Texas Christian University Reviews
I have gone from viewing this school as one for just rich snobs to very proud Frog. The staff are incredible! They extremely personable, supportive, understanding, and mentoring. Yes, the school is still wildly expensive, but thankfully they really try to help worth that too (grants, scholarships, and other financial aid). Plus, the quality of the education is second to none. TCU is a university I'd highly recommend to anyone.
I transferred into TCU at the beginning of the 2017 fall semester from a local community college. They were so incredibly welcoming, and had events and tours specifically for transfer students. There were so many of us, I made a ton of friends! I love this campus, they're constantly doing work on it, making the students' and faculty's lives at school that much more enjoyable. The grass is always green, they change the flowers for the season, there are a ton of resources everywhere you look and all of my professors know me by name because there aren't that many students per class. All around, it's my dream University.
TCU is amazing! I loved the small class sizes, the attention paid to each student by professors, the growth that is encouraged, the amount of ways to get involved on campus and in the community, the delicious food in the cafeteria area, the safety precautions taken, the friendliness and general camaraderie of staff and students, and of course the football! The only thing I was concerned about is the lack of diversity. As such a small school, I expected for there to be more of a mix of cultures and ethnicities to learn from - of course there are opportunities all around as far as cultural learning goes, but the cultural immersion is just subpar I'd say.
