It’s the Education.
TCU is where learning comes to life. It’s where expert professors become your mentors, igniting intellectual curiosity and guiding you on a meaningful path. It’s where a tradition of excellence inspires you to achieve more than you ever expected. Horned Frogs are a community of doers, dreamers, and trailblazers who are ready to change the world.
It’s the Experience.
TCU’s a place where everyone is involved in something. Student interests seem to intersect, yet friends come from all walks of life. You can find your tribe here. Or start your own. It’s a place where a friendly environment opens up opportunities to have fun, try something new, share your talents and expand your skills and capabilities.
It’s the tradition.
What happens on a campus with more than 100 years of Horned Frog tradition? A whole lot of spirit, bonding, and success! When you come to TCU, you’ll stand shoulder-to-shoulder with classmates, cheering the Frogs to victory. A front-and-center student section in the middle of Big 12 Conference action means friends celebrate together in our winning heritage. From football to sand volleyball, baseball to tennis, and basketball to track and field, you’ll revel in our latest successes, and master “Riff Ram Bah Zoo,” one of the oldest collegiate cheers in the nation.
The Horned Frog (actually a lizard) has been TCU’s mascot longer than TCU has been the university’s name
