3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not involved with the Greek life but my roommate is. She does go to a lot of mixers but she says it's not like the stereotypical girls you see in the movies.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Make sure to rate your professor. You won't always get into the classes you want or may need at the time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It has been great! Close to classes and a meal plan!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Same food every day gets old. Eating Chick Fil A 5 times a week isn't exactly the best.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: As a freshman, parking is terrible. Upperclassmen get priority and take up the worthwhile spots on campus.

5 College Freshman

Computers: There are Mac Computers everywhere!! They're in the library, computer labs, classrooms, it literally is like the staple of App. I personally do not know how to work them, but I am forced to learn (Im a PC User)!! Pretty much all computers are in excellent shape. Every classroom has the fancy projectors that hang from the ceiling. Printing is easy, you use your AppCard for them and its really cheap to print .03 cents a page!! Now, the internet is a little sketch in some dorms...but most public areas are fine. I suggest bring an Ethernet cord just in case. Life is also a LOT easier if you have your own laptop.

4 College Freshman

Academics: All of the professors are very excited about what they teach and know what they are talking about. It really makes you want to learn it. Occasionally you will get the boring monotone teacher but that's to be expected.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Most clubs are very accessible and and are 18+. But they are usually hit and miss.

2 College Senior

Majors: Anyone interested in a dietetic internship knows it is a long and annoying process. Be prepared to spend a lot of money and a lot of time. Also know that less than 50% of people get one.

3 College Senior

Majors: I love nutrition. It's my passion and my love. Nutrition combines both what we love-food- and what we know- science. Internships are required so be prepared.

5 College Senior

Majors: As a future RD we spend one year acting as an RD. It is really very cool that we get to practice before we actually have to be RD's.

3 College Senior

Majors: I love App States Nutrition program. The professors are really supportive and the environment is fun to live in. However, if you are not a fan of rural environments stay away. If I could do it again I would find a way to get in state tuition. It is possible just takes effort. I am not concerned about finding a job. Nutrition is a growing field!

2 College Freshman

Parking: Freshman have a very hard time getting parking spaces with the University, and when you do you end up way off campus. In order to get to your car as a freshman with parking through the university you have to take the bus system. However, if you buy parking from a private seller around campus you can get a good parking spots for a decent price.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love how calm and inviting Boone is. The town really loves their students and have many ways to show their appreciation. The majority of the people living in Boone may be students but it maintains their small town feel, especially through King Street.

College Senior

Scholarships: I have a unique situation in which i do not receive financial aide anymore, the office is efficient, the workers are helpful, and the responses are quick. I cannot comment on the aide itself.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Cutting edge technologies in every department i have had the fortune of visiting or having class in. App State has one of the more user friendly online systems i have had to use through my many years of school

4 College Senior

Diversity: There are people from all over the world and places i have never even herd of. Sports, clubs, organizations are blossoming with diversity.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms on the West Side (Coltrane, Gardner, Justice, Eggers, Bowie)are dumps. The good ones are App Heights, Mountaineer (up a large hill, pretty far from everything) and the best(location wise) is Newland. Most of the East side has been remodeled recently so they are all pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My classes have all given me a great coverage of the topic and I have been fairly successful

College Freshman

Academics: I havn't goteen into my major yet so I can't really say but the teaching program at App had a great reputation

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Lots of kids use around campus but there's not a lot of pressure

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Appalachian tries very hard to ensure that diversity is a staple at our university and to promote growth within the diverse community. Appalachian has held several campus wide events focused on diversity and diverse awareness. The down side to this aspect at App State is that while there is a big call to awareness the actual population of diverse pupils at Appalachian, while growing, is still a very small portion of the population represented at the university.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is huge part of the campus life at AppState, and the surrounding town of Boone. However, there could definitely be more support for our other sports such as basketball and baseball.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Boone always keeps you on your toes. It can be warm and beautiful one week, and snowing the next. As a matter of fact, when I woke up this morning it was 55 and raining. Now there is 6 inches of snow on the ground.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football games are incredible-huge crowds and a great team. The athletic department itself brings this grade down significantly. It is my personal opinion that the AD is too hasty in his decisions and the athletic teams suffer for it. More experienced counsel would not be amiss in the athletic department.
