Welcome to the TCNJ Here for Home Campaign website. We represent The College of New Jersey’s relief efforts following Hurricane Sandy. In the aftermath of one of the worst storms that has ever hit the State of New Jersey, students, staff and faculty at TCNJ have come together to address the many needs of their home state. TCNJ, in its mission to be a national exemplar in the education of those who seek to sustain and advance the communities in which they live, is dedicated to helping the State of New Jersey recover and grow following the storm.
