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.

8 Things Your RA Wants You to Know


Moving into a dorm your first year of college can be very intimidating. You've seen the movies, you've talked to your older friends, but you're still a little nervous. We all were a little nervous moving in our first year, anyone who says otherwise is lying. The movies aren't entirely accurate, especially when it comes to the RAs. Here's a list to help guide you a little when moving into a residence hall your freshman year, and here's exactly what to expect from your RA.

These are seriously helpful hints from a previous RA, if you know these things going in your freshman year in the dorms will be a breeze when it comes to RAs. Read the list and dominate your freshman year, because these are the things your RA wish you knew.

1. We are friendly, therefore we love friendly people.

Don't even pretend like you're too cool for your RA because that will either make them completely resent you or try way too hard to get you to open up. I can tell you right now that those are two things you definitely don't want. Don't be afraid to say hi or go out of your way to introduce yourself, we like that.

2. Don't kiss up.

No one likes a kiss up, not even your RA. If you try kissing up chances are we are just going to be slightly annoyed and slightly suspicious of you for the rest of the year.

3. Be smart.

Here's the catch to RAs: they are there to make sure you follow all the rules of the hall. We know you're going to go out and do things you're probably not old enough to do, but be smart about it. Don't drink in the halls, especially if you're not even legal to drink. Don't go out and get wasted only to come back and trash the halls. You can go out and do your own thing, and as long as you don't cause any problems throughout the hall then you won't get in any trouble.

4. We want you to come to events.

We put on these events specifically for you, so when you don't come it sucks for us. Don't be afraid to just stop by for the food, because we will honestly be happy to see you.

5. We aren't stupid.

We know when you're trying to get on our good side so we won't get you in trouble, we know when you're drunk, we know when you're doing things you shouldn't be doing. We are simply RAs, we aren't stupid.

6. We are students too.

We are there to help you adjust to college, it's literally our job. So don't be afraid to reach out, we're students too, we know what the college transition is like and we are there to help you.

7. Don't you dare turn to passive-aggression.

Being passive aggressive will solve exactly zero of your problems. Don't be passive aggressive to your roommate, to your neighbor, or even to the people that live down the hall.

8. We aren't there to spite you.

We are just doing our job, we aren't trying to annoy you or trying to get you in trouble. So don't be upset when we bust you for drinking in the dorms because you're not allowed, not of age, and it's our job. In the end, it's not our fault it's yours.

These helpful tips will make your time in college just a little easier. College can be hard and having troubles where you live isn't something that you want. So know what your RA wants you to know, and dorm life will be a breeze.

5 Ways To Make The Most Of Each Day

Don't wait until tomorrow to start


Checking off everything on your to-do list is easier said than done. It requires commitment, but above all, it requires creating healthy habits. It does not matter if you are a student, in the workforce, or even a stay at home parent. Who doesn't want to be productive and make the most of their day? It takes practice and you can't change overnight. I put together the top 5 tips to be the best version of yourself each and every day.

1. Morning time = YOUR time.

Each morning you wake up, focus on what you want to accomplish that day. Don't just open Instagram and mindlessly scroll through all the pictures of the people that you probably barely like. As soon as you wake up, drink a huge glass of water, take your personal time to wake up and think about how you want to tackle your day. Even if your goal is to watch as much Netflix as possible, at least you have a goal with a plan. This also is where it pays off to have a calendar to keep track of your future plans.

2. Don't try to do so much at once.

Stop trying to do a million things at once. This inevitably raises your stress and counteracts the whole concept of being productive because you're just too overwhelmed. It is much more efficient to take on one task at a time and finish it with the most effort you can give. You will feel like you have accomplished more when everything isn't half-assed.

3. Pray.

You can't do this thing called life on your own... We aren't meant too. Look to him when you need that boost in your day. God will bring good things your way.

4. Get a good sweat sesh in.

It is proven over and over again that a daily habit of exercising increases your health, happiness, and overall being. Exercise can actually give you more energy, as crazy as that sounds. When you sit around all day, don't you feel more tired? Maybe even sore? Go to the gym for even 30 minutes and you can change your entire mindset throughout the day.

5. Be present with other.

I know I put this last, but this is an example of saving the best for last. I can not stress enough how important it is to be present with the people around you, in public and private. Put away down things that distract you. There is a big world out there. Engage in conversations with others around you. People will remember how you make them feel, positive or negative.

Your life is simply days following days. It is up to you to decide if you enjoy those days or barely survive those days. In the end, the life we choose to live is determined by the choices that we make each and every day. Begin each day by doing something different, big or small, and watch your life change.
