5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Hobb Nobb and Comeback shack are the bomb.com

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I lovr my apartment. I am right beside campus

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Been to better is all

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They are strict for the right reasons

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's actually really good we are lucky

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Quite modern, clean living spaces

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, so I can't rate the housing.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Going to football basketball games were probably my favorite part. But I attended a couple volleyball games and they were always fun to watch. I am big on sports and grew up in Eastern North Carolina, so ECU has crazy pride in their football team. We have good school spirit at AppState but if it are better I think it would affect people in a more positive way.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is still convenient, many available spots in apartments, the costs are average and some are lower, parking is tight because it's a small town but it isn't impossible to find a parking spot.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of off campus dining was never a problem. There are many flavorful restaurants in downtown Boone that have variety and give visitors a taste of the diversity you can find in the High Country.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Appalachian State University wants the safe and friendly atmosphere that parents want their kids experiencing, and although college students will be drinking or doing drugs the campus is pretty strict to keeping things under control.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Applying for financial aid was simple and I got the financial support I needed for the school year. Just make sure you check your emails and once you get an email from Financial Aid, accept your award as soon as possible.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I was pleased with on campus dining. It can get repetitive but there are a lot of options, you just have to find what you like. I really liked WrAPPs and the sandwich bar in downstairs central, wraps are healthy and filling. I loved how Mcalister's was at Trivette right across from my dorm, so I got that a lot. Eating a la carte is pricey but there are more options!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is lively and it always seemed enjoyable. The rooms were cozy and sure they were close but being in a dorm at App State was fun because there is such a big community on each and every floor. My floor was my family! I loved it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's like Greek Life anywhere else. Nothing spectacular. It's a slight divide between Greeks and non-Greeks, but no real tension

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Most sports events on campus have a good turn out. The facilities are great, and spread across campus for easy access for all students.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It depends on what agency you go through to find off campus housing. There are student apartments off campus, but they lack variety. The cost is fairly low, Boone is a college town.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's not my scene, but you can find a party on most Friday nights. The cottages, that where to go.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Boone is a great place for local, fresh foods. Most restaurant get their produce and such from local farmers.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Definitely get outside scholarships as well as financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love that I only pay for what I get, my meal plan is like a credit card, not the traditional swipe system. I love the markets, and using my meal plan at vending machines. But the food gets repetitive, and there are only two coffee shops, both on east side

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything is extremely close if you live on campus. The people are very nice. You always hear about the Appalachian family, join clubs if you want to experience that.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I still live in a dorm, but I plan on living in an apartment next year. I look forward to the added freedom. I like how a lot of the apartment complexes in Boone are near bus stops. That way, I can take the bus to campus instead of trying to find a parking place.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have never been to a party at App yet. I know we have them and I have friends that enjoy going to them.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I grew up in a small town, so I love all the restaurants Boone has to offer! Cookout, Cracker Barrel, and IHop are my three favorites!
