The largest class of incoming freshman at Tarleton State University have arrived on campus and are attending an eight-day Texan Transition Week.

The event is packed full of activities welcoming students to campus including a street dance beginning at 8 p.m. Friday on McIlhaney Street.

Six Market Blvd. is coming back to where it all began.

Clayton Landau, Josh Serrato, Ben Hussey and Dallas Neal met at Tarleton and formed the Texas country band in 2008. Four years and thousands of shows later, they're coming back to campus to bring down the house before classes begin Monday.

Since 2008, the band has performed locally on many occasions including Larry Joe Taylor's line up of outdoor music festivals.

Also slated at Tarleton this weekend is the annual Purple and White football scrimmage. The scrimmage is the first glimpse students and the community get of the Texans and a tailgate party is planned. The Mike Stanley Band, another Stephenville-based outfit, will perform at the tailgate at 4 p.m.

The weekend weaves Tarleton pride and tradition with music from former students to help new students become familiar with the school's unique spirit.

Though there is a lot of fun going on across campus, incoming freshman are also participating in sessions such as Soberfest, a Career Conference and academic success programs.

Texan Transition Week ends with the Candle Lighting Ceremony, the university's official induction into the Tarleton family at 8 p.m. Sunday.
