I transferred to App State my junior year and I graduate in 2023. The professors are nice and help you understand the materials. The students are always willing to help you out. The campus is clean and very beautiful.
I love the school and a majority of the people here. The area is small but wonderful if you like the mountains. Everything is close and the views are always amazing. A majority of the professors and course work aren't difficult. This school NEEDS more diversity on its campus.
Loved the vibe and the location of this school. It is located in the beautiful smokey mountains in a small hippy town. The culture of the school is very inclusive and kind. One this I didn't like was the bitterly cold winters.
Appalachian State is a wonderful school. Unfortunately, football is a priority of the university, so oftentimes sports trump academics, which includes how they treat their staff. The town of Boone is small and the university is too big for the town, so expect it to be busy. The professors in Reich College of Education are incredible. If you intend to become a teacher, this is the school for you.
As a freshman here at Appalachian State University, I truly can say I love it here. There is a lot of support from faculty, and you can tell that most professors really care about their students. As a freshman, there are a lot of opportunities to get involved including clubs and events. Appalachian State tries hard to make your experience at Appalachian State memorable. Being here, the only thing I can say I wish to see change in is in then dining hall. There are a lot of options, although those options do not change, thus the food becomes unenjoyable and not the best. Other than that, Appalachian State is great and has so much to offer.
Both App and Boone are way too expensive. Rent and food costs are too high and half the professors don't care about teaching. Not saying it's a bad school, it is pretty good, it's just that some administrators/Chancellors make bad decisions.
My program of study at Appalachian is going very well, and most professors have been very friendly and helpful. The front the school puts up about being conservative of resources and climate-friendly is just not as true as they tell us.
It's a decent school overall, if you want a degree in education that is what Appstate is known for so this is the place for you.
While App State is a pretty small campus, you will definitely find a lot of unique and friendly people here! The campus is very inviting as well as beautiful, and it's not hard to find someone who is willing to help out with whatever you need. Do keep in mind that it's getting much more crowded than it used to be with all of the incoming freshmen admitted every year, and make sure that if you plan to apply for off-campus housing, that you start looking into it as soon as possible. Apartment complexes go fast in Boone!
The University itself feels like a home away from home. Slightly secluded and in the most beautiful part of North Carolina, Appalachian is perfect for anyone wanting to attend a school that feels like the set of Gilmore Girls
Appalachian State University has a beautiful campus, and environment surrounding it. I will be attending there spring of 2023, from all the times I've been there, The staff has been nothing but nice. It truly is a wonderful college and I can't wait to attend in the spring.
I thought that the visit helped me determine that this college was someplace that I wanted to attend and receive my degree
I love the majors that are offered and I love the professors. I love the opportunities the Honors College offers. I wish there was more diversity on campus.
The professors are great and the environment and town that is located in is amazing. The only thing I would change is the dining hall.
the community is unmatched, most of the classes i've taken have been really fun and intriguing. I think the campus being a smaller campus makes it less dauntless as well. There's such an amazing community and lots of clubs to join as well.
Once coming onto campus, it felt like home. The environment is welcoming and so are the people. Some teachers do need some improvement when teaching and the chaos after football games need to be limited. It is an open campus with many amazing people. I do wish there was more diversity on the campus and appreciation for diversity.
The curriculum was very rigorous. Working on a distance education program while working full time was difficult with the requirements from ASU. However, I did learn a great deal and the instructors were good.
I could not have asked for a better college experience than what I received from Appalachian State. From the beautiful surrounding Appalachian mountains to every professor putting their students' needs first, App State has so much to offer. The college has a club for any hobby or interest you could think of, but if there is not one, you can create it! The school has a variety of supports to give students the tools and resources they need to graduate.
I love the environment at App State. It is an amazing school if you want to further your education but not break your bank in the process. I feel as though I get the full college experience without having to worry about loosing myself in the process. The only downside is the game nights. Recently there have been some items vandalized due to students going crazy. Other than that, the teachers are amazing and care about you as a person. Your fellow classmates also are always friendly and willing to make friends. I enjoy it here at App State.
More living options and parking options for students because students are going homeless and spending too much money to live in Boone. Professors in the chemistry, anatomy, and science departments need to be under suspicion because there are a lot of teachers that should not be teaching. Having kids fail and drop due to the teacher is not fair especially since we are paying for it. The stadium needs to be expanded for the amount of new students. The campus food is absolutely disgusting, I have gotten physically sick from eating some ideas from campus. Food is just out uncovered and not well cooked, update the whole campus dining halls. General education classes are a waste of time, the "theme" has nothing to do with your major its just a money waste, I think I should not have to be forced to take a class about American history for my degree in Exercise Science. As well as increase parking at the health science building, as it is off campus. Bus systems need to be updated too.
