Somewhere in the far west end of Fort Worth,
near a highway named after a professor, is
a little nature preserve near Lake Worth.

About 10 miles west of downtown on the
Jacksboro Highway is the Fort Worth Nature

in almost all forms of Texas scenery.
There are rolling hills, limestone outcrops and

Life skills reflected through school mission

Four years. It is complete, a success.

People will be sentimental about the upcoming graduation day, and to be honest, I may tear up a little after crossing the stage.

College has taught me the soft skills that are required to get by in the job market. I'm not saying that knowing how to pour a beer without spilling is an applicable trait to put on my resume, but there were other valuable attributes I gained in college.

Some students left in loan limbo

College is often referred to as the "best four years of your life."

Parties, all-night cramming for exams and everlasting friendships all make up the years spent in life after high school. However, debt and loan issues are ongoing and plague students years after crossing the stage at graduation.

The university's luck with adverse weather near holiday breaks is becoming a trend. There were ice storms before dead days in fall 2005, severe winds before finals in spring 2006 and the day before Spring Break, some late season wintry weather is moving through the Metroplex.

As of 2 p.m. Thursday, the campus was closed due to the weather conditions, according to a mass e-mail sent from the university.

Extra-inning game comes to close with TCU win

Lupton Stadium turned into a chessboard during the late innings of the Wednesday night game between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Texas State University Bobcats.

With two outs in the top of the ninth Jim Schlossnagle's Horned Frogs were within one pitch of shutting the door on Ty Harrington's Bobcats.

Young voters active in political process turning words to action

As Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John McCain and Mike Huckabee continually grab headlines with their campaign tours across America, the political interest among students is growing.

Although TCU is traditionally viewed as a conservative campus by groups such as The Princeton Review, the 2008 Presidential Eleciton is fast becoming a time of change.
