Tarleton State is offering seven (7) Texan Orientation conferences in 2013. These orientations provide new students and their families an opportunity to become acquainted with the Tarleton experience. The conferences introduce students to their new academic and social environment. Students have the opportunity to interact with Tarleton faculty and staff and enroll in their first semester courses. There is no cost for the student, however, guests must register and pay a small fee. For more information, please visit the Texan Orientation website.
