    Make sure you get strong and worthy recommendation letters. Make sure your essay is very well formulated. Also make sure that your GPA and SAT scores are high.

    Get involved early in whatever student organization interests you, volunteer in Trenton and Philly. At TCNJ, we work hard and play hard so dont neglect the importance of balance between schoolwork and friendships, fun and responsibility

    Be optimistic and outgoing. Join a club or three! The experience is what you make of it. Go to the library. Go to your professors office hours, it works wonders.

    I would recommend that students put a lot of focus on studying for the SATs. TCNJ places a high value on the SAT scores of their prospective students and that is something that I wished I focused more on. For students who are planning to attend TCNJ, I would urge them to be as involved as possible their first semester since that is something I regret about my first semester.

    The professors do not like it if you are late to class so try to always be on time. And from my experience, if you are commuting to campus, if you aren't there by about 9:30am, don't even bother driving around the two commuter lots, they will be full, drive right to the parking garage. Other than that, study hard and have fun. There are so many ways to get involved on campus. Also, I have learned classes are way more enjoyable when you are prepared and not worried about being called on and not knowing the answer.
