The College of New Jersey Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (14)
The College of New Jersey was a challenging school with very compassionate professors that would always find time to talk or assist you in any way possible. The education department was beyond my wildest dreams! The classes prepared me for my career (elementary education) and how to obtain the career with mock interviews with principals from local schools.
The best part of the education program at TCNJ is that starting sophomore year, you are inside the classroom doing projects and learning from teachers. I was placed in kindergarten, first grade, and third grade for practicum and first grade for student teaching which gave me a great view of elementary grades. My professors really cared about all their students and all but one took time out of their day to help me to succeed outside of classroom hours. They really want you to succeed because your success will turn into your future students successes. Although they did an amazing job of preparing me for classroom teaching, they failed to focus in on all the extras that teachers must do. The meetings, professional development, paperwork including IEPs/504s, and more. As far as being ready inside the classroom, I was very well prepared but it was those few but important things outside the classroom that I was not prepared for.
The College of New Jersey is uniquely situated as a public, liberal arts college. It's dedication to its students is obvious through it's beautiful campus and amazing professors. I am forever grateful for my education and overall experience at TCNJ. I majored in psychology and a minor in women's and gender studies and found many new worlds opened to me through my classes. Wonderful place.
TCNJ is a excellent school with a very supportive student community and interactive faculty. The campus is a great place to live and learn, and there are many activities and groups to get involved with. There is a very homey feel to the historic and beautiful campus that provides an ideal place to learn and grow.
The College of New Jersey is a very competitive but friendly environment. Wonderful professors, staff, and resources. Would highly recommend.
TCNJ is a very open and honest community, while the Women's and Gender Studies program emulates the same atmosphere, it also provide a space for critical reflections and intimate teaching moments. I would recommend it to all people who are challenging themselves to be a part of the movement to change this unpredictable world we live in.
Great College at an affordable price for in state tuition. I would recommend. Just make sure you get a degree that is going to make you money.
I really enjoyed my time at TCNJ. The school is beautiful, the professors are dedicated to promoting the best learning environment for their students. The students and campus have a certain culture that is so welcoming and truly add to the experience of being a student there. Even as a transfer student who lived off-campus, I always felt so connected tot he college. The psychology department is wonderful and the experience they provide for the students is one that is unique as I frequently discuss with others in the same field. I highly recommend this school especially the psychology and education program.
I feel that the Health and Exercise Science:Teaching program prepared me more than any other college could have for my position. TCNJ is a small campus, with great people, great academics, and offers a great experience. The "hot college" is rapidly growing and becoming more competitive and offering much more to its students beyond graduation. The campus is beautiful and the administration is constantly looking to improve its landscape and the attractions to its students. There is no better place in New Jersey for an affordable A+ education.
Quiet liberal arts college, certainly more of a study school than a party school. I have never had a single teacher at this school that I did not like, which is certainly a first; the permanent hires are generally better than the adjuncts though. Comfortable but small library, so take advantage of inter-library loans. The history department knows what they're doing, though I recommend taking classes that are less attractive to fulfillment of history requirements among the general population, so you can go more in-depth. Be prepared to skip sleep to read a thousand books if you take multiple history courses at once.
