At Tarleton I learned a lot both academically and about myself as a person. College opens up so many doors to learn about life. The way Tarleton goes about its education and family like feel on campus just benefits its students in so many ways

    It is wonderful. It has small class sizes. 99% of the people there are super friendly and the professors actually care how you are doing in their classes.

    Tarleton is a very small school. In my experience, I have found that there isn't much to do here, However the school has decent academics.

    It's a good school, especially if you're looking for an agricultural degree. They try their best to be welcoming and helpful to their students and to have plenty of organizations and activities to get the students involve in. Unfortunately, they have a few more students than they can really handle and so things get a little messy and confused.

    If you are worried about being a number at a larger university, then have no fear Tarleton is a great college to transition to from high school. It's population of 10,000 students means smaller class sizes, better connections with professors, and more friends. With a high respect for tradition, here you can find pride in your school!

    Tarleton is a great place for students wanting to go to an affordable 4 year college. It's an hour away from Fort Worth. The campus is big enough to feel like college, but small enough to get help when you need it. If you like country dancing and country living then this school has that. The athletic programs here are pretty successful. They should be moving up to Division 1 AA sometime within the next couple of years. The school is growing, but the town can be boring. I'm from Burleson, TX which is close to Fort Worth and Arlington so I'm used to more a city atmosphere.
