What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tarleton is a wonderful place to grow in your education! The Professors/Instructors truly do care about your education and they want you to succeed. Like every school nothing is perfect their on-campus housing is ridiculous and nobody is on the same page and there is no proper communication, but I am sure it will improve overtime! Overall, a solid 4 star rating goes out to Tarleton State University and their wonderful faculty and campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a school that I am proud to say I attend. I would encourage other s to check this school out for themselves or for their children. This school does not only cater to your average students (young), but to the unconventional students also (older).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tarleton State is by far one of the most friendliest campus i know. There is a club and organization for everyone, helping you find your place in college. They have so many options to help you pass your classes, and get involved in activities. It's an incredible safe campus with very polite and friendly people. You will love it here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a graduate student, I have been fortunate enough to experience another university in comparison to Tarleton. While this school seems to harbor a strong community for undergraduate students, it lacks much in the way of education opportunities. Community is important, however in retrospect education opportunities are what make careers. Faculty do not prioritize students and their opinions, while feedback has been attempted to be given to many of the teachers, most are too fearful of rocking the boat to assist in education. Throughout my time here I have been blinded to much important information and feel as though some of my classmates have more knowledge than the professors in the topics I was promised that I would get an education in. Now, nearly done with my degree I feel less confident than I did coming in, as professors in my department didn't involve me in research nor did they tell everyone about presentation opportunities, but rather the few students that they would prefer to work with. It is sad as I had made multiple attempts to get assistance and become involved in these opportunities with no avail. I honestly felt cheated by Tarleton, told they would give me an education in something they could not adequately teach.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is good at a very few things, like Nursing and agriculture. If you're coming here for any stem though, go somewhere else. The programs are bad, the networking to find jobs is bad, and to make up for being bad, they'll lie to you to try and tell you things are good. Honestly, you're better off somewhere else. The politics at this school are ridiculous and the school system is so disorganized. The students are usually nice and friendly and the environment is good, which is what you see people talking about. But if thats what you're looking for, go to a better party school. If you're looking for a good degree, go somewhere else.

A Small School with Big Spirit

At first glance, it is easy to dismiss Tarleton State based on size and location. Tarleton is a small school with roughly 12,000 students and it is located in the small Texas town of Stephenville, which fits every stereotype of a small southern town. However, once immersed in the culture of Tarleton, one begins to understand why the students and faculty have so much love for this school. The traditions may seem odd to outsiders, but at Tarleton State they are a way of life. A few pointers for people considering Tarleton state: NEVER walk on the grass or the seal ALWAYS get up early on Tuesday and hunt for Purple Poo signs ALWAYS participate in homecoming activities (beating the drum, snake dancing, midnight breakfast) and ALWAYS raise Oscar P whenever possible. To someone that is unfamiliar with our unique traditions, the tips stated above probably sound the gibberish, but to current students and alumni they are very important. Our school prides itself on student involvement and individual excellence and inclusion. There are many organizations, clubs, and teams to join on campus and class sizes are kept small to ensure that students receive the help and support that they need to achieve success. Overall, Tarleton is an amazing school and I would recommend attending this university to anyone seeking not only a university, but a home.

Tarleton is Decent

I come from a big city place (Austin, TX) and so I was use to diversity and exposure to different sexualities and stuff like that, so when coming to Tarleton is was kind of a culture shock. It took a while for me to find my place within the school but once I did I actually began to enjoy myself. Sure theres not as much stuff to do as like in Austin, but as long as you have your group of friends you guys will find something to do together. The campus isn't the best in the world, but you learn to love it and get use to it. I definitely miss it and my friends while I'm away and the price for the school is pretty worth it compared to the bigger name colleges.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very friendly and opening to new people. Mainly the students that have been at Tarleton for more than one year. My classmates do not judge people like in High school, no matter what you do or wear in the early morning classes we dread.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and give myself advice for transitioning into college it would be to study harder and not becoming lazy toward the end of the year. College is very different in how much work is due and the stress over studying for test, and also making time for other activites. If you are participating in someother community, working out everyday, or even having a social life, all this has to fit into a schedule from day to day. Becoming lazy as a High school senior only makes things worse and that much harder to have the "want to" in college. There are obviously parties and other activites that you're going to want to attend but you have to make time for that and also make good desicions. I believe studying harder and not becoming lazy would be the advice I would give myself if i could go back in time.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

One of the worst things about my school is the parking. They have a lot of construction going on right now becuase we are moving to Division-2 next year. Therefore they are creating bigger and more dorms as well as more parking places around campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not waste money eating out! Only cook for yourself, frozen meals are bad! Go to Tarleton State University out of high school. Major in english also, minor in education, not the other way around. Quite a few running tips because I run for the university currently.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is small, but big enough for things to clog up if everyone's intersts converge on one thing
