Today, Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. welcomed
faculty, staff and students to Texas Christian University’s 140th academic year by highlighting TCU’s past accomplishments and future activities. Boschini noted that total enrollment is up this year over last, that TCU remains the second most selective school in Texas, and that this year’s freshman class has the highest SAT and ACT scores in TCU history. In addition, the freshman-to-sophomore retention rate has risen to 89.7 percent from 87 percent last year. The Chancellor also noted TCU’s future construction activities, including a new phase of construction set to begin under the ongoing strategic plan, Vision in Action (VIA). This next phase of VIA has been themed The Academy of Tomorrow, and will incorporate building new facilities on the east side of campus to form an Intellectual Commons that will complement the Campus Commons.
