Welcome to Connections!

Connections is a 7 week, small-group centered leadership development program designed to help new students transition successfully into the TCU
community. Housed within TCU’s Leadership Center, students will focus on their Strengths, according to Gallup’s StrengthsQuest, while learning to invest in and help shape a thriving campus community. Participants will explore the ways in which their personal lives and leadership styles are connected to the larger community.

Though not required, Connections is highly recommended and attracts several hundred incoming students per year. Additionally, Connections represents, for many, the first step toward earning a leadership medallion upon graduation from TCU. This medallion can be earned by becoming part of the Leadership Scholars Program.

Register for Connections HERE or in person at Orientation.
