3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the campus housing we have is really great like Eickhoff dorms. They practically are like hotel rooms. However my freshman year living in Centennial hall was dirty, old and small. Centennial was a nightmare. I guess it really comes down to where you are.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: TCNJ is a great school for gifted students who want to be successful however I have found its downsides. My freshman year was nothing like I thought it would be. I ran into many difficulties involving peers and found many students to be snobby and rude. But then again, what do you expect when you go to a school known for its academics? My professors have been outstanding and the school itself is quite a site to see. I'm confident TCNJ is setting me up for a great career. As for the people, there are always a few diamonds in the rough.

Athletics: One thing I wish The College of New Jersey had is a bigger campus wide spirit on athletics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The College of New Jersey embodies a community of diverse intellectual, outgoing, and happy individuals who bring out the best in their peers. The sense of unity is apparent at each corner of campus. The professors at TCNJ not only excel as teachers but also serve as mentors and companions. It is a great feeling to be able to raise my hand in a small scale classroom to then have my question acknowledged and answered with a professor's undivided attention.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a big thing here. They throw great parties and events, but it's nbd if you're not involved.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: You don't come to TCNJ for the sports. Students are very dedicated to their sport, but no one else really cares.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love TCNJ! The students are passionate and excited about learning, which makes for an excellent academic atmosphere. We put academics first and treat extra-curriculars with the same drive and attention.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many of the professors are experts in what they teach and express enthusiasm for her subject, but every once in a while you get a professor who doesn't care much about the class.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lots of job fairs and connections within the school that open the door to internships and jobs for students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety is taken pretty seriously. Campus walkways are well lit and the blue light system is employed all over campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As a freshman students mainly live in Wolfe or Travers. Honors students usually live in Cent. I lived in Wolfe. It,s a pretty tight space but if you and your roommate are cooperative(and neat) you can fit some extra furniture to make the room more livable. There are designated quiet hours but the promotion of a social atmosphere usually leads to the space being loud.. quietest times are when people are at meal equiv/dinner/class. No air conditioning but keep your windows open in winter because man do they abuse the heating system. Also communal bathrooms are cleaned everyday and weren't as bad as I expected.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Different Sororities and Fraternities at TCNJ have different levels of stress that come along with them. Some of the Greeks are super present on campus while others are in the background, and some have very difficult rushes compared to others. Some, like ZTA tend to be viewed very negatively by non-greek students while others are not really talked about at all. Most sororities and frats have a house of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't have any interest in our college's sports, but there are club versions of most of the sports and sports teams both club and official throw most of the non-greek life parties

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think my favorite part of tcnj is the classic college vibe, plus the attitude of the workers in the meal hall and t-dubs. I mainly chose this school for the price and because my parents are alumni, but even with out those reasons I would choose it again and be happy.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I do not have much experience with the athletics department within the school.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I know TCNJ is a great choice for someone like myself who is pursuing a career within the field of education. The professors as well as the deans of the department are actively working to ensure that graduates have somewhere to go after they have finished with school.

Additionally, the professors are very passionate about what they teach, will makes the learning environment more engaging and enjoyable for the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center on campus offers great assistance to students by helping them gain success in their majors and, most importantly, in the prospective fields that they will soon be working and apart of. They help with things such as proper interview etiquette and proper formatting of a résumé.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students feel safe ad comfortable when getting around on campus or when they are in a dorm or academic building. Additionally, students are very trustworthy when it comes to other's belongings and personal items.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on the college's campus is like a home away from home. It is easy for students to accommodate themselves in the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The college's athletics are enjoyed by the students, however it is not a huge aspect of the college's campus life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My college consists of a close-knit community of students who support each other physically, mentally, and academically.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience with my courses and professors have been great. The professors make sure that the students understand the material and the lessons being taught. If students need any help with the course lessons, the professors are always available and eager to help. The courses are very interesting and fun to learn about.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are always recruiters coming to the school, looking for potential students to intern. The career center offer several advice and new job postings to the students. It is very easy to get an internship or job with the help of the career center and the school overall.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very secure on campus. The campus police make sure all students are safe. In addition, it is very difficult for stranger or non-students to get into the residence buildings.

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.
