3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy my school and I wouldn't change my decision in attending.

Health & Safety: I always feel safe when I'm on campus. I have walked across campus from the library to my dorm late at night and have felt safe. There is no significant crime on campus that concerns me. The parking lots and walkways are well-lit and there are emergency buttons throughout campus should you need assistance.

Overall Experience: The quality of both courses and professors at Appalachian are very high. The professors are passionate about their classes and make the courses worthwhile. There is a large variety of courses offered, from skiing to the history of the Appalachia area. Class sizes are generally small, and make education more one-on-one and easy to understand.

Campus Housing: The dorm that I live in has great community and is very clean. I have multiple friends in dorms all over campus, and have been able to make new friends through them. The dorm that I live in is the furthest away from most academic buildings, so sometimes making it to class on time is a hassle.

Athletics: There is a large number of students involved in athletics, whether they're varsity or club teams. There is a lot of fan support from not only students and teachers, but the community and alumni. School spirit is very high, especially on game days. Everyone is proud to be a Mountaineer.

Overall Experience: I love being able to attend Appalachian State. I have met some of my best friends there and I love how everyone knows everyone in some way. There is a very strong sense of community and it's a very accepting place. My favorite experiences so far have been football games because everyone gets together to support our team. I would choose Appalachian State every time.

Overall Experience: I have only been here for one semester, but most of my professors were pretty good. They were all knowledgeable in their fields, and while not all of their teaching styles suited me, I still learned a lot. My major is very specific about the courses I have to take, so I do not have a lot of options, but I know that a wide variety of course options exist for other people. Class sizes vary, but most are pretty small; there are not very many large lecture-hall classes here.

Overall Experience: I am a Music Industry Studies major, so my job prospects are hard to quantify. A lot of my future successes will depend on my networking skills. Although my future is a little uncertain because of these facts, I know that the alumni network is fairly strong and the professors in my major have the connections necessary to help me find jobs and internships during and after college.

Campus Housing: I am in one of the newest dorms on campus, and it is excellent. I am living on a floor composed of other members of the Honors College, and our floor is a fantastic, close-knit community. I love my floormates so much and plan to share a suite with a few of them next year.

Greek Life: I honestly do not know much about Greek life on campus. I have been told that the pledging and initiation processes are not very enjoyable, and I have heard that being involved in Greek life is expensive and that there are a lot of restrictions on which Greek organizations can associate with which other Greek associations. I have heard that some Greek organizations provide a healthy community atmosphere for their members, and some organizations participate in community outreach, which I think is admirable. I have also heard that frat parties are fun, although I have not yet been to one.

Athletics: App State has good athletic programs. The football program is the most important one, and our home games receive a lot of support from students and other fans. The program's importance is somewhat controversial, though, as many people suggest that athletic programs receive an unfair share of the school's funds.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am in the Honors College at App State, and I find it to be a great community of students. I have made many new friends, and I am learning a lot from Honors College courses, general education courses, and classes in my program. I also really enjoy the location of the school; the mountain view is peaceful and breathtaking.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Everything was wonderful except one teacher who was not fair or consistent with her grading. She would grade papers from students differently based on different criteria. However she is no longer employeed there so other than that, wonderful opportunity. Already referred co workers.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I took online courses therefore I am only access to the marketing of the sports but not the actual campus participation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: East side dorms are newer and bigger. West side dorms are cramped and old.

Greek Life: Some are just average people and some are snobby. One female Panhellenic hall. Greeks do a lot of philanthropy.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's hard to get the help you need.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Watauga Residential College is the best thing to be a part of but it's changing from the liberal, hippy aesthetic is once subscribed to. Otherwise, App is difficult to work with and deals terribly with housing and sexual assault issues. However, the people are nice and make it feel like a family.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a state school so I feel like job opportunities are fine and depend more on your major.
