4 College Freshman

Facilities: We can eat as many times a week as we would like and can get into all athletic events for free. We always have events going on on campus. We have petting zoos, blow ups and other activities everyday of the week. For hump day, the university literally brought in a camel for us!

Campus Dining: We have an unlimited amount of meals for the year. We are not limited to a certain amount of times we can go to the cafeteria a week. There are late night options Sunday through Thursday. Vegetarian and Gluten-free options are available for students. There is quite a variety that sometimes we take advantage of but many universities probably do not have.

Weather: I grew up in Texas so I'm used to the bipolar weather. Some students hate that one day it could be 45 degrees and raining and the next day humid and 80.

Academics: I've always wanted to have a career in the fashion industry but never wanted to go into the design aspect of it. At TCU we get the perfect mix of the business and design part of the fashion industry and are provided with a variety of resources that not many other schools could give its students.

Campus Housing: All dorms are top quality. There are some that have not been redone in a decade or so but they are still a great quality compared to other universities. The dorms provide many amenities that others do not They have very many social events for students and are near campus. The size of all are decent. Cost is average.

Off-Campus Housing: Some of the housing is pretty old while some areas are extremely well off. Depending on what the student is looking for and the price will give the student what they are looking for. All options are conveniently near campus with available transportation. Not very much parking anywhere.

Drug Safety: I am not rating because I believe the drug and alcohol scene is very much the same as the average university. Alcohol is available for those students who wish to participate in this atmosphere. For drugs, I do not know much about the drug scene on campus. Some students take the risk and use drugs while others do not believe that drugs are worth it.

Most students at TCU are pleased with their education and the opportunities presented to them. While diversity continues to be an issue on campus, strong academics, good facilities, and countless organizations play a larger role in student life. To most students, TCU offers a strong academic foundation in a lively setting. Fort Worth and Dallas provide endless entertainment, while campus police and Froggie Five-O do their best to protect and serve the students on TCU’s campus. Students have a wide variety of living options, providing them with a great environment while earning their educations.

Don't be fooled by the name: TCU isn’t a stuffy church school. It’s a place where students are encouraged to try new things and branch out. A few numerous organizations—Greek ones in particular—tend to discriminate between social groups, but the overall student body is quite friendly. Academically, students are eager to learn, and a small student-faculty ratio allows students to interact closely with each of their professors. In the long run, many TCU students truly appreciate the campus for what it is and tend to view it as an experience like no other. It sure is good to be a Horned Frog!
