College-bound high school students can experience Tarleton State University’s main campus in Stephenville firsthand and catch a glimpse of what it means to “Bleed Purple” during the upcoming Texan Tour.

Sponsored by the Tarleton Welcome Center and Office of School Relations, Texan Tour takes place Saturday, March 25, with help from Texan Rep student members and countless faculty and staff.

Beginning with registration inside Wisdom Gym from 8 to 9:30 a.m., Texan Tour includes a full day of events, allowing campus visitors the chance to learn about Tarleton through conversations with current students and sessions with representatives from financial aid and scholarships, academic departments, undergraduate admissions, and residential living and learning.

To pre-register, go to www.tarleton.edu/welcome/texantour.

“Texan Tour is a perfect time for prospective students and their families to experience the spirit of Tarleton all in one day,” said Jana Holland, director of Tarleton’s Welcome Center and Office of School Relations.

Tarleton President F. Dominic Dottavio will welcome guests, and Texan Reps will conduct campus tours and answer questions from a student perspective. Visitors are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing, as events will crisscross the entire campus.

Participants can learn more about Tarleton’s degree programs at an academic fair, enjoy lunch at the Dining Hall and a get look at residence hall showrooms.

Later in the day, representatives from many of the university’s 100-plus student organizations host an information fair, and Tarleton faculty and staff will share insights on everything from recreational sports to academic advising.
