Wandering around the Cross/Talk student art exhibition, sophomore Spanish major Betty Gerecht said she had no expectations for her first visit to a Cross/Talk exhibition. She said she was drawn to an oil painting of a headless woman in a dress. The harsh brush strokes provided texture, and the pastel colors caught her eye.
The painting Gerecht saw is titled "Speechless" by Casee Safford, a junior psychology major and painting minor.
She is not a top university administrator or a sports coach, but most students and staff at the university know Lieu Nguyen.
Her claim to fame? A good memory and an endearing smile.
Nguyen, a cashier at Market Square, is well known on campus for her sweet disposition and her ability to remember everyone's name. She has now been recognized for her hard work by Sodexo, the university's food service provider that offers services to hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide.
The Horned Frogs, now 2-3 in conference, were defeated by Mountain West Conference rival University of Nevada Las Vegas Running Rebels Saturday at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum 70-79.
The game was nationally televised on CBS College Sports, while 4,270 excited fans filled the stands.
The Horned Frogs kept it close through the first half with ball-control offense and hustle with transition defense. They started off the first half trailing by 3 points.
Timely three-pointers in the first half kept TCU within striking distance.
Without an opportunity to break into sports management or marketing, David Lindow found a way. He started the TCU Sports Networking Club, alongside sophomore business majors Kevin Able and Carrie Patterson.
Lindow, a sophomore marketing major and president of the club, said he started the club because he wanted to work in the sports industry one day and wanted to help others on the same path.
