Go to Duck Camp so you can make friends before the school year starts, get involved with on campus activities, and just have fun, but do keep up with your studies and don't procrastinate!
Laura from Dallas, TX
If you plan on attending Tarleton and living on campus you are going to be required to purchase a meal plan. You may think you're going to eat three times a day in the dining hall, but trust me, you don't have time to do so. I'm on the 10 meals per week plan and I have never used all of them in one week. It's cheaper to just get the 10 meal plan and some ramen for your dorm room for those days you miss dinner.
Anna from Mesquite, TX
When you get here, don't stress out! Find friends, get involved, and everything will go smoothly from there.
Ashley from Killeen, TX
Tarleton State really is Texas' best kept secret. Getting involved is the best way to meet people. So, go to Duck Camp! Its a big help when you first get to school because you'll at least know some people. Joining groups help you get socialized as well. Whether you want to go Greek, join Freshman Representative Council or Student Programming Association, just do it. At least you can say you tried it out.
Brianna from Stephenville, TX
be involved in as many groups as you can handle with your schedule and do not forget to start studying early. waiting until the last minute is not a good way to start.
Airika from Arlington, TX
if you are interested (which you should be) then go on a Texan Tour. it is much better than the regular tours and you get a better experience. it is led by actual tarleton students who have a huge love for the university. you wont regret it and i DARE you to not immediately feel at hom here.
Megan from Aledo, TX
The best tip I could give anyone is to apply and come visit. As soon as you step on campus I know you will feel at home, it's just a matter of giving the school a chance. You will automatically be greeted with smiles and any questions you have will be answered thoroughly. You couldn't ask for a better school.
Brianna from Temple, TX
The places/dorms I recommend to stay in are Legends, Centennial, Texan Village, New Dorm, and traditions. Those places are the best. Traditions is not as great as the others but its A LOT better than Bender and Ferguson. If you stay in Legends or the New Dorm its like a 5 star hotel with 5 star security for your door.
Jamilla from Cedar Hill, TX
Visit every college brochures can make some colleges appear to be perfect when in reality they have A LOT of flaws.
