Tristan Deanda, freshman, uses the ASU discount at a favorite restaurant. Over thirty restaurants partnered with the school’s discount program.

Since its beginning in 2007, ASU’s Student Discount Program has partnered with over a hundred businesses to offer student discounts.

SGA Public Relations Chairman Shinae Vedder, junior, said that students can use the discount offers to get out of their dorms and into the community without worrying about prices.

In addition, the program benefits San Angelo’s economy by bringing in students as customers for local businesses.

"Most of the small businesses in San Angelo support the school, so they want to show their support by offering some type of discount to ASU students," sophomore SGA parliamentarian Michael Abarca said. "It is a win-win for everyone because the businesses get more customers and the students are saving money."

Restaurants and apartments are currently the most-used discounts, but Vedder said they want to add business like spas and gyms to the list.

According to Abarca, students can check the whiteboard pillars in the library for listings of new businesses in the program.

"The Student Discount Page on the ASU website is constantly updating with new additions, so curious students interested in seeing what new businesses have joined the program can visit the page," Abarca added.

The SGA accepts suggestions for businesses students would like to see added to the program at sga@angelo.edu.
