In Pennsylvania’s capital, a mission is reborn

first_img Submit an Event Listing Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA May 8, 2013 at 6:35 am Dylan, the grants that are budgeted and will be made available through A073 have not yet been expended. The enterprise zones in this article seem to be a function of what the Diocese of Central PA is doing and envisioning within itself. Whether they apply for and / or are eligible for A073 Mission Enterprise Zone funding remains to be seen. A subcommittee of Executive Council’s JSP for Local Mission & Ministry is working with Tom Brackett now and at our June meeting of EC to draft the criteria and process for these grants. I hope this helps clear up some questions or confusion. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS The Rev. Harry L.

The City location is not a Mission Church yet. While no one can deny that the “improvements” are needed, the Vestry of this parish has not been informed, consulted, or given the opportunity to approve any of the recent or planned activities of the Diocese.

Once they complete that process they will be able to create a parish profile for their search for a clergy leader.“The Extreme Make Over” will cost about $25,000 to replace old rugs, tiles and the cost of materials for the scraping sanding and repainting the first two floor of the church building . Most of the labor is being donated by the Harrisburg Convocation with help from other convocations. We are hoping for and expecting 80 or more on June 1st for the makeover. The mission also needs office equipment desks (2), chairs (6), computers (2), software and a printer, as all that equipment currently resides with the other half of the parish that the mission is being born from.Part of the money raised comes from the donations made by the Baptist and Mennonite Churches. The rest is being raised by the new mission itself. Finally, they are part of diocesan wide program to establish four “new ventures” so we as a diocese can learn what we need to do to help our church to thrive again. St. Andrew’s is the city mission of the diocese where we can learn how to go back into the city and re-establish the Episcopal Church’s presence. We have a “new venture” in Potter County, a rural area in the northern tier, that is now almost a year old and thriving. Another “new venture” is in State College, PA and is an effort to learn how to better bring university students and professors into the church. The fourth venture is located along on the Maryland border and it is a mission already, but it is in need to strong support to move to a parish statues (independence) within the next 3-5 years. We are committed to helping them achieve parish status while we learn from that experience – successes as well as our frustrations.As a diocese we want to learn how to thrive and are committed to finding ways to spread the Gospel and bring others to Christ. We are committed to becoming a “learning diocese” that is not afraid of mistakes or failures as they are opportunities to learn from.Hope this brief outline helps you and others understand what we are trying to do as a diocese.Blessings,Ted Babcock Rector Belleville, IL An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET [Diocese of Central Pennsylvania] Sometime this summer, St. Andrew’s in the City will become the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania’s newest mission.Founded as a mission more than a hundred years ago St. Andrew’s in the City rapidly grew into a parish in the thriving area of Allison Hill in Harrisburg. With movement out of the city during the post-World War II period, St. Andrew’s in the City established a mission church in the Linglestown area of Harrisburg – St. Andrew’s in the Valley.With the rapid movement of residents out of the city and the economic decline of Harrisburg due to the loss of industry, the demographic of the city changed. Over time, the economic vitality of the city shifted to the more suburban valley. The parish continued to operate as one with one vestry and one rector, but the city church faced increasing challenges as the neighborhood of Allison Hill changed and the parish got older.St. Andrew’s in the City still provided the endowments to pay off the Valley church’s mortgage and gave significant operating funds to the valley church. But a move grew to collapse the city church into being just the valley church.Bishop Nathan Baxter, a son of the city of Harrisburg, sent his staff in to see what the city church wanted to do. The staff met with a congregation that had lost hope and felt bad about itself. Members had been told they were a burden on the valley and needed to close, and they were afraid of losing their church.Through a process of Appreciative Inquiry, the congregants explored their history, mission and new ways of being church. They invited a Baptist church to use their facilities, which generated income as well as making a statement to the community. Later a Mennonite church began using the facility, too.“Now we are heeding God’s call and re-establishing our church with a new mission to the community,” said Troy Thompson, a lifetime member of St. Andrew’s. “St. Andrew’s has been touched by the Spirit, and our energy and fire have to be replenished to spread God’s word.”St. Andrew’s in the City is now one of four “enterprise zones” being redeveloped by the diocese. The idea is to assist churches identified as ones where growth might be obtained by thoughtful investment. In the process, the diocese will become a “learning diocese” as it studies each zone and learns from its efforts.“We expect mistakes. We expect successes,” said the Rev. Ted Babcock, canon to the ordinary. “Each new enterprise zone provides the diocese valuable information on how to go about strengthening our presence in Central Pennsylvania and the city is one of four now redeveloping their ministry.”At St. Andrew’s, he said, “The Spirit has manifested itself in a call to plan and execute a radical makeover of the parish building. The old is coming out, and the new is coming in.”The process began April 13 with “D-Day,” or Dumpster Day, when members asked two parishes and the other mission church of the diocese to come and help them clean out the city facilities in preparation of an “extreme makeover” to begin on June 1.More than 30 people came to help. In less than three hours, they cleaned the entire church and former rectory of years of debris and other “stored” items that had built up. The cleanup filled a large dumpster, and some of the more valuable items were contributed to the Valley for its own tag sale.On June 1, more than 80 people from throughout the diocese are expected to help with the makeover. The first two floors of the church building will be painted. Old wiring will be replaced and the plumbing repaired. Afterward, new carpeting and a new tile floor will be laid. So far, St. Andrew’s has raised more than $50,000 to begin the makeover.The church’s neighbors are taking notice of the revitalization. One Dumpster Day, onlooker Sonja, a Hispanic pastor who lives next door to St. Andrews in the City, said, “This restoration is bringing the church back to life in the community.“I wonder if there is room for our Hispanic neighbors to do Bible study?”— Linda Arguedas is canon for events, programs and communications in the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania. Press Release Service Rector Pittsburgh, PA Dorothy Kapnic says: By Linda ArguedasPosted Apr 26, 2013 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York May 20, 2013 at 10:20 pm I would agree Cathy, and I can only wonder when the Vestry became 10 members allowed from the Valley Congregation and only 2 from the Allyson Hill Congregation? Historically, there is only one corporation, and that is a legal canonical process if it is to change. It might be different today if we had left set representation at six for each altar’s congregation. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Albany, NY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Sarah Dylan Breuer says: In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR May 8, 2013 at 4:31 am Thank you for responding, Ted.I did not gather from your response, though the diocese’s missionary desires are strong, how St Andrews in the City will meet the criteria for “Mission Enterprise Zones” in GC2012 A073, particularly:“Resolved, That Diocesan Standing Committees and Bishops partner to create “Mission Enterprise Zones,” defined as a geographic area, as a group of congregations or as an entire diocese committed to mission and evangelism that engages under-represented groups, including youth and young adults, people of color, poor and working-class people, people with a high-school diploma or less, and/or people with little or no church background or involvement.”The ENS article represents St. Andrew’s in the *City* (not just the diocese as a whole or its rural activities) as being a “Mission Enterprise Zone” — and not just one of them, but a public exemplar of how Mission Enterprise Zones are being implemented.As a member of Executive Council, I am particularly interested in how Please explain at your earliest convenience how St. Andrew’s in the City is implementing GC 2012 A073. I’d love to hear as well how the other three “Mission Enterprise Zones” met the criteria for funding under A073.I am particularly concerned about the ambiguity of the process as you’ve described it given that General Convention specified in particular that “each Mission Enterprise Zone feature a strategic plan to start or redevelop a congregation that is intentionally multi-cultural, incorporating the presence and leadership of under-represented generations, socio-economic groups, races, ethnicities and/or languages,” among other criteria.It sounds like the “Mission Enterprise Zone” in question has no strategic plan at all at present, but is undergoing a process of Appreciative Inquiry to hire a cleric who might develop one.Given the lack of any specific plan (and if there is one that isn’t publicly disclosed, please do feel free to contact me personally any time, day or night) for an Episcopalian congregation to do anything in particular at St. Andrew’s in the City other than hire a cleric, how has the congregation decided that whatever it’s doing next requires 2 (and only 2) desks and 6 (and only six) chairs are needed?It seems to me that whether any desks and what kind and number of chairs are needed for the office would be the function of what was going to happen in the facility. And so far the plan is to remake the facilities — deciding whether and where carpeting is needed, and so on — based on no plan at all.This is a matter of serious concern to me as a member of Executive Council. I would be asking these questions privately had ENS not raised this mission as a model (and perhaps the first one — I haven’t noticed any prior ENS articles on this subject, though I might have missed some) of what GC 2012 A073 “Mission Enterprise Zones” are funding.I look forward very much to hearing what the plan is to ensure that A073 funding is going toward the purposes for which the resolution allocated them.I admit also some disappointment that, given our GC-adopted mission emphasis on horizontal networking, that the diocesan plan for MEZs seems to start with furniture and buildings, continue with clergy, and stop after one cleric is hired. I look forward eagerly to ENS reporting about the communities MEZs will reach — who’s there, what THEY care about (I’m guessing that unchurched people don’t have a solid idea about how many desks they want in the office of the church that doesn’t exist yet), and how A073 funds are helping Episcopalians engage their real, local communities where and with respect to what they care about.GC 2012 Resolution A073 was not, I think, passed because GC felt that dioceses needed more desks and chairs. I think it was passed because bishops and deputies alike wanted to fund new ideas and initiatives, and in particular to engage communities that are (to our shame) new to TEC.I will be asking my colleagues on the appropriate committee as well as Council as a whole to keep an eye on what’s happening. I expect it to be inspiring and innovative, as I’m sure your diocese’s plans for A073 funding will be.Thank you for speaking up, and I look forward to ongoing conversation.Blessings,Dylan Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK May 16, 2013 at 2:44 pm I am the Sunday priest who has worked with this congregation off and on since 2005, and during 2007 & 2008 was the Interim Pastor, and Since 2011 have been the associate priest of Saint Andrew’s Church, Harrisburg. I assure the parties who seem to be willing to discuss this subject on line, to accept an invitation to attend a service and meet the people. We gather every Sunday at 8 am and promise you will be welcomed and are welcome. This congregation at the moment has had eighteen months of leadership by the Diocesan Staff, and as of this time, the people, who are diverse in age and race, are working, all of them, and have for months to affect this process. Unlike few things I have witnessed as an Episcopal Priest of forty-four years, they are one hundred percent involved and active in this process and work. If you cannot make a Sunday service and at least see us face to face, how about attending our Bible Study on Wednesday evenings at 7 – 8 pm. We are currently studying Ephesians. I only hope the National Church is capable of doing its work and doing it as well.

I refer to them as the 100 % group. There will be in place a strategic plan and the intent to continue to develop that plan in the coming years. As I have said before, if you do not think we intend to do this, just come by the building at 1854 Market Street, worship with us and learn how we reach out and welcome the people around us. There is some updating of the physical properties, but more importantly they are putting in place the spiritual disciplines to grow and thrive at the corner of 19th and Market Street in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It is gratifying that I write this on the eve of Pentecost, and I want to add, that their great energy for this work is the evidence of the reality of how the Spirit is moving in our midst. This is a wonderful people, and there is nothing they cannot do.Inviting all interested persons for an on site visit.Come Holy Spirit Come!The Rev. Harry L. Knisely+ Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC May 10, 2013 at 9:21 am Thanks, Anne. That helps a lot. I see not that the article just says it’s an “enterprise zone,” not that it’s a “Mission Enterprise Zone.” This is one reason I like such discussions — folks like you and Ted are generous enough to answer questions and correct mistaken impressions! Blessings to you both, and to the congregation. Rector Washington, DC The Rev. Harry L. Knisely says: Rector Collierville, TN Submit a Job Listing July 31, 2013 at 11:10 am This will be literally my last word and comment about this news item, concerning a new mission in Harrisburg, and the date of the news release was April 26, 2013. First, since I served Saint Andrew Church as its Interim Priest in 2008, it has always been a presumed division of the vestry of 2 from the City, and 10 from Linglestown. I have not attempted to understand how that came to be, but clearly, I believe I could suggest that it is neither canonical nor sound. Second, I have carefully studied and factored the attendance of the City congregation and it is clearly not 12 or about 12. Which is used by Dorothy Kapnic to justify and 1/7 & and 2/14 split.In fact the last three years the attendance has been averaged at 20.0 in 2012, 21.1 in 2011, and 18.3 in 2010. If the attendance for the Linglestown congregation is indeed on average 85, if one were to attempt a split membership for vestry representation it should be 3/12. But I do not believe the split of the corporation board (the Vestry) is either proper or valid. Third, as many people know from the current discussions, this is at times used for some to be a way to split the financial figures for any separation of the two altars or the congregation. If one considers that there literally was no congregation in Linglestown before 1980 and no building before 1986, the part of the congregation that gathers around that altar would not exist with a generous generation of church planters a generation ago. Finally, it has been interesting and at times frustrating to listen to the conversation about so much that is at stake in this work. For me the bottom line is this. Literally the physical, spiritual and emotional energy in the new mission work at the city site is of 100% of the congregation. It has been remarkable to witness this focus and hard work. I congratulate them and wish them well. God speed dear friends. An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls Youth Minister Lorton, VA April 29, 2013 at 8:19 pm I just want to have a clear idea of this.The reborn mission of St. Andrews in the City is currently and commendably lending space to Baptist and Mennonite congregations, and has led one pastor of an existing Hispanic congregation who lives next door to wonder whether she might also be allowed to use the premises for bible study.All this is very good.In terms of future action proposed for St. Andrews in the City, I understand from this article that an “extreme makeover” costing about $50,000 is planned to make the physical plant more broadly useful.Sounds like good stewardship of the property.Is there other missionary and/or other congregational activity proposed as part of the rebirth of St. Andrews in the City as a “Mission Enterprise Zone”?Many thanks, and blessings! Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC June 6, 2013 at 11:09 am The Vestry has never “become” any set proportion. Any member in good standing is eligible to run for vestry. Since the City location has an average Sunday attendance of about 12 and the Valley congregation has an average Sunday attendance of around 85, it not logical to suggest 1/2 and 1/2, but rather 1/7 city and 6/7 valley. During my term on Vestry (mid 2007 – mid 2010), elections were usually with a slate of exactly the number of vestry members needed so as to ensure that the city church WAS represented on the Vestry. (Finding members who are both qualified and willing to serve is always a challenge.) By the way, Fr. Knisely was the interim for a total of 14 months, Dec 2007 thru Jan 2009.

We are studying Ephesians, which is an excellent presentation of the ministry of a congregation. Actually, I was the Interim from September 2007 until December 2008.

Steigereiland / diederendirrix

first_img Projects Houses Photographs:  Arthur BagenSteigereiland 2007 . Residential In contrast to the surrounding multi-coloured diversity, diederendirrix designed the front facade of the Stiegerland house as a black hole. The closed frontage is made of black painted concrete and a noticeable deviation to this is the opaque glass and wooden front doors on the ground floor. Colour is barely used in the interior, the only exception being the bright red walls of the patio on the roof. Because only two of the five storeys can be seen from the front elevation, the spatial layout of the house is concealed.

Behind the large window on the first floor is a four metre high living room and above this, behind the strip window in the front facade, is the first bedroom storey. The second bedroom storey and the roof terrace are again hidden from view. Inside the house the split-level interior generates taller rooms on the ground and first floor and accentuates the length of a relatively compact living room. Steigerland house was nominated for the Gouden AAP (Amsterdams Architecture Prize) 2008.

This row house is such a house. In contrast with the gay diversity around it, the facade of the house has been conceived as a black hole. The mostly closed facade is constructed out of concrete, which has been painted black. The opal glass and the wooden front doors are the only exceptions.

Behind the large window on the first floor is the four-metre-high living room. The kitchen and dining room are on the ground floor at the garden side and not visible from the street. Above the living room, behind a ribbon window in the facade, is a floor for sleeping; above that is a second floor for sleeping and also a roof terrace, both oriented towards the south and again hidden from view.

Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals week

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printA second semester without built-in study days is making the last week of classes and exams more difficult for some students. As part of a condensed semester schedule amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the normal ‘dead days’ of no classes before final exams begin have been eliminated this year.While the days also did not occur in the fall, some students are struggling to find time to complete their remaining assignments, study for their finals and, for those living on-campus, coordinate their move-out arrangements. “I had an essay due Friday night, a final Monday morning followed by three more later in the week, and I have to move out of my dorm before Saturday morning,” said Brooke Mcnulty, a junior communication major. “I have been extremely overwhelmed and think the lack of study days have played a crucial role in my stress.” Make-up classes and work from the February snowstorm are also adding to the pressure of a condensed semester. Some students feel that the university’s decision to take the few free days away is unfair and will harshly impact their final grades.“I feel like I constantly need to remind myself to take time to relax and not get too caught up in the workload,” said Hannah Geschke, a junior strategic communication major. “Whenever I feel like the stress is becoming too much I try to either go to the gym or go for a run.”Helping manage stress A number of services are being offered by TCU to help students through a stressfull academic time.

(Photo courtesy of Isabella Potts)The counseling and mental health center has made efforts to increase resources and mental health awareness through the Virtual Letter of Care Campaign and support groups, leading some students to realize the importance of taking care of themselves physically and mentally.“Having the majority of my classes online and not having as many reasons to leave my dorm due to the amount of studying I have has caused my stress levels to skyrocket,” said Isabella Potts, a sophomore psychology major. “Luckily, TCU has been planning events to help students briefly take their mind off all the chaos.”Potts said that TCU is making an effort to make up for the lack of study days by planning events and activities, such as the Worth Hills Fun Fair, the Brett Young concert and the TCU state fair that was put on by Frog Aides. Potts added that all these events have been a way for her to relieve stress and safely meet new people around campus.

(Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summerBy Lindsey BakonyiFrog camp was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, but this summer it’s back. Read more about what to expect from Frog Camp this year. TCU’s Frog Camp continues to serve its purpose for incoming students as it approaches 30 years of camps, and will return to its normal format after being impacted by the pandemic last summer.The camp was created by Barbara Herman in 1993 in hopes to bring the incoming TCU community closer together before actually getting to campus. The camp provides lifelong memories, a stable support system coming into campus and an understanding of all the available resources around the TCU community.Why Frog Camp got startedAlthough Frog Camp is not mandatory, it is a major component of TCU’s First-Year Experience program which is designed to create a welcoming environment for incoming students.TraditionsOne way Frog Camp makes sure to make the environment as comfortable and welcoming as possible is the inclusive traditions incorporated into the camp.Frog Camp traditions include games, dancing, team bonding and learning the true meanings behind some of TCU’s traditions such as the Riff Ram Bah Zoo chant. “Each camp has its own unique traditions that serve to give the camp its own personality and purpose,” Hudson Auerbach, a TCU junior political science major on the Frog Camp Director Board, said. One unwritten tradition most students leave Frog Camp having experienced are the relationships they form. “Many come in pretty nervous as they do not know anyone at camp or coming to TCU. Within a few days, they leave not just knowing people also going to TCU but with friends who are going to TCU,” Brian McDermott, assistant director of first-year experience, said.StatisticsIn order to make Frog Camp a unique and special experience for everyone involved, facilitators and directors have made sure to provide enough resources for everyone to form personal connections.Although there are many different Frog Camps offered, one of the main focuses is to form deep friendships that will last throughout a student’s time at TCU and beyond.Typically, there will be about 250-275 students at each camp. Within this big group of students are many different small groups that consist of only 10-15 students.These small groups will have two co-facilitators, one male and one female. The small groups will also have one faculty or staff member join the group to serve as a resource for incoming students once they arrive on campus.Last year, Frog Camp was only held on the TCU campus due to the pandemic, but things are beginning to look up for this coming summer.Frog Camp is returning to the more traditional values that come along with the camp while still following the safety guidelines that come with COVID-19.This summer, six camps will be offered in Fort Worth (3 Casa Nueva camps, 2 Cultura camps, and 1 All-Stars camp) and one camp will take place in Bruceville, TX (Challenge).There will also be two Alpine camps this summer which take place in Colorado. These camps will offer multiple activities and bonding opportunities for incoming students to enjoy with their future peers including sightseeing, games, dinners and many more excursions that go along with the location of the camp. Incoming students should continue to check their emails for more Frog Camp information. They can also go to sds.tcu.edu for more details. Advice going into Frog Camp from current students“Have fun and remember, the more you put into Frog Camp, the more you get out of it,” Auerbach said.“Be willing to be vulnerable and open-minded,” Jordyn Delong, senior child development major, said. “Don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone,” Laurel Stanley, a TCU junior art history major, said.Photo: Frog Camp 2020 was held from Aug. 12-16 on campus and online. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Frogs First organizers look forward to bringing back revamped program in the fallBy Lonyae CoulterFrogs First was another classic TCU experience that was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. But this fall, with health guidelines in place, first-year students will get to partake in this week-long adventure. Here’s what to expect.Student activities are adapting to the health restrictions and guidelines to have first-year activities return closer to normalcy this fall, including Frogs First.Frogs First, a week-long welcome experience for incoming students in the fall, consists of in-depth conversations between students, faculty and staff during the Common Reading Program as well as other social activities within the campus community.“Its purpose is to get the students acclimated to the campus community that they have now joined,” said Tara McWhorter, director of first-year experience.It differs from freshman orientation and Frog Camp because students are moving onto campus during this event.New health guidelines are making it a different experience than usual.“We are still looking at some key traditional events, such as the Chancellor’s Assembly where we welcome incoming students, but also thinking about what are some new things we can bring into play,” said McWhorter.Plans for students to socially distance and wear their masks are still in place as of publication.Usually, students are put in a large group during Frogs First, but the directors of Frogs First are looking into making the groups smaller.“The University Policy has been that if you are indoors, it’s 20 people per classroom or group when we’ve held Frog Camp or Orientation, but we know that can be even smaller for outside,” said McWhorter.They will continue working with emergency management to navigate the procedure of those small groups.Common reading program to continue as centerpiece of programOne aspect of Frogs First that will not change is the common reading program.“The common reading program is an opportunity to select a book that ranges from race and inclusion, social justice, resistance, self-care or what is relevant in this current year for us to bring to the forth front with our students,” said McWhorter.TCU welcomed students home amid the pandemic.

King and Wright residence halls in the commons. Photo by Heesoo Yang King and Wright residence halls in the commons. Photo by Heesoo Yang Do’s:Get to know your Resident Assistant (RA)Resident Assistants are there to help.“As an RA, it’s important to be welcoming and intentional,” said Helen Rieke, an RA in Wright Hall.“You want to make sure residents feel comfortable talking to you about any sort of problem they have.”RA’s typically host activities so they can interact with students, but doing so has been difficult since the pandemic began.“While in a pandemic, fewer residents have attended hall programs in general, so I’ve tried to meet up with mine one-on-one to see how they’re doing and get to know them,” said Rieke. “I would also say as an RA you don’t want to only be involved in RA activities.”Rieke suggests that it’s nice to have other leadership positions or just hang out with friends off-campus to take a break from the dorm.Dekia Greene, a resident assistant in Wright Hall on duty at the desk.

Photo by Heesoo YangMake your room feel like homeTo make a dorm feel more homey, many students recommend bringing some decorations.“A good tapestry or polaroids of your friends always helps when it comes to decorating your room,” said Rieke.It also helps make the transition better from home to dorm living.Bring supplies to help with your classesStudents also recommend bringing pencils, notecards, paper, pens, highlighters and notebooks.Rieke said to make sure you have extras of those supplies because it makes things less stressful when you’re ready to go during a late-night study session.Students are also advised to have some sort of technology device such as a computer or tablet.For example, students who are in the Neeley School of Business, are required to come equipped with a PC laptop instead of a MacBook laptop.Communicate with your roommate(s)Communicating will help with addressing problems that arise between roommates, especially early on.“So many times when a roommate conflict occurs, neither roommate previously addressed their concern with the other one,” said Rieke.Rieke said RA’s are also there to help in navigating the conflict.It is also important to discuss things like cleaning and what each roommates schedule looks like.Follow the rules for housingRieke also recommends following the rules that housing and residence life spells out.“The rules are there to ensure residents are safe and that the dorms are in good shape over the years,” said Rieke.Following the quiet hours rule will make your dorm neighbors appreciative.“While some policies might seem trivial, they are there for a reason (often from past problems with that action),” said Rieke.Don’tsDon’t bring too many clothesWhen coming to college don’t bring every single item in the closet.“My freshman year, I felt like I needed to bring everything from my closet, and I didn’t wear most of it because it took up too much space,” said Rieke.There will be times you can always swap out clothes when going home for a break as well.“Some clothes you do want to bring to campus are definitely shorts, athleisure, hoodies, a coat, rain jacket, rain boots and an umbrella because you never know what the weather is going to be because it will change quickly,” said Ashley Parks, a senior writing and theatre double major.Other items not to bringItems that students do not need to bring are a refrigerator and microwave as both are provided in the dorm.Parks also wouldn’t recommend bringing a printer.“You shouldn’t bring a printer because there are printing stations around on campus,” said Parks.Cooking appliances and any home appliances such as toasters, candles, heaters or special types of lamps like lava or halogen lamps are prohibited.Don’t study in your room all the timeMany students have found benefits in changing locations or finding a different scenery other than their dorm while studying.“Especially during COVID-19, when most people have online classes, it can be challenging to be in your room for so long,” said Rieke.There are plenty of study locations on campus, whether that is going to the library, going to landing zones or even the campus commons.Navigating the options to eat at TCUBy Mia YartoTCU has many dining options for students.

Photo by Heesoo YangThe difference between campus cash and frog bucksA big source of confusion for many TCU students is understanding the difference between frog bucks and campus cash, and where you can use them. Campus cash and frog bucks are designed to ensure that every student has access to meals that they enjoy. TCU takes special dietary needs into consideration and has options for every student. Campus cash gives students the option to eat on-campus at the places listed above. Frog bucks are used at off-campus restaurants that have a partnership with TCU.While TCU has dozens of options to choose from, your meal plan does not stop there. Beyond the campus, there are multiple restaurants to choose from that are covered by Frog Bucks, such as:Ampersand CoffeeBuffalo Bros Pizza Wings SubsChuy’s Common Grounds FTWDutch’s HamburgersDwell Coffee and BiscuitsEast Hampton Sandwich Company Einstein Bros Bagels Fat Shack Fruitealicious Hopdoddy Burger BarJimmy John’s Maestro TacosMcAlister’s DeliMcDonald’sNekter Juice BarPanera BreadPerotti’s PizzaPotbelly Sandwich WorksRaising Cane’s #94Silver FoxSmoothie KingSnappy Salads Camp Bowie Susie CakesTCU Campus Store – StarbucksThe Cookshack Toasted Coffee + KitchenWoodshed Smokehouse Maddison Lilley, a sophomore nursing major, says that she enjoys using frog bucks more than campus cash. “My favorite place to eat off-campus is East Hampton,” said Lilley. “It is reasonably priced, fresh and a good change from on-campus food.”For more on-campus dining information visit: dining.tcu.eduRead Next:TopBuilt with Shorthand ReddIt TCU student helps open up a new coffee shop in Fort Worth Lindsey Bakonyihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsey-bakonyi/ Linkedin Lonyae Coulter Lindsey Bakonyihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsey-bakonyi/ Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ Mia Yartohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mia-yarto/ + posts TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summer Facebook Lindsey Bakonyihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsey-bakonyi/ Linkedin Newest student organization hopes to provide a space for minority students interested in law TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ Mia Yartohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mia-yarto/ Welcome TCU Class of 2025 + posts Facebook TCU Theatre looks forward to second-weekend performances of Children of Eden Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ Lindsey Bakonyi Frog Aides helps supports local businesses with on-campus ‘state fair’ event Mia Yarto World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution + posts Frogs First organizers look forward to bringing back revamped program in the fall TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Life in Fort Worth Welcome TCU Class of 2025 A fox’s tail: the story of TCU’s campus foxes Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals weeklast_img read more
