STEPHENVILLE (November 13, 2014) — The public is invited to visit Tarleton State University on Thursday, Nov. 20, from 3 to 5 p.m. and learn why so many students are proud to call the campus their “home-away-from-home.”

President F. Dominic Dottavio welcomes area residents to the University Community Open House, which will showcase the many facilities on campus that have undergone recent renovations and expansions including: the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center, Dick Smith Library and Learning Commons, O.A. Grant Humanities Building, Tarleton Center and the College of Graduate Studies.

In addition to tours of the academic and student service facilities, the university and the Stephenville Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon cutting at 3:30 p.m. to celebrate the recent completion and opening of Heritage Hall, Tarleton’s newest 512-bed residential living-learning facility just north of the Barry B. Thompson Student Center.

During the open house, guests will have the opportunity to informally tour the upgraded facilities and visit with faculty, staff and students who study and work in the various academic departments across the Tarleton campus.

Visitors are encouraged to park in lot P-27, just west of the Thompson Student Center, located at the corner of Lillian and Jones streets. From there, guests are invited to roam the campus and tour the buildings at their own leisure, and enjoy light refreshments at each facility.

The Tarleton Ambassadors will be on hand at each building and the visitors’ parking lot to distribute maps to aid guests in navigating the campus. The university’s inner-campus shuttle service also will be available for visitors.
