3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: values and who gets what is a little confusing but once you have a scholarship it is fairly easy from there on out

Campus Food: I don't really eat the food at the bluu but I have to have a meal plan. I am wasting money because they require me to have meal plans but then I buy my own healthy food to cook for myself. I have to go to a friends to cook though because there arent any stoves or useful things in the dorms so I cant make anything stove top there

Campus Housing: I hated my roomates my 2nd and 3rd semester and had a hard time getting help with issues and with changing rooms. I also love my roommates from 1st semester and get along with my 4th semester roommates fine.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall cafeteria food is good and varies day to day. But what students like the most is the late night food which is from 10pm to midnight. And there is even a twitter account @TCULateNight which tweets out the food options each night, its great! COME TO TCU

Off-Campus Housing: From what I can see off-campus living is really great and there are a lot of options close to campus. You have to live on-campus for two years so you don't really have to worry about it until towards the end of sophomore year. With that said you don't have to live off campus.

Party Scene: I would not describe TCU as a party school, but there are always parties and people going out to bars on the weekends. I think there is something for everyone whether you are a hard-core partier or not. Everyone has a lot of fun here.

Campus Food: The campus food is really great for freshman because you get unlimited swips into the bluu so that really takes a lot of stress off students.

Campus Housing: Campus housing at TCU is so nice and better than any other college housing that I have seen. The rooms are much larger than a typical dorm room and are kept up to date and nice. You really get to know the people you are living with and there are several housing options to choose from. I love it here!

Scholarships: I'm lucky to have gotten a grant, but it is a hardship for me to go to this school and I could use more than I was given.

Campus Food: I really hate the BLUU, to be honest. Love that we have Chickfila and the multipurpose center. Don't like that freshman have to pay a ton for a meal plan that I rarely even use.

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't gone out much but when I have I enjoyed a delicious thing of chips and queso at Fuzzies and have heard of a lot of great restaurants around town. Pizza Snob is my favorite.

5 College Freshman

Administration: In my experience the staff and administration have done a very good job at keeping campus safe and fun for students by implementing rules, emergency access and TCU police.

Scholarships: My family did not apply for financial aid because we did not qualify, and I did not receive any scholarships which was difficult. It's hard to find scholarships now on campus.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I wouldn't really know, I don't go to parties.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!
