100 (or so) years of TCU Abroad

100 (or so) years of TCU Abroad

In 1911, TCU set sail for Europe and began a 100-year tradition of study abroad.

TCU’s first international trip involved a 1911 European voyage aboard the S.S. Uranium.

The mayor of Fort Worth commissioned TCU professor Egbert R. Cockrell to “study the problems connected with the cities of America, England and Europe, and make a report…” Students were invited on the trip, but in the end only TCU President Clinton Lockhart and husband and wife professors, Egbert and Dura Cockrell, made the journey. Study Abroad celebrated a century of world travel in August. Here are highlights of 100 years of globe-trotting Horned Frog adventures. Images courtesy Special Collections.
