I am currently attending The College of New Jersey and I absolutely love it. I lived on campus for one year and now I commute from my home in Northern NJ. Since my first major is Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and my second Psychology, I have mainly spent my time in the Education Building and the Social Sciences Building. The professors here are incredibly intelligent and love to get to know the students as more than just a number. This is mainly due to the small class sizes, which I believe is one of the benefits of this institution. The professors are willing to work with you outside of class because they truly value your understanding of the subjects. I am continuously motivated to become a future educator by the professors that I have had and I can't wait to continue on in this career. I always feel safe when I am on campus and although the food isn't amazing, it is much better than other colleges that I have visited! Overall, I love TCNJ and I'm happy to be here!
Review The College of New Jersey
As a senior English Secondary Education major at TCNJ, I can assure you that the academic experience is amazing. With the exception of the liberal learning classes (which do not count toward your major, but must be taken to graduate), my teachers have been highly experienced and have taught the course material effectively and with passion. However, this is a suitcase school, so almost everyone leaves on the weekends. Also, as a Latina, my culture is almost non-existent and it was definitely a culture shock going from a diverse, poor community to an affluent White (and some Asian) one. Overall, this small campus is beautiful and academically challenging, but is seriously lacking in diversity and social opportunities outside of a fraternity/sorority.
Im a transfer student in my senior year at TCNJ, and my only regret is not coming here directly after high school. Ive made so many friends, had the opportunity to do research, have an internship, join a sports team, greek life, and meet so many people. TCNJ is an amazing school with so much opportunity waiting for its students to take part in. Get in and succeed!
