Fall 2010 ASU Magazine
The newly released fall 2010 issue of Angelo State University Magazine looks back on the drama and excitement of the ASU Rambelles’ national track and field championship, chronicles the efforts of the university to “go green” and delves into why ASU produces more football coaches than any other school in Texas.
Additionally, the fall issue profiles this year’s award winners for the ASU Alumni Association.
The cover story gives readers a “track-side” account of how the Rambelles track and field team overcame adversity and stiff competition to win the program’s first national championship. It also looks at how the Rams battled to achieve their goal of finishing in the top 10.
“Blue and Gold and Green” takes in in-depth look at steps the university has taken to minimize the campus’ carbon footprint – and save money in the process.
“Exes and O’s” tackles the question of why ASU continues to lead the state in producing football coaches, some of them among the most successful in Texas.
As in each fall issue, the magazine also includes profiles of the ASU Alumni Association’s Homecoming honorees. They include former students and faculty, current faculty and friends of the university.
Also in the alumni section, “Fantasy Fulfilled” profiles ASU alumna Lucy Snyder, who recently won a Bram Stoker Award, the highest honor bestowed by the international Horror Writers Association. Not bad for a biology major!
The magazine’s Along the Mall section highlights the university’s two newest vice presidents, along with Jeff Harris, last year’s ASU student body president and the first ASU student regent on the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents. It also takes in introductory look at the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) process and recaps the winners of last spring’s President’s Awards for Faculty Excellence.
Additionally, the Briefs section details the university’s inclusion in the Princeton Review and other “best colleges” lists, the new director for the Center for Security Studies, the opening of the new WED Center and a regional award for a biology student group.
In the Angelo Staters section, a summary is available of the many honors bestowed upon ASU faculty, staff and students over the spring semester. Updates on ASU athletics are featured in the latter portion of the magazine, including previews of the fall football, volleyball and soccer seasons.
