4 College Freshman

Athletics: From what I have seen as just a freshman, almost everyone attends the home football games, regardless of whether the team is good or not. There is definitely a sense of school spirit, everyone seems proud to be a Horned Frog. I cannot speak to the other athletic events because I have never attended anything other than football games.

Weather: It is extremely hot in the beginning of the school year, but cools down towards the end of fall. The weather is fairly unpredictable… for example, one day in December it was 80 degrees out, and then there was an ice storm a week later.

Party Scene: There is almost always somewhere to go, whether it's a bar or a house party. Some are within walking distance, but others are a several minute drive. There are usually safe rides that people can take to parties from campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Limited availability and costs about the same as living on campus. Driving to school and parking in the commuter lot would be a hassle though.

Local Area: Ft. Worth is a great town! The zoo is minutes away, as are museums and malls. The seminary, UTA, TCC, and Wesleyan all interact pretty peacefully and are all within like 20 minutes of each other.

Party Scene: I don't hear about many parties. I hear sororities and fraternities have parties off campus, but I'm not involved in the Greek. Thursdays seem to be party nights, but I usually go to Billy Bobs where we two-step. There are things for the under-aged to do, transportation is dependent on if you or your friend has a car.

Parking: The lots fill up very quickly. Freshman parking is very far away and the commuters parking is far away and fills up quickly too. Price is reasonable, and sophomore parking is great. I can usually find a spot, but I'm considered lucky.

Campus Quality: Buildings are old and huge, but you get the hang of it after a while. Easy to get lost during the first week of school. They are kept clean and the tech always works in every classroom.

Campus Quality: The CREW hosts events every day, the library is great for studying. The Rec Center is a great hangout and Union Grounds is a popular spot too. Traditions like football parades and comedy shows are super fun.

Campus Housing: Clean and renovated halls. Way over priced, but for a private college it isn't too bad. Halls on the commons are the most expensive, and are literally in the middle of everything. It's great living there. Freshman halls are near the middle of campus as well, and pretty nice. Foster is the best freshman dorm!!

Weather: Texas is warm 95% of the time. Shorts and flip flops from March to November! Texas weather is known for being bi-polar. We got snow for 3 days this year. But overall I love the warmth.

Greek Life: I have a lot of friends who are involved in the Greek. They are nice and dedicated to their sororities. It's not a big deal to not be a part of a sorority, but during rush week you feel a little out of the loop.

Scholarships: I got financial aid my first year here, then I reapplied and got nothing. This was frustrating, and with tuition increasing each year they claim to increase their financial aid, but I'm still without and financially struggling.

Campus Food: At first our campus dining is overwhelming with all of the options. After a year eating at the same place it gets old and boring. But the quality is overall very good.

Guys & Girls: The fraternity boys are full of themselves and partying, but easy to avoid. The guys in the honors college are the best friends I have. The guys are very attractive and the ones on our athletic teams are proud and for good reason.

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!
