Frogstock brings great music, fun to the TCU community before school’s end


    Live music and the aroma of free food filled the TCU Commons by Frog Fountain Wednesday night during Frogstock as students gathered at the end of the regular class session of the spring semester.

    Live music included acoustic performances from TCU students like sophomore pre-med major Scott Mathis, junior English major Dani Smith and senior music major Will Wood. Even re-elected SGA president Cody Westphal played a few notes on stage.

    “In a good way, [Frogstock] was running out of drink, running out of food,” Wesphal said. “Whether students planned on coming to the event or just happened to be walking by, a lot of students got involved. Maybe they stayed for a couple minutes and made a taco or stayed for a couple hours and listened to some great music.”

    Students gathered on the last official day of classes just before finals to find acoustic sessions put on by students and free food from restaurants such as Buffalo Bros. and Chipotle.

    Junior political science major Jake Potter said that this event was a way to allow students to relax.

    “It’s a community building experience,” Potter said. “All the students can hang out, to kind of kick off the an early summer and get people’s minds off school for a bit.”

    Sophomore philosophy major Haley Jacobs said Frogstock is a safe way for people to get out before the last round of exams.

    “It’s a general, intensive release,” Jacobs said. “Students are able to unwind before finals next week and listen to good music.”
