    One reason why I chose Appalachian State is because of how many activities there are to participate in. One could go rock climbing indoors at the Student Recreational Center or even outdoors somewhere around campus, hike on one of the numerous hiking trails, slack-line somewhere on campus, participate in club/intramural activities, or kayak/whitewater raft on one of the nearby rivers.

    Join clubs, do community service, see any of the shows and go to any of the events that Appalachian's Popular Programming Society holds all over campus, every week.

    There are parties everywhere. The cottages usually have parties every weekend. House parties are fun and plentiful - if you don't know where a party is happening, you're not even looking for one. Char is fun also.

    There is always something going on. Join one of the hundreds of clubs and you will always have something to do. There are also events hosted by other groups, talks, and concerts. Within the residence halls, RA's host programs as another fun thing to do.

    Soooo many clubs and outdoor experiences. Many students hike or hang out at waterfalls for fun. There are also a plethora of excursion opportunities (kayaking, rock climbing, rafting, etc.) available. The Student Recreation Center is very nice, including a large pool, two gyms, a track, a workout room, and a very tall rock wall. The Boone Mini Mall, just off campus, is also a cool little collection of stores.

    The Student Recreation Center is a great place for students to work out, play sports, and enjoy activities. There's two nice quiet cafe with great quality coffee to help studies at an enjoyable pace.
