Frogs First – Get Involved

What is Frogs First?

Frogs First is a welcome program for new students as they prepare to begin their college experience at TCU. During Frogs First, students are challenged, connected to the campus and their peers, and prepared for what it means to be a successful and fulfilled member of the Horned Frog family. Frogs First is all about connecting new students to the Horned Frog Community.

We believe that no matter where we have come from, no matter what organizations we join, that we are all Frogs First!
