Favorite thing about TCNJ and HSS

I love all the people I have met through HSS both friends and professors! I have made some of my best friends within this college <3

Favorite spot on campus

I love going to the third and fourth floor of the lib to study. You will always either find me there with an iced matcha latte.

Advice to new students

Don’t be afraid to approach random people. Some of my best friends are people who I have complimented and now are super close with. Go out there, get uncomfortable, and don’t be afraid to be unapologetically yourself. There will ALWAYS be people there for you!!!
