Colleges in Texas

The second largest state in both area and population, Texas spans through several climate zones so weather varies widely across The Lone Star State. There are six university systems, the University of Houston System, University of North Texas System, University of Texas System, Texas A&M University System, Texas State University System, and the Texas Tech University System. There are also a large number of private liberal arts colleges, theological institutions, and 9 historically black colleges and universities in Texas, to go along with the extensive community college system. Baylor University is the oldest institution in the state, whereas Rice University has the most selective admissions process. Petroleum and natural gas, farming, steel, and banking are top-ranking industries in Texas. The Alamo, Big Bend National Park, and San Antonio’s River Walk are popular attractions.
