I love the small town feel of Stephenville especially coming from a rural area! It's one of the reasons I chose to attend Tarleton State. However, there are certain advantages that college students in urban areas have over us. For example, big city college kids have more opportunity when it comes to finding internships in their career area!

Stephenville has many pros and very few cons. First off we have a well college called Tarleton State University. TSU brings many students and diversity into Stephenville. Stephenville ISD truly cares about their students, academics, sports and fine arts. There is a lot of housing and apartments that is affordable to just about anybody. Many jobs are available here from factories to schools to small businesses. Family is held up very high over here. Nightlife over here is alright. There are concerts held here just about every other weekend. I think Stephenville should invest in more entertainment for visitors.
Stephenville is a close knit small town. Everyone has that generous Texan charm. It is a fantastic place for rodeo and education! Tarleton and Stephenville school districts are definitely ones you can make connections and have genuine education.
