1. Student Government Association
The Student Government Association is the official organization representing students. Students may identify with off-campus programs and activities as individuals, but not as representatives of the University.
2. Student Media
The major campus publication at Angelo State University is the RAM PAGE, a weekly newspaper containing articles of interest to the University community. General supervision for the University’s student campus publication rests with the Publications Council, which is responsible for ensuring that the publication maintains high professional standards and fulfills the educational objectives for which it has been established. The ten-member council is made up of students, faculty, and staff. One of the chief responsibilities of the council is to appoint the editor each spring for the campus publication, based upon recommendations submitted by the chair of the Publications Council.
Copies of the University publications policies are available in the offices of the chair of the Department of Communication and Mass Media, who serves as Director of Publications, and the Director of Student Life. See University Operating Policy 04.10, Student Media.
Students preparing for careers in the media industry, train as videographers, editors and on-air personalities by producing content for the Campus Television and Radio stations. RAM TV and RAM RADIO highlight aspects of Angelo State University to the San Angelo Community and beyond.
Ram TV features live productions, symposia, lectureships, administrative forums, performing arts, athletics, exhibitions of student work, and events sponsored by departments on campus as well as local human-interest stores and public service announcements for non-profit organizations in San Angelo. This material is broadcast on the University educational access channel and the San Angelo local FOX affiliate, KIDY.
