The campus of Angelo State University is a diverse one, much more diverse than one would expect out of a city as isolated as San Angelo. San Angelo is mostly Mexican and white Americans, but ASU is a lot more diverse than the town. ASU has a great exchange student program, so at any time, there are students from at least ten different nationalities attending school at ASU. There are also a couple of colleges in South Korea that have a very good relationship with ASU, and students are exchanged all the time. There are plans to drastically increase the number of Korean exchange students.

Most students do not come from upperclass backgrounds, but there is representation from all socioeconomic areas. There are also organizations for students from every walk of life. There is a religious club for most denominations of Christianity, though none seem to be selective about their members. As of yet, there are no religious clubs for any other religions.

Gay Pride
Overall, ASU is made up of students who are moderate in their beliefs. There is not major political action for LGBT rights, but there is very little hate. There is one organization dedicated to LGBT, and that is HERO: Helping to Educate Regarding Orientation.
Political Activity
Political activity usually occurs within other organizations' events held on campus. There are not many clubs dedicated to politics, but religious organizations would lean right. Overall, there is a good mix of liberal and conservative, with most students being moderate.
Economic Status
Students from all socioeconomic backgrounds attend ASU, but one will find more middle-class students because of the reasonable tuition prices.
Most Common Religions
All denominations of Christianity
Minority Clubs on Campus
AMAS, or the Association of Mexican American Students, is a club promoting cultural awareness of the Mexican culture. There is no need to have Mexican heritage to join, just appreciation. BOSS, Black Organization Striving for Success, is the African American minority club that promotes awareness of racial issues. Their main events occur during Black History Month, but they are present throughout the year with awareness events.
