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.

What's unique about your campus?

Relationships with professors and their availibility to help. Also, the requirement to learn about aspects of life and other cultures that are not always required by other schools.

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

Most classes I've taken are very difficult and require a lot of hours outside class to learn the material. Not necessarily a bad thing because you take a lot of knowledge from each class.

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

Find one that you want to go to, and that you will fit into. If you don't fit in, then you will not like where you are and that will in turn hurt your grades. Have fun, and learn to study well!

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

I consider the worst thing the meal plan. Some might say that it is a minor thing, but when you only have the choice of 4 or 5 things to eat every day, and you are forced to buy the expensive meal plan, it can be frustrating.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

TCU has small classroom sizes so it is extremley personal. Additionally, it's business school has been ranked by the Wall Street Journal as the best business school in the state of Texas, and something like number 19 in the top 50 nationally. The fraternity and sorority life here on campus is a blast as well.

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

To the parents I would recommend being open-minded. Don't try to press a University on your child that you went to, or try to influence you child's decision. Encourage him or her as much as possible. To the students, the minute you enter orientation or whatever other welcoming activities that the University provides, meet everyone. Try to be as sociable and geniunely nice to everyone you meet, as they might end up someday being the person who can get you a job, or assist you in some way. Networking is one of the most important skills that you can learn and develop while in college. Also, while socializing is fun, be careful with alcohol, every year lots of college freshmen drink underage, and there are always a few that drink far too much and die. On a lighter note, be prepared to put your nose to the grindstone the moment you begin classes. Your first semester grades are extremely important, as they set you up to having a stellar GPA the whole of your college career. You don't want to have a bad semester and have to catch up. Most importantly though, relax and have fun.

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

Oftentimes, the administration tries to be controlling of Fraternity and Sorority Life.

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

To let the student make their own choice. It doesn't really matter where you go to college - these days, it seems as though the degree itself is all that matters. If the student is forced by his or her parents to attend one college, for whatever reason (a "big-name" university, or one with a long family tradition, etc), then that student will not be able to have the same experience that he or she would be able to at his or her first choice school. And, if the student is happier with their college choice, then he or she will be happier overall, and will therefore do better in school. To make the most of the college experience, I would simply say that you shouldn't be afraid to try new things and meet new people, because you never know who or what might radically change your life or your perspective thereof.

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

The over-emphasis on fraternity and sorority life. It often seems as though people who aren't in a social Greek organization are left out of TCU.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

TCU offers a multitude of social clubs, fraternities, and organizations that allow you to network and really grow with people on campus. I would strongly encourage you to get involved on campus because it could get very lonely otherwise.

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

Visit the college that you are wanting to attend. You will never really know how you like it until you put yourself in the situation!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell them mostly about the incredible professors that we have here. Our teachers are very intelligent and stimulating. Most of them actually wrote the textbooks that are used in the classrooms.
