The College of New Jersey, abbreviated TCNJ, formerly Trenton State College, is a public, coeducational university located in Ewing Township, New Jersey, a northern suburb of Trenton. Established in 1855 by an act of the New Jersey Legislature, the institution was the first normal school in the state of New Jersey and the fifth in the United States. Originally located in Trenton proper, the college was moved to its present location during the early to mid-1930s. Since its inception, TCNJ has undergone several name changes, the most recent being the controversial 1996 change to its current name, from Trenton State College. US News and World Reports ranks The College of New Jersey as the top master's degree level public university in the Northern United States, while Barron's Educational Series Profiles of American Colleges lists the college among its 75 "Most Competitive" institutions. The college is also notable for its quality of life; it currently ranks 7th in The Princeton Review's "Happiest Students" list, and features a first-year retention rate of 95%. TCNJ is organized into seven schools, all of which offer four-year bachelor's degree programs, and several of which offer master's degree programs. In Fall 2004, TCNJ became the first public institution in the United States to use a four credit course system, in which students typically take four classes per semester, as opposed to the three credit system used by the majority of institutions at the time. Furthermore, a great deal of emphasis is placed on liberal arts education via the college's general education requirements.
