Outstanding Seniors Award

Despite the lack of Homecoming in 2020, TCU Student Activities is planning an homage to the tradition of Mr. and Ms. TCU by recognizing two Outstanding Seniors this fall. Two senior undergraduate students will be selected through a competitive process of applications, voting, and interviews to represent the University.

Each registered TCU student organization may nominate one Outstanding Senior applicant.  Nominated individuals must then complete the online application in order to be accepted as an official candidate for Outstanding Senior.

Application essays and resumes will be scored and the student body vote will be tallied to calculate the Outstanding Seniors finalists.  These 10 finalists will continue in the selection process by participating in faculty/staff interviews in weeks leading up to Traditions Week (October 19-24).  The two Outstanding Seniors will be announced at the football game on October 24, 2020, which will be the culmination of Traditions Week. More information about the selection process can be found in the timeline and resources below.
