively politically apathetic, even though both liberal-minded students and more conservative students have organizations that offer activities.
