Student Media


Students lead Tarleton’s historic publications

Students produce two publications for Tarleton State University through the Student Media department: JTAC News and the Grassburr. Through these experiences, students learn communication skills, time management, photography, graphic design, leadership, sales, and more.

With the hard work of student editorials teams and contributors, these publications serve as the official record keepers for the university. The Grassburr was first published in 1916 and The J-TAC was first published in 1919.

Student staff work in The Source, the university’s on-site copy and print shop designed to conveniently assist students, student organizations, faculty, staff, and departments with their printing and copying needs.
