Five students were hit by a car as they stood on the pedestrian median on University Drive Wednesday night shortly before 6 p.m., said TCU police officer Fred Pruitt.
Steven Baker and Adam Southey were taken by ambulance to Harris Methodist-Fort Worth Hospital, said hospital spokeswoman Laura VanHoosier. Both were listed in good condition Wednesday night.
Hunter Harris, Brent Marks and Adam Brown left the scene, uninjured.
A 61-year-old Fort Worth woman was driving southbound on University Drive in a white four-door Cadillac when she swerved from the right lane to the left lane. She drove her car over the curb and hit the students, sophomore marketing major Drew Ingram who saw the accident said.

Both Fort Worth and TCU Police officials were dispatched to University Drive, Wednesday night after a 61-year-old Fort Worth woman drove her car over the curb and hit five TCU students. Three of the men who were hit walked away from the accident. Two others were transported to Harris Methodist Hospital and were listed in good condition Wednesday night.


The House of Student Representatives donated $1,000 Tuesday to the Arnold Air Society, a group of students from area universities who participate in the TCU Air Force ROTC program.
The brief published in Wednesday’s Skiff incorrectly stated the money was given to Air Force ROTC.

In an effort to provide students and faculty with the opportunity to “share faith in a global community” University Ministries conducted its first-ever Spanish-speaking service at Robert Carr Chapel, Wednesday.
Even those who did not speak Spanish could appreciate the service, said Chris Stillwell, a Brite student and University Ministries intern.
“It’s not just the words of the service that can (have) meaning, but a great deal is the attitude and the ritual (of the service),” Stillwell said.
Kristi Kolpanen, a freshman computer science major who attends chapel services every week, said she understood a little of the Spanish service.

Staff Reporter

The role of women in combat is a new thought in some Americans’ minds after the recent terrorist attacks and President Bush’s subsequent deployment of troops to the Middle East and call up of 50,000 active reserves.
Lt. Col. James House, a professor of military science, said one of the biggest problems facing women in combat is the social issue.
