Ambria - 01/10/2020

I love the school and wouldn't want to attend any other. All the teachers are always available and willing to help you and I feel as safe as can be on campus. The staff and students go out of there way to make you feel like family and everyone is there for one common reason and that is to serve God. I also love that the campus is small and that the student body is not big. They offer different things to get involved in such as different singing groups, acting, instrumental programs, and puppets. And there is always plenty of choices to pick from when choosing your meal in the cafeteria. But one of my favorite things is the activities that you do weekly with your dorm it is a time you get to spend together and become closer with one another. School rating: 10/10

Kandus - 12/16/2019

I love the college and am supper excited to be starting there in January. The three stars are not because they are not good, but are because I don’t know the answer. Everyone there is really friendly and show what true Christians are like. I have no complains about the school.

Phillip - 01/24/2018

I have a good opinion of Appalachian Bible College for several reasons. First, the faculty genuinely cares about the student body and often will go out of their way to help us. Also, the college is small which keeps the atmosphere healthy with almost everyone knowing everyone. The college is a private institution that is non-government funded. this keeps the college from having to change to continue receiving funding and puts all that pressure off.

Karrie - 11/20/2017

Appalachian Bible College is an all around great place. I have made friends, played sports, and studied hard. Thanksgiving Break started recently, but since then I have been in contact with some of the friends I made. Because of volleyball I have been able to travel to different states. By studying I have made A's and one B. The B is from Speech; the class is hard but has grown me. ABC is a wonderful place to be!
