We know you have questions.

We’ve answered some common questions about our virtual events.

What does a virtual Alumni Weekend look like?

We are pleased to offer virtual TCNJ traditions and activities for alumni worldwide without the logistics or travel costs. You’re in for a weekend of events designed to connect TCNJ alumni and students from around the globe. While we can’t wait to welcome you back to campus in the future, we are excited to celebrate with you virtually this spring.

Do I need to register for virtual Alumni Weekend events?

We highly recommend pre-registering for events to receive meeting links and reminders via email. If you forget to register, don’t worry — you’ll still be able to join most events. However, you must register by April 9 for our paint and sip class on Saturday, April 24, at 6 p.m.

Do I need a Zoom account to participate?

No, an account is not required to join Zoom meetings as a participant. However, you can set up a free Zoom account if you’d prefer.

Are these events free?

Yes, most virtual Alumni Weekend events are free to attend. There is a cost for materials for the paint and sip class on Saturday, April 24.

Do I need a webcam to participate?

While we encourage all attendees to turn on a webcam during our virtual events, it is not required. You will not be able to transmit video of yourself without one, but you will be able to listen, speak, and view other participants.

How can I purchase TSC/TCNJ gear?

How can I support the college during this time?

A gift of any size can make all the difference for a student this year. Your gift will help TCNJ’s rigorous education, inclusive community, and rich experiences remain accessible for new generations of learners. You can designate where you’d like your donation to be applied. Simply indicate a school, program, facility, or area of interest. You can also choose the general TCNJ Fund to ensure your gift supports the college’s key initiatives. Make your gift online today.

Zoom Etiquette

We encourage you to keep your cameras on and mute yourself when you aren’t talking to avoid excess background noise.
