STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Families of Tarleton State University students are invited to a series of Family Nights — Oct. 3 and Oct. 24 — featuring events on campus and in the Stephenville community.

Attendance at each Tarleton Family Night is limited to 600, including family members and students. Registration is required, and each session will be filled on a first-come-first served basis.

Attendees may design their own weekend adventure, choosing from concerts featuring Taylor Branch and the Lone Star Ramblers, a Texans’ exhibition volleyball game, kids’ train rides, bingo, create-a-critter kits, and movies at the university planetarium and on the lawn at the O.A. Grant amphitheater.

Additionally, Rally on Rudder will feature student spirit groups and a special welcome from Tarleton President James Hurley.

Most events take place at outdoor venues across campus. All events, set from 1 to 10:30 p.m. each Saturday, are free.
