Clark, Ol' Rip, Spike, Thorp or Victory?

TCU 360 and Ann Louden, the chancellor’s associate for external relations, will announce the winning name for the new frog statue tomorrow at noon. A plaque with the winner’s name and the new frog’s name will also be installed.

The university's new statue, a sculpture of a semi-pointed horned frog, is located between Scharbauer and Reed halls. Louden took responsibility for the acquisition and modification of creator Joe Spear’s frog.

The Name the Frog contest featured names from four current students and one graduate student. The five names were chosen by TCU 360 and Louden out of 618 submissions.

The voting ran from Thursday through Monday and the names racked up 521 votes combined. The winning name triumphed with 33 percent of the votes.

Students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend tomorrow’s plaque installation.
