3 College Senior

Campus Housing: when compared to many other schools in the area, housing options aren't too bad; freshmen dorms or what they are but its really about the experience

Greek Life: super clique and exclusive; feels many the organizations use their philanthropies as a cover-up

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I LOVE TCNJ AND WILL MISS IT SO MUCH WHEN I LEAVE

4 College Senior

Athletics: we have a high level of performance of athletics at our school, but not all teams are appreciated as they should be. some teams get more credit than others who are actually more successful on campus

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus! I have never had a bad experience and there are lights around campus that you can hit if you feel insafe and camous police will report to where you are immediately! This makes me feel even more safe. There are always campus police around campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Recently, TCNJ has addend campus town with living space above them with full kitchens and bathrooms along with the apartnents and town houses next to them. All of these buildings are of a nice size and well maintained. All living facilities are very close to all classes and eating facilities.

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life, but many students here are. I feel that it is pretty easy to get into for the most part and non-Greeks and Greeks definitly get along...no hard feelings between them!

Athletics: Many sports are offered at TCNJ, however, we do not revolve around sports. We have multiple gyms on campus which get used a lot! Sporting events are fun to attend, however none of our sports are over the top.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love TCNJ! As a transfer student from a community college, I felt welcomed by everyone! The professors here really do care about your learning and success! I am so happy i chose to come here over the other schools i applied to! Plus...multiple Starbucks on campus :)

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel absolutely safe on campus. To me it is not a harmful environment at all. I've walked around campus at times like 2am and have felt completely fine. I wouldn't say the same for girls however. At least the girls I know. They do not feel safe like I do. They would rather have someone walk with them if it is dark outside, and would certainly never be outside at ridiculous times like I have been.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I've had are just that, professors. You sit, they come, they teach, you listen, everyone leaves, rinse and repeat. I have had a few that are a bit more interesting though. One that comes to mind is my U.S. Race Relations professor. The manner in which he taught almost made the subject matter feel mysterious. Then, he'd drop the bombshell on you and everything would make sense, but the way he shed light on things made you feel shocked. Obviously, not many professors would be able to emulate that style, but I do believe classes would be more interesting if more teachers taught like him.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Last year (freshman year) was great because even though we weren't enjoying the highest quality of living, the social atmosphere of living in the towers (freshman dorms) more than made up for it. This year is very different. Socializing is not a part of the sophomore living experience at TCNJ. The floors are dead quiet, which makes them dull, and because of that you end up spending a lot more time in your room.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not very involved in athletics. It doesn't seem to be a huge part of TCNJ's culture. The only time there is campus-wide hype surrounding athletics is homecoming.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: TCNJ gives its students a quality education

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There are always police paroling the campus and there are emergency lights located around the campus and in dorm buildings.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are pretty good and care about there students but you always get one or two that aren't so great. There are a wide variety of classes that you can take but many of the more popular options get filled quickly by upperclassmen.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know many people utilize the student center for internship and job opportunities. I have heard many people recieve jobs after graduation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Many different housing options to chose from and many dorms are renovated. Freshman dorms do not have A/C which is a downside

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Many parties are hosted by Greek life; however, there is no push to join and it is not overbearing.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Attending games isn't a must but many still go. many people also participate in intramural or club sports. There is also a newly built gym.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its a great school, both the students and professors are respectful and so far the learning experience has been wonderful. Class sizes are small so you really get to know your classmates and professor well.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My job requires me to work late nights, sometimes from 9:00 to 11:30, which means I will be walking home on campus in the dark. There has never been a time walking home in which I did not feel safe. Cops are always patrolling the campus, and the blue emergency lights are always in sight, so I never feel the need to worry.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes at TCNJ are very small, therefore they are close-knit. I made my best friends in my classes, and the professors helped created the atmosphere in which I could voice my opinion and not be afraid of speaking up. There are tons of different classes where you can discover yourself in ways you never thought you would.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center always has events going on, whether it be for resume critiques or mock job interviews, they are prepared to help get us students into the real world. I am looking forward to working with them as the years pass here and I get closer to becoming an Art Teacher.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When you are a first year student, it is quite common to have not the best housing. I live in the towers, and its not bad but its not great. There is no wifi or A/C, but the co-ed floors are great. You learn to mingle with the opposite sex, which you will have to do in the real world. The bathrooms are better than I expected too, they are cleaned almost everyday.

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.
