3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team just joined the Big 12 so football games were so much fun this year. TCU has an amazing baseball team and i am looking forward to going to games. Students love dressing up and going to football games and supporting the athletes at all of their games.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is only one place to go eat and the rest of the places take Campus Cash. Most of the food is good but it is a lot of the same thing over and over again. They have been expanding lately though.

Majors: I love the English Department, and being a Writing major is awesome. I would definitely do the same thing if I could do it over again, this is the only thing I want to do for a living, and TCU has been great at getting me prepared to write better than I have before. My goal is to become a published author, Bestseller would be nice, but that's not the important thing. The only real concern I have is finding a publisher soon, one that I am happy working with. However, there is a publisher that is part of campus and the English department and they publish books by alumni and books about Texas, so I know that there is something out there for me.

Majors: Getting into my Writing major was quite easy. There were no prerequisites, or portfolio reviews. The only thing one would need to do is take an Intro To Creative Writing class, as that is required before getting to specific writing classes like Drama, Fiction, or Poetry. But there were no requirements or essays to write to get into the program. I declared going into my freshman year, at the time of applying to TCU.

4 College Junior

Majors: The Fine Arts programs are great, the professors are laid back and understanding. They really help you break out of your shell and explore new things, expanding your skills in areas that you may not have given much thought to before. While there is a lot of work to do, especially with a Writing degree, it is never overwhelming, and the classes are, for the most part, enjoyable.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Strict on campus. Our QB even had to leave school for a semester. Still lots of prtying off campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are great. People are great there. Boys to one side girls to the other. Required to live on campus for two years but different living space for sophs. Food is good but gets tiring. All dorms eat at the BLUU which is the union building. Good eating around campus but costs money

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: good student life. Greek life is all encompassing and is great

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Unfortunately, they have not been particularly helpful for me. You need to continue hounding the financial aid office. Though they were unwilling to give me before, there is hope for merit financial aid because I did well in first semester

Diversity: There is great acceptance of all persons at TCU. There are a few who have not been exposed to different cultures but that is not an issue

3 College Junior

Weather: Texas Weather, especially in the DFW area is great. Sometimes it can be really indecisive however most days are perfect never going below 30 degrees in the winter.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Everything is relatively new and accessible and free. The service is great and the employees are really positive. It is perfect for a small school like TCU and everyone I know enjoys the facilities at TCU.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining is above average compared to other dining halls I have seen. Every semester, they make changes and use student responses to make the dining experience better. The cost is still very high and the availability is poor. However, I have enjoyed dining at TCU.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: TCU is unique since it is sort of its own little town. One thing that is special is that Greek life accounts for 47% of the student body. That's nearly half the entire population at TCU. Being Greek at TCU however allows one to grow as a leader and an advocate for community service.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing selection is poor. The housing quality is average looking at high-quality apartments being overshadowed by poor quality apartments. what makes housing off-campus horrible are the prices. Since TCU is already so expensive, I don't believe the prices for off-campus housing is fair for minorities such as my self who are low SES.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is nice, but it is very expensive. On top of expensive rent, some places charge you for parking. For example, my apartment charges $80 a month for parking. Because I chose not to pay this, I have difficulty parking close to my apartment and am forced to park in a not-so-safe part of town. However, if you chose to pay the money, you'll have not problem with parking lot safety. Additionally, many of the apartments are very safe.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Texas weather gets crazy. it might be cold in the morning and by the afternoon it's very hot and sometimes you have to go back to your dorm and get changed. It can get very hot her, but it's not humid. Because snow is a bit rare in Txas, classes get cancelled if it snows

4 College Freshman

Academics: All fo my teachers so far are really educated about their field, and they all have a lot of experience and some of my professor even know important people. If you go to the office hours, they're always willing to help in any way.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The computers at the library are fast, but we could use more iMacs. I don't feel there's a lack of computers even at crunch times. We get 200 free prints per semester. There is wifi access everywhere and it's very fast.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: TCU is not too diverse. There are a few latinos and europeans, but everyone is mostly white. However, as an international student it;s not hard to fit in.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports are huge, especially football since we entered the Big 12 this year. The games are always fun to attend.

5 College Junior

Local Area: From the Speedway to other sports complexes, Six Flags, clean down town, and fairs there is never any boredom in Fort Worth

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus is relatively good at TCU. There are a number of nice apartments and there is lots of rental homes. The proximity is nice and safe.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls of TCU are all kind and welcoming.

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!
