Homecoming is a special campus wide event that brings together alumni, students, parents, friends and the campus community. The Homecoming Steering Committee* is excited to offer festivities that everyone can enjoy. No matter how far away you may live now, returning to TCNJ is definitely worth the trip. We look forward to seeing you, wearing your blue and gold!

*The Steering Committee, created in Spring 2014, includes leaders from Alumni Affairs, the Alumni Association, Student Affairs, Student Leaders, Student Government, Athletics and Campus Police. The Committee has been charged with evaluating and enhancing the Homecoming experience so it will continue to be enjoyable and safe for all attending.
