Exhibit in corporate offices to showcase student art

Graduate student Shelley Hampe said the art department's connection with its students has changed her as an artist.

The instructors give students space and time to develop, which is rare, and through this she has become more honest in her work, Hampe said. One of the ways she has learned is through TCU's exhibits, like those at the Fort Worth Contemporary Arts gallery.

The "Experiencing Perspectives" exhibit, which opened Oct. 28 in the corporate offices of financial leasing company Daimler Financial Services, showcases two pieces of Hampe's work.

Students choose McCain in mock election

Regardless of the outcome of Tuesday's election, students, faculty and staff have chosen Sen. John McCain as their presidential pick in a mock election held on campus Monday.

A booth was set up outside the library as the Programming Council polling site. At the end of three hours of voting, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 276 votes were cast.

The next administration will have the responsibility to make changes to economic policy and reform the financial sector.

Senior takes it one step at a time

Trekking through the Scottish terrain was not something Kristen Chapman was accustomed to. The senior marketing major had never camped a night in her life, so five days in the wilderness was quite a feat.

But as she rambled through the woods alone one night, she started to feel something change. With each step, everything that had caused her anxiety before seemed to be falling at her feet. Soon she came to the edge of the tree line. As she took a few more steps, she found herself in a clearing in the middle of the stars.
