A better name would be "A College of NJ" instead of "The College of NJ", since there are other state colleges/universities in New Jersey, like Rutgers University.

Located in Ewing, NJ, TCNJ used to be called Trenton State College, or TSC. However, TCNJ isn't really in Trenton, hence the name change. (Although they were ignored, Princeton complained about the name, because that used to be their name, so many years ago.)
