I tried really hard not to like TCU. During my college search process, I realized that as long as I could find flaws in TCU and prove that attending a lovely school in my home state would be better, I was going to be able to convince myself that this time the easy way out was the best way out. But sure enough, I was unable to. The campus was beautiful, the students were friendly and the faculty and staff were all people that I knew would challenge me. So I sent in the housing deposit, packed up my car and headed for Texas.
