Chamber, ASU Student Government Initiate Discount Program
Angelo State University’s Student Government Association (SGA) and the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to set up a discount program for ASU students with local businesses.
Seth Chomout, ASU Student Government president, has asked local businesses in an open letter to join the program, which begins Friday, April 10, and is designed to mutually benefit the students and businesses.
According to a statement on the SGA Web page, “The goal of the discount program is to incorporate the business community of San Angelo into the ASU campus. With the help of the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, this program will not only give students discounts, it will also stimulate the San Angelo economy by bringing more students to local businesses.”
The Web page also states that participating businesses will be promoted in advertisements around campus and on the ASU Web site.
Chomout said students will be notified about the program and encouraged to do business with the companies that participate. Students will be able to access discounts by using their ASU One Card, which serves as a student ID. Businesses will also be provided with ASU logos to display in their storefronts.
Chomout stated in his letter that businesses will bear no cost other than the discounts they offer to students.
Businesses may sign up for the program online at www.angelo.edu/studentdiscount. For more information about the program, contact the SGA office at 942-2063.
