Centennial Celebration

This year marks 100 years for Tarleton as a member of the Texas A&M system. In commemoration of the centennial, Tarleton will host a yearlong series of events honoring the history and traditions of Tarleton State University. Included in these events is the Pathways Student Research Symposium, an A&M system-wide student research event, which will be held on Tarleton’s Stephenville campus on November 2nd and 3rd. To see the latest in centennial news, check out the recent press releases with the category “centennial celebration” here.


Imposter Syndrome?

First described by psychologists Suzanne Imes, PhD, and Pauline Rose Clance, PhD, in the 1970s, impostor phenomenon occurs among high achievers who are unable to internalize and accept their success. They often attribute their accomplishments to luck rather than to ability, and fear that others will eventually unmask them as a fraud. (Source)

On Tuesday, March 7th, at 6 p.m., Tarleton will host Dr. Amy Aldridge Sanford for her talk, entitled “Nothing to do with Luck: Identifying and Overcoming Imposter Feelings.” Learn more about the event on the University calendar.
