In our office, each of the admission counselors is responsible for providing the daily information sessions to our guests throughout the year. While the message is designed to be the same, we are given the opportunity to tailor our sessions to what we love most about TCU. Below, the counselors have shared one of their favorite parts of their information sessions and what always seems to leave an impression on our guests.
I always love seeing how people respond to Frog Camp, one of our First Year Experience programs. As far as supplemental new student programs go, TCU is really a leading university in preparing incoming students for success outside of the classroom, in addition to inside.
Much of my information session centers on our unique size. There are no other colleges that play major Division I sports with our size – medium size with an almost exclusive emphasis on the baccalaureate years.
I get excited to talk about the Freedom of Expression page when discussing the admission process. Students are always thrilled to know that they have the opportunity to be unique and express to us something really personal or individual about themselves.
As a parent, I like to provide short, but true stories of my boys’ TCU experiences so visitors can get some insight of “the real deal.”
I love talking about the TCU traditions that we have on campus. It’s especially exciting when there is an alum or two in the group because you can see their faces light up and know that although campus has undergone a numerous about of changes, our traditions remain the same and unite us all.
I really like talking about the relationship between the city of Fort Worth and the university. The fine folks of Fort Worth are very proud of TCU and our students. During football season, if you wear any TCU item (or the color purple) on Fridays, you can receive a discount at various restaurants and stores.
