TCU is a great, welcoming place where you can develop into your own person without having to compete against fellow students for attention or resources.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Choosing the right university is a tricky thing. My biggest piece of advice is to visit the school you are interested in for several days while classes are in session. Get a feel for the campus and the students there. Students shouldn't focus solely on a school's reputation, prestige, or big name alumni - find a place you feel comfortable. There are already so many life changes and choices that you'll have in the next four years, its important to find a school where you can meet those challenges confidently. College is about helping you develop into the interesting, dynamic person you can become. If you try to "tough it out" in an environment you know from the beginning doesn't fit you, you may miss out on the opportunities you never would have thought of as a high schooler.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had knows how to really take advantage of professors who devote so much of their time to undergraduate students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit campuses. Meet the students there, meet the facuty and the staff. Take the tours and hang out there. That's when you will know if this is a place you can see youself spending four years of your life. Choosing a college is choosing the place that you are going to make lifelong friends and memories and learn who you truly are. Choose wisely (no pressure). Going to college a shock and a blessing, and finding somewhere you feel comfortable is key in having a great experience. Do your research. Get the college magazines, look at the college website, read blogs, look at Facebooks, anything you can do to know more, do it. Be brave. Don't be afraid to apply to a school that seems out of reach. You'll never know if you don't give it a shot. Be open. College is a place to start over. You can be anyone you want so choose your circle of friends accordingly. Get involved. Join a club, meet new people, go to campus sponsored events. Enjoy it. College is what you make of it. Make mistakes, stay out late and learn who you really are. Good luck.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find the college that fits you best. There are tons of schools out there that people have never heard of that are wonderful schools for certain people and certain majors. Make sure you do research and just don't apply to the big state school because all your friends are and it is the only one that you have heard of.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you are absolutely against the use of alcohol and parties then TCU may not be the bet choice. The majority of the students are white, fairly wealthy, Texans, conservatives, and protestants who dress fairly preppy and join greek organizations. If you are the opposite of all of these things, then you may not enjoy TCU. I do not think you would be particularly uncomfortable here, I just think you may not enjoy it as much as you would enjoy some other schools.

What's unique about your campus?

Small classes, access to faculty, the city of Fort Worth, nice people, fairly strong athletics, nice facilities, good looking girls

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise parents to have their children apply to many colleges. THis allows them to have coices. I would emphasize the size of schools because it really does affect their atmosphere. If you are more on the quiet side, i would recommend a smaller school. To make the most of your college experience, get involved. The more activities you are involved in, the more people you will meet and the more experiences you will gain.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that the fraternity and sorority life was so big. I was not excited about being involved in a sorority, but now i am involved in two (a chirstian sorority and a regular sorority). I love them both and would not change anything. I just wish that I would have known how big the involvement was.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

THe best thing about TCU is the student body. There are so many activities that you can get involved in where you meet a lot of different, new people. It is an amazing experience. Everywhere you go on campus, you are bound to pass some one that you know very well, and someone that you are close with. Because of this close knit university, I would recommend TCU to any prospective student.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise parents and students to apply to many different colleges just so that you are able to choose from the ones that you get accepted to. Size is extremely important because it affects the whole atmosphere of the college. If you are shy, you should attend a smaller school so you are able to make the more personal relationships. To make the most of the college experience you have to realize that there are good things about every school. Get involved and get to know people. The more involved that you are, the more experiences you will gain and the more friends you will meet.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that sorority/ fraternity life was such a big deal. I didn't think that I would like it, but I ended up joining two sororities. (one christian and one regular sorority). It has been a great experience, but I wish I would have known how big they were on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Out of the list of colleges that you are considering, visit them. Talk with prospective faculty and find out if there is anything about their approach to your possible major that intrigues you or makes you want to learn more. If you can establish a connection with your professor, you will be willing to put up with many things that may be considered cons about your school. Try to find friends that share common interest, especially associated with your major. You will be able to think freely with them, bounce ideas off of them, and not have to worry about them detracting from your educational goals.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind who does not take their education very seriously.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that is not striving to be unique in their choice of clothing; the kind of person that likes to dress like their going for a yacht ride.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

TCU is academically oriented, socially focused and an environment where students grow as people in a modern society. There's a sense of school spirit and pride that connect students across campus and even after graduation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college is based on adament academic options but also a deep personal feeling and connection. If the student feels comfortable on campus, and with other students, he or she will be more likely to succeed in an academic environment. College is about a balance between the socially and academically focused aspects of a school. Developing in these ways is something that a college-aged students needs. Parents must realize that adabting to a college environment includes trying to fit in socially and make friens that will last a lifetime. As long as students try their best to succeed academically, they will receive the most out of the college experience.
