Texas Woman’s University

Texas Woman’s University (TWU)

The next stop we made was at Texas Woman’s University (TWU), located in Denton, Texas. Despite the name, it is not just for females. However, it is the nation’s largest university primarily for women.  Faculty and staff are dedicated to the success of TWU’s students, and it certainly shows since they are graduating more new Healthcare professionals than any other university in Texas. They are also easing the teacher shortage by placing highly qualified professionals in the classroom.

We found campus to be a fun, liberating, and creative place to learn, as you can see by the photos below.  The bright colors in the theater draw attention to the building and call you in for more.  The free speech signs throughout campus remind you to value the ability to speak your mind, freely.

Notable Facts about TWU:

TWU is one of only 16 universities in the United
States — and the only university in Texas — selected to participate in the American Democracy Project Civic Agency Initiative.  The three-year program (2008-11) is a
national initiative focused on encouraging students to be civic leaders in their communities.

 

The TWU Concert Choir made its Carnegie Hall debut

 in 2005, performing with the National Women’s Festival Chorus.  TWU’s choir was the only one asked to perform alone at the festival.

The TWU Drama Program debuted “The Long March” at New York City’s Greenwich Street Theater in 2006 in collaboration with the Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin, Ireland

Our visit to TWU was colorful in many ways… we hope to make it back very soon to visit again!
