Appalachian State University Top Questions

Describe the students at Appalachian State University.


Extremely nice and helpful! That being said, there are always a few bad APPles, but they don't spoil the bunch! I have met so many people at ASU that are willing to help you no matter what. The college is very liberal, so if this isn't your scene, I wouldn't recommend it. Many days I have seen people wearing no shoes, wild animals on their shoulders, not having showered for a few days. It's entertaining at times! An extremely accepting community!

Absolutely no one would feel any less than welcome at Appalachian State. The students here are some of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of coming into contact with. No one judges you, and no one cares one way or another how you choose to live your life. Every one is a unique individual here and they aren't pushed away because of it.


Classmates here at Appalachian State University are very personable and easy to talk to if you are in need of extra assistance in your class besides your professor.


Most students at Appalachian are from the Charlotte, Raleigh, or Greensboro areas. Finding a ride home has never been a problem. There are a lot of out-of-state and international students as well. As a campus, I see people of different cultures, religions, and nationalities interacting very often and with ease. It is not segregated in any way, but I do think that more students could try to educate themselves on other cultures to eliminate preventable ignorance. When it comes to style at ASU, it is extremely eclectic. Most students where whatever they are feeling that day. However, there is one common fashion denominator that is spotted everywhere on this campus. That common denominator goes by the name of Chaco. Many of the students here own a pair of Chacos because they making walking comfortable and they can be worn during many outdoor activities. Other than that, everyone pretty much does their own thing and is accepted for it.


we are a largely green school and it is growing! the town busses run on a bio-fuel and there is a whole dorm running strictly on solar power! they are always trying to make changes and improvements for a greener atmosphere. You see a lot of modern day hippies, long hair and bear feet! most people are extremely friendly and its easy to make friends. The dining hall is great! a deli and chick fil a right on campus. most syudents are from somewhere in NC but there are plenty of out of state and even out of country students! this past year there was a load of british soccer players (ohhh yea can you say HOT?) Students are politically aware and religiously active! so much diversity!
