Senate Bill 11 - Campus Carry... It has been a great debate across campus and one that has not been carried lightly.  A law that expands the areas on campus in which a person with a concealed handgun license (CHL) or a license to carry (LTC) is allowed to conceal carry.  As a result, a Campus Carry Policy Task Force was created in order to gather information and take into consideration the concerns of the campus community.  Through much deliberation and discussion, the team was able to comprise policy recommendations that would ensure a safe campus while collectively upholding the integrity of the law. In April, at a special called Board of Regents meeting, ASU's Concealed Carry of Handguns on Campus Policy was presented and approved.  This policy (and law) will go into effect August 1, 2016.
Did you know... 
Central Receiving delivers on average 60 packages a day to the various departments on campus.  With approximately 300 packages a week going through Central Receiving, we want to make sure you are getting your packages in a timely manner. Thus, the more information you are able to include on your purchases, the easier it will be for us to find you. And, if you are making purchases via your ProCard it would be helpful to include the cardholder and/or department name along with the word ProCard on all packaging lists and box labels.  Should you find that your character space is limited you may shorten Angelo State University to ASU.  FMI and helpful tips...

Feeding your smart phones...  How many times as a kid did you hear someone say, "Don't eat that!  You don't know where that's been!"  Well the same concept applies to your smart phones and your tablets.  You need to take better care and make sure you know where they have been and where they are.  They need to be locked, scanned, and kept close track of like your cousin Vinnie after that string of convenience store robberies.  If you don't know where to begin don't fret because IT has created a page to help you figure out how to configure your devices so that they are safe and sound.  Super-Cool Web Page...
