Content Submission Rules and Guidelines:

Tarleton State University wants you to submit your videos, photos, and quotations that represent your Tarleton State University story, including choice memories, why you are proud to be a Tarleton Texan, and acknowledgement of your favorite student, faculty or staff member. This content, if approved, will be displayed for public viewing in the Tarleton FOCUS section of the homepage. Please read the following rules and guidelines before proceeding to the submission page.

  1. Content can be submitted by students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and anyone else who has a relationship with Tarleton.
  2. Content should generally be about Tarleton, such as in the areas of student life, academics, events, traditions, athletics, campus, alumni, faculty, staff, or anything else related to Tarleton that would be interesting for people to see or read.
  3. All materials (videos, photos, or stories) should only be informative and/or entertaining, and not promotional in tone (no photographer watermarks).  Also, please make sure your submissions contain only good, clean, and fun material.  While we encourage creative, offbeat, and inventive content, if you would not share this at a family gathering, you probably should not submit.
