4 College Junior

Diversity: No one really cares about the diversity. We are all there to learn and there is never any problems with any diversity. There is a lot on the TCU campus. For example, all different religion's. There is not really any challenges I do not think except for the fact that almost all the scholarships in the financial aid office's books are for minorities that is about it. People do have different economic backgrounds. Most of the kids going to this university are rich kids, but the rest are not. I have never seen on campus any altercation or anyone talking about someone because of diversity.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Though TCU may not be the most ethnically diverse university, we do have a lot of international students and people from all over the U.S. To me one of the coolest things about attending TCU is the wide range of backgrounds of where people are from. So many state schools are dominated mostly by people from that state, but most of my friends here are from all over the country. Political beliefs are all fairly conservative and I haven't seen too much diversity in that as well as sexual orientation. Everyone is very accepting of religious beliefs and practices, but not judgmental.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

TCU is not known for diversity—most of the student body is Anglo-American. However, despite the lack of ethnic diversity on campus, the student body is open-minded, and students can’t recall any significant cases of racial prejudice at TCU. Many groups are working to increase diversity organizations on campus by forming special interest groups and Greek organizations.

Diversity is an area that has a lot of potential at TCU. Organizations such as the student-led Inclusiveness Task Force (ITF), cultural support groups, and numerous programs offered through Intercultural Education and Services, show that TCU is taking steps in the right direction in order to make campus more diverse. While TCU strives for a more diverse campus, the student body, and faculty alike are contributing to the effort by creating more and more organizations that continue to open everyone’s eyes.

Political Activity
There are various groups at TCU that allow students to voice their political views. The Young Democrats and Young Republicans meet regularly, as does the Peace Action Committee, which also hold protests and demonstrations throughout the year. These groups exist and function effectively, but they see relatively little participation from the bulk of the student body.
Economic Status
The TCU student body is generally made up of people from either upper-class backgrounds, or from upper-middle-class backgrounds—along with a good deal of scholarship students.
Most Common Religions
Christianity is obviously very prominent at TCU, but other religions are met with tolerance. There are many youth groups from various churches that have frequent meetings on campus for students.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The International Student Association (ISA) is a prominent club on campus, helping international students ease into American life. The Asian Student Association (ASA) is also a functioning club, as are Students for Asian-Indian Cultural Awareness (SAICA), the Organization for Latin American Students (OLAS), and the African Heritage Organization (AHO).
