4 College Freshman

Athletics: football at appalachian, nothing more to say

3 College Freshman

Weather: it gets cold waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard in the spring semester

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is not spread out, which makes it easy to get to a class across campus without being late. Being at Appalachian State, it never gets to hot outside, but there still are beautiful days.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options for ethnic, local and healthy food and reasonable prices.

2 College Student

Parking: There are very limited spaces if you don't pay, and enforcement is strict. Walking or the bus is the best option.

3 College Student

Campus Dining: It has improved since 2007 both in facilities and quality. There are a lot of options.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are not uncommon, but peer pressure seems minimal, policies are enforced, and it is generally a positive and safe scene.

3 College Student

Weather: Winters can be hard, but it is great to have all four seasons. Fall, spring and summer are amazing, and there are plenty of opportunities to be outdoors.

3 College Student

Transportation: While Appalcart is not the cleanest, there are many buses that travel most of the needed routes, always providing students with a way to get to class.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The campus security and police are very committed and it helps to minimize offences on campus.

3 College Student

Athletics: Team sports are a hugely popular activity at ASU, but I am not athletic nor interested in competitive sports so did not spend much time being involved in them.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not the best, but good enough.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I could just enter the program with ease.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I had a 4.0 GPA for three semesters... No scholarship offers.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: A lot of diversity, but really everyone is kind and has that "don't care what I look like" vibe - in a good way. Not really worried about materialistic things, but then again you'll see some people that are. It's just a laid back, mountain, hippie atmosphere! Similar to Asheville, if you've been there.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Boone is small, so again if you love the club and things along that line, there isn't a ton of options. It can be fun if you have friends and enjoy just going out for a good time, no matter where you are. People host parties often on the weekends, especially after big games! Boone is a cool place, so it's just fun to chill!
