When U.S. News and World
Report released its 2015 rankings, it
revealed TCU sitting at No. 76 among
national universities. That’s a six-spot
improvement from last year, and a 37
spot jump since 2008.
But when it comes to the
importance of these rankings with
high school seniors considering
colleges, the statistics are telling—
college-bound students don’t really
care. According to the UCLA study
The American Freshman: National
Norms 2013, college rankings are the
number 12 factor students consider
when selecting a college.
Instead, students are turning to
Twitter, Facebook and other social
media sites to research colleges.
Dean of Admissions Ray Brown
confirmed most prospective TCU
students don’t consult the U.S. News
and World Report rankings.
About 24 percent of collegebound high school seniors used
college ranking websites, according
to The 2014 Social Admissions Report
released by Uversity and Zinch. In
comparison, almost 60 percent of
college-bound high school seniors used
the student-survey generated Niche
(formerly known as CollegeProwler).
THE HALO EFFECT
Ivy Leagues boast impressive
rankings from U.S. News and World
Report, but TCU Provost Nowell
Donovan suggests that many of these
top-rated schools get a rank boost from
faculty prestige.
No. 1 ranked Princeton University
claims 37 Nobel laureates; No. 2 ranked
Harvard, 48; and No. 3 ranked Yale, 25.
“Ivy League universities who have
fabulous faculty brought in from
around the world, a lot of those
faculty don’t actually teach undergraduates. So they get a sort of Halo
effect,” Donovan said.
WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO STUDENTS
According to The American
Freshman, the most important factor
to students’ decision is an institution’s
“academic reputation.” However, the
same report claims affordability is
nearly equal in importance.
According to U.S. News and World
Report, 52 percent of TCU students
applied for need-based aid, and
22 percent had needs fully met. In
comparison, 64 percent of Princeton’s
undergrads applied for need-based
aid, and 100 percent of those had
needs fully met.

A ‘STRATEGIC PLAN’
Donovan says that any movement in
rankings, whether positive or negative,
can be an important benchmark to the
university. But when comparing TCU to
other national universities he said he’s
“just interested in what TCU’s doing.”
TCU’s Vision In Action is Chancellor
Victor Boschini’s plan for a holistic
analysis of the university. Boschini
instituted the project during his third
year as chancellor and asked Donovan
to spearhead the project.
The analysis became the planning
mechanism for evaluating campus
and academics.
The multimillion dollar plan for
the new Business Commons, the new
addition to the Annie Richardson
Bass Building, and the state-of-theart Rees-Jones Hall are all a result of
Vision in Action.
RANKING EFFECT ON ADMISSIONS
Despite attracting a record-number
of applicants (Admissions anticipates
17,000-19,000 next year), TCU plans to
keep the student body around 10,000.
Keeping the student body
population low while applications
continue to rise is how TCU became
the second most selective university in
Texas, just behind Rice.
Boschini said the Class of 2018
had the highest SAT and ACT scores
in TCU history.
Despite the drastic improvement
for TCU in the U.S. News and World
Report, Brown says it’s unlikely the
ranking improvement will affect
TCU admissions.

public speaking

skiff x 360
SteerFW, founded by Mayor
Betsy Price in 2011, has partnered
with the Bob Schieffer College of
Communication to provide a resource
for young professionals looking
to learn and improve their public
speaking.
TCU built a new communication
lab on the third floor of Moudy
South. It is a laboratory suite with
two rooms, a presentation room and
an observation room.
After the lab opened in fall 2013,
TCU spent the past year developing a
program that would offer consulting
services from faculty on public
speaking. That was when SteerFW
contacted TCU.
The lab is open for students, faculty
and individuals outside of the university.
Those who want to reserve the lab may
contact Carrie Moore, a communication
studies instructor at TCU.
“It is a great collaboration because
I think Mayor Price is very dedicated to
helping young professionals and that
is exactly what SteerFW is doing but
we [TCU] are also able to help young
professionals develop more public
speaking skills and be aware of things
coming out of their mouth,” Moore
said. “For TCU I think this shows how
committed we are to Fort Worth.”
According to the organization’s
website, SteerFW is Fort Worth’s
emerging leader’s program. The
program consists of young professionals, ages 20-40, who are taking action
to serve, educate, innovate and drive
positive change through informed
dialogue, volunteer projects and
community collaboration.
Cheraya Arthur, program director of
SteerFW, said she is looking forward to
working with TCU.
“I hope this a foundational block
for further partnerships where we can
bring SteerFW in the future,” Arthur said.
On Tuesday, five members will
be on campus to use the lab. Moore
will sit down with them and give
constructive feedback on their
public speaking skills.

TCU explores potential learning management system
By Caroline McKee
[email protected]
TCU began using Pearson Learning
Studio (eCollege) in 1999, and for
the past two years the Koehler
Center for Teaching Excellence has
researched switching to a new learning
management system.
“From 2010 forward, we have seen
a lot of changes in students’ learning
needs, a lot of engagement strategies,”
said Romana Hughes, assistant provost
of educational technology and faculty
development. “We’ve had a lot of drive
and needs from faculty to put in new
types of tools.”
Hughes said the search for a new
system was marketed informally
through Twitter and LinkedIn.
“We won’t find the best solution for
everything,” said Hughes, “but we can
probably find something that gives us
the majority of what we want and need
right now.”
Hughes said the search will
eventually be narrowed down to two
or three potential vendors. Once the
search reaches this stage, there will be
a town hall meeting for students to hear
from the learning management system
providers.
“There is not one group that we are
really hoping people get on board with
because all the products have really
great things about them, and all of the
products have things missing,” said
Hughes. “This is the first time we didn’t
have a driven idea that this is where it
will be.”
Hughes said after the meeting, 40
to 60 faculty and 40 to 60 students
will participate in a case study and
decide what system works best based
on creating content, accessibility and
ability to use system functions.
“We have collected a lot of data from
students over the years,” said Hughes.
“We do Teaching Analysis Polls (TAPs)
and so we get a lot of feedback from
students in those… last year we talked
to 900 students and almost everything
has been really positive.”
“We won’t find the best
solution for everything,
but we can probably find
something that gives us the
majority of what we want
and need right now.”
ROMANA HUGHES
ASSISTANT PROVOST OF EDUCATIONAL
TECHNOLOGY AND FACULTY DEVELOPMENT
Hughes said the learning
management system committee will
make a recommendation to administration to move forward with creating
a new contract to the chosen vendor.
This process will end in a series of pilot
programs in the classroom.
Hughes said they would like to have
the new system running by June 1, 2017.
“This type of technology, this type of
global tool is going to need to be used
outside of higher education anyways,”
said Hughes. “When you go into the
workforce you are going to need to be
using tools similar to Learning Studio.”
Hughes and the Koehler Center
for Teaching Excellence are always
collecting feedback. Students can ask
questions and learn more about the
process of selecting a new learning
management system by visiting their
website at www.cte.tcu.edu.
“We are super excited to be in a
situation that there could be some
really positive change coming,” said
Hughes. “Just moving forward to the
twenty-first century campus, like the
Academy of Tomorrow, this is just
another step for what TCU is doing to
move forward.”

SGA changes weekend library hours
By Levi Freeman
[email protected]
The Student Government
Association (SGA) passed a
resolution this week to change the
Mary Couts Burnett Library hours on
Fridays and Sundays.
Allegra Hernandez, SGA Addran
representative and political science
major, said the library would close
at 7 p.m. instead of 8 p.m. on Fridays
and would open at 11 a.m. on
Sundays rather than noon.
Since more students study on
Sunday mornings than on Friday
nights, Hernandez said the change
would allow the library to better
serve a majority of students.
Library Dean June Koelker said she
approves of the resolution to change
the library’s hours but now needs to
plan with supervisors and staff.
“I think it can and should be
done, but I just don’t want to force
staff members to come to work if
the new hours cut into church or
other lasting obligations on Sunday
mornings,” Koelker said.
Koelker said she would work
on scheduling with staff members
in the coming weeks. She said a
minimum of three staff members
and additional student workers
may open the library at 11 a.m. on
Sundays.
“The changes could be seen in a
couple weeks, but definitely before
finals week," Hernandez said.
The proposal came from Laura
Simard, SGA Neeley representative
and business major. Simard said
she got the inspiration to write
the resolution after seeing many
students waiting for the library to
open on Sunday mornings. She saw
only a few students studying on
Friday nights.
“With the library construction
going on, space is very limited,"
Simard said. "So any way we can
ease the troubles is worth it to me.”
LEVI FREEMAN / TCU 360
MARY COUTS BURNETT LIBRARY Library hours are expected to change soon.
Koelker said the change will be
monitored. If library supervisors see
more students benefitting from the
new hours, they would be likely to
keep the adjusted hours, she said.
“I like the idea of changing the
hours because the hours would
reflect the study habits of most of
the students,” said Jackson Durham,
a junior engineering major.
Simard said SGA questioned
students about the idea before the
resolution was written. She said
students then began talking about
the library hours with their friends.
“The students are talking about
going to the library," Koelker said. "I
always like to see that.”

TCU alumna brings hard-hitting documentary to campus
By Amanda Hernandez
[email protected]
“My mom’s body was maimed... I was
numbed. I couldn’t understand how they
could kill her... My entire family was
killed. I had 11 brothers. No one is alive
besides me.”
This is a testimony by Jean-Baptiste
Ntakirutimana, a genocide survivor
featured in the documentary “Beyond
Right and Wrong: Stories of Justice
and Forgiveness.”
The Center for International
Studies put on a film screening in
the auditorium of the Brown-Lupton
University Union Wednesday night. The
film’s message: forgiveness.
The film was brought to campus by
TCU alumna Erin Griffin, the film’s global
impact producer, in part with the Center
for International Services. Griffin said
this film was brought to TCU to raise
awareness about this global issue and to
inspire students to use their education to
make a difference.
“It is crucial that we listen and learn
from one another to stop the cycle of
pain, hatred and violence,” Griffin said.
“It is important to expose ourselves
to the world's most brutal stories that
result in forgiveness and new life so
that we can begin the conversation that
leads to reconciliation.”
The documentary follows individuals
in Rwanda, Northern Ireland and IsraelPalestine whose lives have been torn
apart by violence and their journey of
choosing to forgive rather than hate
those who killed their loved ones.
“You could say lots of things [to
describe this film], you could say
powerful, emotional, daunting, but
the word that most comes to mind
is necessary,” said Tracy Rundstrom
Williams, associate director of the Center
for International Services. “This is a film
that we need to watch.”
Griffin was joined by Dr. Ray Pfeiffer,
associate dean of the Neeley School of
Business, and Dr. Mark Dennis, associate
professor of East Asian Religions, in
a panel following the film screening.
Among the topics of discussion was the
effect of religion in global conflicts and
how individuals in the business world
can do their part to prevent them.
Williams echoed the main idea of
the film, which is that the way to peace
is not through the never-ending cycle
of hatred and retaliation, but through
reconciliation and forgiveness.
“It’s pretty hard for us to wrap our
minds around the idea of forgiving
someone that literally tears our family
apart and does the worst thing that you
can imagine,” Williams said. “The way to
move forward is to figure out methods
of forgiveness and reconciliation, and
working together in cooperation.”

Hangman’s House of Horrors has a new location and
new theme for the 2014 season, but visitors can expect
the same kind of thrill.
For over 20 years, Hangman’s House of Horrors has
been an old reliable for those looking for a fun and
spooky night out.
Three attractions are resurrected this season:
McDagenville, Outbreak, and 3D Wonderland.
Hangman’s Haunted House tells the story of Hezekiah
Jones as he looks for innocent souls for the taking.
Hangman’s Hillbillies
The McDagen family is more hillbilly freak show than
haunted attraction. The quirky actors will openly talk to
you- I had quite a few casual conversations- throughout
the mini attraction. The McDagens are rectifying
wrongs and “delivering justice,” but their performance is
humorous.
Zombie-shack
What happens when failed medical experiments turn
into a zombie nightmare? A zombie outbreak. Before
you enter the security shack, a short video introduction
gives you the backstory about the vile creatures. Artistic
and entertaining, the video was the perfect solution for
killing time in line.
The zombies lumber around the line and wreak
havoc throughout the crowd. The shack is dark and loud.
There’s smoke everywhere. The entire attraction is one
big maze full of zombies. Once you think you’re out, you
just enter another. It’s a short attraction, but it’s definitely
STORIES BY BETH GRIFFITH & KRISTEN SPAETH
COVER PHOTO: BETH GRIFFITH
worth it.
Down the rabbit hole
With the Alice in Wonderland theme, you’ll feel like
you took a trip down the rabbit hole. The entire house
features blacklights and 3D paints. Each person gets
a complimentary pair of 3D glasses and the wacky
experience begins.
The 3D Wonderland attraction is a recurring family
favorite and I can say that it was one of mine. It’s the
least scary of the four attractions, but it’s fun and visually
stunning.
I found myself grabbing for things that seemed
to appear, but weren’t really there at all. Alice was
absolutely adorable and the Queen of Hearts was wildly
amusing. They engaged with each person that came
through. I was swept off my feet for a short dance and
even partook in a tea party.
This was one of my favorite attractions at Hangman’s
by far and if you’re not a fan of horror and gore, then the
3D Wonderland is the place for you.
The government facility
Welcome to the institution: the first words that are
spoken once you walk through the door.
This year’s institution theme takes you through an “old
government facility” that was used for black operations,
experimental training and research. Tight corners, mazes,
cramped hallways, fog, smoke, and light shows, make it
more upscale than past houses.

Cutting Edge
KRISTEN SPAETH / TCU 360
AWAITING THEIR DOOM Line of people waiting to get into Cutting Edge.
Darkness, clowns, chainsaws—come to
horrifying life at world’s largest haunted
house.
Cutting Edge, two-time Guinness World
record winner, continues to thrive after 25
years of scaring.
The enormous haunted house offers
multiple “sets” with themes that vary
from a hospital, jungle, graveyard, maze,
closet, and many others. Each room has
different actors with different costumes to
emphasize the environment.
It’s almost dream-like going from one
nightmare to the next. Cutting Edge is
well known for it’s various scenes but did
a great job of using old-time classic scary
movies, like Pyscho as a source for scaring
the audience. Not with too much gore
or illusions, but with scenes that let the
imagination evolve.
With no real light in the dark maze, you
rely on your senses and even though they
are being terrorized with amplified music,
mist, and foam.
The most effective rooms were the
closet and the meat slinger rooms. The
closet was a room with two racks of
clothes that you walked between, while
clowns and other creatures either grabbed
you or popped out at you. The meat
slinger room was designed to pay homage
to the original buildings purpose of
packing meat using the actual equipment
that was used 100 years previously in the
plant. One moment your holding on the
your friend’s shoulder trying to guess what
happens next, when out of no where an
animals carcass comes flying at you from
no where.
Cutting Edge does a great job making
the maze seem never ending, but I wanted
there to be more sets and more actors
scaring. Going on a weekday when most
employees of Cutting Edge have other
occupations was a bit upsetting as I
expecting to be constantly screaming.
I found my self less scared as there
weren’t many actors popping out to scare
me. However, Cutting Edge utilizes the
darkness so effectively I was constantly
tense with excitement. The darkness and
the sets were definitely the best and do
wonders to the imagination.
Cutting Edge is open this week Monday
thru Sunday 8 p.m. to 10 a.m., with the
exception of Halloween, this Friday, from
7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Cutting Edge is located at
1701 E. Lancaster Ave. Tickets are $29.95
plus a $3.50 service fee and tax. Parking is
$10.

Who to watch: TCU vs. West Virginia
By Alex Gaffigan
ranked 20th in the country. Here
are three players to watch for both
teams heading into this weekend.
[email protected]
The No. 7 Horned Frogs are in
prime position to reach the first
ever College Football Playoff - if
they win out.
This Saturday, the Horned Frogs
travel to Morgantown, West Virginia
to take on the Mountaineers. On the
cusp of cracking the top four of the
inaugural College Football Playoff,
the newly 7th ranked TCU Horned
Frogs will have to be perfect for the
remainder of the season. A week
after humiliating Texas Tech at
home, the Frogs are out to prove
that the 82-point outburst isn’t
a fluke and their new ranking is
deserved. Meanwhile, West Virginia
has taken many by surprise in
their emergence as Big 12 title
contenders, shocking the previously
5th-ranked Baylor Bears two weeks
ago and now finding themselves
WEST VIRGINIA
Kevin White, Senior, Wide Receiver
Regarded as one of the best wide
receivers in the country, Heisman
Trophy candidate Kevin White has
been electric for the Mountaineers
in 2014. Leading the Big 12 in every
receiving category, White is West
Virginia’s biggest offensive threat.
Averaging 9 catches and 130 yards
per game, TCU’s best hope will be
to limit White to short receptions
and hope he doesn’t burn them
deep. TCU’s secondary will certainly
have their hands full with White
come Saturday.
Clint Trickett, Senior, Quarterback
In what has been a remarkable
breakout season for TCU
quarterback Trevone Boykin, West
Virginia’s Clint Trickett has quietly
undergone a similar transformation
for the Mountaineers. Leading the
Big 12 with 345 yards per game,
Trickett is a new quarterback this
season and has been proficient in
protecting the ball, with only five
interceptions on the season. While
Trickett certainly does not possess
the mobility of Boykin, with a target
like receiver Kevin White to aim
for, Trickett and the Mountaineer
offense is extremely dangerous.
TCU
Kevin White, Senior, Cornerback
Not very often do two players
with the same first and last name
get the opportunity to line up
across from one another, and “the
battle of the Kevin White’s” presents
the most intriguing matchup of
Saturday’s game. Not only do they
share the same name, but both
Kevin White’s are the best player
at their respective positions. There
are lingering questions as to how
good White and the TCU secondary
truly is, and those questions will be
answered Saturday in one of their
most difficult tests of the season.
Aaron Green, Junior, Running Back
In last weekend’s lopsided
victory, Aaron Green made the
most of his 6 carries, rushing for
105 yards and one touchdown
on a 65-yard dash for TCU’s first
touchdown of the game. TCU’s
four-pronged rushing attack made
up of Green, Trevorris Johnson,
B.J. Catalon and Kyle Hicks has
averaged 212 yards per game, a
nice compliment to Boykin and the
passing game. While TCU will look
to stick to their guns through the
air, the option to run the ball with
four different backs adds a degree
of versatility to the Frogs dynamic
offense.

TCU defeats Tech in the season’s highest scoring game
By Lena Blietz
[email protected]
TCU is bowl eligible (6-1, 3-1
Big 12) after putting up 82 points
in another record breaking game
against conference rival Texas
Tech. The Frogs came off a 42-9 win
against Oklahoma State and kept the
momentum rolling tonight.
Quarterback Trevone Boykin broke
the TCU record for most touchdown
passes in a single game. The record
came with his sixth TD pass to Ty
Slanina for a 57-yard run. Boykin
continued to push the record with a
seventh pass to Emanuel Porter.
Aaron Green, Josh Doctson, Cliff
Murphy, Deante’ Gray, Ty Slanina,
Emanuel Porter and Trevorris
Johnson all scored touchdowns.
Deante’ Gray ran 92-yards into the
end zone for the longest play of the
game.
Chris Hackett and Sam Carter had
the game’s two interceptions.
With 433 yards, Boykin passed
for over 400 yards in his second
consecutive game. Last week was his
first 400-yard game.
The 82 points scored set a new
school scoring record. The previous
record was set in 2011 in a 69-0
victory over New Mexico.
TCU also broke the record of total
yards in a game, amassing 785 yards.
The prior mark was 782 yards set in
2003 against Houston.
Josh Doctson left the game on
crutches with an ankle injury in
the third quarter. Patterson said
Doctson’s condition is unknown but
he is expected to play next week,
regardless of his attendance at
practice in the upcoming week.
Tech quarterback Patrick
Mahomes entered the game in the
middle of the third quarter after
Davis Webb was injured on the field
and left on crutches.
Chris Hackett and Tech’s D.J.
Polite-Bray were ejected for throwing
punches with eight seconds left in the
third quarter.
“I’ve been telling him not to get
involved for three weeks,” Patterson
said regarding Hackett’s ejection.
Matt Joeckel entered the game at
the start of the fourth quarter, but
was relieved by Zach Allen after one
drive due to injury.
Joeckel’s “situation doesn’t look
good,” said Patterson.
Boykin credits Joeckel with
teaching him to successfully play the
air raid offense.
TCU’s fourth quarterback entered
in the last two minutes. Bram
Kohlhausen, a junior transfer, saw
the field for the first time this season.
Trevorris Johnson ran 25-yards to
give TCU its final touchdown of the
game and put the Frogs up 82-27.
Despite his team’s success,
Patterson said Boykin was one of
several players “not acting the way
he needed to” before the game.
“Leaders have a certain way they
need to do things. You can’t forget
where you came from,” Patterson
said. “You can’t forget last year.”
Patterson credits turnovers for his
team’s scoring success today.
The Horned Frogs travel to
West Virginia Saturday to take on
the Mountaineers at Milan Puskar
Stadium.
“We’re going to have to be
able to score points, because
they know how to score points,”
Patterson said. He also said TCU’s
defense must make improvements
to be able to keep up next week.

haunted houses continued
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6
Every experience is different for
Hangman’s, but the haunted house
gives the daring at least a few good
scares. The actors move in and around
the facility taunting and teasing the
crowd and are relentless if you show
fear (I was continually tormented by a
character with a chainsaw until I went
in). This attraction doesn’t differ from
the rest-it’s family friendly.
There’s nothing truly grotesque or
horrifying, but the actors are completely
engaged and they focus haunt each
individual. There are different sections
of the haunted house focused on
common phobias: spiders, snakes,
clowns, and more. The original fixtures
from the abandoned facility make the
madhouse that more eerie.
It’s worth a time through, because
if you scare easily, or if you like a little
thrill, you get your money’s worth.
A New Kind of Haunt
If you’re a bit of a scaredy cat, then
Hangman’s is the perfect place for
you. They dedicate nights so you can
experience the haunted house with a
flashlight or the lights on.
If you’re a horror aficionado, then
this may not be the experience you
desire. Its focus is family friendly scares.
You won’t be scared out of your wits,
but you’ll be startled a time or two.
For those that have never been to
Hangman’s, it’s definitely a unique
haunt. Hangman’s has never been
known for being dark or terrifying.
Instead it teeters somewhere on the line
of humor and horror.
All of the actors and staff are totally
volunteer. However, that means that
some actors are regulars and some
appear for one night, so you’re never
guaranteed the same experience.
The best thing about Hangman’s
is that all of the proceeds go to
charity. Over it’s 26 years in business,
Hangman’s has earned the title of the
top charity benefiting haunted house in
the world.
Hangman’s has scared over half a
million of people and donated over $2
million to charities since it has opened
in its new location.
At only $25 for general admission
tickets, Hangman’s House of Horrors
is definitely worth the visit. Whether
you are looking for a thrill or just a fun
night out, Hangman’s has plenty to
offer. There’s no waiting in long lines.
Get your ticket, and instead of waiting in
line, enjoy one of the three attractions
or explore the 19 acres of festival
activities including food trucks, live
bands, free photos, and more.
