The Grassburr has been the official yearbook of Tarleton State University since 1916. Every student is encouraged to pick up their Grassburr each year. Recently, the number of students picking up their copy has declined. The Office of Student Publications hopes to increase these numbers so that more students will take advantage of owning their own piece of Tarleton history.
James Dearth came to Tarleton in 1996 after leaving the University of Tulsa to marry his wife. In his time as a Texan he was able to snag 77 receptions for 992 yards and nine touchdowns, according to Tarleton Sports. Tarleton left the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in 1994 to join the Lonestar Conference (LSC) in Division II of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA). Until Dearth, Tarleton had yet to produce an NCAA All-American. Dearth was named to the NCAA Division II All-American team and received first team All-LSC South Division honors in both 1997 and 1998. In 1998, Dearth received the LSC Offensive Lineman of the Year award.

The owner, Sarah Miller, moved to Texas in 2016 to further pursue more rodeo and breeding opportunities. She found the property that the arena now sits on and fell in love with the location right away. From there, Wildwood was born. The facility was created to be a unique place for dreamers, ropers, breeders, barrel racers, and event goers alike. Miller made sure that everything was built with great detail and even more care.
“We are recommending that we increase the fee from $22 per semester credit hour to $35 per semester credit hour…We cap that at 13 semester credit hours, so if you take 15, 16, 17, 18 semester credit hours in any given semester you only pay 13 semester credit hours of the athletics fee…and that will not change,” Beaty said.
“I really don’t like it when students have an excuse,” Hinson said. “I’d rather them just to be honest. If you overslept, just say you overslept. Don’t tell me that your car died, the dog died or some other reason that just doesn’t sound plausible. Just be honest. If you miss class, I’d rather just know that you were tired that day and didn’t want to come to class, rather than you had to do something else.”
Every other Friday morning a group of students meet at the bandstand in Heritage Park to pray together.
