From the School

Angelo State University aims to touch tomorrow in the lives of its students, in the growth of their communities, whether local or global, and in the pursuit of the common good of society. As a member of the Texas Tech University System, Angelo State offers strong academic programs in a highly personalized environment that provides expansive learning opportunities, including undergraduate research, in almost 100 majors and concentrations. The low student-faculty ratio (19/1) allows for an individualized educational experience. ASU graduates are sought by graduate and professional schools, such as law and medicine. ASU turns out graduates who can think critically, adapt to a changing world and succeed in various environments, whether in technology, business, the arts, the sciences or graduate/professional school.

Academically, the university is organized with six colleges – Business; Education; Liberal and Fine Arts; Nursing and Allied Health; Sciences; and Graduate Studies – as well as 21 academic departments. Those departments offer 40 undergraduate degrees, 23 graduate programs and one associate degree. ASU provides a distinctive educational experience in agriculture, nursing, educator preparation, biology and physics, which has been recognized by Physics Today as one of the top undergraduate programs in the nation. Students desiring a rigorous academic experience can apply to ASU's dynamic Honors Program while those desiring study abroad can participate in a growing International Studies Program that provides a more global experience while keeping costs within reach of the typical student.

ASU draws its almost 6,400 students from more than 220 of Texas' 254 counties as well as from 39 states and 20 countries. With more than half of its graduates as first generation college students, ASU is attuned to the needs academically and socially of a new generation of college students.

Angelo State offers programs in liberal arts, business, education, fine arts, and health professions with particular strength in the agriculture, nursing, educator preparation, biology and physics. The undergraduate physics program has been ranked No. 1 in the state by Physics Today. The Biology Department is a national leader in field biology, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. ASU’s Nursing Department is a national innovator in online education. ASU accounting graduates regularly produce the highest pass rate in Texas on the CPA exam while math graduates have maintained a 100 percent pass rate on the Texas Examination of Education standards teacher certification test for the past dozen years. In addition to strong academics, ASU provides a variety of support programs to help students succeed. Starting with Rambunctious Weekend, which welcomes students to campus each fall, ASU provides a strong first-year program to help students adjust to the rigors of college life. ASU’s Honors Program is a national award-winner while the Center for International Studies has initiated broader scholarship opportunities to help students enjoy study abroad at little cost beyond their regular tuition and fees.
A formidable player in the Texas Tech University System, Angelo State offers students a “very affordable” education coupled with a “wide range of degree programs.” Importantly, a “small-town feel” permeates the campus, and students are quick to assert that “you’re not just a number at Angelo.” While the university has a handful of great departments, undergrads here are especially quick to highlight the stellar biology, nursing, physical therapy, and music programs. Like many schools, the quality of professors can run the gamut. Fortunately, as one undergrad happily shares, the vast majority are “brilliant, energetic, and inspiring.” Indeed, they’re “enthusiastic about their subjects” and “genuinely care about their students.” And while they “have high success standards, [they] are also willing to do almost anything to help you meet those standards.” Another student elaborates, “Angelo State’s faculty is very dedicated to their students and to helping us grow. There is never a need to hesitate to ask a question, or to speak with a professor one on one for better understanding.” Finally, one extremely content student sums up the Angelo State experience with the confident assertion, “I feel like I am receiving the best education money can buy!”

In addition to Greek organizations, ASU groups include Air Force ROTC, Association of Mexican-American Students, Black Organization Striving for Success, Block and Bridle, College Republicans and Young Democrats as well as a variety of clubs centered around special interests or academic disciplines.

As a residential campus, Angelo State boasts an active intramural program which has sent multiple teams to regional and national championship competitions. Recreational activities revolve around the vibrant University Center and multiple workout facilities.

An active University Center Program Council brings to campus a variety of musical, comedy and cultural acts each semester. Intellectual activities include seven speaker series which have drawn to campus Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize and Oscar winners in addition to leaders and innovators in science, business and the arts.
When asked to describe their peers, the first adjective that leaps out of the mouths of Angelo State students is “friendly.” Indeed, most students “seem outgoing and involved in many different activities around school or in the community.” In addition, they’re “down-to-earth” and aim to “balance [their] social life with making good grades.” As one ecstatic student gushes, “I haven’t spoken with a student that has found a place where he/she has not felt welcome.” Indeed, we are assured, “To fit in, all you have to do is get involved in something—that way the different networks of friends are available to you and you get to know a lot of people.” Finally, it should be noted that the university also has a decent number of returning students, and most report a seamless transition. As one student shares, “Nontraditional students blend in quite well. I have a family and live off campus, but I feel very comfortable in the classroom and interacting with all students and professors.”

Angelo State University features a 268-acre campus in San Angelo, Texas. The campus is lined with native live oak and pecan trees plus imported palm trees, providing a park-like environment for students. In addition to being one of the prettiest campuses in the state, it is one of the safest. Additionally, ASU's Management, Instruction, and Research (MIR) Center, located just north of San Angelo, is an impressive 6,000-acre teaching facility that supports the university's extensive agricultural programs.

San Angelo is the center of a thriving community of 100,000, and the city nearest the geographic center of Texas. For some, San Angelo is the true heart of Texas. For others, it is where Central Texas and the Hill Country meet West Texas. Either way, it is a community of big-hearted and hard-working people who are proud of their Texas heritage.
Undergrads at Angelo State proudly proclaim that their campus is “always alive and buzzing.” The university sponsors a number of events that “range from movie marathons to Monopoly, Texas Hold’em, and Call of Duty tournaments.” One happy undergrad eagerly adds to the list, “On campus, there are many activities to get involved as for example, intramural sports, video games available in main lobbies at each dorm, a renovated…[rec center] with new equipment. There are also many events on campus sponsored by a student council and they bring comedians, singers, and other fun activities.” A fellow student interjects, “The combination of the brand new fitness center with the popular intramural activities has made this a very active campus, where physical education and team sports are very popular.” Hometown San Angelo is “relatively small” and “conservative.” However, “Plenty of good restaurants” are available along with bowling, shopping, and movies. Lastly, when students are itching to get away, they can easily explore all that Texas has to offer. As one eager undergrad elaborates, “The good news is that we are centrally located. Because we are only about three or four hours from Lubbock, San Antonio, Austin, or the DFW area, most students plan multiple trips to these areas throughout the semester.”
