The College of New Jersey is ranked #3 in Regional Universities North. With a student-faculty ratio of 13-1, professors are able to assist students more frequently. They are caring, helpful and want every student to succeed. There is a variety of sports, clubs, activities and organizations to choose from each semester. The campus food is very good with such a variety. The dorms are clean and well maintained. Check out Campus Town, the new addition to the school, it's amazing!

The College of New Jersey is a beautiful school full of opportunities that I would not have gotten at any other school. The biology program here at TCNJ is one of the top programs in New Jersey. After taking my introductory biology course, my professor approached me about conducting research in his lab. This would not have been possible at a different school because the class sizes at other schools are so large that the professor would have never known my name and never would have emailed me about an open position. I am now on my second year of research with this professor and I am so thankful for the opportunities TCNJ has given me.
