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.

Diversity: There less than 15% diversity on the campus, however religious wise there is a great diversity of people. People are for the most part are accepting and friendly.

Drug Safety: There isn't much drug use on campus. Its not publicized and most people don't do drunks.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They are very helpful, and want you to do your best in college. They approachable and are willing to help whenever you need it. There are so many different options of general ed classes and a variety of selection within the campus of interest.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

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.

3 College Junior

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.

3 College Senior

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.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: App State is a great school, but Boone is a small town so its not for everyone. There is only a Walmart and a few grocery stores-no nicer 'big box' stores. I honestly miss the conveniences of living in a bigger town.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our professors, courses, class styles and sizes are very good and are raked pretty high up. I've had all good experiences with my classes so far. My professors are always willing to help and will be very accomadating to other students who are going through a hard time. The classes are challenging but the professors make sure you know the subject and give you a normal amount of course work.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm not certain about the jobs in most areas of study but we have lots of resources that students can go to and ask any questions they may have. I know that in my area of study business, app states business college it's top notch. Most individuals who graduate with a business degree get a job after college. The career help center is incredibly helpful and can help students fine great internships and future jobs connections.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There isn't much crime on campus but sexual assault does play a role on occasion. There were several instances of sexual assault during my freshman year. There is always a chance for a crime to happen on campus although there hardly ever is. I feel safe on campus walking around at night and I feel safe around town as well. We have campus police that are on patrol as well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at app state is pretty average for most housing. Most of the housing and apartments are close to campus which is nice! The dorm that I lived in my freshman year was one of the nicest ones. It had new bathrooms, very large windows, lots of space and it is close to the cafe. there are many on campus options for students ranging from dorms, apartments, and I new set of apartments coming called the standard which is supposed to be extremely nice! That will be available in a couple months.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can answer this question first hand because I am a participant in Greek life and see all the good things we do for our community. Greek life it's very different at App State than it is at other large university's because although we compete between each other, we work together more and never bad talk another sorority. We try to lift each other up in everything we do, and help one another out with community service and fundraising. We all live in a sorority hotel close to campus with each floor being a different sorority. I have a lot of friends that are in Greek life and some that are not. Those who are not in Greek life view us in a good light!
