I really like the town of Stephenville, Texas. If you adapt and are more comfortable in small towns, then Stephenville is just right for you! You definitely feel that small town atmosphere! Also, what I really like about this town is since this town is fairly small, everything from restaurants to businesses to grocery stores are relatively close to each other! There is also a University, Tarleton State University here, with a also a community college, Ranger College, as it is called, as well as a high school and jr high school and a few elementary schools. You can also find a church easily, and I really enjoy the town park beside the Bosque river where you could relax, go fishing, or take a nice little jog! Stephenville is most definitely the place to live for small town lovers!

I absolutely love it! Great small college town, that offers great opportunities to those who live here. Friendly people, real quiet during summers and picks up during the school year. Rodeo community, eat, live and breathe it down here!
I absolutely love Stephenville. I recently graduated with my bachelors degree from Tarleton State University, located in Stephenville, Texas. Due to being hired full-time with an entry level position, I had to temporarily transfer office locations for training purposes. After I am fully trained, my full intention is to move back to Stephenville and spend the rest of my life there.
