Dr. Joseph Rallo became President of Angelo State University in June 2007, just as ASU joined the Texas Tech University System.
Angelo State University will reach 10,000 students the hard way, given ASU's difficulty recruiting true freshmen. The spate of Vice Presidents and Assistant Vice Presidents of Enrollment Management never got ASU's freshmen class past the first year under TTU spike.
ASU's Graduate Program experienced significant growth from 493 in 2008 to 880 in 2012. ASU is a tale of two universities under Dr. Rallo, freshmen and graduate. Which trajectory will win out?
