Happy TCU MBA Thanksgiving!

TCU MBA students recently sat down for their annual Thanksgiving potluck, a Neeley tradition, and we had the opportunity to ask what they’re thankful for this year. While some are just happy for a few days off (who can blame them!), others reflected on how grateful they are to be a part of the TCU MBA community. Here’s what they had to say:

A break from classes! The MBA workload can get overwhelming, especially this close to the end of the semester. “It’s great to have a brief break from classes to enjoy friends and family, even if I need to use some of that time to catch up on school projects,” says Chris Metz.

Family and classmates who now feel like family. "My classmates are my running buddies, accountability partners and friends,” says Helen Tannehill, noting how collaborative the environment is at TCU compared to other MBA programs.

Health. “MBA is a bit like running a marathon. I’m glad we’re all healthy as we go into the home stretch of the semester,” says Stephen Arbuckle.

Football. It’s fall, and that means college football. Our students come from all over the country (and the world) and root for many different teams. But here, they enjoy coming together for the MBA tailgates and cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs. “[Tailgating] is an opportunity to have some fun, a time for everyone to relax,” says Ian Braucksieker.

Being a part of TCU MBA. “We’re lucky to be able to say, ‘I’m one of 50’ in a program like this. That’s pretty special,” says Chelsea Franklin.

Happy Thanksgiving from the TCU MBA family to yours!
