Texas Christian University quickly becomes a second home to all of its students. Current students welcome the new students to the frog community by getting them connected and involved. Academically, the teachers care about their students and want the best for them. The classes are a small size to encourage participation. Geographically, TCU is close to urban areas such as Dallas yet, has the country aspect in the Stockyards. One can find a variety of interests around TCU. Go Frogs!

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.
