List of famous alumni from Texas Christian University, with photos when available. Prominent graduates from Texas Christian University include celebrities, politicians, business people, athletes and more. This list of distinguished Texas Christian University alumni is loosely ordered by relevance, so the most recognizable celebrities who attended Texas Christian University are at the top of the list. This directory is not just composed of graduates of this school, as some of the famous people on this list didn't necessarily earn a degree from Texas Christian University.

Items on this list include LaDainian Tomlinson and Andy Dalton and other famous TCU alumni. What is TCU known for? Lot's of stuff... for example their mascot is a Horned Frog. They are the TCU Horned Frogs. How neat!

This list answers the questions “Which famous people went to Texas Christian University?” and “Which celebrities are Texas Christian University alumni?”
