San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo activities will have a definite Angelo State University flair this Saturday, Feb. 4, for the first official ASU Day at the Rodeo.


Activities will begin with the annual Rodeo Parade at 10 a.m., and several ASU offices and student organizations will be participating, along with ASU President Brian J. May.

The midway area of the San Angelo Fairgrounds will be decorated with ASU flags, and ASU student RAMbassadors will greet everyone who attends the matinee rodeo performance at 1 pm. A large contingent of ASU faculty and staff will be in attendance, and ASU’s live Rambouillet ram mascot, Dominic, will be available on the arena floor for photos after the rodeo performance.

Then, during the 7:30 p.m. rodeo performance, ASU student-athletes and members of ASU’s Student Government Association, ROTC Detachment 847 and other student organizations will be on hand to greet attendees and will have free souvenir ASU footballs for a few lucky fans.

All ASU students, faculty and staff can gain free admission to the fairgrounds midway this Saturday by wearing their ASU gear and showing their campus ID cards. ASU will also provide Ram Tram shuttle service for students from the ASU campus to the fairgrounds and back from 6-11 p.m.
