Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very freindly and outgoing, we tend to do many things outside of the classroom that help develop lasting friendships.

TCU is small enough that you know most of the people on campus. The professors have small classes so they really get to know their students personally and tend to work with them when it comes to grades on assignments and tests. The school spirit is also very high, everyone is proud to say that they attend TCU.

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

You need to go into college knowing who you are. There are many things that will try to change you and make you a different person, but if you can hold on to your identity and uniqueness, college will be very rewarding. Dont feel like you have to compromise yourself to fit in, there are people who will be with you because you are yourself. Be confident in yourself enough to find the group of people that make you a better person. Also, get involved on campus early through clubs or organizations. This will make you feel active and like the college or university is home. College can be whatever you make it, just make sure that you participate in events and activities that improve your identity, not detract from it.

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

Visit the school! It makes a world of difference to see if you can actually see yourself on the campus. And be open-minded. Get involved and participate in the classes you are in, even if you don't like them. Keep up to date on projects and reading. And get to know at least one person in your class to depend on if you're absent or need a study budy.

Someone who wants to get involved, enjoys football games, and is somewhat greek-minded, or willing to become greek-minded.

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
