I decided to drive to the University on one of the nights I was in Fort Worth and I loved what I saw. Beautiful! Wish I could have had time to explore during the day.

Besides being a great university, TCU has a few hidden spaces that should be explored...Monnig Meteorite Gallery (monnigmuseum.tcu.edu - in the Sid Richardson Science Building, 1-4 Tuesday-Friday, 9-4 Saturday) and two art galleries (theartgalleries.tcu.edu). We love to walk around campus whenever in town, it truly is one of the most beautiful university campuses in Texas.

Campus is not very pretty. Location is ok for students. Area is improving - which is nice to see. Parking is a nightmare.

Well, I'm a Horned Frog myself, so I might be a bit biased. ;) But seriously, my husband agrees: this campus is beautiful. That's because it's "old" enough to have amazing architecture, set amid old shady trees and landscaping.

I have no students there so this was just a drive through. Real close to downtown Ft. Worth. It is obvious the sports department had put a lot of resources into their football stadium however you can't take away just that as the rest of the campus looks very nice.It is obvious that the city has done a great deal...

We were there for PSIA competition and enjoyed the campus while our child was in the competition. Parking was good and there were a lot of safety phones and cameras all over campus, all within 100 yards of each other. Very nice clean grounds and well taken care of. As it was Sat. morning, there were not too many kids... More

We went to visit our grandson in his Freshman year and were so impressed with the school. The grounds are beautiful and he just loves it there. A great college town surrounds it. Any kid would love to go there.

TCU is not only a very reputable University, but they have a beautiful campus with well- maicured landscapes and gorgeous buildings. If you want to experience the "real TCU" go in the Fall when their football team is playing. Your will love it!

A nice mix of old and new buildings. A couple really made me scratch my head but the campus is beautiful. The landscaping is what really makes it shine. So many flowers!
