1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Fair warning: If you are not a pretentiously ignorant and spoiled child then this place is definitely not for you. Excessive amounts conformity and arrogance are necessary to survive here.

Guys & Girls: TCU has the best looking women in the country but the gender ratio is way off. Sometimes you don't see any guys.

Party Scene: If you're involved in the Greek, there's a lot of house parties, mixers, formals, and other events throughout the year. There are also bars and many other events for anyone who's looking for it.

5 College Freshman

Majors: An important aspect of admission is getting involved in high school. Do something that sets you apart from other applicants. I switched majors and the process was fast and easy.

Guys & Girls: TCU has one of the most attractive student bodies in the country. Students are preppy and good looking. Dress can be bad during the week but students dress well during the weekend. There is a hookup culture on campus, but there's a big number of students looking for serious relationships too.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. There are police cars driving around campus all day long and there are shuttle options for transportation at night. The Health Center is very convenient and helpful, and there are organizations to prevent sexual assault on our campus.

Athletics: TCU Athletics keeps getting better each year. There is a lot of passion, school spirit, and pride for the Horned Frogs in the TCU community. The Recreation Center is huge, and there are tons of intramurals and club sports.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is big at TCU. The social atmosphere is what you make it, there will always be opportunities to meet people in and out of the Greek. Most of the GDIs are indifferent about Greeks.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of great off-campus housing options. However, they can be very expensive.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good off-campus options at walking distance and a reasonable price. You can also use the frog bucks included in your meal plan in most of them for convenience.

5 College Freshman

Administration: TCU is very laid back on some of the policies. As long as you're not doing something you shouldn't out in the public, you should be good.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: TCU gives good scholarships and financial aid options. The financial aid process is very smooth and straight forward.

Campus Food: The BLUU can become very repetitive. However, having endless swipes and campus cash for locations such as Chick-fil-a is very convenient. It's a good bang for the buck.

Overall Experience: TCU is one of the best decisions I have made. I have met my best friends here, my sorority is amazing, I have made an ton of career connections, the people are great, I absolutely love Texas. Although not everything here is 100% perfect, no school is and I wouldn't change a thing.

Overall Experience: I love TCU. The courses are just hard enough without being impossible, and the class sizes are small enough that all the professors I've had have known my name. The professors actually care about your success as a student, and it is nice to know that they care. There are a crazy amount of different types of classes you can take, anything from scuba diving to fashion design to biology.

Guys & Girls: Girls in general are seen as very good looking and there are more girls than guys. The guys party a lot but at the same time are pretty smart and driven, there are a lot of good looking ones. I don't notice very many people dating, I would say the hook up culture is more prevalent.

Health & Safety: In general, health and safety on campus is good, I have never really felt unsafe walking around at night, there are a lot of services to get you home safe when you need it.

Greek Life: I am personally a member of greek life, so I obviously love it. A lot of non-greeks see us only for our parties and that we are cliquey, but I still have a ton of friends that are not in fraternities and sororities and after around sophomore year it doesn't matter as much. Over 50% of the campus is greek though, so it definitely affects the social atmosphere and the way people view you.

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!
