4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are Campus Policemen and women all over campus at all times. And with the click of a button you can have any assistance that you may need at your doorstep in just a few minutes. Also, if you were to ever feel unsafe, Campus PD are more than happy to walk you home at night.

Overall Experience: Professors care about their students success, some more than others. It is very easy to get in contact with them when you need to and because of the smaller class size, they actually treat you like they know you. I was a nursing major and for the first week, I thought I had a great handle on things, but I was very wrong. The upper classmen nursing majors were not lying when they said I was going to either give up my social life or die trying to succeed. I almost died... lol. Regardless, if you are pursuing something you really care about with a great mindset then you will be able to succeed without a doubt!!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Unlike most freshman at TCNJ who live in the Towers, I lived in ABE. I felt that our dorm was much more homey and we all became a big family very quick. It also had a great location being right in front of Eick, the lib, and the C-store! I loved everything about ABE.

Greek Life: Although non-greeks have their opinions, the greeks are great and they do great things for their community. They are very friendly, but also a little bit cliquey. I did not have any problem getting along with all of the sororities! I did not rush, but I have many friends at TCNJ that did and I will definitely rush in the Fall!

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There is not much school spirit and that is something that is very important to me. I will be transferring to a school where school spirit and football are a huge part of the campus life.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: TCNJ is an great school and I met some of the best people that I now consider to be some of my best friends. I had an awful semester due to increased stress and anxiety which led to sleep deprivation which then caused me to give up. I will not be returning to TCNJ next semester in order to start fresh, but the school itself is perfect for anyone who would like a small school that has a great balance between having fun and being challenged.

Overall Experience: I love TCNJ and so proud to be enrolled in this school!! I have met so many great people and my professors are awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: TCNJ has a high % of students who graduate going into their desired field since it is a strong academic school.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love where I live! everywhere around campus is a short walking distance away (for my standards, at least) and I love getting the exercise. However, my dorm also provides a nice place to hang out

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: TCNJ is not D1 but the sports teams are good for our division. Only reason I am not giving 5/5 is because of the fact I sometimes feel like I am losing out on some college experience by not being big into football games

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: About to start my junior year at TCNJ, and I love this school! It has been my dream school since freshmen year in HS and have no doubts or regrets about choosing to enroll here. Go Lions!

3 College Junior

Athletics: When I was an active track participant, I noticed that not many students and staff attend the sports events that are held on campus. During high school, I remember students and faculty always showing face at all of the home football games, soccer games, field hockey games etc. I went to a regional high school with over 2000 students and I would say that the turn out for those events was significantly better than any of the events at TCNJ. Part of this has to do with the fact that the training facilities are completely out of date and need to be revamped. I truly think the better facilities would boost team morale, as well as encourage campus inhabitants to attend the games more often.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As skeptical as I was about attending a smaller university, TCNJ has definitely made a positive impact on my life thus far. Between sports teams, joining a sorority, and my academics, I would say that I have immersed in the overall college experience. I have been able to experience college as a varsity student-athlete for my first three semesters of my college career, which educated me on the importance of time management. I am now an active member of the Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority Beta Xi Chapter at TCNJ and hold active positions within the organization. I am also an active participant of the Club Women's Rugby Team at the university as well. I am an accounting major and take pride in the fact that the college has such a reputable business program that has assisted me in acquiring an internship for summer 2016 at Grant Thornton LLP. Overall, I have been very happy with my choice to attend one of the top universities in New Jersey.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
