About Angelo State University, Texas, USA

Angelo State University is a public, coeducational, doctoral-level, degree-granting university located in San Angelo, Texas, United States. It was founded in 1928 as San Angelo College. It gained university status and awarded its first baccalaureate degrees in 1967 and graduate degrees in 1969, the same year it took on its current name. It offers over 100 undergraduate programs and 34 graduate programs. It is the second largest campus in the Texas Tech University System.

Angelo State was named one of "The Best 380 Colleges" in 2016 by The Princeton Review. It was one of five public universities in the state of Texas to make the list.

The history of the university can be traced to 1928 when San Angelo College was established following a municipal election held in 1926. Organized as part of the city school system, for many years the two-year college occupied a site on North Oakes Street near the commercial center of the city. The voters of Tom Green County in 1945 created a county junior college district and elected the first board of trustees. In 1947, the first building was constructed on the present university site.

The university has experienced a rapid transition from the status of a regional junior college, to that of an accredited senior institution of higher learning. Pushed through the legislature by State Senator Dorsey B. Hardeman, a former mayor of San Angelo, the former San Angelo College was transformed into Angelo State College in 1965 by an act of the 58th Session of the Texas State Legislature in 1963. The transfer of authority from the Board of Trustees of the junior college to the Board of Regents, State Senior Colleges, became effective on September 1, 1965. In May 1967, the first baccalaureate degrees were awarded. Shortly after Hardeman retired from the Senate, the name of the institution was changed to Angelo State University in May 1969
