Why we chose it: While the University of Illinois at Chicago is headquarters of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization, TCU has the largest chapter with more than 350 student members. Part of the draw is the club's annual Road Trip, which takes students to tour super-successful former startups, such as Dell. The school's Texas Youth Entrepreneur Competition awards scholarship money to high-school students who submit winning business plans. The funds can be used at any college or university, but the amount is doubled for winners who attend TCU. "Many of the winners end up coming here," says David Minor, director of the school's Neeley Entrepreneurship Center. "These are kids that would traditionally go someplace like Wharton."
