Athletics: Varsity sports are a big part of Appalachian. I was actually able to work with both varsity and club athletes, and all were very passionate about playing for their school. The varsity programs just completed a new training facility that has a really nice strength training facility.

Campus Food: Food places on campus are above average. They are convenient and spaced around campus. Also we have a delicious menu that varies from a salad all the way to junk food that every college student loves. Also there are various food services around campus that allow you to use your meal card for those late night snacks.

Athletics: Our football team is amazing, not only is the tail gate one of the most entertaining things in the world to do, but our football team is awesome. This year we tied for SoCo Champs, and also made it to the playoffs. Our community comes together for football games and we all come together as one, supporting the school we love.

Campus Housing: Living on campus as a freshman/sophomore is definitely the right decision, not only are you closer to classes, but also you have the opportunity to meet many people that impact your life. Dorm wise, east side is much nicer than the west side, but east side is very close knit. Mcallister's is by far the most delicious thing on campus to eat, along with the delivery services that this university provides. I love it!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We get automatic crime alert updates which tell us whenever there is a crime reported, and I maybe get one of those a month at most. I feel very safe here. There are cops everywhere, but they aren't out to get college students in trouble. They are there keeping us safe. There are emergency stations all over campus. I've never felt the need to use them though. I've never had any issue with health or safety concerns while being a student here. It's a very safe community overall in my opinion.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is very unpredictable. ALWAYS have an umbrella !

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: some of the dorms are really nice and big and others are crappy and small

4 College Sophomore

Majors: App has a multitudes of Majors and they are very helpful with helping you find internships

4 College Sophomore

Technology: We have a lot of computers for student and you can even rent a computer for a couple of hours and bring it back if you need one

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I see cops often and Know that they can be reached by these call booths just for cops and are placed all around campus. the cops are there to help and do there job but they are not out to get you.

Diversity: First off, I'm going to go ahead and say that there's more to diversity than race. And as far as that goes, App is awesome -- there's a really good and active GLBTQ center and club, and I've certainly never had any issues or felt any negativity at all because of being queer.

As far as race/ethnicity goes, there's a lot of white people here. However, there's tons of acceptance for those who aren't, and what racism I've seen has all been stupid and non-intentional (like everyone turning to look at the Jewish person when the Holocaust is mentioned, or assuming that the tall black guy is on the basketball team). And the Multicultural Center is great and has a lot of fun and interesting programs to help people become more aware of other cultures, which is awesome.

Campus Food: There are a few different dining areas available, but the food choices are still very repetitive and just not that interesting. Plus, it can be hard to find an option that isn't either gross or fried. There are vegetarian options, which is nice, but they kind of suck, and often still don't seem very healthy -- someone needs to introduce these people to some good tofu recipes, or maybe Indian cuisine. The "ethnic" selections are a joke. I've only actually seen Mexican and Asian, but they're not very good; the Mexican is okay, but the Asian is horrible. There's usually "stir fried" beef and chicken, both of which are dry and also super sweet. Yuck. It's also really hard to find anything that's not loaded with carbs. I have a medical thing that makes it hard for me to have too much bread, pasta, or rice, and while I know that my issue is not the standard, the sheer amount of carbs that are often the only thing that is available is not healthy for the general population either.

3 College Junior

Administration: It's not that strict, really. It's more that if the police or faculty have to notice you, you'll regret it, but as long as you're not obnoxious about it, you'll be fine. They're not going to come knocking on your door searching for drugs or alcohol unless you're stupid and give them reason to.

5 College Junior

Majors: I'm in the anthropology department, and it's fantastic. The professors mostly have PhD's, so they really know their stuff, but even though the're busy doing actual professional stuff, they teach their own classes (instead of pawning them off on TA's), and are friendly and approachable.

Transportation: Appalcart is free and takes you anywhere inside Boone. The bus to the Charlotte airport is moderately priced, as well.

4 College Junior

Administration: I gave an A not for it being extremely strict, but for it being the right amount of strict. The school doesn't really but into the students' personal lives unless they are risking their safety or that of others.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There isn't a lot of variation in the menu of each venue, but there are several different venues to choose from. Lots of kids eat chick fil a at the cafeteria, but there are also home cooked options, as well. The best part is the two markets you can shop at with your meal plan.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you want weed, you will have no problem finding it. Same goes with moonshine

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: it sucks. the dorms are s***. they smell like s***

1 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking at school is a nightmare. As a freshman, it's awful trying to get to your car. It costs a fair amount of money and when they are out, they are out. Other people sell parking passes but they can get pretty expensive. It is also terrible at football games. Appalachian State needs a lot more parking. Tickets are given out constantly.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Not a lot of shopping but a very friendly environment. If you like hiking, water falls, mountains, snowboarding, snow in general and snow sports, Appalachian State is a great school for you.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are constantly cops everywhere on campus so you feel pretty safe. Sometimes you do hear of rape or robberies but it's not often.

Health & Safety: I wish there was more emergency phones around campus or places to go in case of an emergency.
