placeholder for testimonial
The Ag Comm department at Tarleton prepared me for my career in ways I did not fully understand during my time in Stephenville, but am so thankful for now. I firmly believe that I would not be where I am today without the block program specifically. It gave me a taste of real life and provided me with the direction and support I needed from my Tarleton mentors. It made me stop and think about what I was experiencing during my internship. It forced me to evaluate how everything I had learned during my time at TSU related to what my superiors now expected of me at work. I am so thankful for my time as an AS&D major and wouldn’t change a thing about the education provided to me by Tarleton State University.
