ASU Magazine Summer 2013

Summer 2013 • Vol. 6 • No. 2

The newly released summer 2013 issue of Angelo State University Magazine examines the ASU experience in the great outdoors, ranging from research to recreation to campus tours. After all, much goes on outside the classroom.

In “The Great Outdoors” cover section, readers will get an in-depth look at several ASU programs that get students and/or the public outside for various activities, including the pediatric nursing rotation, campus tours, telescope viewings and outdoor adventures through University Recreation.

In the Features section, “Spider Mania” tells how students from ASU and other schools get up close and personal with various creepy crawlies in the “Biology of the Arachnids” course taught by Dr. Ned Strenth of the ASU biology faculty at the Texas Tech University campus in Junction.

“Livestock Lessons” highlights the livestock production efforts at the ASU Ranch that are central to all ASU agriculture degree programs, from ranching to resource management to even banking.

In addition to its livestock operation, the ASU Ranch is also home to all types of wildlife, both flora and fauna. “Ranch Gone Wild,” takes a closer look at the range and wildlife management efforts of ranch faculty, staff and students to preserve, protect and promote the ranch’s wild populations.

“H2Oooooh,” gives an in-depth analysis of the research being done by Dr. Gary Pumphrey of the ASU geology faculty on the Ogallala Aquifer and the vital role it plays in the High Plains region of the U.S.

The magazine’s Along the Mall section highlights several aspects of the university, including how ASU is an attractive college choice for home-schooled students, a dramatic presentation for ASU’s Civil War Lecture Series, and an ASU expert’s analysis of how the North Korean media was duped by The Onion.

Additionally, the magazine provides coverage of the events, people and sports activities that give ASU its rich character.
