Adjustment Made Easier
With Personal Attention
From the very ' moment tho
Tarleton freshman arrives on cam-
pus he begins to grow. New 'in-
terests, new knowledge and a feel-
ing of independence and self-con-
Jldence begin to change his life.
But there is a great gap bet-
ween high school and college and
for that reason the faculty and
staff at Tarleton State are avail-
able for counseling and advice. It
ia this personal attention to the
student's needs that has won
, praise for the college. The pro-
ifeesor at Tarleton does not forget
about his students as soon as he
leaves the classroom. He knows
- that the weaker student will need
extra help and the strong student
will need additional problems to
keep his interest high.

the time to give this personal at-
tention to each student. At Tar-
leton they take the time and the

Many students come to college
without knowing how to study.
This is a problem that counseling
will help. Many students come to
college with an insufficient back-
ground in one or two coura8B. This
is another problem that counsel-
ing will help.
And there is another type of
counseling and guidance that
many students need. It concerns
problems of a more personal na-
ture and students will find a
■sympathetic and understanding-
staff or faculty member they can
talk to when the going is tough.
To paraphrase the industrial
slogan, "Education is our most im-
portant product," but the personal
attention to the students' needs
and the expert counseling' by the
staff often make that important

Quality 4-Year Program
Planned for Tarleton
As Liberal Arts College
When the gates of Tarleton
State College open Sept. 12, 1960,
will begin what" promises to be one
of the brightest and most exciting
years in the history of the college.
In the words of Dr. E, J. Howell,
president of Tarleton since 1948,
"The growth of' the college and
To offer quality education at a
price the average Texas family
can afford has been the aim of
Tarleton State College since it be-
came a fully state supported, co-
educational college in 1917.
The fact that TSC is state-sup-
ported is not the only reason why
the parents of college age children,
who must be cost-conscious when
selecting a college, can find the
answer to their problems at TSC.
For years the college adminis-
tration has made every effort to
minimize the "fringe expenses"
that normally accrue even in a
state college. But the TSC adminis-
tration has not minimized the ac-
tivities, only the cost.
At Tarleton, tutition costs are
low. Room rent in the women's
dormitory averages $12 per month
and the total cost of room and
board for the coed averages $55
For men, the dining hall costs
are the same, approximately $45
per month and the dormitory room
rent is slightly less than for coeds.
Job opportunities are also avail-
able on the campus and in the
city of Stephenville. However, stu-
dents considering outside employ-
ment are urged to talk to their
counselor before taking jobs,
TSC is not in business to make
money. It has been established by
the state as another link in a sys-
tem to provide the best education
possible for Texas youth at the
lowest possible cost.

correct their mistakes early in college. At TSC the faculty mem-
bers take time to discuss important class problems with the stu-

help him improve.
the role it will play in the Texas
higher education systerii will reach
a critical stage in the year ahead.
Since the spring of 1959 when
TSC received permission to enlarge
its curricula and expand its pro-
gram to include four - year work,
the faculty and staff have endeav-
ored to establish a program which
will be sufficient, not only to satis-
fy degree requirements, but to
maintain the high academic stand-
ards which already exist. We feel
we have such a program."
The program, which was ap-
proved recently by the Texas A&M
Board of Directors, will be sub-
mitted to the Texas Commission
on Higher Education for approval
The new four-year plan would
offer degrees in biological sciences,
business administration, English
and languages, mathematics, chem-
istry, history, economics, govern-
ment and physics,
Studelits majoring in biological
science would be able to slant their
program toward plant science or

A bachelor of arts degree in
English has been approved along
with degree programs in Spanish
and French as the college admin-
istration sees fit to add them.
Courses in speech, journalism^ and
Latin would also be included un-
der the English department.
A bachelor of science or bache
lor of arts would be offered in
mathematics. Courses in drawing,
surveying and mechanics would
be offered on a freshman and
sophomore basis only.
Under the department of physi-
cal sciences a bachelor of science
degree could be awarded to majors
in chemistry. Approval for a major

Maybe it's because of the beau-

sprawling lawns and giant oak
trees . . or maybe it's because of
the relaxed and informal attitude
of everyone there that causes stu-

Whatever the reason, Tarleton
