Angelo State Adds San Antonio Recruiter
As part of its ongoing efforts to attract more students from along the I-35 corridor, Angelo State University has created a new full-time admissions counselor/minority recruiter position that will be based in San Antonio.
Nick Garcia, currently an admissions counselor in the ASU Admissions Office, will take on the new role in San Antonio starting April 7. His duties will include attending regional college fairs and other events in San Antonio and the surrounding areas to expose prospective students to the advantages of attending ASU. He will also engage in community service activities that will demonstrate Angelo State’s commitment to involvement within the San Antonio region.
“It is an honor to be the first regional representative for ASU,” Garcia said. “It is a great way to get more students from the San Antonio area. I think it is also important in our efforts to become a Hispanic Serving Institution.”
A native of Fort Stockton, Garcia has worked in the ASU Admissions office since obtaining his bachelor’s degree in communication from Angelo State in December. Prior to that, he was a student worker in the office for about a year and a half. As a student, he also made the Dean’s List and was involved in the Rambassador Program.
At his new posting, Garcia also plans to attend graduate school at either Incarnate Word or the University of Texas-San Antonio.
