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?

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.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The school has a very strong science and business school. The nursing school puts out a huge percentage of nurses in the area.

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.
