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.

    One or the best schools in NC but is extremely underestimated. The town of Boone, where App. is located, is a wonderful town with a lot of street life and a dash of southern flair in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    When I visited this university for the Open House event, I was abosolutely enthralled by the gorgeous campus and Boone! All of the student ambassadors were so enthusiastic and welcoming, which made for a very pleasant and fun visit. The deparments and programs are very well developed (especially theatre, communications, bio, and music) and I'm incredibly excited to apply!

    I can't wait to attend this school, I am so excited. The campus seemed great and inviting when I visited earlier this year. The environment felt really relaxing to me and felt like I could make this campus home.

    Appalachian is a beautiful and small campus that creates a sense of community. Professors and staff are supportive and encouraging in the quest for higher education, but as a whole too much attention is placed on athletics, specifically football. Diversity is lacking on campus, but the college attempts to foster global mindfulness.

    While I am not there yet, I know people who go to App and say it's a wonderful school. Boone by itself is just a great place and so beautiful too. This school is definitely one that people should consider.
