This is a very small town.BrightPsychology
This is a very small town. If you dont like small towns this isnt the university for you. I love it here and there may not be many things to do in the surrounding town but this place makes you feel like family. Tradition is a major theme on this campus so if you plan on not being respectful to those go to a different university.

Question
Tarleton State is not a bad school butQuite BrightOther
Tarleton State is not a bad school but it does have it's cons and pros. I knew what I was getting into when I came to Tarleton ( rednecks, no city, no clubs, not that much fast food, etc), but I just came here to get my education.

Pros: You are not number, some teachers are friendly and do want to help you, the cost is cheap compare to other schools, and the Purple poo. Majority of students stay on campus for their 4 years here. The school's population is not that big. Cons: Parking is horrible( depending on where you stay), the social life here is non-existence at times, especially during the weekends. We do have some bars and one main dance club, but that's about it. The students here are ignorant at times, maybe because they are not used to anything besides their small town or country stuff. From what I seen the Greeks do not do much on and around campus.

Question
I already have one degree and was toldQuite BrightNursing
I already have one degree and was told to try Tarleton for my Masters. I have been here one semester and this has been by far the worst college experience I have ever had. I have transferred out of this university to a new one. The teachers here are not helpful unless you are their favorite. if I had he chance to do this semester again but at a different school I so would.
