University description (as per official university website)

About Austin College

Learning. Leadership. Lasting Values. These are just a few terms that describe the experiences that are embraced and inspire the people who gravitate toward Austin College.
Austin College is a private, coeducational, liberal arts institution affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Collegeís 70-acre campus is located in Sherman, Texas, north of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, one of the top 10 regions in the nation in terms of population, as well as offering professional and cultural opportunities to Austin College students and alumni.
For students, itís our nationally respected academic programs, active student life and caring, attentive faculty that really stand out. Parents appreciate our safe, attractive campus and our high graduate school acceptance rates. Alumni see in Austin College a connection to something larger than themselves and more enduring than the span of a single life. And friends, of course, are always welcome.

History

Founded in 1849 by Princeton-educated Presbyterian Missionary Dr. Daniel Baker, Austin College has long been known for innovative programs, a strong faculty and state-of-the-art facilities.
Austin College received a charter signed by Texas Governor George Wood in November of 1849. Modeled after that of Princeton University, the Collegeís charter is still in use today, making Austin College the oldest institution of higher education in Texas operating under its original charter.
The college opened in Huntsville and admitted its first class in the fall of 1850. Its original building still stands in Huntsville. Two presidents of the Republic of Texas, Sam Houston and Anson Jones, served on its original board of trustees. Three yellow fever epidemics, the Civil War years, and difficult economic conditions prompted its relocation to north Texas.
Austin College moved to Sherman, a more promising area, in 1876. The college became coeducational in 1918, merging in 1930 with Texas Presbyterian College, an institution for women. The Depression and World War II interrupted expansion and development. Beginning in the 1950s, the college engaged in extensive experimentation aimed at improving the traditional liberal arts curriculum. In 1972, the college adopted the comprehensive educational program that still shapes the academic life and curriculum of the college.
Since its founding by the Brazos Presbytery, Austin College has been related to the Presbyterian Church; that relationship continues to give the College a distinctive flavor to this day.
Austin College was the first college in Texas to grant a graduate degree.

Austin College - Mission Statement

Austin College is a private, residential, co-educational college dedicated to educating undergraduate students in the liberal arts and sciences while also offering select pre-professional programs and a graduate teacher education program. Founded by the Presbyterian Church in 1849, Austin College continues its relationship with the church and its commitment to a heritage that values personal growth, justice, community, and service. An Austin College education emphasizes academic excellence, intellectual and personal integrity, and participation in community life.

Financial Aid
A college education is a significant financial investment. Austin College seeks to make education accessible to qualified students by offering both competitive merit scholarships and need-based aid, including grants, loans, and campus work-study.
