Texas Christian University, founded in 1873, is a private, church-affiliated university. It is a major teaching and research university with the feel of a small college. It is large enough to challenge and small enough to care, an affordable, private university with a faculty that cares, friends who last, values you expect and viewpoints you don't. TCU attracts and serves those who want to lead and learn. Its 237-acre campus is located three miles from downtown Fort Worth.
