What is your overall opinion of this school?

TCNJ is not exactly a party school for me. It is where everyone tries to be a community and nice to each other. Freshman year was when everyone started becoming very close friends and having fun together. Welcome week helped us bond because it was like a summer camp experience. It feels very safe and there are a lot of things to do on and off campus. It is easy to travel by bus or train and upperclassmen have cars.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It took a few weeks, but I love this school. As a person of color, it can be challenging having to be on a campus where there are not that many people with the same background/culture. It took some time to adjust to the school environment since it is not very diverse. However, there are numerous of clubs and events to attend where people can make friends. I feel like I belong on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

TCNJ is a great school, small and close knit, but a great school nonetheless. It is pretty exclusive for a public university, you need really good grades and an overall excellent applications which is different from many of the other public universities in the area and state. The facilities are nice for the most part, although the dorms are lackluster. The freshman dorms are all equally crummy, each has its own flaws. The upperclassman dorms are unequal, with some (Eick and New Res) being far superior to the other options. Academics are excellent, and there are many social groups on campus. Sororities and fraternities have a presence on campus, although they are not overwhelming or direly important. There is very little to do in the area, it's necessary to take a bus or drive to find entertainment although the school does its best to have activities on campus to remedy that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College of New Jersey provides a place where you can find yourself. The campus offers an array of activities for students to expand their current interests and discover new ones. The dining services supply more than enough healthy food to ensure a student never goes hungry or is forced to consume unhealthy alternatives. A majority of the campus works out and keeps themselves in shape. The classes are demanding but rewarding.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College of New Jersey has a very small student-teacher ratio which I appreciate in many ways. The academics seem alright but since I am one of the few students who has just recently joined their new Public Health program, I feel like the curriculum good definitely be better. In addition, a lack of diversity is also highly prevalent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school focused on academics. Students at The College of New Jersey can best be summed up as kids who come from a humble upbringing who worked extremely hard in high school. Although most students got into some of the best schools in the country, often the price tag restricted them so they came to a competitive low priced state school. All students I meet are humble and focuses on academics and I have yet to meet a unintelligent or rude student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College of New Jersey is a great school for people of different backgrounds and interests, and you would be hard pressed to find a school in New Jersey that provides a better education. The small class sizes and qualified professors make the courses interesting and engaging, especially since there are no TAs. Being a liberal arts college, the school is dedicated to providing students with a well rounded education. There is also a multitude of extracurricular activities and sports that will satisfy anyone's interests. On a typical weekend, it is easy to find things to do with your friends since most organizations will have events. There are usually sports games going on too, but these are not very popular among the students. The immediate surrounding area off-campus does not offer much in terms of things to do, but a short drive to Princeton can fix that. The campus as a whole is very friendly and beautiful, thanks to the old-fashioned brick aesthetic of the buildings. Walking through campus in the fall is one of favorite things to do, since the trees and the buildings are gorgeous. No matter where you come from, you can find a home at the College of New Jersey. I could not be more pleased with my decision to attend the College of New Jersey and I can not imagine myself anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College of New Jersey is a very community-oriented school. Upon visiting the very first time, I felt like I was at home. TCNJ is a place where almost everyone is warm and inviting. I've never seen another school like it. Students share this common bond, and as cliche as it sounds, our campus is built on kindness and involvement, which develops our strong sense of community.
