WHAT I LIKED

Small university with the feel of a large campus community. There's always plenty of opportunities for community involvement around Fort Worth, and with small class sizes for your major, chances to get to know your professors well. Academic rigor depends upon your major and the type of courses. Personally, I found the biology and chemistry courses the most challenging.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Tuition cost is quite high.

WHAT I LIKED

It is a great size university - about 10,000 students. It's large enough to have great activities (Big 12 football team!) but small enough so that class sizes are small and you know your professors. TCU offers many activities for the students - concerts, guest speakers, etc. that make the campus fun.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only negative thing I can say is that the cafeteria food is not great.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

TCU is a great university with many resources to help you achieve your academic goals. The class sizes are relatively small so communicating with professors and TAs is relatively easy. The campus isn't large so the walk between classes is short. The campus itself is gorgeous and makes the walk to class much more enjoyable.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Parking can be a struggle if you have classes in the middle of the day. Definitely recommend utilizing rate my professor when you set up your schedule.

WHAT I LIKED

TCU is wonderful. The campus is the prettiest one I have ever seen. There are lots of food options and they are good and healthy. Lots of opportunities to make friends. The dorms are much nicer than other schools. It is just wickedly expensive.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Way too expensive.

WHAT I LIKED

To be frank, my education experience at TCU thus far was something I was not expecting. Overall, I would say I had a good experience, but this is because of many factors. My roommates foremost were difficult to deal with until the end of the first semester when I matured, contributing somewhat to the negative aspect of my experience. However, the independence and the sense of community really made it worthwhile. I want to be honest, your college experience could totally be different than mine, however, in whatever circumstance you're in try to make the most of it. In whatever way it may be.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The parking is terrible and considering that in the 2022-2023 school year TCU is planning to decrease parking, bringing a car wouldn't really be the best idea as TCU itself is already a small campus compared to other universities. Also, the food is mediocre at best. There are some days when they serve fantastic food but for the most part, it's kind of bad. Especially since they don't have a wide variety of food.
