If you want to go to this schoolBright
If you want to go to this school and you are older or mature, live off campus. rent a house because the apartment complexes are designed to attract partying teens who will make life hell at all hours of the night. the school mascots, the poo, tend to run around at all hours banging on signs and rattling gates just to act like idiots. for the most part, the classes are good with the exeption of a few professors who will bad mouth each other to the class and some who are obviously here for a job. some are really good and here for the love of teaching. for the most part, i would go to a different school if given the choice again.

Question
Tarleton State University is a great school, everyoneQuite Bright
Tarleton State University is a great school, everyone should atleast give it a chance. So many people say "this isn't for me," that just means that they never got involved and never got out of their dorm room. I know so many people who are "city people" and love it there, I was one of them. No there's not a mall but you can always find something to do and always remember to RUSH! That doesn't mean you have to join a fraternity/sorority but it doesn't hurt to take 3 hours a night for 3 days to get out there and meet your incoming students.The only bad things I will say about Tarleton is that the English Department for freshman english is horrible IF you have a graduate student. Try and avoid them. Also, there is a "secret organization" at Tarleton called the Purple Poo that everyone seems to want to be. Though I like the people in it, do not get yourself so sucked up into what they do because if they find out you're following them or talking about them they do what they can to make you feel like shit. Don't trust them and don't look at them because a handful of them are horrible people who do not represent what Tarleton State University is about; family and tradition hmmmmmmm KIM YAEGER!

Question
Tarleton State University really is a good university.Quite Bright
Tarleton State University really is a good university. I'm always dealing with math or computers, and the program is fantastic. Expect a good workload, but also expect the professors to let you have extra time to get work turned in. As long as you attend class and make a half-way effort, you'll do fine.
