Most Helpful Review for Appalachian State University

Appalachian State is not your typical college learning experience. When I was searching for the right college I was really looking for a school that not only prepared me academically for life after college but also taught me things that aren't written in textbooks. At Appalachian you definitely get both learning experiences. The professors are great and actually care if you do well. Most of the fellow students are like-minded and similarly motivated to be well accomplished. Overall, Appalachian offers the perfect well-rounded college experience that prepares your for both the work force and life general.

    Appalachian State University is not only a college that provides a wonderful education but it also supplies an adventurous and exciting yet comfortable campus. The people there are encouraging, smart, and welcoming and the surrounding town of Boone is a quaint place to hang out. Overall I would recommend Appalachian to everyone.

    AppState is the perfect place to spend four or five years getting an education! It has excellent faculty and staff that love helping their students, and campus is beautiful. In your free time, there are lots of things to do: hike the parkway, go to a sports event, join Greek life, or just through the Frisbee with your friends!

    The campus is stunning. Boone people don't want college kids there. It feels like vacation town.

    The Campus is a 9.9/10. The Scholastics is a 9/10. The professors get a 8.5/10, because some ruin it for others.

    I would rate Appalachian State University a 8 out of 10. I toured the campus and I received a better understanding of the school that I will be attending. The tour mentors, the staff, and the students who attend the school were very helpful in teaching me about furthering my educational career path in the Fall of 2014.

    App is a very welcoming community with a plethora of opportunities, even for underclassmen. The campus feels very laid back and encourages outdoor activities and active student life. The Honors College also seems to give lots of personal attention to its students.
