4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Though this school isn't the best school in NC when it comes to recognition; it still is well known and offers quality degrees that qualify its students for any job.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel safe on campus, but I know this is probably due to the fact that I would not be a typical target. This being said, from what I have been told and talked about with others, most people feel safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere in some residence halls are great and then the complete opposite in others. As for convenience, none of them are terribly inconvenient but some are a little out of the way.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fan support at ASU is amazing! You go to a game and everyone will be decked out in black and gold and just ready to support their favorite college team.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite thing about school is just the friendships. I love meeting new people and college has helped me to meet so many unique people. This for me is really special because I do not believe you can ever have too many friends!

Athletics: You have to truly be apathetic towards sports and campus culture to not bleed Black and Gold by the end of your time at App. Even though I never had too much of an interest in sports during high school, I really got into the intramurals and loved attending the varsity matches. Football is the primary sport, but basketball, baseball, and soccer are really popular as well. Best of all, going to the games is free, which is something that bigger universities sometimes can't allow due to the large student body. What's more is that the athletes aren't pampered. I befriended a couple athletes from the football, soccer, and tennis teams while at App, and they all were adamant in stating that they had the same course load as all the other students.

Overall Experience: What's great about App is that it's a great combination between a beautiful location and campus, the students and faculty are friendly and approachable, and the class sizes are small so you can really establish good relationships with your instructors. There are schools in North Carolina that are larger and can offer an even wider variety of classes and extra curriculars, but App State hits the sweet spot perfectly between size and offerings. The school is in the mountains, so it's perfect if you love the outdoors and recreational activities, especially camping and winter sports. On top of everything, this school really cares about its students and the environment. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Overall Experience: There is always somewhere on campus that is hiring, and they really encourage students to get jobs and get involved. They will help with setting you up with interviews and internships.

Health & Safety: There are many blue lights on campus. The cops patrol the campus and if you feel unsafe a cop will drive you back to your dorm.

Campus Housing: I'm in White hall, and was recently renovated. I have air conditioning and carpet. The only thing I dislike is having community bathrooms. Other than that the space is a good size and everyone is friendly.

Greek Life: Personally, I have never been for Greek life, however at App they stress the point of community service and giving back. Non-Greek people see Greek people as the same and there isn't much tension between the two ideas.

Athletics: Athletics at App are amazing! They really get the student body involved. I, myself will be involved in the soccer program; intramural and possibly the school team. The football team is great and they stress the fun and enjoyment of the game.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is located in the mountains, and has one of those most gorgeous views from all directions of the campus. There are so many different clubs and organizations that fit almost every students needs and desires. I love how free each person is and how unique and creative everyone is.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The only dorms I would ever consider living in is any near Sanford. Any others are not worthwhile. It takes at least 15 minutes to get anywhere from the other dorms. If you live in the expensive ones, there is nowhere close to go eat. I had neighbors who had speakers next to our wall and they played music for hours. So I got no rest. I tried to report them but it takes three warnings before they get into trouble? I didn't enjoy living on campus at all.

Greek Life: I do not know much about Greek life other than there is a huge rush in the fall.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The only sport that is really focused on is football. I have been to many games and enjoy cheering on my school. GO APP.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love being so close to my home town. My classes are very interesting because of the professors I have had. My school is unique because every single person that goes to APP does their own thing. For instance, some slack line while others eno. It has so far been a wonderful experience.

Health & Safety: Be careful-the police will pull you over if you're going 5 mph over the speed limit but they are lackadaisical when it comes to more important matters.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Appalachian State is a great school, especially if you're interested in pursuing a career in business. There are many internship and full-time opportunities, particularly for accounting students. Many accounting students have job offers before they even graduate. If accounting is not something that interests you, there are still other great departments in the business school and the faculty is top notch.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: East side is the best because most of the dorms are new. West side is not the best since the buildings are dated and rooms are extremely small, especially in Coltrane, Gardner, Bowie, and Eggers. West side dorms are also farther from classes since the majority of classroom buildings are on East campus.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The biggest athletic sport at App State is the football team. Other teams such as basketball, baseball, and soccer have a really hard time getting a measurable amount of students to come to the games.
