The Signal is The College of New Jersey‘s award-winning, student-produced, weekly newspaper. Established in 1885, it is one of the older student newspapers in the country, and among the oldest collegiate weeklies.

Starting as a literary publication, The Signal evolved from a booklet that was only a few pages long to a full news publication with different sections that covered a variety of campus events. The newspaper went on hiatus in the 1920s due to lack of funds, but was revived after a few years. The following decades saw The Signal change and develop with each time period so that it could best serve the needs of a continuously changing and developing college community. The Signal continues to do that today, and our staff is always open to hearing ideas and thoughts from TCNJ’s students, alumni, faculty/staff and other people affiliated with the College.

The present editorial staff consists of an editor-in-chief, two managing editors, two news editors, a sports editor, features editor, arts & entertainment editor, opinions editor, nation & world editor, reviews editor, production manager, web editor, three social media editors, two photo editors and a project manager. In addition to editing pieces for publication, the editorial staff assumes all page layout and web editing responsibilities. The present business staff consists of a business manager, who is responsible for handling all advertising needs. All other staff members consist of a distribution manager, section assistants, copy editors and staff writers (to become a staff writer, you must have three articles published in The Signal — until then, you are a correspondent).

Issues are published on Wednesdays during the Fall and Spring semesters, and are delivered to multiple campus locations including the Library, Eickhoff Hall, the Brower Student Center and most academic buildings and residence halls.

  1. Is it possible to get a print out of the Complete Roster of the 1990 Football team and its coaches and the Athletic Director also at that time? Also the Roster of 1988 Team. Our Son David S Liepe was a player on those teams and his Son Gavin considering attending TCNJ and some thirty years later play on the same field his Dad played on. We are the parents of David and Grand Parents of Gavin, who graduates from Holy Spirit 2017.
