Student Engagement

We're glad you chose to come to Tarleton! We want to make sure you stay here and, ultimately, graduate. Transition Week will present you with the tools you need to succeed in and out of the classroom. You will kick the week off by learning about Tarleton's six core values that guide the university and throughout the week will discover ways to stay engaged during your college career.

Other activities designed to help jump-start your success include:

Civility Conference

Being on your own for the first time can be exciting, but it can also be detrimental if your not prepared for the obstacles that may arise. The Civility Conference will cover topics such as the dangers of "Thirsty Thursday," conflict management, living in a community, safe sex and protecting yourself.
