2 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is a little difficult to have fun when underage. There is a very strict no alcohol on campus rule, and RA's WILL call the police if you come in intoxicated. Transportation to off-campus parties, which they all are, is very easy but not free. It is still cheap, usually two dollars per person each way, and transportation is always available through the app state beeper facebook page.

Campus Housing: I live on the east side of campus. Most of these dorms are bigger, newer, and have A/C. The dorms on the west side, although cheaper, have no A/C (they do have heat), they are smaller, and get very hot in the summer/early fall time. The housing process is very easy. All freshmen are guaranteed a room on campus if they apply by the deadline.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have not yet chosen a major, but I do know that the university works very hard with graduates to help make sure that they have a job lined up soon after graduation.

3 College Freshman

Technology: The wifi is slow a lot of times, and sometimes will not even connect. This is very frustrating, but is a problem on any college campus. The computer labs are very nice, however are usually full and have many out of order computers. You definitely need to bring your own computer. Tech Services on campus is amazing! They can usually have your computer fixed within a day or two, and even provide you with a loaner computer until yours is done being worked on.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: the appal cart is usually running behind which can cause you to be late to things and have to stand in the cold

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really like the greek life here because most of them are rude

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: weed is a huge things around here. really the only drug you hear about

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: this is a pretty safe campus. you don't hear many bad things going on around here

4 College Freshman

Technology: all of the computers on campus are pretty good the only bad thing is the wireless sometimes

4 College Freshman

Academics: most of the professors I've had so far have been pretty great

3 College Freshman

Administration: some things the school is very strict on but not on others

4 College Freshman

Athletics: we have a lot of support for our football team, game days are very important here

5 College Freshman

Majors: we have one of the best elementary edu programs in the state

4 College Freshman

Majors: we have to student teach as part of our degree and i'm excited

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: i haven't been to many but we have great beepers and ways to get around

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The lady who helped me receive my scholarship no longer works at this school, but she was absolutely great in helping me. There don't seem to be many scholarships for the Biology department, or any scholarships for anyone but prospective students, but I'm still looking and may not have found them yet.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off-campus and probably never will, so I don't know much about it.

3 College Junior

Academics: I haven't had much experience in my major yet.

3 College Junior

Weather: We get snow occasionally and it only moderately influences our class schedule; our school is prepared for and used to snow conditions.

3 College Junior

Majors: So far, the Bio teachers I've had don't know how to teach.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of off-campus choices, and bus routes that can pick you up on-campus and take you where you need to go. There are lots of fast-food places, but there's also some more local places that the students love to hang out at.

3 College Junior

Technology: The internet is very slow sometimes and won't always let you connect to it. To this day, I still am only able to connect to the "Guest Network", which probably will explain why the network isn't as reliable.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I currently live in Frank Hall and am a part of the Residential Learning Community: Art Haus. Frank was recently renovated and our rooms have a sink in our room- something I was not expecting but greatly appreciate! I've been in Bowie and compared to ours...let's just say they have a very college feeling dorm. The cost is affordable, and doesn't exceed what you would be paying every month in rent (in fact, in every dorm, it's still about 200 dollars cheaper). Living on Stadium drive is very lively, and on game days, tailgaters are here bright and early. Not a problem if you;re an early riser or plan on going to the game, but a little noisy if you're trying to sleep in. All of the dorms are relatively old, but the furniture is not falling apart and I'm definitely not complaining, because there is plenty of room for both my roommate and I to be in here at the same time. People of my floor have become my best friends- and I love being able to talk to everyone around you. Finding a dorm is way easier if you choose an RLC (also makes gaining friends easier because you have common interests).

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Being an out-of-state student, financial aid was one of the first things I looked into. App has been very helpful for the whole process, they are very understanding and want you to come here. Of course, I would want my loans to be a little bit less, but I knew I wanted to come to school here, and I'm glad I did. I would recommend DO NOT procrastinate on getting your information into the school- the quicker you can look at the numbers, the quicker you can decide if you actually want to go to school here. The financial aid office still emails me with support or helps me if I have questions.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: As far as I know, the best parties happen far off campus. Parties meaning small to medium get-togethers. Clubbing is limited to one location on campus called Char, which is a restaurant during the day, and takes anyone 18+. I think you have to travel pretty far to find actual night clubs when you're in this area. We have a large system of Beepers (payed students who are willing to drive you just about anywhere for the right amount) and they also have a facebook page that is really helpful for getting back on campus. I don't think a lot of the students here come to App for the nightlife, and that's one reason why it may seem lacking. There is always someone throwing a party though- it's just all about finding a ride. Also, during the summer months, many App students leave and the town of Boone doesn't need 100 clubs for the vacationers who come to the area. People who like to hang out will find other people who like to do that too- there just hasn't been too many ragers that aren't broken up by the cops within an hour.
