ASU Magazine Spring 2014

The newly released spring 2014 issue of Angelo State University Magazine explores the growing global diversity of the university’s student body and faculty with a focus on the personal stories of those with international connections.

In the cover story, readers will get an in-depth look at how the university’s international student population is increasing, particularly through the efforts of Dr. Won-Jae Lee, who has spearheaded the effort to bring in a growing contingent of South Korean students.

“Global Outreach” examines the recruiting efforts of staffers in ASU’s Center for International Studies, which plays a major role in bringing more students to the university from countries throughout the world.

The “As the Faculty World Turns” section includes profiles of several of the university’s international faculty members, all with distinctive stories to tell about how they arrived at Angelo State.

In the “As the Student World Turns” section, students from four different continents are profiled with a particular emphasis on why they chose to attend ASU and their adjustments to life in the U.S.

The magazine’s Along the Mall section highlights several aspects of the university, including an alumni opinion piece, state and national rankings for various university departments and degree programs, and the announced retirement of Texas Tech University System Chancellor Kent Hance. Also highlighted are the new Veterans Educational and Transitional Services (VETS) Center and the growth of the university’s online education programs.

Profiles of several international student-athletes are included in the Athletics section of the magazine, while the Alumni section introduces readers to two alumni with strong ties to ASU’s international student population.

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