Fall 2012 • Volume 5 • Number 3
The newly released fall 2012 issue of Angelo State University Magazine highlights many of the talented university employees who work in relative anonymity to help ensure that the ASU community can live, learn and work on a comfortable, modern and picturesque campus.
The latest edition also salutes and profiles this year’s ASU Alumni Association Homecoming honorees.
Additionally, the bonus features available only on Angelo State University Magazine online take a look at the concerted efforts that go into conducting ASU commencement ceremonies, and explore the question of life on other planets with this year’s distinguished science lecturer.
The “behind the scenes” features include “Grounds to Impress,” “Recipe for Success” and “Underground ASU,” which highlight the efforts of ASU groundskeepers, food service workers and Central Plant staff in keeping the campus looking great, the students eating well and the buildings feeling as comfortable as possible. Their work not only benefits the current campus community, but also helps recruit prospective students.
“Campus Superheroes” takes a look at the multiple roles of ASU’s academic department secretaries, who help keep their offices running smoothly and often act as counselors, friends and even surrogate parents to the students in their departments.
“Hard at Play” profiles ASU’s nationally recognized intramurals program and all the hard work done by the University Recreation staff to keep the huge and diverse program running smoothly.
“Connecting the Dots” highlights the quality and volume of work performed in the ASU Print Shop to produce the vibrant publications that aid in everything from recruiting students to classroom learning to keeping the campus informed.
The “Along the Mall” section highlights several aspects of the university, including the ongoing influence of ASU President Joseph C. Rallo in his new role as a vice chancellor for the Texas Tech University System, ASU’s two new vice presidents and new graphics of Dominic the Ram that will soon adorn official ASU clothing and other promotional materials.
Additionally, the magazine provides coverage of the events, people and sports activities that give ASU its rich character.
