The Searchers

Description

“For almost 100 years,” this 1960s promotional film for Texas Christian University states, “this university has been growing—in buildings, scholarships, modern equipment, and, more important, in its commitment to help those who come here in search of understanding.” To explain how the university supports “the searchers,” the film sits down with three current students who share the many reasons why they find TCU great, from seminar-style classes to extracurricular activities to a sense of community.
