It’s been a long summer…Did you forget where the Business Building is? Never fear, Collegiettes™! This week’s Campus Cutie (and the first CC of the 2011-2012 school year!) can help lead the way. When Dennis DeBernardis, Junior Bio major and TCNJ ambassador, isn’t giving tours of campus you can probably find him in Alumni Grove hanging out with his fellow Sigma Pi brothers. With classes starting this Thursday, you might want to feign getting lost just to let this Campus Cutie walk you to your first class ;) .

Why did you choose to attend TCNJ? The size of the campus is exactly what I wanted and when I came on my first tour, everything from my ambassador’s great attitude to the warm and friendly vibe that exuded from all of the students captured my attention and solidified my top choice of which college I wanted to attend.
