TCU


On September 1, 1873 Addison and Randolph Clark opened AddRan College with just 13 students in Thorp Spring, Texas. Thirty-seven years later the institution, by then known as Texas Christian University, moved to its present location in Fort Worth. Since that time, the student body and campus sizes have changed, but the mission remains the same—“To educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community.” Today, over 9,500 students call TCU home and live out the many traditions that make TCU a vibrant student experience. This book highlights some of those traditions so you can better understand what it truly means to be part of the TCU Horned Frog Family.

In 1980, head cheerleader Chad Schrotel, ’82, and his peers decided a hand signal would be a great way to show solidarity and promote school spirit. They settled on the current curled-finger salute, because the protruding knuckles resembled the horns on a real horned frog. When teaching new students and fans how to make the sign, teachers often use the phrase, “make a peace sign and squish it down.”

Purple

White

The official TCU colors are purple and white. Purple represents royalty and white for a clean game. According to TCU history, these school colors were most likely adopted in 1896.

Dubbed by ESPN as “the most unique in all of college football,” the Frog Horn has become a trademark of TCU. The 3,000-pound locomotive horn was built in three weeks in 1994 by a team of engineers from Burlington Northern Railroad Company and donated to TCU. Since that time, it has appeared at football, baseball, bowl games and parades. The Frog Horn is traditionally sounded each time the Horned Frogs score during a game. Its registers at 120 decibels, billows clouds of white smoke and has a blinking purple and white frame.

10

SuperFrog In 1979, TCU Athletics Promotions Director John Grace created SuperFrog as part of a campaign to promote TCU on campus and in the local community. Grace wanted a mascot that would help create a fun atmosphere at sporting events (in contrast to the previous mascot, Addie, who was made from papier-mâché and looked like a dragon). In 1999, SuperFrog received an image makeover replacing his potbelly and TCU t-shirt with a muscular physique and updated wardrobe. SuperFrog is a popular representative of the University—being recognized by ESPN as the nation’s top mascot and also having his own Facebook page.

King Tower is the five-story clock tower connected to the Brown-Lupton University Union. Built in 2008, this tower is named after Trustee Roger King, ’63, and his wife Roberta. In just a few short years, this distinct architectural feature has become a campus landmark. The King Tower lights up TCU purple each evening.

Frog Fountain A focal point of campus life for four decades, Frog Fountain features four stylized lotus leaves, a motif chosen because of the historic association of the lotus with education. Originally placed in front of the Brown-Lupton Student Center, the fountain was refurbished and moved to the Campus Commons in 2008.

Frog Fountain was created with a gift from oilman H. Houghton Phillips, Sr., of San Antonio, and his wife, Winnie Phillips.

Horned Frog Sculpture

Ol’ Rip

With a cocky tilt of his head and spikes bristling, the Horned Frog Statue rests at the heart of campus in the outdoor mall adjacent to Sadler Hall. Commissioned by the Student Government Association in 1984, the statue was created by international sculptor and TCU-parent Seppo Aarnos. Since its installation almost 30 years ago, it has become a tradition for students to rub the frog’s nose for good luck before a test.

Ol’ Rip is the name of the bronze horned frog sculpture located between Scharbauer and Reed Halls. Named by Kyle Morales, ’12, the sculpture was created by artist Joe Spear and placed on campus in 2012. Ol’ Rip is named for “Old Rip,” the legendary horned frog that survived 31 years (1897–1928) inside a time capsule in the Eastland County Courthouse.

TRADITIONS

Horned Frogs

For students and visitors looking to catch a glimpse of a horned frog, TCU features two realistic sculptures on campus.

The Megalith at TCU, more commonly called Froghenge, is the University’s response to the New Stone Age. It is an idealized replica of a type of megalithic monument that was erected in northeastern Scotland about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Composed of 11 blocks of quartzite from Idaho and 10 blocks of Oklahoma sandstone, Froghenge sits outside the Bailey and Palko Buildings and Lowe Hall. Some of the stones that make up Froghenge have special meanings, specifically:

The monument is currently used as an outdoor classroom. According to the legend of Froghenge, no one within the circle may knowingly tell an untruth, and anyone who loses their temper in debate must leave the circle immediately.

TRADITIONS

Froghenge

Search for Meaning

The stone pointing to the Chapel represents the driving force that connects the past to the future.

Stone of Happiness

The stone pointing to Lowe Hall represents the happiness that comes from knowledge rather than ignorance.

Stone of the Passing of the Torch

The stone pointing to the Bailey Building represents the primary academic responsibility of the University.

Stone of the Teacher

The recumbent stone represents the University and signifies debate and a focus on instruction.

The TCU Veterans Plaza was dedicated in 2005 to honor the sacrifices and achievements of alumni and students who served in World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq. The plaza encompasses existing memorial pillars that were originally constructed as part of a memorial arch in 1923 to honor World War I veterans and rededicated in 1949 to honor veterans of both World Wars. On the west side of the monument, a grove of trees symbolizes the unity of the soldiers, while a gap in the grove honors those soldiers who died in war. In the grove are plaques listing the names of the fallen.

In 1984, the Verdin firm of Cincinnati completed the installation of the Robert Carr Chapel Carillon. Unlike many other carillons that use castmetal bells, the Robert Carr Carillon is electronic. Each hour on the hour, the 186 “bells” of the carillon ring out the first few measures of the TCU Alma Mater for students, faculty, staff and Fort Worth residents to hear.

24

University Seal The University seal is one of the official images of TCU and is only found on official University documents, icons and monuments. The seal features the founding date of the University—1873—and the official University motto, “Disciplina est Facultas,” which means, “Learning is Power.” Various locations across campus showcase the seal, including the marble base underneath the Sadler Hall flagpoles, the façade of the Brown-Lupton University Union and a large welcome sign at the start of North Drive.

In January 2002, TCU unveiled a class ring as a symbol of the University. The ring, designed by 15 students, faculty, staff and alumni, features the University seal and a horned frog.
