Light and Legacy

With the origin of Angelo State University, our university seal was born. A lamp of enlightenment is the centerpiece of the seal. Above it in a ribbon are our motto, Fiat Lux, which is Latin for “Let there be light,” and our founding year, 1928.

Ninety years ago, San Angelo ignited the flame of enlightenment, and Angelo State University now stands proudly with academic strength and physical presence.

We have earned a place in The Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” each year since 2010. This year, we were recognized as a “College of Distinction.” For four years straight, we have earned placement on the Honor Roll of “Great Colleges to Work For” as listed by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The individuals and families behind these accomplishments are many in number and mighty in their support.

As we move toward our 100th anniversary, we find more and more Angelo State legacy families where one generation has passed the torch to the next in commitment and passion for the Ram Family.

This year, we pay tribute to all those who make “blue and gold” a family tradition and inspire others to become part of the Ram Family.

You have kept the light burning brightly, and we challenge everyone to ignite the light and inspire a blue and gold legacy for the next 90 years.
