Jenny Love reminisces on her days at ASU. Love works in the Mayer Administration Building as the Development Officer.

Native to San Angelo, Jenny Love began attending ASU in the fall of 1992.

"Deep down I always knew I was going to Angelo State. My mom graduated from Angelo State, and my grandmother worked at ASU," Love said. "So we have a rich history in our family of Angelo State. I was very proud of staying here."

Love already had a major picked out when starting, however, her plan quickly changed.

"I started thinking I was going to graduate with an accounting major, but I graduated with a general business degree. Honestly, with the career path that I’ve taken, I was very well prepared with that degree."

She was a member of Delta Sigma Pi during her time at ASU.

"I was very involved with Delta Sigma Pi, which is still active here on campus. I was involved all four years; it’s a professional business fraternity. We had lots of fun but also learned a lot about what it means to be a professional."

Love feels her time at ASU impacted her and taught her several skills and lessons.

"I think getting involved outside of class- doesn’t matter what organization, helps you to form good networking skills and being able to understand different personality types. Once you get into the real world people skills really are important. You have to be able to stand strong with your convictions but be open to other people’s thoughts so you can meet on common ground- especially in the work place." She also adds that, "It teaches you to work hard and show up. Participating, being a part of something bigger than you."

Love remembers some of her most influential professors well.

"Dr. Maddox was my economics professor. Economics can be a challenging course, but he maJede it fun. Sharon Tomlin, she’s still here, to have a female role model like her, showing that you can accomplish anything no matter your gender- that was cool."

Love was able to take advantage of ASU’s study abroad program while she was here.

"I did study abroad; I actually went the English and Music departments. I met people I would’ve normally never come in contact with on campus. It was the most rewarding experience. We were in Luxemburg, Germany for six weeks. I went with Dr. Allen. We had so much fun."

After graduating in December of 1996, Love began her career.

"I went to work for Ford Motor Credit Company right after college. I moved to Midland and advanced with that company for 12 years."

In 2008, Love, her husband, and two boys moved back to San Angelo.

"I went to work at Crockett National Bank and was with them for about 8 years before I started working at ASU."

Love is now a Development Officer for the university.

"I am a guide to helping alumni, community members, and friends of the university make an impact for the students of Angelo State, learning what people priorities are and then matching them with the university’s priorities so that they can make an impact."

Love said her favorite part of the job is connecting with members of the Ram Fam.

"I love talking to alumni. Talking to folks whose lives’ were changed because of Angelo state, it’s priceless."
