            TCU Fort Worth, TexasYI recommend TCU because it has provided secondary education for several of my family members who are all professional and invoved in their community. I was on campus and shared graduation '99 with my brother who's group were the first graduates of the new Engineering School. TCU's continued growth and value of programs is impressive. TCU provides an education with the closeness of family. I was stopped in my tracks at the Seattle Mariner game last week to meet up with classes '09, and '13. They gave themselves away by wearing school colors. After hugs, we giggled and signaled our horned frog as we went our separate ways.
