Texas Christian University was founded in 1873, in Thorp Spring, Texas, as the AddRan Male and Female College. By 1895, the school relocated to Waco, Texas, and moved once more, in 1910 to Fort Worth. During this period the school also adopted its current name, Texas Christian University. Today, Texas Christian University is a four-year private, not-for-profit, co-educational institution. Though TCU retains ties to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), many religious groups and recognized faith-based organizations are present on campus, including students of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim faiths.
