| Honestly, the people that say that you have to be Greek or unoriginal to fit in are just people who don't try and who let stereotypes get in the way. If you're saying that people are closeminded because you're different, maybe YOU'RE the closeminded one for thinking they're all the same. I'm not a typical sorority girl, not blonde and anorexic and rich, but I am in a sorority (a good one too, not bottom tier) as well as several organizations on campus. Even before rush I made several friends in my dorm; after rush, though I am close with several girls in my sorority, my best friends are in other sororities or not in sororities at all. It's the amount of effort that YOU put in. The people here are sweet and among the most giving I've ever met, in all houses or in no houses. No one flaunts money around that I've met, and many of the people I've met do not intend to become billionaires or anything snooty; though our business program is top notch, most students I know came here because of the social work, nursing, or education programs, which aren't really thought of as big bankin' jobs.|
As for academics, I'd say I'm fairly bright-- I'm in the honors college, and you can truly make the university education what you want it to be because departments are so helpful and really work with you so that you can basically do whatever you want; I'm a triple major. Everyone in each department knows me by name, and I had a professor go out of her way to invite me to take her limited-enrollment senior-level class as a sophomore because she thought I would be great in it and that I would get a lot out of it. I feel comfortable in all class discussion and if I don't understand something, I get a professor's help without going through a TA.
Grade divide is nonexistent--I hang out with freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and though the party scene is big, you can definitely still find low-key, non-shwasted people on weekends. TCU is a fantastic environment that sponsors community, fun, and learning from others, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. You truly have to make it what you want it; everyone hating on Greek life just didn't get a bid from the house they wanted or is an awkward "I hate society" hipster who was closeminded to begin with. You can't expect people to give you a chance if you wrote them off as snooty to begin with.

| Honestly, I wouldn't go to TCU if I could go back. This department is TINY. There are classes that everyone in the department must take that are only offered one section one semester. registration is a nightmare. I can't count how many times I've been told they only make exceptions for graduating seniors. Well I can't get there without taking the classes. Some faculty attempt to be helpful, but most don't understand. They especially don't understand the concept of working and going to school at the same time, so if you do that and try to block your classes accordingly good luck to you,because everything is one section one semester in this kinesiology department. Ohh and they let athletes and athletic trainers register before you (and guess what that's a lot of students with kinesiology majors) so good luck getting into classes. |
