ASU Magazine Debut
The inaugural issue of Angelo State University Magazine is now available online on the ASU Web site.
Debuting in January, the printed version of the new magazine was distributed to all ASU alumni, friends and supporters with current addresses on file with the university.
In addition to all the stories covered in the Spring 2008 debut edition of the ASU Magazine, bonus features are available in the electronic edition online at http://www.angelo.edu/ASUMagazine/
Angelo State President Joseph C. Rallo said, “Angelo State University Magazine speaks not only to who we are but also who we aspire to be as a university. The magazine will serve as a window into the soul of Angelo State by highlighting the people, programs, accomplishments and activities that touch tomorrow in the lives of so many.”
The inaugural 2008 spring edition of the magazine examines the theme of “ASU’s Footprint on the World” by looking at the university’s international programs and their impact on students, professors and families.
Bonus features accompanying the Web version of the magazine include “There and Back Again,” a feature on Russian exchange student Irina Reshetnikova, and “Where Are They Now?” with an update on the whereabouts of some of our international alumni, who participated in ASU’s Host Family Program.
ASU Magazine is produced by staff of the Office of Communications and Marketing. The striking design is the result of work by Michael Martin, director of graphics. The eye-catching photography is by Danny Meyer with assistance from Tina Doyle.
Writers for the magazine are Tom Nurre Jr., Dave Wester, Ronn Rowland and Lynsey Flage. Leonor Constancio serves as design and copy editing assistant. Preston Lewis is editor.
The new magazine Web site also includes back issues of the Alumni Magazine after its production was assumed by the Office of Communications and Marketing in 2006. The back issues are accessible from the “Magazine Archives” link. Angelo State University Magazine replaces the Alumni Magazine.
ASU Magazine will be published three times a year in January, May and September.
The editorial goals of the magazine are to provide striking visuals and design, imaginative photography, and entertaining, journalistically sound writing to reflect the university’s reach and influence.
“This is a magazine,” said Rallo, “that anyone associated with ASU will be able to read with pride. Just as importantly, it is a magazine that will reflect the strengths of our people and the vision of our university for those who may not be familiar with ASU.”
