We went to Fort Worth to visit TCU, Texas Christian University. Like our visit the day before in Tulsa, we spent a night at a hotel. Then we did the college tour in the morning.
The University of Tula was lightly inspired by gothic architecture, a popular choice for many campuses. TCU has more of a Greek (or is it Roman?) influence with its columned architecture. I saw several examples during my visit, especially with the older buildings.
The campus structures consistently use this sandstone/light brown brick, which matched the aesthetic of Texas. While red brick is well-used in the Northeast, this sand color is in keeping with the hot climate.
