TCU alumnus Tim Halperin competed in this season of "American Idol" until getting voted off Thursday, March 4.
Now, one week later, Halperin said he is excited about the next chapter in his career, beginning with a return to Fort Worth.
Halperin, who graduated this past May, has been playing music since high school, but said he really became serious about pursuing his career as a singer-songwriter after enrolling at TCU in 2006.
Froggie Five-0 was created 13 years ago to provide transportation for female students to make campus safer. This year, student leaders on campus are asking why men can't get rides too.
TCU Police officer Pam Christian spoke at a Residence Hall Association meeting Nov. 4 about safety on campus and the availability of student escorts. Among the topics discussed included adding male student pick-ups by Froggie-Five-0, Residence Hall Association President Eric Russell said.
Students expecting a snow day Friday shouldn't hold their breath.
The area south of Fort Worth is predicted to get snow Friday, but there is only a 30 percent chance of flurries Friday afternoon, and they would affect the area closer to Waco than Fort Worth, said meteorologist Daniel Huckaby of the Dallas-Fort Worth National Weather Service office.
The National Weather Service Web site reported snow accumulation of 0.3 inches in Fort Worth on Wednesday.
Provost Nowell Donovan said snow like Wednesday's would not send students home tomorrow.
