4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I lived off campus and loved it. There are options, but they fill up very quickly.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options for different kinds of food.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I'm a mom and I don't go to parties.

4 College Junior

Administration: I'm not much of a partier and always attend classes, so I can't really speak to how punishments are.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I've received scholarships easily for my program of study without any hassle.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Some options are good, some aren't.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I've only lived off campus.

College Senior

Administration: I don't have enough experience with campus administration to provide an accurate review

2 College Senior

Scholarships: The system is very unorganized, the financial aid staff often have mis-matched data, and they are impossible to reach. You are not allowed to speak with a financial aid counselor on the phone when you call even if they are available - you have to leave a message and you will be called back or you can wait in the office during their limited office hours. Advice would be to start as early as possible to give them time to work out all of the kinks in their paperwork system.

Campus Food: There are multiple dining options and most of the ones I have experienced were great.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived off-campus for the duration of my time at Appalachian State University.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is reasonably priced but fills up quickly. You have to move quickly to get a good apartment or house.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is great. My friends and I try to limit ourselves to only going out to eat once a week because of the cost. However, the food off-campus is very good so its hard.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus believes that it is strict but many things go on behind closed doors that they do not know about.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't partied this year so I'm unsure of the party scene firsthand. However, I have many friends who are very familiar with it and they tell me the best parties but also the worst. I know from them that the rugby team has the best parties and the cottages always get busted. ALE is always at the bars and they don't hesitate to take their job seriously by arresting underage drinkers.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid didn't really help. I don't think my family received their fair amount of financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is bland and there isn't much variety. I shop at the market to eat food that isn't fried or carb loaded.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love just how close my dorm is to my classes. My dorm also has AC and heating, which is a great thing to have when you live in the mountains.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is getting bigger at Appalachian and I am not a huge fan of it. Too basic.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not much into sports but the gyms on campus seem to have a good environment.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Boone is a small and rural town, so finding housing off campus that is quality and not a overcrowded apartment complex is harder. Especially if you're like me and have no form of transportation, no direct bus route(not that it would matter with the Appalcart) and live five miles from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's alright, unless you're a broke college student and can only afford the dollar menu at the plethora of fast food joints. I will say though, cookouts dollar menu has saved me from eating ramen a number of times.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Considering how many students get caught with alcohol and drug charges, I don't feel like the options available help any of the students. Police in this town are outrageous and I personally feel like they're out to fine all of us college students.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I definitely enjoy the party scene and have hosted some parties of my own. In my hosting experiences, it's hard to keep a lot of random people from showing up at your house, especially if the event is posted on facebook. On one party occasion we invited fifty people and ended up having some 200+ in our house. Legends is a great place because of the artist selection but it is still campus policed so you have to be careful if you're not sober. I think the best place for parties is way off campus because every college student is worried about the consequences, especially from the school, of dealing with the police.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarships are literally my bread and butter. Most of my financial aid consists of needs-based grants which I have to use to cover all my off-campus housing and living expenses on my own. My parents don't support me so the financial aid that I recieve keeps me alive but I often stress and worry about budgeting it well because I recieve it all at the beginning of the semester. Living off a lump sum, when I have so many expenses, is more difficult than it seems.
