Over last few seasons, the Horned Frogs have traveled to every corner of the United States and have also flown outside the continental U.S. to Alaska for a match at UAAnchorage. Part of the well-rounded experience of being a Horned Frog shooter is the ability to see and learn about different parts of the country that one might never have had the chance to experience. When the matches are over and the scores are all tallied, TCU Head Coach Karen Monez enjoys taking the team to see the local sights from the beautiful beaches of Lake Tahoe to the mesmerizing views of Alaskan ice sculptures. This season, the Frogs will once again scatter across the country competing against the very best competition in the country. But once the match is over, the good times begin, and the best memories are those away from the firing range. 2 WWW.GOFROGS.COM The TCU Experience Home Facility T The TCU Rifle Range he TCU Rifle Range is located in the ROTC Building on the campus of TCU and features multiple shooting lanes as well as the latest technology in targeting systems.

With $515million of construction completed in recent years, TCU offers a vibrant living and learning community, mentoring faculty, scores of opportunities to develop leadership skills on campus and an endowment listed 62nd among colleges and universities in the country. It’s a friendly and diverse campus. Students benefit from the strengths and resources of larger institutions but in a small college environment. They can choose from 100 undergraduate areas of study, participate in innovative programs, such as entrepreneurship and nurse anesthesia, and take part in service learning. Their professors are leaders in their fields, and the academics are rigorous. A global perspective permeates TCU, and students have numerous opportunities to study abroad. With a 14:1 student/faculty ratio and a teacher-scholar model that results in close, mentoring relationships, TCU fosters discovery, creativity and leadership. It’s a culture that enables the search for meaning and success. A TCU education is more than the sum of semester hours - it’s an exciting living and learning experience that grows from the mission, “to educate individuals, to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community.” 6 T TCU: Then and Now CU was founded in 1873 by Addison and Randolph Clark in Thorp Spring, Texas, as AddRan Male and Female College. The school was changed to AddRan Christian University in 1889 followed by a location change to Waco in 1895. In 1902, the name was once again changed to Texas Christian University and was relocated to downtown Fort Worth in 1910 when the college in Waco was burned. In 1911, TCU opened three new buildings on the present campus, which has been a part of the community for 98 years. Today, TCU encompasses 271 acres in a residential neighborhood five miles from the heart of downtown Fort Worth - a welcoming city with a vibrant mix of commerce, culture and entertainment. In recent years, TCU has invested over $360-million in new facilities in addition to upgrades to residence halls, classrooms and laboratories. Prior to the beginning of the 2008-09 academic campaign, TCU had completed or was in the midst of over $155-million in new buildings and renovations. Always on the cutting edge, TCU offers high-tech classrooms and wired/wireless networking throughout the campus to provide easy, secure access to information technology resources.

The scientific name for this Texas reptile is phrynosoma cornutum; in Greek, phrynos means “a toad” and soma means “body” - in Latin, cornutus means “horned.” Their primary diet is 80-to-100 red harvester ants per day. The typical Horned Frog is three-to-five inches long. Horned Frogs are cold-blooded animals that have an unusual pineal gland, resembling a “third eye” on the top of their head, which zoologists believe is part of their regulation system. T When angered or frightened, Horned Frogs can squirt a fine, foot-stream of blood from their eyes. The Pride of the Purple raditions run deep at TCU, and it begins with the Horned Frog. Some say the Horned Frog was chosen because the football practice field was overrun with the small, spiny lizards. Others say its feisty attitude simply matched the tough frontier spirit shown by TCU itself. Either way, every student-athlete that dons the Purple and White is proud to be called a Horned Frog. The Horned Frog has been TCU’s mascot longer than TCU has been the University’s name. Four students helped make the decision in 1897, when AddRan Christian College (renamed TCU in 1902) was located in Waco. For over 100 years, the Horned Frog has been the calling sign of those that wander the campus of TCU. Other traditions at TCU include the school’s colors of Purple and White. The former represents royalty; the latter a clean game. Swaying while singing the alma mater is a must as is learning how to do the Horned Frog hand sign. (Make a peace sign; fold those two fingers and you have it!) Every student needs a little help sometimes so when they have a big test coming up, they walk straight to the center of campus to rub the nose of the Horned Frog sculpture. New students fresh to the TCU campus may not have any idea what Riff Ram Bah Zoo means now, but they’ll quickly discover that it’s one of the oldest and proudest cheers in the country. If there is one thing that every student will leave TCU with, it’s the pride of knowing that you are forever a HORNED FROG! 8 The Horned Frog was named the State Reptile of Texas. Alma Mater Hail All Hail, TCU Memories Sweet, Comrades True Light of Faith, Follow Through Praist to Thee, TCU Fight Song We’ll raise a song, both loud and long To cheer our team to victory For TCU, so tired and true, We pledge eternal loyalty. Rah, Rah, TCU! Fight on boys, fight, with all your might Roll up the scores for TCU Hail white and purple flag whose heroes never lag, Horned Frog, we are all for you!

There is no limit to the number of times a prospect may visit a campus at his/her own expense.

The Frogs had never advanced to the NCAA Championships until three seasons ago, but since then has posted three consecutive top-five finishes. The Frogs also had the honor of being the only all-female squad of the eight competing teams at the NCAA National Championships where seven teams were co-ed programs. The Frogs hosted the smallbore competition at the TCU Rifle Range, located in the ROTC Building on campus, while air rifle competition took place in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. Large screens displayed the targets of all shooters, and spectators could see the shots as they were fired, which were then scored instantly.
