Little tunes go a long way

"Take Me Out to the Ball Game" isn't the only song Horned Frog fans hear at Lupton Stadium during a baseball game.

Walk-up songs in baseball have become an important aspect of the game and vary in genres from hip-hop to rock to country.

Senior pitcher Steven Maxwell said he chose the punk rock song "Firestarter" by the English band Prodigy. He said he decided to keep his song from last year because he had a good season.

"It's kind of a random song but it really gets me pumped up," Maxwell said.

University may add new fraternities

The university and the Interfraternity Council have invited three national fraternities 8212; Kappa Alpha, Beta Theta Pi and Delta Chi 8212; to begin the process of potentially becoming new fraternities on campus, IFC Adviser Keith Becklin said.

Becklin said the IFC planned to add one or two fraternities within the next 24 months, and, if there is a demand, a third fraternity. Sessions will be held early next week for the fraternities to present themselves to the TCU community.

Cafe Brazil CEO: New location a success so far

Cafe Brazil CEO Brant Wood said the first two weeks of the restaurant's location in the GrandMarc have been better than expected 8212; the new staff has adjusted to the busy hours and no major equipment or facility issues have arisen.

"All of the feedback on the food has been overwhelmingly positive. Everyone is happy to have us in Fort Worth, and we're glad to be here," Wood said.

He said the initial success of the restaurant has been because of the feedback of customers, and that there had been minimal use of advertising.
