Tarleton is a good value for the money. I was more of a commuter students, so I didn't spend a ton of time on campus at sporting events or other activities. I found my professors to be open and helpful; the classes were good and prepared me for my current professional career. Overall, Tarleton is a great school.

This University would seem small by first inspection, but it has grown very large in a short time. There are several great bars and alot of new housing for students. Education, Agriculture, Nursing, and Psychology are top programs to look at here. Tuition is relatively low, but rent is high. Overall a great University...I have two degrees from Tarleton.
