Favorite TCNJ Memory:

My favorite TCNJ memory is the time I spent in Dr.Graham’s Social Emotional Learning Developmental Lab (SELD) as a Research Assistant! He’s an amazing professor and I loved that our work was directly related to the Trenton/Ewing area as we would go into their elementary schools and work with the children 🙂

One Piece of Advice for Prospective Students: 

My piece of advice is to always be open to new opportunities, say yes more than you say no! You have an opportunity to “start again” when going to college so make sure to join clubs, talk to strangers even if you’re nervous, go to class (you skip one time and then you’ll be skipping all the time haha) and always be open to new experiences!
