Favorite thing about TCNJ and HSS

It’s a small school, so you see a lot of the same people and get to form a lot of friendships that way! You also get to form close bonds with your professors.

Favorite spot on campus

B&N Cafe, HSS building, Alumni Grove

Advice to new students

Don’t try to compare yourself to others. Your experience here is going to be YOUR OWN experience! Their pace is not going to be your pace, and that’s OKAY. Any moment could turn into an opportunity, so make sure you take the time to slow down and you’ll find the small things you might have been missing.
