Members of the TCU Department of Theatre have spent 20 to 25 hours each week for over two months preparing for this year's spring musical, Richard Rodgers' and Oscar Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!", a classic story about prairie life, the Oklahoma land run and the settling of the West.
Harry Parker, chair of the theater department, said the cast has rehearsed, the costume studio has built over 100 costumes, the scenic studio has created scenery and props for the show and the lighting and sound designers have worked on the lights and tuned microphones.
The defending national champions will shoot for back-to-back national championships this weekend 8212; literally.
The TCU women's rifle team was one of eight squads to qualify for the 2011 NCAA Rifle Championships hosted by Columbus State University on March 11-12. The Frogs will have a chance to defend their crown with the unique privilege of being the only all-girls squad to win a NCAA Rifle Championship.
The Frogs finished their 2010-11 season with a 4,699-4,620 win over Air Force in an NCAA Qualifier.
In the final push for the March 15 deadline to apply for programs in fall 2011, the Center for International Studies is trying to attract more people to the university's Seville program, a study abroad official said.
Alexis Branaman, study abroad coordinator, said the center was encouraging students to attend in the fall to even out enrollment in the program between the fall and spring semesters. She said students have gone during the spring in the past because of a longer semester, better weather and because students don't want to miss activities in the fall on campus.
