A Liberal Learning Curriculum ensures that all students are grounded in the values of civic responsibility, intellectual and scholarly growth, and that they receive a well-rounded education in the liberal arts. All courses have been transformed and contain a significant out-of-class requirement that provides for even more student and faculty interaction. These small classes enable dialog between students and with TCNJ's accomplished teaching staff. This staff is composed of professors with terminal degrees in exclusivity; no courses are taught by graduate students or Teacher's Assistants. The College shapes its curricula and educational experiences around the concept of personalized, collaborative, and rigorous intellectual development.
More than 200 student organizations flourish at The College. Anyone can find an intramural sports team, Greek organization, cultural club, or academic group to suit his or her interests. Many students build friendships and optimize their leisure time participating in these groups. In addition, the College Union Board-administered by TCNJ students-organizes events, including concerts, performances, and comedy nights.
The College's highly successful Division III athletic programs also provide an opportunity to socialize and cheer on fellow classmates. TCNJ fields ten sports for men and ten for women. For those looking for something a little less competitive, intramural and club sports, including flag football, volleyball, softball, floor hockey, and basketball, have thriving coed leagues of their own. Intramural and club teams play in state, regional, and national tournaments.
