Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of TCNJ are invited to participate in the #TCNJLionStrong Challenge. Show your TCNJ Pride by creating your own digital version/performance of TCNJ’s Alma Mater. The version can be all-vocal, all-instrumental, or mixed! You could record the entire Alma Mater or just an excerpt. The performance could be traditional or an entirely new arrangement of work. Upload your video to social media and include #TCNJLionStrong in your post. Tag @tcnj_artscomm and @tcnjofficial in your post.
