4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in Sherely, just some of the guys treat the restroom with no respect for anyone else. Also it gets pretty loud outside when I'm trying to sleep. Few people take quiet hours seriously.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally I'm not apart of any fraternity, it's just a little silly to me to have to pay all this money to be apart of an organization who is so two faced. Most of them are at least.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: TCU athletics is a very big thing on campus. Everyone talks about it all the time, and the players are valued an extreme amount. It's always fun going to the games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: First and foremost, I am a freshman female in a sorority. I went through formal recruitment and ended up dropping, but later joined the new sorority. Rush is very stressful, if you're rushing a sorority, get recommendations, google it and do some research. I expected it to be much easier to get into a sorority than it was. This year about 400 out of the 1000 girls that rushed dropped out for various reasons. There are definitely house stereotypes that impacted this. As a girl though, even if you were not to be in a sorority and were interested in going to parties, its totally possible. I can't say a lot about guys' rush but it is competitive and I know a couple guys that did not get any bids. For guys it is much harder to get into frat parties without being in one. Greek life is most definitely noticeable on campus and the hard work is worth it.

Overall Experience: Overall TCU is a great college to be in, with a large variety of interesting courses and generally great professors who care about your education. Each professor has his own personal way of teaching, with none exactly like the other, which adds a very pleasant dynamic to classrooms.

Overall Experience: TCU is a very academically rigorous school, so that the value of its degree is sure to be high, especially for biology majors such as myself. The alumni network as I hear is very helpful and it is not too hard to find a career after college.

Health & Safety: Security overall is good. Students feel mostly safe and take precautions to maintain their safety. Crime watch is good too since all students and faculty are immediately notified of a crime when it is reported.

Campus Housing: While I personally didn't enjoy my roommate in freshman year, everything else about the dorm was great. The community was incredibly friendly and many convenient study rooms make it easy to both hang out and study.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not too into the Greek life but I know it's a big presence within the campus. Many students on campus are involved in a fraternity or sorority and there typically isn't any animosity between Greeks and non-Greeks.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: With TCU housing one of the best and most popular college football teams in the nation, it's unsurprising to find that much of college life revolves around them and around athletics in general. There is much student involvement and school spirit among the student body, with a very community-driven spirit.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a very challenging experience, both the fact that it's a more academically rigorous place than high school and that I'm having to take care of myself. The most important and also most disconcerting thing is finding my place in the world and doing the best I can to give back to the gifts I've been given in life, and I can't think of a better place than where I am now to find that purpose.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love that the class sizes are usually pretty small. The only large classes Ive been in are my science classes. This allows for students to be more involved in the classroom, and for the professors to get to know the students on a more personal level.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: TCU is really good about helping students find jobs after they graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: TCU actually has a transportation system at night called Froggy. Basically you call a froggy and someone in a golf cart will come pick you up and take you where you need to go on campus, which is nice in case you're nervous about walking alone at night. There are also patrolling police officers at all hours of the day/night. I feel very safe on campus.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is much better at TCU than most universities. The rooms are relatively spacious and bathrooms are cleaned. In the Sophomore dorms, the bathrooms are cleaned once a month by cleaning services. The views from the room are also nice no matter which way you're facing.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of campus life. A large majority of Students are involved in greek life. TCU has many different houses and the Rush process is quite fun. You'll for sure find your home if Greek life is what you'r interested in.

Athletics: TCU football thats all I'm gonna say--well I'll also say the cheerleaders are great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: TCU is so fun. The traditions and people and greek life are the best.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had great professors so far, I can't think of any that were bad. I did take Contemporary Issues in Biology and the TA was useless though.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you actually go to the career center, they want to do nothing more than helpful. I highly highly recommend utilizing them for a practice interview for any interview you may have on or off campus.

Health & Safety: This campus is so safe I laugh when I hear moms on tours asking about safety. I will say I am a guy, but I don't think that makes a difference for safety on this campus. I have walked to my dorm in the wee hours alone, not sober, and never once had an issue or been scared. I left my dorm room unlocked all year, dorms are safe.

Campus Housing: The dorms at TCU are incredible. I lived in Milton Daniel (the honors dorm) my first year and was worried I would be stuck with a bunch of nerds. It was the complete opposite of that, our floor was a blast and the dorm in general is great. Campus isn't that big so all the dorms are pretty convenient. On campus housing is more expensive than off campus which is part of the reason people move off campus after their sophomore year. Housing lottery is a pain but that only matters after your first year.

Greek Life: I decided to rush and join a fraternity because I thought it would be fun, it's been an amazing experience thus far. Greek life is pretty huge at TCU, it seems everyone is wearing a Greek shirt around campus. That being said, two of my closest friends are not in my fraternity, one who wasn't Greek and he never had a problem going to mixers or parties. I don't know how non-Greeks view Greeks, I don't think there's a huge divide or anything of that sort which was a concern of mine going to TCU. I will say at times the inter fraternity politics is BS, but it's still a ton of fun.

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!
