The Trenton State Room
Under a plan endorsed by the Alumni Association, rooms in Paul Loser Hall will be renamed with past College monikers as a way of acknowledging TCNJ’s 155-year history. Room 123 is now known as “The Trenton State Room.”
Paul Loser Hall is often the first stop for visitors to campus. It’s home to the admissions office, which welcomes thousands of prospective students and their families each year, and also houses the College’s primary reception facilities. With so many visitors passing through its doors, the building is the perfect location in which to acknowledge the College’s long history.
Under a plan endorsed by the Alumni Association, certain rooms in Paul Loser Hall will be renamed with past College monikers as a way of acknowledging TCNJ’s 155-year history. The first renaming, fittingly, took place last semester when room 123, one of the most publicly used rooms and the meeting place of the Alumni Association, was designated The Trenton State Room.
“From the time it was established as the first teacher training school in the state right up through today, the College has been one of the best public institutions in the region and even the nation,” said John Marcy, vice president for college advancement. “Each of TCNJ’s names calls to mind different images and stages of the College’s progression. These rooms will serve not only as a celebration of the College’s strong history, but also as an acknowledgment that TCNJ today is the logical culmination of that progression.”
