The whole town of Boone is pretty safe and you can see campus police around

There are plenty of diverse political beliefs, religion and sexual orientation but racially is not as common. It's a predominantly white campus.

Greek life is okay at App, but it is not really a big deal. There are quite a few people that participate in greek life, but it is not the typical "Fratboy-sorostitute" type of lifestyle that is normally associated with it.

There is an amazing public transportation system at Appalachian. The "Appalcart" has many different busses and routes that tend to the needs of the students and also members of the community. It is free for everyone and is a great service.

I am extremely happy with my program. I know I will be able to find a job with a good salary after I receive my Master's degree.

There is every type of cuisine you can think of, ranging for expensive to low cost.

I did not have to do an internship during my undergraduate career.

The process of getting into my Communications Disorders major was very competitive. You must fill out an application and be interviewed. There are prerequisite classes to take before you can apply. Students with high GPAs are more likely to get into the program.

The food has a variety, but may be lacking in quality

Weed is not uncommon at any college and Appalachian is no exception.
College Sophomore 2013-06-20T21:49:14Z
Well it seems to be that the majority of the student body is white.
College Sophomore 2013-06-20T21:44:55Z
I ate at the Central Dining Hall everyday twice a day. The variety is great. As a vegetarian I was worried about options, but there were many places that catered to my needs. There are also markets on campus where you can spend your meal plan money.

Public transportation around Boone is good. The Appalcart runs about every 30 minutes or so and has routes that cover all the main spots in Boone. However, the arrival times posted are not always be reliable. Also the closet airport is in Charlotte.

Guys & Girls:
Outdoorsy and comfortable, but with opportunities for dressing up.

Lots of sororities and fraternities to suit your every desire; however, all of the houses are off campus. So if you are looking for the quad atmosphere, this is not the place for you.

Guys & Girls:
The people here are all very earthy, so if you like that kind of style this is the place for use. However, you've still got all of your clone sorority girls and your beefy spoiled football players, that are always considered attractive. I would say App has a pretty attractive student body.
College Junior 2013-06-16T17:53:18Z
There is food for anyone and everyone, the local cuisine is delicious and the restaurant staff throughout Boone is always friendly to students.
College Junior 2013-06-16T17:51:00Z
Boone is a town that loves and thrives off of the university. The main street always has study related discounts, and the town all but shuts down for athletic events! There is always something to do, mostly outdoor things but there is also shopping and movie theaters!
College Junior 2013-06-16T17:49:24Z
Weed is a very popular past time at Appalachian State, there is a three strikes kind of rule depending on how much you have. Prescription drugs are not tolerated, will result in expulsion/suspension. Alcohol is not as prevalent on campus, because we don't have a Greek quad or any houses.
College Junior 2013-06-13T02:56:37Z
There's not much parking on campus unless you're a professor or a graduate assistant, but most of the parking spots are located on the Appalcart route. Most of the permits are about $200.

There's a lot of snow in the winter, and it's bitterly cold, but the summers here are the best in North Carolina because they're not too hot.

I love Boone, it is a college town in the mountains of North Carolina. The scenery is beautiful and there are a lot of outdoor activities available in close proximity. The students really get excited for football games, and the entire town is supportive of the school.

In hindsight, I would have chosen a different major as I had planned on attending law school. Once I realized how saturated the market was with attorneys I decided against taking on that much debt with no job certainty. It is very difficult to pick a major at such a young age, however I wish the academic advisors would take into account job outlook when offering advice.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
