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!

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.
