Appalachian State University Reviews
I just transferred to Appalachian State University from Florida and I couldn't be happier with my experience. The campus is stunning throughout all four seasons and all of my professors have been amazing. There are over 200 clubs to choose from and thriving student life on and off-campus. As a college town, Boone is always lively and has a variety of fun things to do inside and outside. However, nothing beats the breathtaking views of the Appalachian Mountains. Overall, my experience at Appalachian State has been nothing but great and I can't imagine attending any other school!
I think Appalachian is great! They seem to try and tend to each student as best they can, and provide tons of resources. The small college town has its pros and cons. I come from a city so adapting to the lack of shopping centers, smaller roadways, and snow was a challenge. I would say the availability of things off campus and things to do for someone who isn't outdoorsy is pretty minimal. The parking is also a hassle as is traffic in general at times. Overall, it is a great school!
I went to Appalachian for two years and I adored it. It is by far one of the most beautiful campuses in North Carolina. You're surrounded by breathtaking mountain views anywhere you look. It's a very progressive college as well. The students and staff are excepting of every race, gender, sexual orientation, and religion of a person. The staff are phenomenal and most classes are set in smaller group setting making it easier to have a connection with the students and professor. I highly recommend Appalachian to any student considering or not!
