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.

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.
My visit to TCU when looking for the right college for me fit perfect on my college checklist. They have it all! From outstanding academics to the most amazing school spirit all around. Being on campus made me fall in love with the energy of the campus. There is so much to do, besides just the studies. People are kind and the atmosphere all around was what made this feel like a hopefully, soon to be, home for me.
