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.

    This university is what I have dreamed of! It's literally like one of those cute movies during spring time where everyones out on the field playing frisbee or yoga. They are very dedicated to see us grow and be successful.

    There is no better growing and learning environment then the Appalachian Mountains. Every student is a part of the mountaineer family, and is encouraged to grow through friendly competition and hands-on learning experience in a beautiful mountain setting. With so many available majors and even a graduate program, Appalachian State has everything a student needs to reach their full potential.

    We are not diverse, but we are strong. We have a close knit family. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

    It's a very good school. Everything looks so far away, but it really takes around 10 or so minutes to go to the farthest part of campus, depending on how fast you're willing to walk. Most of the people are very kind and the most professors are willing to help you as long as you ask them to. This isn't 3 sentences, but don't be scared of graduates teaching because they know what they're talking about (most of the time).

    Appalachian is as liberal as they come. The school embraces individuality, but it still supports being a community. Appalachian is a unique and beautiful campus filled with scenery, outdoors activities, and a wonderful student body.

    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.
