Established in 1899 by John Tarleton, an old Erath County pioneer, Tarleton State University has evolved from a private college to an accredited four-year University that is currently building highly successful undergraduate and graduate studies programs.
The spirit behind Tarleton is derived from its students, traditions, diversity, and student organizations. Spirit organizations such as the "Purple Poo" exemplify this every day. Tarleton has many organizations and clubs that fit your needs. Regardless of your intended major or the organization you plan to join, Duck Camp has something for YOU!
