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

Advice I would give to parents and/or students about finding the right college is to first, go online to the college's website to learn as much information as possible. Second, take a visit to the college where you can take a tour, go to an information session, and talk to an admission counselor. The student should consider if the major he/she wants to persue is dominate or highly emphasised at the college. Also the student should love the environment on campus and off. The student will want to be involved in organizations and activies on campus if he/she attends a college where they enjoy the academic buildings, the student union, and resident's halls to study or hang out with friends. College is about an education, yet the student should also consider the active environment outside of the campus so that he/she will want to be live in the town and explore new places to eat, shop, or hang out with friends and family. In all, the student should find a location where he/she will want to be become a young adult and the parents should fully be supportive.

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

I think the most important factor when deciding on which college to attend is wether or not you see yourself there for four years. The sense of belonging is very important to college students because we are away from home and we need that sense of security!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about TCU are the professors. They know exactly what they're teaching and love their job. A couple of times I had to reconsider my major because I took a variety of courses and all the professors just had that "light" in their job. They start to make their students love that area of study too!

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

Go when school is in session to see what the people are like. And be open minded to your kids trying new things and meeting new people and going new places. Let go of the leash a little bit.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Stereotypically speaking, the rich, white kid who likes Jesus and a cold beer. He or she must be outgoing if they choose to join the Greek organizations and if they choose not to be Greek they must be outgoing so that they meet more people easier.

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

You have to take every factor into consideration. The college's proximity to home, the pros and cons of its location. Also, its important to make sure that it offers a major that is appealing to the student. Greek life is very active and strong in some schools while its not in others. Look into the schools social life and see if its a good fit for you!

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

The social life. The atmosphere, environment and people. The campus offers a lot of activities and is somewhat small, tight-knit community.

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

The location. I like Fort Worth because its not a big city but its close to Dallas, which is. However, there is no beach or mountains in close proximity. Most of our activities are reduced to drinking.

Spend time on campus while school is in session. And walk around and experience student life outside of an organized tour.

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

While the closed-minded people don't necessarily outnumber the open-minded ones, they seem to run the campus sometimes which makes it hard for me to feel comfortable being myself a lot of the time.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anybody can find their niche here, it's just harder, I think, for a more liberal person sometimes.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

nursing and buisness and health studies (chemistry biology nutritional science etc). Also greek life is a big thing. It's great because it's a smaller size so it's more of a family and if u dont know someone you will somehow know someone they know. It's not too small though and everyone can find a little place to fit in.

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

When my parents and I were looking at schools people always told me "you'll just know" when you find the right college. I found 3 colleges that I loved. Visit a lot of colleges and find thing things that you like and dislike in them. Talk to your high school counselor. Take a chance and go somewhere where you won't know a soul so that you can be exactly who you want to be and find new friends that like you for who you are. Try and live somewhere different than what your home is like...or find somewhere that's just like your home and in a different place. (I'm from Omaha and I go to TCU in Fort Worth..very similar cities but different places). Also just be yourself. Don't do things because you're "supposed" to. STUDY! Don't fail your freshman year because classes don't get any easier. Balance your social and academic life. Don't go to a school that's too challenging and have to work all the time to keep up but don't slack off. No regrets--you only get out what you put in.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The stereotype is rich little southern preppy kids. I'm from nebraska and not incrediuby rich and not so preppy. i have kids in my class that fit the stereotype and i have kids from california and then kids that dress all punk rock so anybody can attend this school. What's great about TCU is you can make it whatever you want. everyone is accepting regardless of what ur like

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

I think everyone ends up in a college that works for them. Even if you don't get into the school that all your friends are going to or the place you've wanted to go since you were a little kid, you will find your niche anywhere. Reaching out to new people and living in a new environment is scary but it forces you to grow in ways that you never thought possible. College is what you make of it.

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

We have very little diversity. Wealthy white caucasions dominate the student population, and the Greek system is very strong. There is little tolerance for those who dress differently or are of a different race. There is no violence towards the people who are "different", but it is obvious that they are excluded in certain social groups.

How beautiful the campus is and how caring our professors are. Because of the small class sizes, the professors get to know you extremely well and really care about your future.

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

TCU is an amazing opportunity for any student because of the small class sizes, friendly nature, beuatiful campus, amazing career center, and professors that really do care about you as an individual. The campus has had a lot of new construction that has transformed the campus into an almost idealic setting. TCU is unique in that it is a small private university with all the offerings of a huge state school, including top ranked athletic programs.

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

Finding the right college is a huge decision but everything will work out in the end if you do your research. Before you even consider a college you have to decide what you are looking for in a school. Large or small, public or private, rural or urban setting? Also, don't rule out a college because it's too expensive. If you really like the college , apply and see what kind of financial aid or scholarships you get because you never know. Once you have your criteria for finding a college look at all the school that are fairly similar to those qualities. Don't let your friends talk you into a college. One of the best things that I did was to go to a college where I only knew one person. Once you have your list narrowed down to 5 or 7, go visit them and stay overnight if you can. The best way to see if you would love a college is to take a tour and talk to students there.

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

The business school has prepared me to go out in the business world and wow my employers. With the help of the campus career center, I already have had two internships and am working on my third. I literally have had to do group projects in every one of my classes so I know that I am ready to work with just about anyone when I graduate.
