4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life here is very low-key. They are very accepting and it doesn't affect relationships with unaffiliated people. Everyone in greek life here gets along with each other, I wouldn't have gone greek if I was anywhere but here.

Administration: The administration here is great, everyone always wants to help you in some way and I don't think it could be better at any other school.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I think that they are alright but they could do more on campus for the students. It would be nice if they could make the preachers on the mall go away.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life does stuff for the campus but you don't know they are there unless they are wearing their letters.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many options, and most places close before 8-9 pm on King Street.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was unable to get any financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorms, it can be either good or bad. Some of the older buildings are very run down while others are nicer to be in. The one thing that is bad is that you have to pay $1.25 to do just one load of laundry.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration is here to help you and keep you safe. They aren't overbearing but they do have rules.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: King Street is great. The town has PLENTY of things to do. Shopping isn't great. If you're an outdoorsy person (hiking, camping, sports, canoeing, etc.) you will never be bored. Also, you're in the mountains. It's gorgeous here.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is pretty good for all students. As an upperclassman, it can be hard to get a spot in a dorm because preference is given to underclassmen, but all in all, the housing is great.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Can be very expensive for not-so-nice housing nearest to campus. The farther you get from campus to nicer and more reasonable it gets.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Did not get any financial aid that I thought I deserved.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of local restaurants to go to!

3 College Freshman

Administration: Quiet hours are way too early on weekdays. They say they're really into making sure there's no underage drinking but that's not true. We can have visitors whenever we want.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It's so friendly, and there are lots of things to do around town.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Everyone at Appalachian has so much school spirit, and the campus is absolutely beautiful. The Blue Ridge Parkway gives several different spots for hiking and sight seeing. King Street there are several cute shops and restaurants. I never feel unsafe. Every one in Boone has been very kind so far.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Besides the football games, our students rarely show up to other sporting events

4 College Junior

Administration: Our campus does an effective job at limiting the negative social activities while trying to promote the positive ones and keeping the peace at the same time!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My parents were the ones doing all of the financial aid so I;m not really sure

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus because I was so close to everything going on, but I needed more time to be alone

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really pay attention to the Greek life, I'm not interested

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Boone is awesome! It's a quiet and small rural town, however there are more commercialized parts of town due to the University and Blowing Rock is a major tourist spot and is only a short drive away. Great for people who enjoy the outdoors.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I've gotten some assistance in the past, and now that I'm in grad school I need more. Folks are helpful, in general.
