The transition of our new incoming students each year is an “all hands on deck” effort, with hundreds of individuals in various divisions across campus coming together to support you! One of the most important roles is our Student Transition Leaders, a team of approximately 70-75 upperclassmen who will help answer questions and ease concerns you have about starting at TCNJ this fall. Our Orientation Leaders work exclusively with incoming first-year and provisional students while our Griffins work with the incoming transfers (having been previous transfer students themselves!)

Interested in becoming an Orientation Leader or Griffin next year? Get on our list, and read below for more details!
