The endowed chair for ASU’s only doctoral program was established through a $1 million grant from the James A. “Buddy” Davidson Charitable Foundation in Midland. The grant was paid out over three years with the first installment coming in 2017. Endowed chairs are used to enhance a professor’s salary and to provide additional funds for research, teaching and service activities. To be the holder of an endowed chair is one of the most prestigious accolades a professor can attain.

Dr. Shelly WeiseDr. Shelly Weise“It is an honor to be named the Davidson Chair in Physical Therapy,” Weise said. “On behalf of myself and the entire Physical Therapy Department, we are grateful to the James A. “Buddy” Davidson Charitable Foundation for its support as we strive for excellence in physical therapy education.”

Also a professor of physical therapy, Weise joined the ASU faculty in 2000 and has been chair of the Department of Physical Therapy since 2014. She previously served as department head and program director in 2004-07 when physical therapy was still a master’s degree program. She also directed the Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) program in 2011-13 and served as head of the Department of Nursing and Rehabilitation Sciences in 2013-14 when the Nursing and Physical Therapy departments were combined.

Dr. Leslie MayrandDr. Leslie Mayrand“Dr. Weise is the personification of excellence in physical therapy education, and I believe she will serve admirably as the inaugural Davidson Endowed Chair,” said Dr. Leslie Mayrand, dean of the Archer College of Health and Human Services.

Weise is also a licensed physical therapist and has maintained a part-time practice at several San Angelo physical therapy clinics since 1997, including currently at Baptist Memorials and Gateway Home Health. Her other industry experience includes:

  • Physical therapist, Shannon Medical Center, 2004-15 (part time)
  • Staff physical therapist, West Texas Rehabilitation Center, 1997-98
  • Staff physical therapist, St. Joseph’s Hospital in College Station, 1994-97
  • Exercise physiologist, St. Joseph’s Hospital, 1990-91

Specializing in cardiopulmonary therapy and exercise physiology, Weise has received multiple research grants and has presented her research through dozens of published abstracts and professional conference sessions. She has also reviewed manuscripts for several industry journals, including Journal of Women’s Health, Physiotherapy Theory and Practice, and Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy Journal.

Weise holds a bachelor’s degree in biology, master’s degree in kinesiology and Doctor of Education in physical education from Texas A&M University, as well as her Master of Science in physical therapy degree from Texas Woman’s University.

The endowed chair in physical therapy is the third at ASU funded by the James A. “Buddy” Davidson Charitable Foundation and the second in the Archer College of Health and Human Services. The James A. “Buddy” Davidson Chair in Nursing Excellence was established by a $1 million grant in 2009 and is held by Dr. Wrennah Gabbert, professor of nursing and chair of the Department of Nursing.

ASU’s James A. “Buddy” Davidson Chair in Agricultural Science and Leadership in the College of Science and Engineering was funded with a $1 million grant in 2010. That chair is held by Dr. James “Will” Dickison, associate professor of agriculture science.

For the first time since 2008, Angelo State University will present its annual Homecoming Parade on campus rather than in downtown San Angelo. The 2019 Homecoming Parade will take place on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 10 a.m., and the public is encouraged to attend the free event.

The parade will start in the parking lot of ASU’s Foster Field at 1st Community Credit Union Stadium on Jackson Street, head west in front of the Junell Center to Phil George Drive, and then take the following route:

  • Right on Phil George Drive to Dena Drive
  • Left on Dena Drive to Johnson Street
  • Right on Johnson Street to Vanderventer Avenue
  • Right on Vanderventer Avenue to Van Buren Street
  • Right on Van Buren Street to end at the Junell Center parking lot

The parade will include floats featuring ASU student organizations, the Ram Band, ROTC Detachment 847, the 2019 alumni honorees and the Homecoming king and queen nominees. Community groups and organizations are also invited to participate – and can sign up at www.angelo.edu/parade. The sign-up deadline is Sept. 27.

This year’s Homecoming theme is “ASU in Space,” and groups are encouraged to decorate their parade entries according to the theme, and to show their ASU blue and gold pride.

Hosting the Homecoming Parade on campus is a return to previous tradition and will make it easier for more students and alumni to participate in the festivities. Also, similar to moving ASU Rams football games to campus in 2014, having the parade on campus will be a tremendous boost to school spirit and pride in the Ram Family.

The education services company features Angelo State in the 2020 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 385 Colleges,” published Aug. 6 by Random House. The guide is The Princeton Review’s (TPR) flagship publication and includes detailed profiles of the colleges with rating scores that are based on surveys of 140,000 students nationally.

ASU is one of 14 Texas institutions and one of only six Texas public universities to make the 2020 “Best Colleges” list.

Dr. Brian J. MayDr. Brian J. May“Last year, we hit the 10-year milestone of making the ‘Best Colleges’ list, and this is a great way to start the next decade,” said ASU President Brian J. May. “The best part about being ranked by The Princeton Review is that the rankings are based mainly on feedback from our students. We strive to balance offering a great education with also offering services, programs and activities that provide our students with the complete college experience. Our continued ranking by The Princeton Review is an awesome reflection on the entire Ram Family.”

Dr. Tedd L. MitchellDr. Tedd L. Mitchell“Angelo State continues to prove it is among the top undergraduate universities not only in the state, but in the country,” said Dr. Tedd L. Mitchell, chancellor of the Texas Tech University System and president of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. “Dr. May and the Angelo State leadership team have done a fantastic job going above and beyond to provide quality resources and a top-notch education for its students. We are proud of this recognition and we congratulate the Ram Fam for achieving excellence from The Princeton Review for 11 consecutive years.” 

The 84-question TPR survey asks students to rate their own schools on numerous topics and report on their campus experiences. Topics range from assessments of academics and professors to campus culture and student life. Based on the survey results, ASU also earned the following rankings:

  • No. 10 – Best-Run Colleges
  • No. 11 – Most Conservative Students
  • No. 13 – Town-Gown Relations are Great
  • No. 16 – Lots of Race/Class Interaction

TPR also listed Angelo State among the “Great Schools” for two of the top 20 most popular undergraduate majors, agriculture and nursing. On a scale of 60-99, ASU also received a Quality of Life Rating of 92, a Fire Safety Rating of 96 and a Green Rating of 84.

Other student survey results for ASU indicate:

  • Students are happy
  • Great financial aid
  • Recreation facilities are great
  • Intramural sports are popular
  • Students love San Angelo, Texas
  • Everyone loves the Rams

The latest TPR guide states that “Angelo State puts forth an academic environment that is ‘small enough to foster a sense of family among its students, but large enough to carry out the usual dealings of universities that have many more students.’ Among these offerings are ‘outstanding instructors,’ ‘top-rated programs,’ and a low faculty-to-student ratio. The students at Angelo State University offer an extraordinarily ‘friendly and welcoming’ atmosphere on campus. It’s also a large enough school that ‘you are constantly meeting new people, but at the same time you get to see the people you are well-acquainted with.’ Students at the school affectionately refer to fellow members of the university as the ‘Ram Fam.’”

In addition to making The Princeton Review’s list of “The Best 385 Colleges,” ASU was among the institutions in 15 western states listed in TPR’s “Best Western” website feature at www.princetonreview.com/college-rankings?rankings=best-western.
