NORTH TEXAS STATE
North Texas State University was originally established in 1890 as a Normal College in the city of Denton.
J.C. Chilton leased facilities and was the school's first president until the term 1893-94, when he resigned. In
1899 the Texas Legislature accepted the buildings and grounds of the North Texas Normal College, offered to
the State by the city of Denton. Nine administrations have been completed and three name changes have
occurred since the school became state-supported.
Originally established as a teacher education facility, the University has broadened its academic scope to
include eight colleges and schools with a strong graduate education emphasis.
The University grounds cover some 412 acres and the physical plant contains 69 buildings.
