Coming from a really diverse school, I didn't think it would be that big of a deal that TCU wasn't diverse, but it turned out to be the defining factor in how I liked the school.

TCU is absolutely the best, everyone is so friendly here. There's an overall sense of community here. On any day I can go up to any random person and have an awesome conversation with them. I make new friends every single day.

Incredible school, I love it here. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I am not from the south and have definitely noticed it. There are plenty of different groups to be in with different types of people with different groups.
