11 Reasons To Go To TCU

11 Reasons To Go To TCU

Call me biased, but TCU is honestly the best college on Earth.

Call me biased, but TCU is honestly the best college on Earth. Here are a few reasons why if you don't already go to TCU, you should!

1. It's the perfect size.

Not too big, not too small. With 8,000 undergrad students you can't deny the small school, big school feel! You always see a familiar face throughout your day on campus, but it's not too small where you feel like you know everyone's business!

2. Our sports teams, come on!

Between baseball, football, and basketball, every season there's a fun sport to watch and cheer on! Not to mention our sports teams are super talented!

3. There's something for everyone.

Whether you enjoy Greek Life, clubs, leadership programs or intramural sports, we've got it!

4. Our academics are far from subpar.

TCU is ranked #82 in the Top 100 Colleges in the nation with Neeley Business School ranked #24 throughout the nation. Not including all of our other phenomenal academic colleges on campus!

5. You'll never be bored.

Between professional sporting games, rodeos, shopping and the world's largest honkey tonk, you'll never have nothing to do! Downtown Fort Worth is only 5 miles away from TCU's campus and Dallas is only 35 miles away, like I said, you'll never be bored!

6. Our Mexican restaurants will make you want to drink queso.

Torchy's, Chuy's, Fuzzy's....you name it, they've got queso that you'll crave for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

7. School spirit.

It's not just Superfrog that gets us excited. The TCU student body and TCU community all bleed purple, so no school function is ever boring!

8. You'll meet lifelong friends!

At TCU there are so many opportunities to meet some amazing people, but it's the people you meet at TCU that make all the difference! The friends I have made at TCU have challenged me to be the best individual I can be and they've given me some amazing memories to last me a lifetime, that's something not every school can offer!

9. The TCU Ratio.

Just about everyone knows about the TCU ratio, and if you're a college guy, TCU is pretty much your dream school solely for this reason. With at least 60% of the student body being gorgeous, intelligent females, it would be hard to turn down TCU as a freshman college boy!

10. Our study abroad opportunities are amazing.

TCU has its own specialty study abroad programs in London, Florence, Italy, Seville and Spain and coordinated with other schools for students to study elsewhere! A once in a lifetime opportunity!

11. We're not Baylor.

The best reason of all, we aren't Baylor! Enough said.

Can I Have My College Diploma Already?

No? Wrap It Up Then.

Spring break is three weeks away and I am already counting down the days. Why didn't anyone warn me that Sophomore year is so stressful? Don't get me wrong, I am extremely thankful to be given the opportunity to further my education. However, sometimes I just have to put my feelings first, and admit that I feel overwhelmed by my college workload.

Before any adults say “college is easy, you just need to apply your time” I do apply my time! This semester I am taking 18 credits, writing for the Odyssey, and active in two on-campus clubs. For those who are in the same predicament and balance a full/part-time job, I salute you. Recently, on Twitter, I came across a tweet stating “College isn't hard, the work just piles up on you” and related to that completely. I feel teachers should give homework because it gives clarity and practice in concepts that were not understood in class. But homework such as 40 multiple choice questions in macroeconomics, 40 multiple choice questions in accounting, 145 pages to read in fashion, a two page in essay in business writing, 45 pages to read plus a discussion question in international marketing, and 16 short answer questions in organizational behavior per week is excessive! Especially if you are not naturally gifted, so you have to take time outside of class to review lessons. And guess what? Somewhere in between all that work, I have to find time to eat, exercise, socialize, sleep, and apply for summer internships. On top of that, when you suffer from anxiety, managing symptoms is a full-time job in itself.

Its hard when you want to be successful but the process of achieving success requires you climb up a narrow mountain with a broken arm with 20/70 vision.

Or requires you to be this guy.

Nevertheless, When I feel defeated (which is often) I refer to my motivational quotes which states “Build your own dreams, or someone will hire you to build theirs” and “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty” to get me through. College is definitely a never-ending cycle of headaches, but I’m confident that I’ll eventually enjoy the fruits of my labor. Therefore, cheers to 2 ½ more months in the semester.

10 Reasons Villanova University Should Be At The Top Of Your List

Are you even surprised that Campus Corner is on this list?

I knew I loved Villanova University from the first time I stepped on campus. This was back in my junior year of high school. The following two years I adamantly followed Villanova in the hopes that I would end up there. Everything about this school was desirable.

It just seemed like a happy, lively, and loving place. When I was accepted in my senior year, I was ecstatic. This was the place I had dreamed of being, and now my dream was coming true. Now that I am here, I get to love all the things I had previously admired from afar, plus everything I have gotten to experience since getting here.

1. It’s gorgeous campus

From the Oreo to the cherry trees lining the entrance of the St. Thomas of Villanova Church, wherever you go on campus. I know when I was looking at schools, I would always notice the cohesiveness of the buildings around campus.

2. The Spit/Cova

Some people love the Spit and some people hate it, but regardless, upperclassmen will tell you to cherish it while you still have it. In addition, Cova is the best dining hall on campus in my opinion, no contest.

3. Its proximity to Philly

Philly is an amazing city and it’s a mere 30-minute train ride away.

4. Tailgates

If you think your college’s tailgates are impressive, you’ve never been to a Villanova one. You haven’t lived until you’ve partied in the Wells Fargo parking lot for hours while the temperature is in the teens.

5. The small classes

And while this does mean that your professor knows when you skip, this also means that they have a better opportunity of getting to know you on a more personal level.

6. Basketball

Basketball brings Villanova together in the best way possible.

7. Jay Wright

I shouldn’t even have to explain this one.

8. Greek life

Greek life is by no means the be-all end-all of social life at Villanova, and I think that’s what makes it so great. It’s what you make of it.

9. Camp Co

I’m not sorry, you knew this would be on here. Buffalo mozzarella fries forever have my heart.

10. The students

There is an indescribable sense community at Villanova.
