I love not only the scenery but the atmosphere at App State. All of the people are super nice and helpful with anything you could possibly need. As a music major, all of my professors are amazing. They know exactly how to help you and they are so amazing and knowledgeable.

App State is a great school, but Boone is a small town so its not for everyone. There is only a Walmart and a few grocery stores-no nicer 'big box' stores. I honestly miss the conveniences of living in a bigger town.

Appstate is one of the best colleges in North Carolina. We have an awesome football team, incredible students, very passionate teachers, wonderful Greek life, which I get to be a part of and give back to my community, and most importantly, the education that you recive while you are at appstate is top notch and worth the work. What makes my school so unique is that in everything that we do sustainable development is at the root of it all. I've learned all about SD and how I can make our world a better place with its principles. I've made great friends through Greek life and good connections with my teachers that I know will be valuable resources to me in the future. Over all my experience so far at App State has been awesome!
