Fab Frogs: TCU Alumni – Frogs for Life  

09/14/2016
sharoncrockett-tcu-alum

Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty agent Sharon Crockett and her family have made TCU a long-standing tradition. Front row: Margaret Crockett, Class of 2020; Dixon Presnall, MD, Class of 1961; Sharon P. Crockett, Class of 1990. Back row: Carter Crockett, Class of 2022; Carol West Presnall, Class of 1968; Craig Crockett, Class of 1990.

TCU has more legacies apply every year than there are spots in the freshman class. “We could fill the entire freshman class with legacies alone,” says Whitney Hanson, assistant director of marketing and new media for TCU’s Alumni Relations office. “Obviously, that’s not how admissions are based,” she notes, “but it goes to show how TCU gets into the blood of people who attend it.”

TCU may work its way into the blood of its alumni, and it certainly works its way into their hearts. Alumni Relations staff members describe TCU graduates as a “small, but mighty, family,” and agree that, while 89,000 living alumni may seem like a small number when compared to other schools in the state, it doesn’t stop them from accomplishing amazing things.

One thing is clear: if you’re part of that 89,000, there are 88,999 Horned Frogs who have your back.

“It’s really amazing to see how much Horned Frogs will go out of their way to help current TCU students, graduates and other alumni. They work hard to stay networked, stay connected and support each other,” says Hanson. Day-to-day, the school even looks to hire “frog-owned” businesses wherever possible, from photographers to caterers and beyond.

Despite offering programming around all life stages and a wide variety of special interests – everything from networking and social events to international trips and community service programs – Hanson says she often hears about TCU alumni seeking ways to give back and stay connected to the school on their own.

“We’ll hear about something through the grapevine that we didn’t even know was happening, like an alum mentoring students, offering internships or teaching an informal class. It’s really unique and speaks a lot to the TCU alumni community,” she says.

Hanson, who began her role at TCU just a few months ago, compares it to her own collegiate experience as a University of Texas Longhorn. “Coming from a school as large as UT to a school like TCU, I knew it would be different. But the biggest difference I’ve found isn’t the size of the school – it’s the spirit. It’s definitely more community-focused,” she says. “People have a tighter bond – both with each other and with the school.” 

There are many reasons to celebrate TCU and the marvelous imprint it continues to have on North Texas. We’ve highlighted some of the most dedicated Texans in this year’s season preview. To read our full TCU tribute, click here
