"Your college years will be some of the best years of your life." This common phrase people use to describe the college experience. At times it seems like it's just become a convenient clich? that people use to make everything sound nice, but the fact is with my experiences thus far at Texas Christian University, I may have to join the masses in expressing that sentiment. TCU is becoming and is looking to continue to be some of the greatest years of my life. The faculty, students, programs and overall community are amazing. There is always a helping hand, a smiling face, and a new intriguing experience around the corner. Being born and raised in California, I never would have thought I could call a place like Texas home, but TCU has allowed me to do exactly that by welcoming with open arms and an eagerness to help me succeed. Texas Christian University hasn't just changed my life, it has enhanced all for the better. So, go ahead call me typical, say it?s all a clich? because in this case I can't help it that the clich? has become a fact that it all too true.
I love the fact that TCU is a smaller University with a big University feel. Everyone is very welcoming and kind if your open and yourself. The falculty is always more than willing to help the students in any possible way. What Il ove most of all besides the great academic and non-academic programs is the school spirit. Everyone here has so much passion for the campus, something I didn't get to experience at my old school. It's refreshing and exciting.
I wish I would have known about the campus sooner, so I could have tried harder to transfer earlier. This campus in its entirety from students, to faculty to programs is amazing.

The new friends I have made my first year have helped me become a more well rounded person. I have learned to surround myself with people that have a drive to succede. The groups I am involved with have helped me grow in my faith more than I ever imagined. It has helped me to develop more confidence in myself and to keep focus on my goals. I have learned how to help other succede as well. The most important thing I have learned is that I can not do all things on my own. I have learned to use the resources and people around me to help me do well in classes and accomplish my goals.
If you want your faith to be a part of your college experience its a great place for you. Students wanting to be involved in greek organizations. Students who like music, especially country.
Current consrtuction on campus. The construction has upgraded the campus greatly in the past few years, and it is almost complete, but its just annoying durring the day.

Grdauating from high school was the biggest step in my life and I accomplished a lot of goals ithat made others proud. Taking the next step to college was very important to me because I know that if I do not further my education, life would just be a waste. I think it's important to go to college and take that life long experience. Being a college freshman was of course scary but meeting new people and learning new subjects was fun and interestig. It was a hassle but I conquered through it all and wouldnt change anything. Georgia Military College is a great school and place to meet others from a different background as you. My experience made me who I am today, to be a leader and never a follower. School may get tough but never give up because you will be awarded at the end. It is very valuable beause it is a once in a lifetime experience. that you will not forget and can treasure for life. Accept every moment in life and learn from it to become a better person.
TCU is very friendly and laid back with a high standard for education.

The small class size and individual attention from faculty and staff.
College has been a learning experience all around. I have not only learned through academics, but also about people. Learning people's tendencies and behaviors has been very interesting to me. Having to resolve conflicts with people has been quite an experience since every person handles situations differently. I have learned, while in college, how to adjust to different personalities. My college experience has been absolutely amazing and I coudln't have asked for a better school to attend. I have learned many life lessons and have been able to experience many job opportunities in my field of psychology. I value my education, so attending college has been valuable in itself. I want to pursue my doctorate, so receiving my bachelor's degree was the first step. I will soon be enrolled in University of North Texas's Educational Psychology Master's Program as my next step in pursuing my doctorate. Mostly, my undergraduate experience has been just plain fun (with lots of work in between)!
TCU is all about pride, we are "horny for life!"

People think that TCU has one population: the sorority girl and the fraternity boy, but our students represent many ethnicities, cultures, economic statuses, and gender, and everyone can find their place here.
TCU has been a place where I can call home. I live on campus, and have a community in my building. I joined a sorority, and gained new sisters to my family. I love that I found a place that has given me a second family. I will graduate with a degree in Early Childhood Education. TCU has one of the best programs in the area, and I can't imagine studying anywhere else. It has been so valuable to be to be able to do field experience since my first semester of college, which is academically one of the most valuable things that TCU can offer me for my future. But also, just as important as the academics, is my new community and family that TCU has given. College is about experience, and so far, these experiences have made everything worth it.

Its a medium size private school with a fun and energetic atmosphere with lots of available options for academic and extracurricular growth.
Through my experience in college, I have learned what it takes to manage time properly, made several friends, branched out spiritually and emotionally, and become involved in things I wouldn?t have had the opportunity to otherwise. I have grown as a person and become more well rounded. College is a valuable stepping stone in growing up. Without these experiences, I wouldn?t be the same as I am now.
Its a bit on the expensive side, although there is several scholarships available.

There are so many things I have gotten out of my college experience. Not just a great education but the feeling of being successful. I love going to school knowing that when I'm done I am going to have a great career. The college experience has made me feel like I have achieved more in life. It lets me know I am headed in the right direction. Not only that, attending college has let me get the hands on experience to my future career, which makes me look forward to it more. Going to college and experiencing it has also motivated me to want to go on further in my education. In that sense college is very valuable and not just in the beginning but when you finish too. Pushing myself to go to college has allowed my confidence to sky rocket and I know I can do anything.

It is very "people" orientented. They care about the individual student. The classes were small and help was always available. The education was top notched. All of my professors were dedicated and held high degrees. There homes were opened to us and they treated us like family.
My college experience was the first time I was away from home and on my own. It taught me responsibility for my own actions and the need to establish priorities in order to be successful. My educational courses were great. I learned a great deal in the classroom as well as with interacting with my professors out of the classroom. The practical experiences prepared me for the career choices I am making today. No one in my family had ever attended college prior to my going. I felt that education was important to me and I did every thing I could to get in to college. It paved the way for my other siblings to be encouraged enough to attend school. Three have attained degrees and two have pursued Masters Degrees. Two others have taken college courses. I could not have become the person I am if I had not attended college. Also, attending a Christian school kept me rooted and grounded in my faith. Those experiences continue to play an integral part in my life today. I send thanks and praises to Texas Christian University and my professors.
Because of the area my degree was in, I did not have much time to socialize with others. I don't feel as though I was able to make social contacts out of my area of study . I did pledge a sority but it was very hard t do things with my sisters because I was either rehearsing or performing. I also wanted to pursue another degree at the same time but was not able to due to the demands of my Music degre.

Texas Christian University is a school filled with energetic students, professors that are eager and willing to give you personal help whenever they can, and lots of great activities and opportunities to interact with your peers.
"Don't stress!" The transition from high school to college can be one of the most exciting times of your life! Sure, all the applications take time and can be very stressful, but just remember you are taking the next big step in your life. College is an opportunity to make friendships that will last a lifetime, and the time spent in the classroom and studying will get you even closer to whatever it is you dream of becoming! You'll learn that every minute spent stressing is a wasted one, so relax and enjoy the change. Remember, today is the first day of the rest of your life. What will you choose to do with it?
A student at Texas Christian University strives to be the best they can be in and out of the classroom, is a fun-loving individual looking to find his or her "nitch", and a student that is willing to "learn to change the world."

I think TCU is unique in that it has a small campus feeling but it's located in the middle of a major Texas city. So it offers the best of both worlds.... you don't feel overwhelmed like you might at a UCLA or UT by a school that just feels gigantic. But on the other hand, you're not stuck on a really small town campus where there might not be much else to do.
TCU has a very strong sorority/fraternity life, so if a student was very anti-Greek, I don't think TCU would be a good fit. I also think the campus tends to be extremely conservative in its politics, so a liberal Democrat would often find themselves at odds with their fellow students. The students at TCU also tend to have a lot of money, so a poor student would have a harder time fitting in.
I'm a HUGE "LOST" fan (which premieres next week and often deals with time travel), so the idea of going back in time and revisiting myself as a high school senior is a fun one. OK, first of all, I would advise my senior self to visit college campuses earlier in the year. I didn't start looking until late in the year, and then it was a mad dash to check out University of Texas, Pepperdine, SMU, Arkansas and TCU. Secondly, I would advise my senior self to relax a bit more and not be so obsessed with my studies. I starred in a lot of theater productions in high school, and those experiences would turn out to be just as valuable as my academic studies. Thirdly, I would tell my senior self to get out there and talk to college students on the campuses in which I was interested. With Facebook, there are plenty of opportunities to get the inside scoop. Finally, I'd advise my senior self to ditch my HS boyfriend! He's way not good enough for me, and besides, there are lots of great people and experiences to discover in college! :)
