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.

Tarleton State University I feel is a greatBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Tarleton State University I feel is a great university. I came here as a freshman slightly worried about the size of the town (comming from the DFW area). After almost a week of being here i realized this town has plenty to do and lots of fun. The students are friendly and have lots of fun, do be careful as there are alot of parties to go to so make sure you pick and choose wisely. Although Tarleton has a rep of being a cowboy school and only hicks come here that is not the case at all. year after year this school becomes more urbanized, thanks to our new president Dr D. Its making great changes and constantly updating facilities, every year I have been here there is a new building being built that is state of the art. Our football team is extremly competitive as well as our basketball teams. By 2015 the projected student count is supposed to be roughly 15,000. We are soon updating our stadium and BBall court hopefully large enough to become a D IAA school and move conferences to SFA and Sam Houston. I would recomend any person to come here. It is a great education at a great price. I have made life long friends and the campus is expanding quickly at a very positive rate.
