Appalachian State University Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about Appalachian State University?


I brag about the atmosphere on football game days. It truly is an amazing feeling to see everyone, current and past students and other fans, dressed in black and gold and cheering on our team. This also makes me feel so united and close to the people around me. We are all there to support something we love. The roar of the crowd in Kidd Brewer Stadium is truly amazing, and it gives me such a sense of pride and joy. I am truly thaknful to be a part of such an amazing university.


I most brag about the beauty of the campus and the surrounding mountainous area of Boone.


That it is in the mountains.


When I tell my friends about ASU, I brag that we are the number one producing school in NC for those graduating with degrees in education. I also brag that ASU is the number one university in the nation for having alumni that become nationally board certified instructors. I also tell my friends that the staff at ASU are helpful and kind to those who transitioned from a community college from personal experience.


The people at AppState are so incredibly nice! If you need anything, there will always be someone there to help you, even if you've never met them before! Also, it's located in the mountains, so it's absolutely beautiful.


I like to tell my friends about the wonderful campus, and the great environment that ASU is a part of. The campus is a perfect size, and the city of Boone has so many other things to offer the students. The community of Appalachian is very friendly, and it's so easy to get caught with friends when you have work to do. But most of all, I love the weather. It can be a little warm, but it's always hard to predict; even the amount of snow we get can be misunderstood.


Through pictures and stories I am constantly bragging to my friends and family about the outdoor life Appalachian has to offer. Since I have been living in Boone, I have spent much of my free time exploring the Mountainous regions of Appalachia through numerous recreational activities. From star-gazing to swimming, from night hiking to taking pictures, Appalachian's outdoor programs have served as a great escape from the somewhat busy and stressful lifestyle college has now added to my life.


How much fun we have up here


It's beautiful here! The mountain scenery is amazing and the mall is such a cool green area. We get great legs from the workout walking to class every day, which might seem like a negative - but for those of us who are less motivated to work out -it's great. Everyone is chill and I love the program that I'm in. Everyone is spirited and there's plenty to do. Although Boone is small, it's a really cute town.


When I first toured Appalachian, I was immediately captured by the atmosphere of the school. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming and there was a strong sense of community. I think that is what makes Appalachian unique: the strong student community and the feeling that you can be whoever you want without being judged for it. The typical App student is unique. There is little social pressure here to conform to a certain style of dress or social activity. The campus and surrounding area are also gorgeous; I think this is an important aspect of App as well.
