Tarleton State University Reviews
Review Tarleton State University
I liked the community feel, but there is literally nothing to do outside of school. A lot of people like to party because all there is to do here is get drunk in a pasture somewhere. Many of my professors don't know how to teach properly or just don't care. Also dealing with the financial aid office is horrible. Every time I go into the office I have to wait forever and then they are very rude and not very willing to help. Also, dining hall food is not very good and there is hardly anywhere to eat off campus. I lived in Hunewell and the alarm went off about 7 times in the middle of the night this year and people still smoke weed in the building. Don't go here unless you want a small school with a bunch of drunk rednecks and professors who don't care. I will be transferring. P.S. Good luck to the education majors who have to take earth science with Carol Thompson!
Tarleton State University has its positives and negatives just like any other school. It is great because the campus is small and not as expensive as most universities. The school has many options for majors and it has many student organizations. The downside for me is that it is in a small town, I grew up in the suburbs/city so I am not used to small town life and I had trouble adjusting. Also the school has limited parking like many other universities and it is hard being a commuter to the school. If you want a university in a small town then this school is perfect for you! Although I struggled, the academics are great and most professors will work with you and care. There are some bad professors but you just have to ask around to get the good ones. The school is growing and there are many new dorms so you will be living in great facilities. Overall the school is great just wish the town wasn't so small.
My experience with Tarleton has been the best experience as a freshmen. Being here for a short time, I have found my second family. It truly has the most caring professors who encourage us as well as makes an effort to get to know the students. You don't meet a stranger at Tarleton! The traditions that are still carried on here at Tarleton help the students get involved and makes us feel more like s family. My dorm is larger than I've ever seen in a dorm. I couldn't ask for anything better! I love my life in Stephenville and I love Tarleton!
