While there is much that makes TCU unique, each of our counselors has something in mind that is their favorite unique fact about TCU to share. Take a look at some of our staff’s favorite things that make TCU stand out!
I love that when the old student center was torn down, TCU recycled what they could and repurposed it to build some of the furniture that is currently used in the Brown Lupton University Union (BLUU). As an alumna of the University it makes me proud to know that TCU has kept a part of the old student center. Jill Sangl
Just when you thought TCU couldn’t be any more purple or “froggy,” there are purple Horned Frog designs on the ceramic tiles in the restrooms in the Mary Wright Admission Center. School spirit even comes in the form of food at TCU. The Chancellor’s Dining Room offers Jelly Belly jellybeans, special events often include pats of chilled butter shaped like Horned Frogs, the cafeteria in the BLUU has waffle makers that feature the TCU logo, and you can enjoy a “Frog Dog” at TCU football games. The TCU Admission Office is famous for serving purple popcorn at the conclusion of their Monday at TCU programs.
Our mascot! A horned frog is small in size (you can hold it in the palm of your hand), but they are fierce reptiles that spit blood from their eyes to protect themselves from predators!

In 1949, TCU became the first school in the nation to offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Ballet. TCU invests substantially in a variety of programs – academic and co-curricular, from hard science to fine art – which achieve a very impressive breadth and depth of excellence. We have been leaders in this pursuit for quite some time.
