Round Up at Tarleton
By Taite Read
Tarleton State University’s Round Up will return on Oct. 1 for its 25th year.
Round Up is a service project put on by students. It is a one-day event where the Tarleton students will give back to the Stephenville community.
Kayla Key, student director, is one of the many students on the leadership team in charge of Round Up.
Students sign up to participate in Round Up through TexanSync where there will be a sign-up sheet.
“Once you have filled out this form you are signed up to volunteer and will be grouped up with students, friends or your organization to give back to the community,” Key said.
Students will meet at Memorial Stadium at 9 a.m. on the day of the event. Shortly after, they will gather supplies needed for the day and head off to their designated job sites.
“Community members can sign up as a jobsite, where students will be sent out to their homes to perform various acts of service like yard work, washing windows and more,” Key said. “Community members can also become sponsors or even participate as a volunteer.”
Round Up is a way for students to become involved through Tarleton and give back to the community at the same time.
Sophomore Shallan Marcum enjoys being involved in Round Up.
“I love being involved in the service project because it has such a huge impact on our community, and after it’s all done, the smiles are everyone’s faces are priceless,” Marcum said.
