Texas Christian University is a private, 4-year school located in the heart of Fort Worth, TX. Set just 3 miles from downtown, TCU’s 300+ acre campus has an academic quad that features Spanish Colonial architecture – complete with the red tile roofs. The campus is made up of three primary areas: residential, academic and “Worth Hills” where the Greek housing and the football stadium are. Founded in 1873, the school is affiliated with the Disciples of Christ. The school was founded in Fort Worth, but moved to Thorp Spring in 1873. In 1895 the school moved again to Waco and, finally, returned to Fort Worth in 1910. Among many notable alumni are NFL quarterback Andy Dalton, former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson and the Professor from Gilligan’s Island (fictionally, of course).
