What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Appalachia state. There are plenty of things to do for fun, academically, and socially. Everyone is friendly and caring. There is over 400 clubs to chose from. It is a culturally diverse university which is amazing for young and older students. I could not see my self attending any other university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although Appalachian State (App) offers an elegant mountain view, I would stress prospective students do not judge a book by it's cover. App state is a community of engagement! Please do not watch Netflix in a cave your whole time...play sports, explore around, etc! The community life proves tenuous at times for introverts like myself, so assert and maintain involvement with clubs or friends with healthy breaks. The academics of App harbor a caring community of professors and peers. The smaller classes offer refined curriculums and resources. The biggest drawbacks of attending App State is the occasional rigid communities and the lack of diversity. Nonetheless, choose what is best for you and your career on or off the mountain!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I would say that Appalachian State University is an outstanding school that offers a top-notch education. The teachers have just as strong a desire to give information as the students do to receive it and the campus is absolutely outstanding.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Appalachian State University has a beautiful campus and there are a ton of great students who go here. It's a very inclusive school and almost everyone you meet is welcoming and nice. We are really a collective and try to make conversation whenever possible. My freshman year, in all of my classes I made at least one friend very easily and still see them all the time. I love spending time here, the gloomy, rainy days aren't for everyone but I think that those gloomy days make the sunny ones even better. Whenever it snows (which is often) or is sunny outside, there will always be plenty of people out, snowboarding down the mall, or just jammin out with friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school, the environment is welcoming and happy, the mountains that surround the school are beautiful and the winter snow always a sweet surprise. There are hundreds of activities that are opne to students at all times no matter what you are into you can find something that you will love to get involved with. Education is the top priority, and there are many opportunities for students to get help and receive the best quality education that they can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I wouldn’t go anywhere else! The class sizes are just right, large enough that I don’t feel odd or like I stick out too much, but small enough that I feel comfortable getting help from professors. The campus is beautiful, and there is a significant amount of oppurtunity in the form of connection and academics that can hardly be found anywhere else. Go Mountaineers!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have no clue why people enjoy this school. As a minority, coming here was possibly the biggest mistake I have ever made in my life and I am miserable here, looking to transfer to UNC Chapel Hill. When I visited UNC, I immediately felt something click in that I could totally see myself at UNC; There is so much diversity and different kinds of people. I'm not just talking about cultural diversity, but intellectually as well. Take this exact opposite, Appalachian State. I am going to be honest and not sugarcoat anything here. Appalachian State is full of conformist, unintelligent, lazy people with absolutely nothing going on in their lives. First, there is zero cultural diversity. This makes for a very boring and lack of flavor experience. The entire school is one person- one type. Second, most people here are extremely indifferent towards life and lack any sort of drive, ambition, or passion. It is extremely dry. Third, the campus is extremely isolated and located in a rural mountain town. Not only does it make for a very boring experience, but it there is no opportunity. If you are looking for any sort of intellectual college experience and are a minority, there is a good chance coming here will make you MISERABLE.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

One of the best things about App State are the Professors! I have never had a teacher that wasn't willing to go out of their way to make sure every student is understanding what is going on. Another big thing is class sizes. Personally, the average number of students I have class with is under 20 students, this makes it easy to get help when it is needed. I can say that App State is the college to be at!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love the school. The faculty are great and will meet with you after class to go over assignments or to help you with tutoring. I enjoy being able to get involved with different clubs like CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) and being a vital part of the men's scout team that practices vs the Lady Mountaineers basketball team.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Appalachian State is a great place for my daughter to attend college. I visited in October and the atmosphere was great. I enjoyed the review of the school from the admissions officers and the tour guides that took us around campus. I look forward to Charlee furthering her education there and becoming involved in many of the campus activities.
