Diversity: ASU is very diverse. This provides you to meet a lot of different people and interact with them. You start learning different things about other economic backgrounds etc.

Diversity: This is the most racially diverse school I have been to. Growing up in a small town in Maine, I hadn't been subjected to this very much. But it doesn't bother me of course. The economic background varies. Some people have money, and it is obvious. Some people don't but they get the financial help they deserve. The school really worked with me the first year I was there to get the finances I needed. Not so much after that. Political beliefs and religious backgrounds are pretty standard for the school's spot in the Bible Belt. I never quite fit in with these, and don't often give my opinion on the subjects because I will hear a lot about it. But almost everyone there are republican conservatives and Christian. I don't mind, I just don't like having other peoples beliefs shoved down my throat. I'm more of a conversationalist. As for sexual orientation, given it's position in the Bible Belt, most people are straight. I have met quite a few who are very against my homosexual friends, but I will always stand up for them. But, that being said, most people I know there who are gay or bi don't often flaunt it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
