Texas Christian University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
The BSW (Bachelor's in Social Work) Program at Texas Christian University is incredible, and I say this with high confidence because I experienced it first-hand. Not only does TCU offer a variety of courses, but these classes push one to be ready to launch their career after graduation. The classes I took were not easy whatsoever, but also not too difficult where one can still thrive and be successful in the class. The BSW program that they offer is so incredible that I am going back in the fall to get my Master's in Social Work. Choosing to attend TCU is undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made.
The school is a medium sized Private school. Most of the students are upper-middle class, so if you are not of that class, sometimes it doesn't feel like you fit. However, you will find a niche to fit into. The teachers for the most part are great. The classes are difficult, but not impossible, and because of small class sizes, you can actually meet and get to know the professors. The campus is beautiful and the classes are close enough so that you always have time to make it from class to class. And after graduation, the name recognition helps finding jobs in the metroplex.
Texas Christian University is not only my alma mater, it is my home. TCU is a community of scholars, friends and football that will keep you coming back years after you graduate. The quality of education is recognized by students, alumni and the world for a reason. Class sizes are small and professors treat each student as an individual - many of them continue to keep in touch after graduation (which is excellent for graduate applications and gaining employment). It is never hard to find something to do at TCU, especially during football season. I was not in a sorority, but many friends invited me to greek life events with open hearts and I never felt excluded. The friends that I met during my undergraduate studies have now become a part of my family. I would recommend TCU to any college senior who is looking for a welcoming community that values education and encourages personal growth.
I would surely recommend TCU to those who can afford it or got a great scholarship. I received a great education, a wonderful clinical placement in the Miller Speech and Hearing clinic, and had all the access to professors that I wanted. One thing I wish I would have been able to experience at TCU is more diversity. Most people are of the same racial group, socio- economic class, and religion. This made me crave new experiences and opinions; however, there are plenty of opportunities for community outreach and to interact with populations outside of the "TCU bubble". If diversity is important to you, there are ways to seek it out.
TCU provided an excellent learning environment. With small classes and easily accessible professors, I was able to work through any challenges I encountered. The Neeley career center provided generous support and the interview and resume skills learned in classes and with the help of the career center gave me confidence. During multiple different interviews, employers have been impressed at my skills and confidence and attribute it to the background I received at Neeley.
The program was great as it prepare me for real world scenarios. The college was a great place to meet different people from different backgrounds. The school has a strong alumni presence in the community. The school had great faculties and a variety of classes to take to accommodate working students.
I absolutely LOVED Texas Christian University. I can't speak highly enough for my horned frogs! The school atmosphere is amazing, including great football games. And the program for CRJU is incredible. Amazing supportive teachers and career networking that helped me obtain a position for the State of Texas as soon as I graduated. I feel extremely knowledgeable in my job, and I have the ability to expand upon my bachelors into so many difference fields because of the amazing and diverse education I received. I have several friends who graduated at the same time as I did, and they too already have positions in the career choice, or have positions lined up to start soon. I've met very few TCU grads who have struggled finding a job after college. The alumni community is amazing as well and I have found so many people at my current job who are alumni themselves. The who town of Fort Worth is crazy for the horned frogs and couldn't ask for a better college experience before and after I graduated!
TCU is a great school for people looking for a well rounded college career. The options are endless. The class size is perfect for those who learn better in a smaller environment. Professors are very willing to help and love to be asked for help.
TCU is an amazing college with a big time university feel, but the personalization of a small, private school. It has everything there is too offer if you are willing to get involved and meet new people. I will forever bleed purple!
Overall this is a good school. Brite Divinity School has some excellent professors. The Masters of Divinity program however, has too many hours of classes that do not prepare you for practical ministry Most of my practical ministry skills were learned at stole camp. Also, if you are a second career ministry student, be aware that Brite could care less about you. They do not have night and evening classes for second career students like Phillips does. Brite expects you to be able to go to school full-time which is unrealistic if you are already in a career. Brite has also lagged way behind in creating online classes....can we just say they are in the stone age! .
