4 College Sophomore

Academics: I enjoy going to ASU

3 College Freshman

Majors: From day one, you are put on the path to your major. If you turn out to not like it, it really does set you back. Especially if you're a music major. I don't enjoy it because I am not as passionate to take lessons as some of the other students. There is a really big classical emphasis that hurts singers that specify in another kind of singing. They are very good at what they do, but it is not for everyone.

Majors: I have never had an internship there. I have been told that for my major there are very good programs to help place you the second semester of your senior year.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team is going to be D1 next year, which is great. However, football is the only thing that people really care about and things like Basketball are pushed to the wayside.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There are a lot of things that goes with being a music major and it really is a hassle sometimes. You have to attend certain things and take lessons that are required. You are put on a path to your career your freshman year, so be prepared.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The heath services here is very basic. If you are very sick, you should seek help at the urgent care instead. Safe Ride is a service provided to students to get around campus safely, however they are very bad at answering the phone.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here changes constantly. It could be shorts weather on Saturday and turn into snow and in the 20's and freezing by Thursday. The wind gets really really bad.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had to live off campus, but I hear that there are some good places and then there are more run down places.

Nightlife: I don't go out much because I'm not into the party scene, but I alway here of good spots in the Cottages or on Oak Street.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dinning is great if you're willing to try organic or vegan food. They are very sensitive to that. Things are just expensive and there is not many places to go eat within the city of Boone if you do not have a car to get around to another place.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There is not really any diversity on campus and it's really sad when you don't have any variation. The university is very accepting, there is just no diversity.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a scholarship and that works out very well, but friends of mine have had a horrible time with the financial aid amount being changed in the middle of the first semester.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town of Boone is very small and there are good restaurants around, but they are expensive. If you don't have a car, you can't get to neighboring towns like Blowing Rock. There are many art events on campus and the football games bring a large crowd. The mall is very small with at the most 15 stores.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm not one to hike or to go out onto the rivers here, so campus life to me isn't very interesting. There isn't much to do and they've shut down the dinning hall on my side of campus. There are an abundance of hills and steps to reach dorms such as the LLC, Mountaineer Hall and App Heights. The bus system is unreliable and if you need to get somewhere, it's very bad and inconvenient. The campus' Safe Ride is very very unreliable and you can ring for at least ten minutes before getting an answer.
