What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
App is a school that is reasonably sized with a staff that really cares about making a student's education a priority. Although App is a bit cold in the winters, it is well worth attending a school with so many great things to do. Appalachian State University is THE school to be at!

The rustic mountains make calling it home easier than I ever thought possible. The friendly atmosphere creates lasting and loving friendships for a lifetime. Lastly, but not least, the innovative thinkers that enter the classrooms each day give a lasting impression of how positive and bright the future can and will be!
