currently a freshman at tcnj, would only recommend if being in state is important to you. really boring on the weekends unless you want to spend like $10 to go to a crappy frat party. it is basically like high school all over again in the social sense. that being said, the academics are challenging and if you want a good job within NJ it's a good school. was not my first choice and am transferring after next semester. i only go here because my parents basically forced me because it is less expensive.

Don't get my wrong, I LOVE the academic side of TCNJ. Going to a small school allows professors to truly care about you. I feel like i am being challenged the right about, but am not too overwhelmed. On the other hand, I HATE the social aspect of this school. If you are not in greek like, then you don't have a life. And I am not the type of person to pay to make friends and party. Although I wish i was because this school is making me depressed. A lot of people go home on the weekends and I can't blame them because there is literally nothing to do. People here either party like crazy or are extremely weird. There is no middle ground. I read comments about TCNJ's social life before I came here, and I honestly wish that I listened. Now it is too late. I am not getting the college experience here and I deeply regret coming here.

Overall friendly environment. I remember before entering the school hearing that no one parties at all, which is not true at all, because it's a college. It's obviously nothing like Rutgers but greek life is definitely present (though not overwhelmingly) and there are always parties to go to. There isn't really much to do in Ewing, but if you have a car, there are places nearby that are cool to go to, like New Hope or Princeton. Most of the full time faculty members I've encountered have been incredible professors, but the level of quality varies much more amongst the adjunct professors, but I'd imagine most schools are like that.
