About Fort Worth

HSC and the Fort Worth Cultural District and skyline

Welcome to Fort Worth

Home to the historic Stockyards, the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and the award-winning Dickies Arena, Fort Worth is the fifth-largest city in Texas and 13th biggest in the United States.

Voted by readers of Conde Nast Traveler as one of the friendliest cities in America and designated as one of “America’s Most Livable Communities,” Fort Worth is now home to nearly 1 million people.

“Cowtown” has more than 10,000 acres of parks, hundreds of miles of trail and is quickly becoming one of the country’s most bike friendly cities. HSC even sponsors one of Fort Worth’s bike-sharing stations right on campus.

Fort Worth also boasts numerous notable attractions, including the Fort Worth Zoo — ranked top 10 in the nation — the Botanic Gardens, Will Rogers Memorial Center and three world-class art museums: Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Kimbell Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

After a short car ride, you’ll find Texas Motor Speedway, Globe Life Field – home of the Texas Rangers baseball team – and the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

HSC is nestled in the middle of the Cultural District, just minutes from the trendy West Seventh area’s shopping, dining, nightlife and residences — all within a pedestrian friendly, urban setting.
