So far my experience at TCU has been amazing! The atmosphere the faculty and students create is so welcoming and makes you feel right at home. I enjoy the size of the school as well as the location, it is a smaller university, but is located in a large city. There are always activities available to the students and tons of free merchandise and food, which is awesome for college students. The entire faculty is also one of the best features of the school, because they do everything they can to make sure you succeed and achieve your goals. TCU is also has a great athletic program and all the sporting events are free for students, unlike some schools where you have to purchase passes. All the facilities on campus are of the highest quality and have the best equipment regardless of the building. Its an incredible school and it would be a great choice for any student looking to join the horned frog family.
Review Texas Christian University
As a first year sophomore at TCU, I believe TCU has exceeded my expectations at making me feel welcome on campus. The campus is beautiful and there are always fun events to do on campus! I really love how TCU has a Freshman Frog camp! This camp really helped to make some new friends and come out of my comfort zone with being more social. In addition, this camp really helped my be more excited for college because not only did I no longer have to worry about not knowing anyone, I was excited to see what else TCU had in store for me on this vibrant campus. I have been welcomed at every turn by classmates and professors.
I'm not a student at Texas Christian University but I have gone multiple times for school field trips. The campus is very beautiful and well put together. The food is also great, they have a variety of foods to choose from so if you're a picky eater than no problem! The only problem is Texas Christian University isn't that much diversed. But the school is great overall, they offer many majors and summer ready programs for students whiich is very helpful.
