Favorite thing about TCNJ and HSS

All of the opportunities to make friends and network with staff.

Favorite spot on campus

Advice to new students

Speak UP! Being your own advocate in college and number one supporter is important. Communication is key and your voice, ideas and thoughts hold power. Never be afraid to be the person who breaks the silence in class or be the first one to say you like a club or give your opinion.
