Tarleton State University Reviews
This a great institution! They offer classes on a variety of campuses in a variety of formats. I have succeeded at both online and in person classes. My only trouble is the cost. Although, it is lower than a private university, it is still expensive and college should be free for all who wish to attend.
They have a lot of online programs and the culture is decent. Lots of church groups if you're into that, and there are some good groups on campus. Most majors have a student organization attached. The Rodeo team is fantastic!
Everyone is welcome at Tarleton State University. From the moment you step onto campus, you feel at home. Everyone is very friendly and you always have people that will support you in your decisions and help you whenever you need it. Overall, Tarleton State University is an amazing university!
