4 College Sophomore

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.

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The amount of great teams we have is ridiculous. I think like 8 teams won a Big 12 Championship in 2015-2016. Football is unbelievable coming from the north east where college football is nothing. Baseball games are fun. Basketball team sucks but will be better with Jamie Dixon and the brand new stadium is awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at TCU was absolutely incredible. The people you will meet are great, the sports are incredible, and the weather is amazing.

Academics: Professors are very willing to help the students out and make sure they succeed. The curriculum for me has been great but difficult in some areas. I struggled with registration at first because I was last minute getting in due to the Christmas holidays. There is plenty of places to study on campus and I have definitely enjoyed my time at TCU.

Overall Experience: There are a variety of classes offered to all students. The Professors are very friendly and willing to help and are willing to change to make things accessible in order to have a successful learning experience for the student. They are also very flexible on meeting with you if you can not meet at their times. The class sizes are about average for a bigger school. Overall I have been very pleased with my experience at TCU and would not change it.

Health & Safety: There are a lot of emergency areas and panic buttons on campus. I feel extremely safe when I am on campus and have not had an issue.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The overall experience has been great. Everyone has been very helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to getting from point A to point B. There are plenty of opportunities I just have not needed them at this time since I am still in my first year at TCU.

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!
