Finding a Place

Hi everyone! It has been a while… my apologies. That won’t happen again. New year, new me, right?              So, if you’re on this page, chances are there’s a reason for it. Either you’re interested in calling us, of maybe you’re even interested in becoming an Ear. Or, maybe, someone posted about Ears on your class […]

September Slump, October Opportunities?

Hi y’all and welcome back to the blog!   September is, in a word, overwhelming. For new students, strictly the fact that you are new is hard.

How to text Ears anonymously

The thing about being a student-led, TCU-funded, anonymous organization is that we don’t have the most state-of-the-art technology. Our computer runs Windows Vista. Our phone is a landline.

Know More November

*takes off spooky mask* Shit, it’s November already? As October comes to a close and the spookiness around campus start to disappear, you don’t want to end up like that pumpkin on top of Carm that stays there for two weeks until it rots away into nothingness. To keep ourselves fresh as a pumpkin pie straight out of the […]

Feeling Oct-Over It?

While I’d love to spend the entirety of this post commiserating with you […]
