TCU Outlook Winter 2014

  • "Attending this wonderful university has made me realize that the experiences I have here shape who I am now and who I will be in the future. I have this opportunity because of the Horned Frogs who gave before me. I want to be a part of helping future Horned Frogs have this opportunity too."

    —Samantha Forshaw '16
    1. TCU Donor, Speech-Language Pathology Major
    2. Student Foundation Officer and Caller
    3. Deans Scholarship
    4. John V. Roach Honors College
  • "The impact of gifts will be seen for years to come as current and future students become community leaders and as today's cutting edge research becomes a natural part of our lives. Outreach programs are strengthened; bright, energetic undergraduate students are recruited to become teachers; highly talented graduate students select TCU over other universities, and exciting research is conducted by faculty and students."

    —Dr. Molly Weinburgh
    1. William L. and Betty F. Adams Chair of Education
  • "In its first global ranking of EMBA programs, The Economist ranked our program 21st in the world. This is a very competitive category with many very high quality programs. Our program is just over 10 years old, and we face stiff competition in this area. As we move towards the new Neeley building and renovation of the existing ones, we will be able to enhance our competitiveness."

    —Dr. O. Homer Erekson
    1. John V. Roach Dean of the
    2. Neeley School of Business
  • "TCU has helped build my self-confidence and has engrained in me ethics, knowledge, experience, morality and aspiration — all of which push me to strive toward my goals. I've developed relationships with friends and professors whom I believe will be there for me every step of the way. Scholarships were definitely among the top reasons for attending TCU."

    —Laila Abdeljalil '16
    1. Biology Major; Chemistry and Business Minors
    2. Deans Scholarship, MD Anderson Pre-Health Scholarship,
    3. Dr. Robert and Kathryn Talbert Memorial Scholarship

  • "Attending a well-established university like TCU is a blessing and a challenge. Even with a scholarship, I knew I would have student loans for a while. But I wanted to go someplace where I would flourish. I don't regret my decision. I've had the best three years of my life. I've discovered how to take the lessons I've learned and apply them to my future. I'm so grateful for everything TCU has given me."

    —Brent Boudreaux '15
    1. Film, TV, Digital Media Major; Business Minor
    2. Ella C. McFadden Scholarship
  • "One of the more interesting research projects conducted at KinderFrogs has been the Reading Dogs program. Kids read to the dogs – kids who would not read to any person will read to dogs. And the dogs love it. They will start barking when they get to the corner because they're so excited to be with the kids."

    —Dr. Marilyn Tolbert
    1. Jean W. Roach Chair of Laboratory Schools
  • "Holding the Lowe Chair allows me to do the things I do. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to be so involved in the leadership of the Texas State Historical Association, devote so much time to my graduate students, and continue to pursue an active research and publication agenda."

    —Dr. Gregg Cantrell
    1. Erma and Ralph Lowe
    2. Chair of Texas History
