It鈥檚 surreal, pretty wild, but also very cool to see myself up there promoting my alma mater.鈥

College professors are people. And like most people, they have their secrets. John T. Harvey, professor of economics, grants extensions to students if they are attending class daily and turning in all of their assignments. He鈥檚 also insulted by academic dishonesty. 鈥淧rofessors take cheating very personally,鈥 Harvey says. 鈥淚f you wanted help or guidance, we would have been happy to provide it. I don't disrespect you, why are you disrespecting me?鈥

TCU plans to soon launch a program in which experts from the local Eating Recovery Center will run intensive on-campus outpatient treatment. Eric Wood, director of counseling and mental health, said, 鈥淲hen students are really at higher risk, you do need a specialist. And not only a specialist. You need a team.鈥 Staffing that expert team often becomes a 鈥渕atter of resources鈥 for institutions. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 such a complex thing. So, I think our way works a lot better, because if you already have community-based treatment centers that have an established program, they have the staffing and we have the infrastructure. And we create this win-win situation.鈥

Storm anxiety, even weather-related phobias, can seem difficult to manage in the moment, but there are ways to cope. Dr. Debra Atkisson, associate professor at the Burnett School of Medicine at TCU, said, 鈥淎s far as in the moment, if you're noticing tension, agitation, pause. Take some deep breaths as a way to reset where you are. Sit down, spend a minute calming and clearing your mind. That's when, if you have a plan in place, it really helps you cope with what's happening.鈥

Background checks into Fort Worth鈥檚 mayoral candidates revealed three candidates have been involved in criminal or civil proceedings in the past 15 years. James Riddlesperger, political science professor, said having a criminal or civil history doesn鈥檛 necessarily doom a candidate. 鈥淚t depends upon how the candidate reacts to it,鈥 he said. 鈥淚f a candidate tries to explain a criminal record and can do so in a compelling way, then it might mitigate the impact on an election. It鈥檚 hard to guess, these days. Obviously, it鈥檚 a disadvantage, but whether it鈥檚 a crippling disadvantage, depends upon the circumstances.鈥

In 2019, Adam McKinney, associate professor of dance, was deep into researching his Black, Jewish and Native American family's genealogy for a solo dance piece he was developing. In search of a former cotton field owned by his Black paternal great-grandparents, McKinney found himself in Forrest City, Arkansas. 鈥淎 question that I often ask is 鈥榃hat can dance do other than entertainment?鈥欌 he said. 鈥淣ot only does dance have the capacity to heal, but, for me, dance has the capacity to fill in the blanks of history.鈥 For McKinney, dance has always been intricately connected to Judaism.

Tributes are in pouring in for former President Jimmy Carter who entered hospice care earlier this week. 鈥淟et's begin with the fact that he came into the presidency in the shadow of Watergate and that he promised the American people he would never lie to them,鈥 Political Science Professor Jim Riddlesperger said. 鈥淭he result of that was that Jimmy Carter provided a fresh breath of air for the American people and someone who was not tainted by Washington and, by the end, by the scandals that had taken place in the years before he became president.鈥

While Ukraine has held up longer than most anticipated one year after Russia invaded Ukraine, the conflict could be far from over, Ralph Carter, political science professor, said. 鈥淩ussia has established a series of things that in literature we call 鈥榝rozen conflicts鈥 that are unresolved, but Russian presence is still there.

Martha Santos, TCU MBA student, is studying energy. She sits on the Hispanic Advisory Committee for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo and is a fourth-generation rancher. Santos grew up on her family鈥檚 ranch in Laredo where they owned a packing plant and a grocery store 鈥 but now, her family鈥檚 Laredo land is almost all commercial. 鈥淲here the country club sits in Laredo, that was part of my grandfather's ranch,鈥 Santos said. 鈥淥bviously, I have a pull and a draw to the land. I don't want to see buildings there where I grew up seeing horses and cattle. But at the same time, that's just part of life.鈥 With her bachelor鈥檚 degree in ranch management from TCU, Santos is now studying energy to fuel a new conversation: How can ranchers stay in business and also adapt to new technology, like solar panels? 鈥淗ow do you incentivize people to stay in (ranching) and not just sell out to a solar farm?鈥 Santos said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 green energy. But we have to also clear the land and displace the quail, the doves, the turkeys and the whitetail: What happens to them too?鈥

Can lead a group of men, fought through adversity, things of that sort.鈥
