When have you rubbed the Horned Frog statue’s nose for good luck?

In October, a Huffington Post blog picked our TCU Horned Frog statue as one of the most-loved statues on college campuses. TCU Magazine readers shared about the times when the campus landmark brought them good fortune.

“Graduation weekend for one last time before I moved back home to Ohio. It was bittersweet, sort of a sad goodbye and thank you all in one.”

“Before every home game.”

“Last Saturday, it must have worked: TCU 82, Texas Tech 27.”
