TCU Football 2018
Now that the weather is finally cooling off, we can look forward to all the home games of the TCU horned frogs without sweating too much! And even though their 4-5 record isn’t as good as it was in years past, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t keep going to games to support the players.
With one home game left in the books against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, it’s time to get out to the stadium, tailgate, and see how the university is an integral part of community engagement! Don’t hesitate to head to Carter field one Saturday this fall to be a part of the football dynasty and soak in the college football energy. The stadium received over $164 million in renovations and is one of the most state-of-the-art stadiums in the country. In addition to the amenities in the stadium, Frog Alley (located outside) hosts the family-friendly pre-game festivities and a place to cheer on the team as they enter the stadium!
Below are some of our favorite aspects of TCU football.
Some of the most fun (and delicious!) aspects of football take place right outside the football stadium. From those who prefer a turn-key experience like catering to the low-key folks that throw the grill and cooler in the back of the truck, there is something that will fit everyone’s needs at TCU games. The staff at Dr. Ku’s office love to get out to football games and enjoy a weekend’s tailgating. Let us know if you’re hosting a tailgate, and we will try to stop by to say hello. It’s hard to turn down a hotdog and great community!
Prior to kick off, Frog Alley is a family-friendly place to be where you a sport your purple early before heading into the stadium. Dance to the upbeat music, grab some food and drink, pick up new spirit wear and meet members of the band and spirit squares before they head into the stadium.
In addition to these festivities, you can let your kids run out some energy on the inflatables or get their face painted to sport their purple pride. This is truly a family-friendly experience. This area opens three hours prior to kickoff. And then, two and half hours before kickoff, cheer on the team as they walk into the stadium. Finally, one hour before kickoff, jam with the marching band as they offer a quick pep rally prior the game!
TCU’s community engagement
If you are looking for more ways to get engaged in the community, or maybe are already a volunteer looking for more help, then look no farther than TCU’s Office of Community Engagement! The mission of the Office for Community Engagement is to position TCU as an engaged and reflective campus by integrating service and learning through reciprocal community-based partnerships.
The holiday season is a great time to remember all the blessing that many of us have and propel us to give back to the community. The Office of Community Engagement has immediate volunteer opportunities for a variety of interests. Give their office a call today if you are interested in getting involved.
At Dr. Ku’s office we love to see patients wear their TCU spirit gear and support the home team. Make an appointment today and don’t forget to wear your purple!
