TCU quotable: Frogs looking to convert energy on the road to winning at home | Dallas Morning News

Have to find a way to win at home Saturday... because it could be the last chance to avoid the Amon G goose egg this fall.

Head coach Gary Patterson

On getting a win for a young team

“We have to figure out why we play so much better on the road than we do at home energy wise. We stayed at our home hotel last night and then bussed down to Waco. We just need to figure out how to play at home like we do on the road. Maybe it’s because we get booed on the road, maybe I need to talk our hometown fans into booing us, maybe that will work.”

TCU and UNTHSC develop COVID-19 research group | TCU 360

The more people studying this, the better.

The group also expanded its possible treatment targets beyond COVID-19 and is looking at how what they develop could help patients with inflammatory diseases.

“We are really hopeful with the hypotheses we have come up with that we are able to look at response patterns with patients that have a history of autoimmune diseases,” said Sathyamoorthy.

The group has also moved forward with its research and applied its first proposal of findings to the Food and Drug Administration to be able to repurpose currently available drugs to fight COVID-19.

Student Success Series workshops aim to support TCU students | TCU 360

Glad to see TCU offering extra opportunities for student readiness.

Student Success Series is a series of workshops being put on by Student Development Services to educate students about things like time management and stress control.

“The goal is to provide student workshops that holistically support their living and learning at TCU with virtual and in-person options, which we are hearing that students are really craving during this time,” said Keri Cyr, the director of student success.

Workshops that have previously been held include “Time Management: Balancing Life and Academics,” “Study Smart,” and “Manage Your Stress Before It Manages You.”

In another workshop held earlier last month titled “Reading to Understand,” Stacy Mason, the associate director of student access and administration, educated students on how to comprehend readings and overall be more confident readers.
