A World-Class University Experience
- At New Student Orientation, incoming students and their family members are introduced to the university while learning about what it means to be a member of the TCU community of scholars.
- New students have the opportunity to experience Frog Camp in Texas, Colorado, D.C., and abroad. About 70 percent of the incoming first-year class participates in this summer program designed to introduce students to the mission, values, and culture of the TCU community.
- At the Chancellor’s Assembly, a celebration of TCU’s academic life, incoming students march into Daniel-Meyer Coliseum to the applause of faculty and staff members clad in academic regalia. The event concludes with the candlelight passing of the Torch of Knowledge.
- TCU students have the opportunity to participate in programs designed to develop a sense of belonging and the skills and self-confidence needed for academic and personal success. Through transitional programs, they are provided with opportunities to grow and learn at all levels of development.
- The 2nd-Year Pinning ceremony is a celebration for sophomore students designed to foster a stronger connection and deeper affinity to their class and to TCU while recognizing their role as rising campus student leaders.
- The TCU Leadership Center offers a wide variety of co-curricular experiences that allow students to explore contemporary leadership topics while becoming ethical and responsible citizens in the global community.
- Students have the chance to become involved in the University through more than 225 academic, professional, cultural, sport and social organizations.
- TCU’s signet ring, which displays the University’s seal, is presented to Horned Frogs in a special ceremony at the beginning of their senior year.
- Each year, the 50th reunion class hosts a weekend of events, including marching in the May Commencement processional, symbolizing the lifelong ties that Horned Frogs forge with their alma mater.
Point of pride:
From running with the Bleacher Creatures to making the Senior Toast to attending the 50th reunion, Horned Frogs forge lifelong ties with TCU and each other.
