  • Leadership & community: the opportunity to serve on the Honors & Scholars Student Advisory Board and Honors & Scholars Council, and to represent the Program at Lions Day recruitment events
  • Academics: the opportunity to take courses available only to other Honors students, as well as pursue your own intellectual interests through options such as Honors-by-Contract and the Honors & Scholars Research Project

TCNJ’s Honors & Scholars Program is what our students and faculty make of it.
