If a current proposal in Texas legislature is passed, public universities would be required to allow Concealed Handgun License holders to carry guns on campus. Private universities such as TCU would have the choice, but are still affected by the decision.
Even with the pressure, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Don Mills said he is certain that guns should remain off campus.
Mills said even with private universities having the final decision whether to allow CHL carriers to exercise these rights on campus, the proposed bill still affects TCU.
Approximately 60 miles from campus a big cat sanctuary affords interns the opportunity to get up close and personal with lions, tigers, cougars, and leopards.
The Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE) rescues and rehabilitates sick, injured, and abused big cats.
The Center's interns, who live on site, work full time for four to six months and provide all aspects of care for the cats.
Two TCU alumni are building the Fort Worth, Texas: The City's Magazine 2011 dream home.
Chris Powers Jr. and Andrew Curtis, who have been in real estate for a combined nine years, formed Powers & Curtis in October of last year. By November, they had purchased their first property.
In December, the magazine selected their plans to be the 5,000 square foot dream home after an interview process.
