4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Strict on campus. Our QB even had to leave school for a semester. Still lots of prtying off campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are great. People are great there. Boys to one side girls to the other. Required to live on campus for two years but different living space for sophs. Food is good but gets tiring. All dorms eat at the BLUU which is the union building. Good eating around campus but costs money

3 College Freshman

Facilities: good student life. Greek life is all encompassing and is great

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Unfortunately, they have not been particularly helpful for me. You need to continue hounding the financial aid office. Though they were unwilling to give me before, there is hope for merit financial aid because I did well in first semester

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is great acceptance of all persons at TCU. There are a few who have not been exposed to different cultures but that is not an issue

3 College Junior

Weather: Texas Weather, especially in the DFW area is great. Sometimes it can be really indecisive however most days are perfect never going below 30 degrees in the winter.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Everything is relatively new and accessible and free. The service is great and the employees are really positive. It is perfect for a small school like TCU and everyone I know enjoys the facilities at TCU.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining is above average compared to other dining halls I have seen. Every semester, they make changes and use student responses to make the dining experience better. The cost is still very high and the availability is poor. However, I have enjoyed dining at TCU.

3 College Junior

Facilities: TCU is unique since it is sort of its own little town. One thing that is special is that Greek life accounts for 47% of the student body. That's nearly half the entire population at TCU. Being Greek at TCU however allows one to grow as a leader and an advocate for community service.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing selection is poor. The housing quality is average looking at high-quality apartments being overshadowed by poor quality apartments. what makes housing off-campus horrible are the prices. Since TCU is already so expensive, I don't believe the prices for off-campus housing is fair for minorities such as my self who are low SES.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is nice, but it is very expensive. On top of expensive rent, some places charge you for parking. For example, my apartment charges $80 a month for parking. Because I chose not to pay this, I have difficulty parking close to my apartment and am forced to park in a not-so-safe part of town. However, if you chose to pay the money, you'll have not problem with parking lot safety. Additionally, many of the apartments are very safe.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Texas weather gets crazy. it might be cold in the morning and by the afternoon it's very hot and sometimes you have to go back to your dorm and get changed. It can get very hot her, but it's not humid. Because snow is a bit rare in Txas, classes get cancelled if it snows

4 College Freshman

Academics: All fo my teachers so far are really educated about their field, and they all have a lot of experience and some of my professor even know important people. If you go to the office hours, they're always willing to help in any way.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers at the library are fast, but we could use more iMacs. I don't feel there's a lack of computers even at crunch times. We get 200 free prints per semester. There is wifi access everywhere and it's very fast.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: TCU is not too diverse. There are a few latinos and europeans, but everyone is mostly white. However, as an international student it;s not hard to fit in.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports are huge, especially football since we entered the Big 12 this year. The games are always fun to attend.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: From the Speedway to other sports complexes, Six Flags, clean down town, and fairs there is never any boredom in Fort Worth

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus is relatively good at TCU. There are a number of nice apartments and there is lots of rental homes. The proximity is nice and safe.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls of TCU are all kind and welcoming.

Transportation: The transportation at TCU is prompt, convenient and cheap.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There aren't as many classes as larger public universities have.. not as much of the "fun" and "interesting" classes, but its a top notch school for academics regardless.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life dominates. Most people that are active on campus at all are Greek.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: There is parking on campus for everyone... if you are willing to walk. The normal parking lots fill up fast and you may have to park in overflow. So if you are a commuter, get there early. If you live on campus and your lot fills up.. you may have to walk 15-20 minutes to get to your dorm.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: You are able to enter the program as long as the university admits you to the school. Research methods 1 & 2 are hard and will weed some people out but the major is generally easy as long as you put the work in and stay on top of it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Classes are very diverse. Professors come from all walks of life and bring great wisdom/experiences to the classroom. Definitely a lot of internship opportunities.

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!
