The Success of TCU Education

Editor's Note: Today I am wearing an Ann Taylor Sweater and Flats with a J. Crew silk blouse and AG jeans. 

As some of you know my daughter Riley attends Texas Christian University and she is a senior and has loved every minute of it. Texas Christian University has become one of the hardest schools to get into in Texas. I believe this is not only due to our sports team especially the football team but how TCU has stepped up their academic program. A large part of the increase in academic excellence is due to the TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini. Chancellor Boschini has mentioned that he has wanted TCU to become similar to a Vanderbilt style school. With the increase in academics comes an increase in a creative and entrepreneurial mind set among the students and alumni. 

I thought it would be fun to mention some of the real super stars that have come out of TCU. The three that stand out in my mind are Bob Schieffer who TCU's Communications & Journalism School is named after, Andy Dalton one of TCU's top quarterbacks in history and now a starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, and Sue Monk Kidd a writer famed by her best seller The Secret Life of Bees
