From the fireworks at the Chancellor’s Assembly as first-year students to the annual lighting of the Christmas tree and Saturdays at Amon G. Carter Stadium, good times at TCU abound.
Frog Camp with the John V. Roach Honors College in Paris is an indelible memory for Andy Mills, a political science major.
“It was an incredible opportunity to meet great people and explore a new place with them before my time at TCU had really even begun,” said Mills.
Finance major Kelsey Graham, recalled a cold, rainy day during her sophomore year when all of her friends opted to skip class and binge on movies.
“I don’t know why, but it was one of those days that just stuck with me,” said Graham. “Cherish the little moments with your friends and take every experience you possibly can because it will be over before you know it.”
Emily Spaulding, a political science major, is a founding member of the TCU all-female a cappella group, Here Comes Treble. She said starting the organization was the most influential experience of her four years on campus.
“It was such a great thing to be able to start when I got here and to have it grow as I have grown over the past four years,” she said.
Spaulding said if she were to give advice to her first-year self, she would tell her to believe in herself more.
“I would say to myself, ‘Just do it! Don’t worry too much and just embrace all of the fun things TCU has to offer,’” she said.
Talia Pancini, a finance major, said she would tell herself to take the time to get to know as many people as she could. She said that all of her favorite memories from the last four years are because of the people she’s met at TCU.
“This time passes faster than you could ever imagine, so you want to make as many lasting relationships in this amazing place we call home for four years,” Pancini said.
