Two words: Horned Frogs.
There are some colleges where the mascot is just the poor
sap in a smelly suit. But for others, the mascot is a central part of the
school’s identity. Take the TCU (Texas Christian University) "Horned
Frog," for example.
From the stadium chants of "Go Horned Frogs!" to the "Frog
Family Homecoming" for alumni in October, TCU’s Horned Frog is a part of
their campus culture. Nowhere is this more apparent than at home football
games, a staple of TCU’s student spirit. In fact, all TCU students recently
received a letter from second-year Chancellor Victor J. Boschini welcoming them
back to school and inviting them to the Horned Frogs’ nationally televised
opening home football game against Northwestern. It probably wasn’t hard to
garner support. The Frogs were coming off an 11-win season and a top 25
post-season ranking in 2003.
He signed off his letter with the following: "So be prepared to study like
your future depends on it (it does!), and play safely – for the same reason.
Indeed, that’s what Horned Frogs do!"
