Greetings from Texas Christian University
TCU has always been about the people. It’s been that way since the beginning in 1873. Our founder, Addison Clark, observed that this is a school where students would be “taught how to study, would be given a purpose in life and a foundation on which to build character.”
TCU has grown from the original 13 students to nearly 11,000. We’ve become a major teaching and research institution, and our influence has moved beyond campus borders to Fort Worth, Texas, the nation and the world. But we are still characterized by mentoring relationships, caring teacher-scholars, challenging classes and close-knit community — we’re definitely a culture of connection.
Since the first time I stepped on this campus, I’ve known TCU is a special place. I hope you’ll feel the same way as you continue to explore and hopefully visit us in person.
