The Mary Couts Burnett Library used to close on Sundays … until students waged a gentle protest.
TCU’s first homecoming had parades and class parties – but no football. The game came later.
Since 1970, the residents of Brachman Hall have been remotely located but fiercely loyal to one another and the place they called home.

From ice storms to heat waves, Horned Frogs share their recollections of the wild, wacky and weird
During World War II, TCU was home to the U.S.S. Jarvis and the U.S.S. Clark.
In recent issues, we asked readers to share the most valuable lesson learned during their time at TCU. Whether a person, a class, a professor or an event, the examples shared by alumni inspired us.
