Originally established in 1901 by the Texas State Legislature as the Girls Industrial College, the Texas Woman's University (TWU) has undergone a number of name changes - such as the College of Industrial Arts and Sciences and Texas State College for Women - before settling on its current name in 1957. The school began accepting men into its health sciences graduate school in 1972 and became a completely co-educational institution of higher education in 1994. Today, TWU is the largest state school for women in the United States, and its nursing program is one of the biggest in the world.
Students living in student housing or an off campus apartment at TWU have access to the school's five sub-colleges including the College of Nursing, Graduate School, College of Health Sciences, College of Professional Education and the College of Arts and Sciences. Many of TWU's most popular majors include English, chemistry, sociology and social work, physical therapy, nursing, teaching, computer science and foreign languages.
Student living and university living at TWU revolve around several unique campus features. The TWU Art Collection contains many acquisitions from alumni, students, professors and supporters. Built in 1939, the school's Little Chapel-in-the-Woods is a defining architectural landmark dedicated by Eleanor Roosevelt.
