4 College Student

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.

Greek Life: They are very effective on campus. They are in forms of houses and dormitories.

4 College Student

Athletics: TCU is big in their sports. I focus more on my academics and work hard to keep my grades up and do my work that I really do not have time for anything else.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: TCU has been my dream college, so when I was excepted I was more than excited. It has been great going to school here. It is just like anything a lot of time and hard work striving to get a good education.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think that Greek life at my school has negatively affected my personal social experience, but I'm sure it has enhanced so many others'. The student body is almost 50% Greek, and many people have friends on both sides, but Greek does have an overwhelming presence on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is huge; the team is great and the fan support for the coach and the team is amazing. Football games are always awesome and students get in free, so there is great attendance and school spirit. Baseball is also pretty popular. Most of the other sports offer rewards such as free food or clothing to encourage attendance because they aren't as popular as football.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed the welcoming, friendly front the school has put forward, but after the first week or so, much of the support from student organizations on campus dies down, not to mention that the Greek organizations dominate the social atmosphere. Academically, my experience has been great and professors are wonderful; TCU also offers endless resources to help with career planning, tutoring, completing degrees, getting experience, and finding the right major.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career services honestly help out so much!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They do a pretty good job at making sure you head to the living quarters safely. Whether you are intoxicated or tired from a night out, the campus provides patrols with go carts to provide assistance.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The upperclassmen dorms really have it all. But in all essence, most upper class men just live in houses.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big portion in TCU. You're either an athlete. or a Greek

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!
