The College Town Renaissance Center (CTRC) was formally established in early 2018.   The Center is located at the edge of downtown Arlington, Texas (Abram and Davis Street) and on the north end of  the University of Texas @ Arlington campus. The CTRC sits on an acre of land which allows for inside and outside activities.
