TCU is home to the horned frogs. The campus is only a couple miles away from downtown Fort Worth. Students can get the small-town feel with the big city vibe. Fort Worth’s western heritage and internationally renowned arts scene is a testament to this. Students come from across the country to attend TCU not only for their excellent academic and athletic programs but also for its service opportunities! Volunteer activities are a particularly big draw for students. The school’s Center for Community Involvement & Service-Learning coordinates excursions like service trips over spring break to get students involved. The campus is beautiful, and you won’t regret paying TCU a visit!
