Off-Campus Dining: There are not too many places in the immediate area. Fuzzy's has good Mexican food, and Einstein Bros Bagels is great. Chopstix Express has okay Chinese food.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: I won't go praising it [off-campus dining], because it is nothing spectacular, but the surrounding area has plenty of places to eat such as Joe T Garcia's, Uncle Julio, Hoffbraus, Charleston's, Chili's, Goode Co., and many more.

Niche User

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus restaurants are pretty good. Boston Market and Fuzzy's are the best.

Campus Housing: The freshmen and the all-male dorms are the worst dorms on campus. They're really bare-there are community showers and bathrooms, and they're just not very private. My freshman year, I stayed in Colby Hall, which is okay if you're just going to live there for one year, but the nicer dorms are Clark and Moncrief. The ideal living situation are the on-campus apartments, the Tom Brown/Pete Wright community.

Niche User

Campus Housing: The on-campus apartments are the most sought-after facilities. However, they are for juniors and seniors only. The nicest dorms are Foster and Moncrief. Freshmen typically live in Brachman, Colby, and Milton-Daniel. Even the worst dorms aren't bad. The rooms are a decent size, and the bathrooms are cleaned each day.

Niche User

Campus Housing: Dorms are great. Most of them have been newly renovated. I would stay away from Colby, the all-girls dorm, because it's older than all the rest. I lived in Brachman my first year, in Worth Hills, and it was awesome. I like living down there because you always know what is going on with the fraternities. Worth Hills is where most of the fraternity and sorority houses are located.

Niche User

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are pretty nice, but the good ones are expensive.

Niche User

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are okay. They have community showers, and you can't really move your furniture. Out of all the schools I looked at, TCU had the biggest rooms. The dorms I like the best are Foster and Waits. I don't think Waits is too hard to get into, but a lot of sophomores prefer it.

Guys & Girls: The guys, for the most part, are super nice and hot! It's nice that very few guys come to TCU with girlfriends from high school, so they are on the prowl as well.

Guys & Girls: TCU was ranked number two in the nation in quality of girls by Playboy Magazine second only to Texas Tech. TCU has an outstanding selection of girls, and for every three guys, there are four girls. Needless to say, TCU has its share of hot Texas women. The guys are a little above average-there's really nothing spectacular about the quality of guys. TCU has historically been known for its girls, not its guys.

Guys & Girls: TCU girls were ranked among the hottest girls in the nation, and the guys are pretty good looking, too! TCU has been trying to balance the girl-to-guy ratio. My favorite part is that the guys will open the doors for you! What Southern hospitality!

Guys & Girls: There is an odd ratio of guys to girls in my year here. I think it's about 40-60, so there aren't as many guys as girls, but I think there are quite a few good-looking guys on campus. I can't speak personally for girls, but one of my guy friends told me that TCU has a reputation for having the best looking girls, and that's one of the reasons his dad wanted him to go to TCU.

Guys & Girls: For the most part, the guys are pretty cool. Being a guy, I am not going to say the guys are hot, but I will say that we have our share of handsome guys. Most girls I've met are cool and we have some amazingly beautiful girls here.

Guys & Girls: The girls here all seem to be blonde and clones of each other.

Guys & Girls: TCU is girl-dominated, so hot guys are tough to find-they are there, though. Most of the guys are in fraternities. A lot of wealthy people come here, so as you can imagine, they're close to perfect.

Guys & Girls: As a general rule, TCU has a lot more attractive people than most universities around. I visited a lot of other schools-hanging out with friends-and can confirm this. With that, however, also comes a good number of people that know they are the attractive people.

Nightlife: I haven't been to many on-campus parties, but the bar scene is pretty nice. The local bars like Scooner's, the Pub, the Cellar, andthe Moon are all hangouts for most TCU students (who are of age, of course).

Niche User

Nightlife: Right across the street, there are two great local TCU places, the Pub and Scooner's. Both are a ton of fun, but they are small and everyone crams into them. They are supposed to be 21 and over, but they tend to be pretty relaxed about that rule. Another place about a half block away is the Aardvark, which has great music and is 18 and over. Downtown also has tons of stuff, like a great comedy club called Four Day Weekend, sports bars, and the Library. You also have your local Texas stuff such as Billy Bob's.

Niche User

Nightlife: The Pub, and Scooner's are right across from campus-those are the bars where most TCU students hang out. However, the bars downtown are also fun (the Library, Fox'n'Hound). There aren't usually parties on campus, but there are house parties going on all the time.

Niche User

Nightlife: I haven't gone to a campus party. And I don't hang out in bars and clubs in Fort Worth, but in Dallas, they are good. Deep Ellum is the place to be. I, specifically, am fond of the Lizard Lounge.

Niche User

Nightlife: The parties are usual, like everywhere else-loud music and all. I haven't really visited the clubs or bars.

Niche User

Nightlife: You just find your own place. But everyone goes to Billy Bob's.

Niche User

Drug Safety: The drug scene has become almost non-existent here. I know people who do drugs, but they only do minor ones like drinking and smoking pot.

Niche User

Drug Safety: Truthfully, I've never come in contact with any drugs on campus.

Niche User

Drug Safety: Well, I haven't heard of anyone doing drugs since I started attending two years ago, but then again, I don't live on campus. There used to be a saying, `The C in TCU stands for cocaine, so make your own judgments.

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!
