A&M-Commerce has the benefits of a large school while still retaining a small school feel, which I have always felt helps personalize the educational experience for students.

Steven Allemang is a self-described man without a hometown. His father served in the U.S. Army during the Cold War era and Steven joined the U.S. Marines directly after graduating from high school. He joined the world of academia after completing his Marine Corps career.

Steven believes having earned two degrees from A&M-Commerce helps him connect with local audiences in general, and students specifically, as a homegrown member of the university community.

A Conversation with Steven

What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?

A&M-Commerce has a lot to offer everyone and has challenging but rewarding programs in many areas of study. You will not regret the choice to attend our university. It has the benefits of a large school while still retaining a small school feel, which I have always felt helps personalize the educational experience for students.

What do you like most about your career?

Physics and Astronomy are not my first career, but they are subjects that I am very passionate about. Working to educate the general public on astronomy is always exciting for me. The Planetarium provides opportunities to foster interest in STEM subjects in general, and astronomy specifically. That is always rewarding. My position also allows me to help prepare the next generation of educators to teach science through the science inquiry classes.
