5 College Senior

Majors: I have had no problem getting into the two year psychology bachelors program. The most important criterion is to have the 57 credit hours and the money to pay for classes.

Majors: I have never had an internship. But, I would love to a internship in the Department of Psychology or in the guidance office. I have recently stopped working with therapeutic teenagers in my home in order to devote 100% to my college education. My long-term goal is to open a independent living home for homeless teenagers or teens Aging Out of Foster Care.

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't bother me. I did go through rush and was only matched with one group and dropped out. My heart wasn't in it and for the most part I didn't have the time/enthusiasm it seemed to warrant.

Greeks don't usually bother non-greeks. The guys are kind of douchey but a lot of the girls are friendly.

Campus Strictness: School is not any stricter than any other school, I feel. Their rules aren't unreasonable, and if you are just generally respectful and responsible, you won't have a problem. I drank in the dorms underage every year until I turned 21 and I was never caught. Just don't be an idiot, don't be loud, and stay in your room!

I do, however, think they should be stricter in enforcing their smoking policy. They have policies but have not once enforced them, leaving it to students and staff to confront rule-breakers which often doesn't do anything.

Parking: Parking on campus is AWFUL. There are only 2 dormitory buildings that allow students to park their cars in the parking lot. No matter where you park, it is $300+ for the semester, even the parking lot that is over a mile away from campus. For people like myself that work night shifts, it is absolutely awful. Either you park on campus and risk a $30 ticket/towing, or you park where you have a pass and risk being alone at night trying to get home.

I had to buy an off-campus parking pass this year, which is even worse. There's no public transportation to or from my parking lot, and they charged me $375 cash only. (COULDN'T EVEN TAKE A CREDIT CARD)

Bottom line. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Campus Dining: The on campus dining is not very conducive to special dietary needs. The labeling for what the food contains is not very clear for those with food allergies like myself. If you do not have a food allergy you will have many different food options.

Guys & Girls: In Boone, you find a lot of different forms of culture. The people range from hippies to preppy. Boone will turn you into more of an Earthy person no matter where you start out. There aren't a lot of racial diversity though.

Facilities: My school is really good about making sure that the outdoors is very well kept. The main quad is the center of student life and where most things happen on campus. The gyms are very nice, the aquatics center is a very nice facility. Legends is our on campus venue where music acts come and normally we get a lot of really good acts.

Parking: There is no parking in Boone in general. Mostly downtown and on campus you have to pay to park, and for a limited time. Parking passes range from 250-850. The meeter maids and campus parking staff are always checking cars to catch someone, and ticket or boot.

Nightlife: There aren't many places for people under 21 to go on weekend nights or weekdays unless its to someones house. Public transportation isn't very reliable at that time, so Beepers or DDs are the way to go.

Diversity: It is a mountain school, but the school s very active on making sure to create a multicultural experience as a student. It has expanded greatly over the last ten years or so.

Campus Dining: As for college dining halls, Appalachian has the basics. There's a Chic-Fil-A and sub shop, as well as a pizzeria and burrito place. The food gets old after eating it nearly every day, but it's tolerable.

Academics: There are a variety of majors with professors who are willing to get personal and help your needs if you ask. The general workload hasn't been terrible, but that is really based on who your professor is as well.

Nightlife: There's a lack of options in Boone. Char is the basic club that everyone ends up at. The frat houses are off campus, so getting there is difficult sometimes. Overall, there needs to be more to the nightlife than what's here.

Scholarships: Financial aid seems easy enough to acquire with the university. The process is simple and easy to get through, so overall the experience is rather painless.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a good variety of off campus foods in Boone. I enjoy eating off campus as mush as eating on campus. Since I live off campus I have the freedom of eating off campus too.
