Appalachian State University Reviews
Review Appalachian State University
I love App State! The mountains are beautiful and it's close to home for me. The people are friendly and down-to-earth. Although people are friendly, opposing and more conservative views aren't necessarily accepted. Although I am a minority, I still enjoy going to school there, and the education is very thorough and most professors are helpful and want their students to succeed.
I am currently a second semester freshman at Appalachian State University and I love it here. At the beginning of the school year I did not enjoy the school that much since I am not into the outdoors that much, but over the course of time I began to participate in outdoor activities more and make connections with people who also felt the same way about App. However, after a few weeks of being here I have grown to feel more comfortable and to love the school. After being here one semester I found myself missing Appalachian and eager to come back to the school for my second semester. I have enjoyed being here since and am looking forward to the next four years here!
I feel that Appalachian State University is a college that accepts everyone no matter of their background or disabilities. I have had emergency medical circumstances to arise and the professors were more than willing to work with me. The price of tuition is one of the cheapest in North Carolina as well as the book rental program that is offered to the students. So far, despite the health issues I have faced while attending ASU, I would say my experience has been great so far!
