What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Tarleton thinking that it was going to be just like every other university. That however is not the case. This school is amazing. It changes the way students look at their academics. It has changed the way I came into this university. I thought that Tarleton was going to be easy academically and that I was going to be able to pass the classes easily; just like high school. The professors here are amazing and would do almost anything to help struggling students succeed in their class. As long as the student shows up for class, puts forth the effort, and communicates well with the professors they will do as much as they can to help their students. The campus is beautiful and very well maintained. Tarleton has high standards for its faculty and staff, students, and campus. With my first semester under my belt and about to start my second, I can see how much Tarleton has improved not only me but my grades, leadership skills, communication skills, study habits, and my friends. This university has changed me for the better and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me here. I will forever cherish my decision to go here. The campus, staff, education, and people have made the beginning of my college experience here amazing, and I am so happy that I have been given the opportunity to be apart of the Texan family! To anyone reading this review: Tarleton loves every one of their students. We are not just a number in the thousands of students who go here. To them we are individuals and this university will do everything they can to help their students succeed. Good luck, and GO TEXANS!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Tarleton is a good school. We have plenty of options for activities and clubs, the staff is usually friendly and helpful, and the class sizes are small enough to where you have a personal relationship with your professors and you typically have them for more than one course. With our new president, with university it on its way to many great things. We moved to division 1 in athletics this past semester (fall 2019). Along with D1, each college and group is actively looking for new ways to recruit freshman, improve experiences, and expand knowledge. However, even with all of these advances into Tarleton’s future, our focus on tradition is stronger than ever. Tarleton’s entire foundation and image is based around our century long traditions. From raising the spirit of Oscar P, homecoming bonfires, purple pigs, and the purple poo, Tarleton is built on traditions. The students bond over sleepless nights full of drum banging, purple pancakes, and tailgates. On campus life is safe, fun, and enlightening. Being grouped with students within your own major allows for the students to grow with each other through study groups, study hours, dinners, and other bonding. By grouping students with like interests and majors, it allows for students to learn how to study and depend on one another rather than on their professors or the internet to navigate through college. Also, many courses offer student led study groups for the university’s most difficult courses. The religious culture around the university is extremely involved with students. They offer study groups, bible studies, free lunches, prayer groups, coffee, snacks, etc to students on campus daily. Stephenville offers plenty of opportunities for college students to work, volunteer, and intern across the city. They also host many events that keep the campus involved in the community. Overall, I feel like Tarleton is a very nice school to attend. It’s affordable, comfortable, safe, has great academics, offers many opportunities, and provides a small town feel to students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it! I transferred there from Weatherford College, and I still get that smaller class size feel where everyone can get to know each other, and the opportunity is there to learn and interact with the instructors and fellow classmates. Everyone there has always been helpful and courteous.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has a good amount of student size so small classes are good. Everyone was nice and helpful when doing the college tour. And a small town so easy to know everyone. They have a lot to offer for a lot of kids and it’s cool that the president lives on campus and their traditions look fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A smaller school but what it lacks in size it makes up for in every other way. The football games are a Saturday tradition, most of the class sizes are small, and the staff is so nice. The only large classes are the main four need by every degree and even than the teachers are amazing. I would definably recommend this college to anyone that wants a good college education but wants to meet people as well. There is a tradition that freshmen go through during their first week here that really gets you used to the campus and excited about the classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was extremely involved at Tarleton State University and loved every minute of my attendance there. While every school has it's qualms, TSU had a family vibe and I always felt comfortable there and that I belonged on campus. I think Tarleton is the best kept secret in Texas, and I hope to work there after I obtain my masters degree.
