FALL 2021 INFORMATION

The Fall 2021 Student Government Elections are approaching quickly and we want YOU to become a part of our organization. This upcoming fall election determines your Student Government representatives for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Student Government opens the doors to many opportunities at TCNJ and helps develop you into a student leader who can make a difference both on and off campus. Our current members have already taken on leadership roles by representing all TCNJ students and serving the campus and the community around us through different services and programs. Additionally, our members serve as a liaison between you and the administration to grant you a strong voice in our school’s policy development. Grow as an individual and alongside a team of like-minded students, develop yourself professionally, and engage with faculty and staff to make decisions that improve campus and college life for you and your peers. Come and make your goals a reality!
