Just don't try to park anywhere on campus the day of a home football game!..They won't even let you "drive through" to drop off someone, or their stuff, at the dorms closest to the stadium.
But honestly, if you live on campus, you do not need a car.

The campus police are always around to help out students and stay on call at Appalachian State University. They are not lenient about illegal activities involving students on campus and even have a holding cell where intoxicated individuals can sober-up while being held open for anyone.

The dorms are a great place for freshman year at Appalachian State University, but after one year they are far too small and close for comfort to stay in. The options for living on campus are very limited for upperclassmen in terms of space, but upperclassmen have first pick of dormitories including apartment style suites.

Specifically in my courses for Psychology the required classes seem to be very relevant to my intended major however my main Psych teacher is a graduate student who has never taught before and therefore grades extremely harshly. The plus side is that she uses very up-to-date technology that keeps me interested in class.

Although Appalachian State University offers very great programs in a very relaxed environment, sometimes grading is very harsh and there are limited options for making up missed work.

The off-campus dining options near Appalachian State University are the same as most places. There is fast food restaurants such as Burger King, McDonald, and Wendy. There is also Chilis, Applebees, and Cracker Barrel

The price for housing is high. The good thing about it is that you can walk everywhere since most of the store are close by.
College Senior 2013-02-24T19:14:35Z
There is many outdoor activities such as hiking and tubing. Downtown has a awesome pizza place and many store with unique things!!

I haven't needed, but my friends complain on how slow it is and have trouble communicating with the office in charge of it.

The reason why it is so terrible is that it is costly to get a parking spot, and there is not enough handicapped spots.

We have bus system that rivals other universities and not only works on campus, but throughout the town of Boone. It sometimes does not run on time though which can be frustrating when it is your primary mode of transportation.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-19T02:33:47Z
All of the facilities are state-of-the-art and are mostly recent additions to the school.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-19T02:30:58Z
There are very few nightclubs in Boone, however, if you go with the right people, you can make a good time of it.

Has some variety, but it is a major elementary education school.

Guys & Girls:
There are several styles and different types of people are there. Everything from Greek life to new reusable energy/ green people.

West side dorms are lacking in the amenities that the east side dorms have.

There are tons of computer labs on campus and the library also has a lot of computers available for students to use. Students can even check out laptops while in the library.

Health & Safety:
I have never once felt unsafe at Appalachian. Boone is a small and cozy town where nothing ever really seems to happen. The University Police are always available. Dorms can only be entered if you have a card swipe and live in that building, so the security overall is really good.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T01:39:14Z
Since Boone is such a small town, the distance from campus to really anywhere in Boone isn't too terribly bad, but the cost is kind of pricey. They have a decent selection, but you really need to do your research on the appartments because if not, they can jip you of money.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T01:25:40Z
I really love my major and the classes I've had to take for it so far! My professors are really passionate about what they are teaching us and I've learned a good bit considering I'm still a Freshman.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T01:20:28Z
I'm not involved with the Greek life but my roommate is. She does go to a lot of mixers but she says it's not like the stereotypical girls you see in the movies.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T01:15:51Z
Make sure to rate your professor. You won't always get into the classes you want or may need at the time.
College Sophomore 2013-02-08T01:14:16Z
It has been great! Close to classes and a meal plan!
College Junior 2013-02-01T21:59:45Z
Same food every day gets old. Eating Chick Fil A 5 times a week isn't exactly the best.
College Junior 2013-02-01T21:56:23Z
As a freshman, parking is terrible. Upperclassmen get priority and take up the worthwhile spots on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
