4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is always something to do on campus or in Fort Worth.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm from nearby, so I really don't know what typical TCU kids do. Fort Worthians avoid anywhere we know TCU kids will likely be.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Greek events are dominated by all females. It is terrible. The bars are crowded and not a good place to meet people. They don't know how to party at all.

Most students are satisfied with the nightlife in and around Fort Worth. There are a variety of local bars and clubs close to campus, and student favorites like The Pub and Scooner's are located just blocks from the dorms. The area bars tend to be the most popular, but some students occasionally head into downtown Fort Worth or Dallas for a change of scenery. The various bars and clubs in the Fort Worth area provide entertainment for all ages. The Galaxy Club, located in Downtown Dallas, and Billy Bob's, located in Downtown
Fort Worth, are just two places popular among underage students. Since most students look off campus for evening
and weekend entertainment, there are plenty of options
close to campus. Overall, students seem to be satisfied with the selection.
