    Window to the World

    As Angelo State’s faculty and student body become more globally diverse, so does the research produced in many of its academic departments.

The newly released spring 2013 issue of Angelo State University Magazine profiles Dr. Brian J. May, the first ASU alumnus to be named president of the institution.

The latest edition also highlights several university “collections” and the ongoing efforts to maintain and improve them for current and future generations of ASU students, faculty and staff, as well as the West Texas and even worldwide communities.

In the cover story, readers will get an in-depth look at the new ASU president and see how an agriculture student from the Texas panhandle rose through the ranks to become just the fifth president of Angelo State.

“Spanning the Globe” takes a look at how the curators of the Angelo State Natural History Collections are utilizing a grant from the National Science Foundation to update and improve the collections, and make them available to scientists around the world.

“Going Digital” takes readers into the ASU library and highlights the efforts being made to store and preserve the massive amounts of available information while also trying to keep up with the digital times.

“The Good, the Bad and the Maybe” takes a closer look at ASU’s West Texas Collection and how it plays an important role in preserving the history of the region.

“Person to Person” profiles both the efforts of the university’s admissions counselors and the obstacles they face as they traverse the state recruiting students to attend ASU.

The magazine’s Along the Mall section highlights several aspects of the university, including a campus visit by Gov. Rick Perry, the recent increase in international students, an important homeland security conference and the dramatic growth of two of ASU’s newer academic programs.

Additionally, the magazine provides coverage of the events, people and sports activities that give ASU its rich character.
