TCNJ looks to next 150 years

TCNJ looks to next 150 years: "EWING - When Bob Schmidt graduated in 1955 from Trenton State Teachers' College, the one-building campus was readying itself for construction of a second facility - its first dormitory.

'They built that Centennial Hall as the first dormitory back then,' said Schmidt, a former educator who retired as assistant superintendent in Willingboro. 'In our senior year, that is when they started the building program - and they've never stopped.'

The small state institution has gone through quite a few changes in the 50 years since Schmidt graduated. Three new additions, including the $25 million library, are being dedicated this weekend alone."
