Tarleton Freshman Survival Guide

College Survival-01

  • Don’t sit in your dorm room & binge watch Netflix, get out & meet people!
  • Use the “I’m a freshman” excuse while you can.
  • The freshman 15 is almost inevitable. Be cautious & make healthy decisions.
  • There is some kind of free food on or near campus almost every day, take advantage of it! You’ll be ballin on a budget the next four years.
  • Get involved! (I cannot stress this enough) Greek life, TTM, SGA, CFFA… just do something!!
  • On Thursday’s we wear purple. Don’t forget that.
  • Don’t go home every weekend. Just don’t be that guy.
  • Lida’s is one of the best kept secrets in town.
  • D-hall will be your saving grace some days. Learn to enjoy//tolerate it.
  • Don’t try to figure out who the poo are.
  • Basketball games are some of the greatest times.
  • Football tailgates are pretty dope too. But not very many people actually go into the games. We need to change that!
  • Don’t black smoke your lifted truck driving down Washington. Or anywhere in town for that matter.
  • Go to every single homecoming event no matter how tired you are.
  • Don’t walk on the freaking grass.
  • Sign up for GOOD 2 C U coupon texts. Just text “Jackets” to 95599 & also “PurplePoo” to 95599.
  • Most importantly, respect tradition.
