Athletics: Football is HUGE at App! EVERYONE loves to watch them play. Definitely a highlight of appalachian, and the games are such a blast. Baseball and Softball are pretty huge too. Varsity sports are well liked. Basketball not as much, but they still have a large support from the school. Intramural sports are amazing and well liked and well supported. Definitely be a part of it!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Appalachian State Football is the best thing to happen to ASU. Football season is the absolute best. You get to tailgate, meet new people, and just have a blast. It is an electric atmosphere. School spirit is through the roof! Plus, The Rock is huge and loud.

Athletics: We're located in the south, so naturally football is the biggest thing around, the stands are always packed, the entire town becomes full of fans, & the student section is always energetic, & sometimes a little crazy!
