3 College Freshman

Diversity: I don't really have an issue with diversity, I'm friends with who I am friends with, I'm not too concerned about race or religion or sexual orientation.

Diversity: There aren't many international students, but I don't feel rejected or anything by the Americans

3 College Junior

Diversity: Most of TCU is pretty homogenous, but we aim to be accepting and loving of all. Most noticeable separation of students seems to be athletes/non athletes.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I love that our campus accepts so many different people and cultures. It's made the whole experience better than I expected.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: There is pretty much no diversity, anywhere. Fort Worth can be pretty diverse, and there are technically diverse students at TCU, but you never ever see them around or get to meet them

TCU is not known for diversity—most of the student body is Anglo-American. However, despite the lack of ethnic diversity on campus, the student body is open-minded, and students can’t recall any significant cases of racial prejudice at TCU. Many groups are working to increase diversity organizations on campus by forming special interest groups and Greek organizations.

Diversity is an area that has a lot of potential at TCU. Organizations such as the student-led Inclusiveness Task Force (ITF), cultural support groups, and numerous programs offered through Intercultural Education and Services, show that TCU is taking steps in the right direction in order to make campus more diverse. While TCU strives for a more diverse campus, the student body, and faculty alike are contributing to the effort by creating more and more organizations that continue to open everyone’s eyes.

Political Activity
There are various groups at TCU that allow students to voice their political views. The Young Democrats and Young Republicans meet regularly, as does the Peace Action Committee, which also hold protests and demonstrations throughout the year. These groups exist and function effectively, but they see relatively little participation from the bulk of the student body.
Economic Status
The TCU student body is generally made up of people from either upper-class backgrounds, or from upper-middle-class backgrounds—along with a good deal of scholarship students.
Most Common Religions
Christianity is obviously very prominent at TCU, but other religions are met with tolerance. There are many youth groups from various churches that have frequent meetings on campus for students.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The International Student Association (ISA) is a prominent club on campus, helping international students ease into American life. The Asian Student Association (ASA) is also a functioning club, as are Students for Asian-Indian Cultural Awareness (SAICA), the Organization for Latin American Students (OLAS), and the African Heritage Organization (AHO).
