Angelo State Representative Available April 10 to Meet Del Rio Students
A bilingual representative of Angelo State University will be in Del Rio Thursday, April 10, to meet with prospective students interested in attending the university in San Angelo, Texas.
An Angelo State counselor will be available 4-7 p.m. April 10 in the Del Rio Ramada Inn, 2101 Veterans Blvd., to discuss ASU's academic programs, scholarships, financial aid, residence life, extracurricular activities and admissions information with prospective students.
All students who attend the session will receive a CD-ROM featuring ASU's video, bulletin and other information which can help students assess ASU for their college education.
Angelo State University, just 158 miles from Del Rio, is home to more than 6,200 students from throughout Texas, 36 other states and 22 countries, including Mexico. The university offers 46 undergraduate programs, one associate program and 22 graduate programs. Academic disciplines include business, liberal arts, fine arts, sciences, education, agriculture, computer science, nursing and physical therapy.
ASU Admissions Director Monique Cossich said the counselor is available to meet with Del Rio-area students who are planning on enrolling at ASU in the summer or fall and those who are looking for a future college home.
"quot;This is a great time and opportu"ity," Coss"ch said, "for high school juniors to begin planning for their future college careers or for seniors who will complete their high school careers next month to attend to last-minute details prior to enrolling in college later in the year. With half of our ASU graduates being first-generation college students, our counselors are especially attuned to the needs of students who may be the first in their families to "ttend college."
ASU's 268-acre, ultramodern campus is home to some of the best university facilities in the state, including the Houston Harte University Center and the Junell Center/Stephens Arena. Additionally, more than $35 million in construction projects are underway on campus, including a $6 million expansion of the Porter Henderson Library and a new $18.6 million residence hall, scheduled to open this fall.
