3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food served at the dining hall is sometimes fresh and sometimes not. There are foods such as stir fry, hamburgers, and pizza that are served everyday in large quantities where as home-cooked foods are served with lesser quantity. Overall, the food could better.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not receive financial aid, but many of friends did. Some received scholarships upon admission and have not had issues renewing them while others have. Those that did not have difficulties with the renewal process explained that they kept up with the scholarship requirements and met with the necessary people causing them less stress and headache.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most non-Greeks are indifferent about Greeks since a lot of non-Greeks are friends with Greeks. Still some students view Greeks negatively since some Greeks form their own cliques and come across as being snobbish. However, the majority of Greeks are very kind and involved in activities that benefit campus life, as well as the surrounding community.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students involvement is crucial to the athletics at Texas Christian University. Many students make it a priority to show up to every football, soccer, volleyball, and basketball game. The school spirit has a way of unifying the student body and reminding us that we are the Horned Frogs!

Local Atmosphere: Fort Worth is a nice city, and the locals are very friendly towards students. Hulen Mall is not the best shopping experience, but you can generally find what you need. The restaurants are great and nightlife is also great.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls and guys are preppy, but not very stuck-up. Most of them are very friendly

Campus Strictness: The RAs are nice and understand if you had a hard night and will be there to comfort you if you are homesick

2 College Freshman

Diversity: This is very little diversity at TCU, outside of the athletes and international students. There is also still a heavy bias toward Texas residents. I found high school to be more diverse than TCU. Great

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There is only one dining hall and the food gets old fast. There needs to be more variety. The dining plan is also very expensive versus other schools.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus always feels relatively safe. There have been a few isolated robberies and break ins but the campus police force is very good. The area surrounding the school can be a bit dicey in certain areas but that is probably the same with any campus

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol is easy to get and is a big part of the social scene. The school enforces the ban on drinking in the dorm but looks the other way when kids stumble in after a night out.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek scene dominates at TCU. If you are a guy, being independent significantly limits your options. In many ways, it's like being in high school with the same cliques---right down to houses eating at the same tables in the dining halls. Your opportunity to meet and socialize with new people is sharply limited. Parties are closed to non Greeks, unless you are female.

TCU has recently expanded its enrollment but the number of available bids did not increase proportionately. Even if you want to go Greek, you may not be given an opportunity---a situation which makes for a long semester. Many of the bids are given informally before rush even starts.

Campus Housing: I got stuck in the only dorm that has not been renovated, which kind of sucked, but they are tearing it apart and updating it this summer (2014) ... other than Colby the dorms are ridiculously nice and spacious!

Nightlife: If you are a partier, TCU is perfect for you. There is literally something going on every night of the week! Lots of parties and many people go to the bars. Lots of people have fakes, but many don't.

Facilities: It has a lot to do with if you are involved with the greek life or not. It's not a necessity, but it really is a big part about campus. However, no matter who you are and what you are or are not involved in, you will find a group and something to do at anytime of the day. Even if you aren't able to get around, there are plenty of things to do in walking distance!

Local Atmosphere: Fort Worth is called Cowtown USA for a reason. There is a variety of things to see and do all around Fort Worth. One can go into downtown and go to 5-star restaurants or go to Billy Bob's and enjoy the world's largest honky tonk!

Diversity: There is a wide variety of religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and racial diversity on campus. Most are accepting of one another and work together in a variety of organizations and community events. Everyone is welcoming of others.

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!
