Tarleton Traditions for the first time student

Tarleton State University is home to many traditions. Some dating back to the beginning of John Tarleton Agriculture College, and some that goes on year-round. With so many Traditions on our campus, it can be overwhelming to remember them all and how each of them works. Fortunately, this article will explain the importance of our Traditions while laying out the do’s and don’ts.

There are a lot of Traditions mentioned, and there are still more to learn. Fortunately, there is a Purple Book that contains all you need to know about Tarleton Traditions. Located on the main web page, the Purple book is easy to access and can be stored on any of your devices. Feel free to consult it at any time to learn more about Traditions.
