5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of awesome off campus dining in Boone.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is okay, although it is easy to get away with things in dorms.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am going to school on a GI Bill, so financial aid isn't as applicable to me.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties often, but the few parties I have been to didn't make me want to come back.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I personally enjoy the campus food more than other people I know.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in a very small dorm and the rules are not enforced very well.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's the best school I got into and I have had a great experience. Campus is beautiful but could be flatter. Parking could be more available. Friends and social life are great and I've been introduced to many new and cool things. But if I could get into a school with a better journalism program and the cost was reasonable I would go.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It could be better but Appalachian is one of the better schools in North Carolina so it could be worse.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We've got some good teams in several sports but the glory days of our athletics have been left in the past and attendance is average.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many great choices that are decently close to campus, most have available bus routes to campus nearby, and are for relatively good prices.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many great pizza and sandwich delivery places that will deliver well after midnight. There's also a takeout service that will pick up food from local restaurants that you order and deliver it to you

4 College Freshman

Administration: Overall the administration is happy to let us have our say and our fun. Sometimes they break it up but for them most part they respect us as adults.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive any scholarship money to attend this school

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Fraternity parties are usually a lot of fun but Greek life is fairly small.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some places have great options but overall choices are low and repetitive. All food is very pricey.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Room size is average but rule enforcement is much harsher than necessary and all the doors lock except for the front doors after 8 pm each day. We're adults, not 13 year olds with a curfew

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and I love the laid back atmosphere that App Greek Life has. We are also very dedicated to philanthropy, and the university enforces a strict no hazing policy.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: SO much school spirit, it's unbelievable.

Party Scene: Different social groups/majors have their own different kinds of parties, but you can always rely on the bars for a decent time. Lots of party options.

Campus Food: The food isn't terrible, but when you live on campus and rely on the same few places for food every day, it gets so repetitive. It can also be pricey, and food pricing is very inconsistent in my opinion. They claim to have 25% vegan/vegetarian options, but I don't see how this is true. I prefer to buy most of my food at the Market, but then it's ridiculously overpriced.

Campus Housing: As a freshman, you are randomly placed in one of the many dorm buildings. Personally, I got put it the oldest/worst building, but it's 100% random. There are two sides - East campus and West campus. West campus buildings are older and do not have AC and just aren't as nice in general, but the community among the West residence is a huge perk. East side is has less of a personal community, but they have VERY nice lobbies and study spaces, and the buildings are bigger and air conditioned. The cost of housing depends on where you are randomly placed. It's not too hard to apply for housing online.
