  • Brothers Addison and Randolph Clark founded TCU in 1873 in Thorp Spring, Texas, as AddRan Male and Female College.
  • The name was changed to AddRan Christian University in 1889 and Texas Christian University in 1902.
  • TCU relocated to downtown Fort Worth in 1910 when the Waco facility burned, and opened three new buildings on the present campus in 1911.


This is an education in which people are the priority. The TCU experience enables our students to broaden their intellect, their beliefs and their values — the qualities most needed for leadership in a rapidly evolving environment. Whether in the fine arts or health or engineering, Horned Frogs can discover their passions and expand their talents.


Astronomy professor Dr. Peter Frinchaboy has completed his fourth year conducting an NSF-funded project to create and guide research experiences for undergraduates. Students are selected from Texas and other states to attend the summer program and complete a research project under his guidance.
