Campus Housing: good dorms except freshman year

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: no greek housing on campus

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am about to start my first year of grad school as a music major, so right now it's hard to give a fair judgement on Appalachian State. So far everything is great! I'm just in need of financial assistance for the upcoming year. Everyone that I have talked to has been very helpful, so I am sure that my experience here will be one that I will not forget.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The students and staff at ASU work hard to prevent sexual assault, and they provide many valuable resources to educate students and help victims.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are more updated than others, but all dorms are great for college students!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm new to the campus and haven't had much time to explore, but the athletic facilities are fantastic and there is a lot of spirit across campus and throughout the town for our sports teams!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone has been so extremely kind and welcoming during my time at orientation. The student leaders have been helpful and knowledgeable, and the beautiful campus itself has been very inviting.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team is great along with many of the other sports that Appalachian offers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Every time I set foot on this school's campus I find something new that I love about it. Everyone is welcoming and alway's helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my classes. Mostly liberal leaning in all aspects, but have found that some are willing to have open dialogue and truly discuss different issues from more than one side. Variety of subjects and styles to accommodate various learning styles.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: No real experience with this so no real comments

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have not had very many encounters with safety, but those I have have been okay. I am not able to adequately judge whether or not situations are handled in the best way possible.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in a much nicer dorm than others on campus (LLC). I have enjoyed the residential living community that I am a part of. As a part of that community, my dealings with housing have been fairly smooth. Loved my RA(s). A little far from campus though.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't have personal experience so no real comments

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Big on football. Facilities are good. Wide variety of differing sports for students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed the people I have found. Easily found where I fit in. Good professors so far. Plus being in the mountains is one of the greatest things for an outdoors lover.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't had any experience with campus crime on campus, although I'm not blind to it and I am aware that it is there. I felt unsafe because of someone's significant other this last year, and I was given so many resources and people to talk to. My RA and RD became involved immediately and passed the information on to campus police and a counselor for intrapersonal violence. Everyone was very supportive and I had several appointments and meetings to discuss the matter, and it was not even my relationship that I was speaking on behalf of. From my experience, I feel very safe on campus and I feel that the safety of others is highly regarded by all those in charge. I was given the direct cell number of my RD and the head of intrapersonal violence, just in case something were to happen with the person I felt threatened by.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I'm choosing to be on campus for two years because of the experience I had my freshman year. I met a lot of my best friends in my dorm and I had the greatest time. I lived in Eggers Hall, which is one of the smallest along with Gardner, Coltrane, and Bowie, but I had a lot of stuff in that small room and never really had any issue. I made use of storage bins and labels and once I unpacked, I was good to go for the year. The cost is fairly reasonable and the cleaning crew came everyday to clean the bathrooms and hallways. I'm a germaphobe that never felt overwhelmed. I was nervous at first about the community style bathrooms, but I never had any issue with not having a shower available or anything of the sort. The housing application was short and easy, and there's a high demand for on-campus housing because of the opportunities. Many of my friends are involved with RHA and have an incredible time, and all of the RAs in my building were a great resource for anything I needed throughout the year.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life on Appalachian's campus is unlike any other North Carolina school. It's smaller, more lowkey, and more accepting. Anyone and everyone can get involved, but if you don't, you'll most likely know and be friends with all the same people. However, the day you get a bid will be one of the most memorable days of your life. On that day, sorority woman will meet 100+ other girls that become their sisters - a concept that was foreign to me at first being an only child. They welcome you with welcome arms (literally, there's a lot of hugging) and celebrate you and your values. Greeks show their support for other Greeks and their organizations with all different campus and off-campus activities. Greek life doesn't make up a high percent of the undergraduate population, but it has made up many incredible, unforgettable experiences for me.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not apart of athletics on campus, but I attended every football game as well as several basketball and baseball games. It's incredible to see how quickly the stands fill up at our games. I lived in a dorm off of the parking lot of the football stadium, and every game day was an incredible experience. Parents and alumni come to tailgate hours before the game and fill the lot with a sea of gold and black. They know the chants and the songs, and offer their food to the students passing by. The student section was full at every game - sun, rain and snow alike. Club sports and intramurals have schedules that work with nearly everyone and have great support on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Graduating will be impossible because I never want to leave. The entire campus is full of smiling faces who love their school and their peers, who are willing to make a difference in their community whether it be through student government, philanthropic events, or making a change in policy so that every student has equal rights, such as with House Bill 2. From the moment I stepped on campus for a tour, it has felt like home to me and I have loved every second of it. I became apart of Greek Life and have felt undying support from everyone around me. When I was having a crisis and felt like my major wasn't for me anymore, even though I've been dead-set on it my whole life, I spoke with amazing academic advisors that were able to talk me through it and show me the way. My professors have been easy to approach with questions and offer office hours by the plenty. They have been willing to meet with me outside of class if their hours haven't worked for me. Before a major paper, I have had several professors that were willing to read my paper in its entirety to discuss what needed to be fixed before the due date. The writing center is an option as well and they work with you and are able to help with all different fields. My laptop decided to crash on me during midterm week and the tech center on campus fixed my laptop that was declared "unfixable" by Best Buy in just two days and for a very fair price. It is hard to express how absolutely incredible Appalachian is until you experience it and see for yourself. Not only does everything about the campus and the people on it make Appalachian one of the best universities, but it is situated in a beautiful place that brings me happiness every time I drive up the mountain.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My courses have been very enjoyable, especially due to my professors' passion about the topics they teach. Almost all of my instructors are instructors I would recommend to incoming freshman, especially in the English and foreign language department.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would rate the prospects as very high. During certain points in the semester, a career day is hosted where different businesses and associations come to campus to allow students to explore possibilities for their major post graduation. While I have not applied for any internships so far, many of my fraternity brothers have, and have expressed a lot of enjoyment for the opportunities they were given.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security on campus is good, and I undoubtedly feel safe walking around campus no matter what time it is. While there have been cases of assault, they have been very far and few between.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My freshman year of on campus living had many positives as well as many down sides. On a positive note, my hall had the largest room space for freshman on campus, however, the building itself was very old, and not as furnished as other halls on campus. Due to the size of the hall itself, it was hard to form close friendships with people on my floor with the exception of my roommate. While the size of the room was very spacious, I would recommend that freshman attempt to apply for a more furnished dormitory.
