Tarleton State University Reviews
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!
I love Tarleton State! There is always something going on! Free items are given away all the time and classes are very small and personal. We love to encourage and support our fellow peers whether it be in sports, clubs, or theater. We are a tight knit university and very friendly!
Tarleton is a very welcoming college straight from the start. You couldn’t ask for better people, from the students to the professors. Very rarely will you run into someone that is impolite. The campus is very nice. There are some rough professors that don’t teach very well but they are outnumbered by ones that you will have an easier time learning from. The campus has many organizations you can join, you will not get bored here. Also, the president and his wife are very involved in student life and never hesitates to carry a conversation! Highly recommend this school.
