Tarleton State is the best kept secret in Texas. Don't stray away from this school because there is nothing to do within the town. Traditions here are great and I am extremely grateful to have chosen such a school.
Tarleton State University is a well rounded 4 year university. It offers an experience that most other Colleges cannot. tarletons most unique feature is the fact that it is in the middle of a small cowboy run town.
