TCU fans have found unusual ways to show school spirit.

With their heads in the clouds and patriotism soaring, the Flying Frogs of the late 1940s ascended to national acclaim.
Built in 1921, the Ballet Building (or “The Little Gym” as it was known for decades) gets a new name as the old relic closes for renovation.
TCU physics students of yesteryear devoted themselves to Dr Pepper.

Every university today distributes viewbooks, brochures and advertisements to publicize its many advantages to prospective students. But marketing the university isn’t a new concept at TCU. Here’s TCU’s 1903 pitch.
