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!
Hands down the best choice. Small classes are more intimate and you feel like more than just a student-- the professors actually know you by name and care about your success. Mentality is key-- if you are party/Greek life oriented, you may be adversely affected in the class room. But if you are study-oriented, you'll succeed with flying colors. Wouldn't choose any other college or campus!
The College of New Jersey is a great public college that is both academically challenging (speaking from a science major's viewpoint) and fun. I was quickly able to find a friend group that I enjoy spending time with due to the friendly environment all freshman are placed in. TCNJ has many different helpful aspects such as its career center, free tutoring program, and ambassador program. As a state school, it is a smaller than most other schools in New Jersey and yet is very highly accredited and vastly "homey". I certainly do not regret my decision to go to TCNJ and urge all considering it to at least visit and feel the friendly environment that radiates throughout the campus.
