College does change an individual, and I certainly am no exception. I went to TCNJ expecting to gain better writing skills and become immersed in learning about the journalistic world. In actuality, the real learning came from outside the classroom (may sound a tad cliche' but alas it is true). I came out of freshman year having learned valuable social skills, talents and how to live on my own. Most importantly, I learned to believe in myself. Oh, and I did learn about journalism.

    TCNJ is what I'd consider to be my home. I've met a lot of amazing students as well as staff members who have been making my experience here awesome. The courses can at times be challenging however, TCNJ has a very supportive and helping community.

    The College of New Jersey is not only highly respected for it's academics, but also for the beautiful atmosphere it provides. I was a transfer student from Brookdale Community College, and although the transition was night and day, TCNJ feels like home. The campus is beautiful also, which is also a plus!

    A small college that has reached the 50 best colleges/universities in America. Not that well known but it is a really great school at a very cheap price. Students who want to become teachers should go here because it is known as a great school for education and english majors.

    While The College of New Jersey is considered one of the top public colleges on the East Coast, I've found the college to provide the same level of academic quality as a community college. That being said, the college has a beautiful campus and most professors are very approachable and friendly. Though I've had my share of problems finding a friend in this predominantly Caucasian and cliquish community, I've enjoyed my time in the English and Women and Gender Studies department!
