Donald Griffinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/donald-griffin/ “I honestly had no idea we had a campus dietitian,” junior music education major Alex Kilcoyne said. “I think students would use [the dietitian] more if they knew we had one.”Mathes wants students to know that she is available to all students.“I want them to know that my services are completely complementary,” Mathes said. “ I will talk to anybody about any nutrition related concern.”Food allergies, eating disorders and exercise concerns all fall under things Mathes said she addresses with students.“There may be students that I have to refer out because they are beyond my scope of practice,” Mathes said. “However, if I can be their starting point, I would be thrilled.” Donald Griffin is a senior journalism major and serves as the Executive Editor for TCU360. He just returned from a semester in Washington D.C. where he interned for the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Library makes study space changes for finals week ReddIt Linkedin Twitter printThe TCU Health Center added a new campus dietitian to its staff to help address the dietary concerns of students.Lindsey Mathes, from Buffalo, New York, now serves as the TCU Campus Dietitian in order to help aid the dietary concerns of Horned Frog students.Mathes said she left a desk job in 2007 because she wanted to be involved in the health of society. After earning a degree from the distance dietetics program at Kansas State University and receiving her license, Mathes came to TCU on Aug. 9.“TCU is seeing more students with dietary restrictions and food allergies, according to Director of Operations of TCU Dining Services Michael Dahl,” Mathes said.There was uncertainty for these students and parents about who to contact about dining hall concerns. Mathes now serves as that point of contact.“Students will come to me and say ‘I have celiac. I’m afraid to eat in the dining halls because of cross-contamination,’” Mathes said.In addition to seeing students with dietary restrictions, Mathes said she sees students with general dietary concerns.“The ‘freshman fifteen’ phrase continues to exist,” Mathes said. “Some are finding [they’re] gaining weight and don’t know how to balance their diets.”Mathes provides students with tips on balancing their diets and living healthier lives.TCU Campus Dietitian Lindsey Mathes said these three tips will help college students to maintain a healthy lifestyle during their time at TCU.

Wife of famed pianist pleads not guilty in daughters’ deaths

first_imgprintFORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The estranged wife of an internationally known pianist pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that she killed the couple’s young daughters at their Texas home.Sofya Tsygankova entered her plea during a brief court appearance in Fort Worth. Her arraignment came one day after she was charged with capital murder in the deaths of 5-year-old Nika Kholodenko and 1-year-old Michela Kholodenko.Tsygankova was a temporary part-time worker employee at TCU, according to an email from TCU spokeswoman Holly Ellman. She said Tsygankova was hired in February 2016, and the last day she worked was March 16.Ellman said TCU does not comment on personnel matters.Vadym Kholodenko, a winner of the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, discovered his daughters’ bodies March 17 when he arrived at the home to take them to school. Arrest affidavits say the girls were found dead on beds.A pillow partially covered the head of the youngest child, but police Cmdr. David Babcock said Wednesday that investigators haven’t determined whether the children had been smothered. He said that determination would be made by the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.Online records for the office indicated Wednesday only that the children died of “homicidal violence” and that autopsies are pending.Tsygankova was kneeling on the floor wearing a blood-stained nightgown and “rocking back and forth,” the affidavits say. She had wounds on her wrist and chest, and a butcher knife was found near the home’s patio.At one point she asked investigators, “Did I do anything bad to my kids?”An empty bottle labeled with her name and the anti-psychotic drug quetiapine was found on the kitchen counter, police said. Authorities later learned she had visited a mental health facility the day before.Tsygankova was first taken to a Fort Worth hospital, where, according to affidavits, she told police she remembered putting her 5-year-old daughter to sleep and seeing her 1-year-old daughter asleep in her crib. She also told police she remembered taking pills and believed she hurt herself with a knife.Tsygankova was booked Tuesday into the Tarrant County jail.In a written statement, her attorney, Joetta Keene, declined to comment on the specific allegations of the affidavit. “This is, no doubt, a very heartbreaking case for everyone involved,” she said.The Ukrainian-born Kholodenko beat nearly 30 finalists from 12 countries to win the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth in 2013. He and Tsygankova were married in 2010 and filed for divorce last year. Kholodenko no longer lived at the home with Tsygankova and their daughters, but routinely picked up the children from the home in the mornings.The girls were buried Monday at a private service.On Tuesday evening, mourners gathered at Arlington Heights United Methodist Church to remember the girls.“In times like this, we seek answers for how something so terrible could happen,” the Rev. Mary Spradlin said. “It is profoundly unsatisfying to know there are no clear answers. There are some questions we will never be able to answer.”Near the end of the church gathering, Kholodenko played a movement from Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 3 with three string players from the Fort Worth Symphony.Copyright 2016 The Associated Press.

The administration is now trying to determine whether to renew a 10-year contract to consider drafting a new one with a different company.“We are seeking people’s feedback about what is going well, what needs change and what we might need in the next several years as the demographics of our campus continue to change,” said Vice Chancellor Kathy Cavins-Tull.Students, faculty, and staff members are invited to participate in an open forum Sept. 18 at noon in the Tucker Technology Center to discuss their opinions on the current Sodexo food contract. For those who can’t attend the meeting, there will also be a campus-wide survey and people can send written feedback to [email protected] first open forum to discuss the dining contract was Wednesday, where mostly staff and faculty members were in attendance and praised the kind and welcoming nature of the employees in dining services. As for student opinion on the food, Student Government Association (SGA) Representative Laredo Loyd said that Sodexo does a good job of catering to the university lifestyle with programs like Late Night and Sunday brunch.However other SGA representatives were not as happy with the Sodexo options, citing market Square’s layout, its lack of ethnic and diverse food options, its lackluster food quality and the out-of-budget catering price for student organizations as some of the issues with the contract.Hall Director Keely Teters said that some students have to eat after or before traditional meal times which can limit their options at Market Square even more.Several students are also less than pleased with their choices at Market Square. “Market Square I think could definitely use some help,” said sophomore Callie McClellan. “Most people eat there, but I feel like they have the least quality food.”A vocal displeasure at the Sodexo food options is a common occurrence from many students around campus, dating back for years.As for solutions to their issues with Market Square, SGA Representative Alexis Hood suggested that local produce be available in retail shops in order to accommodate the growing population of students with food allergies and vegan and vegetarian students.Some faculty and staff members also said that bringing more food trucks on campus could reach far-off campus locations, and it could allow for more diverse, healthier options.The Food Service Review Committee encourages all students to suggest ways that TCU dining can improve long-term and send them to their SGA representatives or to the [email protected] email.The committee is expecting to reach a decision on the Sodexo contract by the end of the semester.</p><section><h2>Should the Sodexo contract be renewed?</h2></section><section><h2>Yes</h2></section><section><h3>No</h3></section><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Quiz Maker – powered by RiddleCorrection: A previous version of this story stated the incorrect email address.

TCU keeps gender ratio, looks to increase diversity

first_imgprintLooking across TCU’s campus during a rush to class, two things are obvious – there are more women than men on campus, and there are few students of color. While admissions is taking steps to increase diversity on campus, it looks like the gender gap is staying the same. The Office of Institutional Research released the updated student demographic data for 2017 in October. Nowell Donovan, the provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs, has analyzed trends and compared TCU’s data with other schools in a series of presentations throughout the semester. Student Ethnic DemographicsEthnic diversity is about more than morality it is the key to staying relevant, Heath Einstein, the undergraduate admissions counselor, said. He added that increasing diversity benefits the campus community.In an email, Karen Espino, a junior mechanical engineering and math double major, wrote increasing diversity would help minority students feel more welcome. She also said diversity improves learning.“Diversity allows for different ideas and opinions to be brought up,” Espino said. “Sometimes, people need a different point of view in order to understand a subject.”While there are more Hispanic students at TCU than before (in fact, Einstein said this demographic made up the largest increase), the proportion of African American students at TCU has remained the same. This stagnancy comes despite an increased number of African American students.“Proportionately, there’s been no increase in African American students,” Donovan said. InfogramEspino said she notices the lack of diversity on campus– saying as a minority, the lack of diversity is “apparent.” Espino also said diversity promotes awareness of different backgrounds.“It makes students aware of the fact that there are people of many different backgrounds, and definitely makes them more open-minded,” Espino said. Einstein said TCU hosts recruitment events for students of color, including Shades of Purple, which recruits students of color from the Dallas-Fort Worth area. “The percent of students of color here is not where we want it,” Einstein said. “But it’s the highest it’s ever been.”Student Gender RatioWomen have dominated TCU for 40 years, but the Horned Frogs aren’t the only ones with female student population on the rise. In 1994, 63 percent of females and 61 of males attended college immediately after graduating high school. However, in 2012 female enrollment increased to 71 percent, while male enrollment didn’t change. Boschini said 65.4 percent of college degrees in the last two years were earned by women. Donovan said the ratio between male and female students at TCU has been “essentially flat.” The ratio, which is 52 females to 48 males, hasn’t changed in the past 40 years, Donovan said. InfogramTCU would have to admit 950 more men and 950 fewer women to even the gender ratio– something Donovan said won’t be happening.“It’s not realistically going to happen,” Donovan said. “I don’t want to lose 950 females.” Previous articleUpcoming construction on Bluebonnet CircleNext articleThe ‘Let’s Talk’ program starts a new conversation about mental health at TCU Caroline Love RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin ReddIt Caroline Lovehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caroline-love/ Caroline Lovehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caroline-love/ Caroline Love Facebook Linkedin Caroline Love graduated from TCU’s journalism program in May 2019.

Linkedin Madison Goforth is a Senior journalism major from Tyler, Texas. Army ROTC spends weekend practicing tactical missions However, he didn’t let that mental block get in the way for long. With the support of family and friends, Filikitonga finished his rehab and made it back strong for his senior season.“I felt successful — like I had done my job,” he said. Filikitonga verbally committed to play football for the Frogs after the Polynesian Bowl and made it official Wednesday.“TCU has always felt like home,” he said. “The players learn so much from these coaches and do big things in the NFL.”Filikitonga was the 20th commit for the 2018 class. He chose TCU over the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University.Trinity Euless head coach Chris Jenson said Filikitonga is an energy machine.“He is what we call a potboiler, he gets the water boiling,” Jenson said. “He is upbeat, positive and will be an awesome teammate.”Filikitonga said he decided to stay close to home because he is a family man.“I am glad to be a role model for my siblings and cousins,” he said. “My family has always been there for me and I want to be there for them.”He has four brothers and two sisters and said his family will always come first in his life. Jenson said Filikitonga’s family has a lot to do with his success as a teammate.“He has a great mom and dad who taught him how to be a great man,” Jenson said. “He understands his size, skill and ability is a privilege and he doesn’t flaunt that in anyone’s face.”Filikitonga’s high school journey wasn’t always easy.During the fourth game of his junior season, he injured his foot and underwent surgery. After months of rehab, he was back for spring ball but hurt his foot again.“After that second injury, I had a mental breakdown,” he said.

Photo Courtesy of GoFrogs.comTCU women’s basketball battled with No. 2 Baylor all the way through the fourth quarter but ultimately came up short, falling 66-57 to drop to 4-2 in conference play.“I’m proud of where their heads are at prior to the game, in-game and postgame in just having an unsatisfied mentality and that’s where it’s going to say,” head coach Raegan Pebley said.In the first half, TCU limited the Bears to just 30 points, Baylor’s second-lowest scoring effort through the first 20 minutes of play this season. The Frogs also went on an 11-point scoring run in the second quarter against the Lady Bears, which is only the second time the Bears have allowed a run with a scoring differential of that size. Baylor held a slim 30-26 lead going into halftime, but the Frogs would come out of the half hungry for the lead.In the final four minutes of the third quarter, the Lady Bears went 0-4 from the free-throw line, and TCU closed out the quarter on a 5-0 run to take a 45-44 lead.Baylor separated themselves on an 8-0 run to open the fourth quarter.  “The way the schedule is set up, you have to learn quick what you lost in that game. I think in that game we lose the fourth quarter,” senior guard Kianna Ray said. “We just kind of lost momentum, we lost energy, we lost focus. So, going into the next game, we are going to have a huge emphasis on the fourth quarter.”A three-pointer by Jaycee Bradley brought TCU within four points of the Lady Bears, but Baylor closed out the game.“Give TCU credit, those kids were fired up and they came ready to play,” Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey said.Ray finished the game with 16 points, which moves her to No. 19 on TCU’s all-time scoring chart.Guard Lauren Heard scored 11 points and has now put together double-digit scoring efforts in 14 consecutive games.Next, the Horned Frogs will face off against No. 25 West Virginia this at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.

The Arlington store is Crazy Cazboy’s fifth location.Founder and CEO John Cassimus said he wants to bring a high energy environment and create excitement around these “incredible” deals.The idea came to Cassimus in 2017 when he learned how exciting the liquidation business is and how few people were integrating the sales process and a high-energy marketing effort.“I purchased my first truckload of overstock and box-damaged merchandise and that led to opening my first fixed priced liquidation store, Mike’s Merchandise,” Cassimus said. “I was introduced to the bin store concept and the uniformed step down model was thrilling and a great opportunity for growth.” Dispute over 24/7 poker room in Hulen Pointe Mall resolved Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ Linkedin Linkedin Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ Twitter Facebook What we’re reading: Biden to pull troops out of Afghanistan, Chauvin chooses not to testify Logan Orsini Welcome TCU Class of 2025 ReddIt Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ Cassimus said they are continuing to rapidly grow the brand, and expect six to eight new stores to open this year.“We have the largest liquidation deals in the country with Amazon and many other US retailers,” Cassimus said. “We have an enormous amount of product to sell at incredible prices.” What we’re reading: Biden to unveil gun control plans, MLB moves All-Star Game to Colorado + posts Previous articleHoroscope: April 11, 2021Next articleBoard approves tuition freeze, RRI actions but doesn’t act on eligibility issue spurred by Williams Logan Orsini RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution The outside of DFW’s newest retail store.
