Webster University undeniably takes first place.

But I would like to know more American universities and colleges which have a big chess club.

  • There is no best. Logical fallacy. There is no way to compare clubs so you can definitively say that A>B>C as you will find examples where A>B>C>A. Jan 22, 2020 at 18:45
  • If you go by size then it will only be true at one moment in time as clubs grow and clubs get smaller. Jan 22, 2020 at 18:46

The top four US college chess schools participate in the Final Four of College Chess. This year's (2015) participants were Webster University, the University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Tech University, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Especially, the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, have consistently had very good results in the Pan American Intercollegiate Team Chess Championship in the last ten to fifteen years.

You can find other college chess clubs at the site of the USCF.

  • Does that make them best? Jan 22, 2020 at 18:47
