There are Mac Computers everywhere!! They're in the library, computer labs, classrooms, it literally is like the staple of App. I personally do not know how to work them, but I am forced to learn (Im a PC User)!! Pretty much all computers are in excellent shape. Every classroom has the fancy projectors that hang from the ceiling. Printing is easy, you use your AppCard for them and its really cheap to print .03 cents a page!! Now, the internet is a little sketch in some dorms...but most public areas are fine. I suggest bring an Ethernet cord just in case. Life is also a LOT easier if you have your own laptop.

All of the professors are very excited about what they teach and know what they are talking about. It really makes you want to learn it. Occasionally you will get the boring monotone teacher but that's to be expected.

Most clubs are very accessible and and are 18+. But they are usually hit and miss.

Anyone interested in a dietetic internship knows it is a long and annoying process. Be prepared to spend a lot of money and a lot of time. Also know that less than 50% of people get one.

I love nutrition. It's my passion and my love. Nutrition combines both what we love-food- and what we know- science. Internships are required so be prepared.

As a future RD we spend one year acting as an RD. It is really very cool that we get to practice before we actually have to be RD's.

I love App States Nutrition program. The professors are really supportive and the environment is fun to live in. However, if you are not a fan of rural environments stay away. If I could do it again I would find a way to get in state tuition. It is possible just takes effort. I am not concerned about finding a job. Nutrition is a growing field!

Freshman have a very hard time getting parking spaces with the University, and when you do you end up way off campus. In order to get to your car as a freshman with parking through the university you have to take the bus system. However, if you buy parking from a private seller around campus you can get a good parking spots for a decent price.

I love how calm and inviting Boone is. The town really loves their students and have many ways to show their appreciation. The majority of the people living in Boone may be students but it maintains their small town feel, especially through King Street.

I have a unique situation in which i do not receive financial aide anymore, the office is efficient, the workers are helpful, and the responses are quick. I cannot comment on the aide itself.

Cutting edge technologies in every department i have had the fortune of visiting or having class in. App State has one of the more user friendly online systems i have had to use through my many years of school

There are people from all over the world and places i have never even herd of. Sports, clubs, organizations are blossoming with diversity.

Most dorms on the West Side (Coltrane, Gardner, Justice, Eggers, Bowie)are dumps. The good ones are App Heights, Mountaineer (up a large hill, pretty far from everything) and the best(location wise) is Newland. Most of the East side has been remodeled recently so they are all pretty good.

My classes have all given me a great coverage of the topic and I have been fairly successful

I havn't goteen into my major yet so I can't really say but the teaching program at App had a great reputation

Lots of kids use around campus but there's not a lot of pressure

Appalachian tries very hard to ensure that diversity is a staple at our university and to promote growth within the diverse community. Appalachian has held several campus wide events focused on diversity and diverse awareness. The down side to this aspect at App State is that while there is a big call to awareness the actual population of diverse pupils at Appalachian, while growing, is still a very small portion of the population represented at the university.

Football is huge part of the campus life at AppState, and the surrounding town of Boone. However, there could definitely be more support for our other sports such as basketball and baseball.

The weather in Boone always keeps you on your toes. It can be warm and beautiful one week, and snowing the next. As a matter of fact, when I woke up this morning it was 55 and raining. Now there is 6 inches of snow on the ground.

Football games are incredible-huge crowds and a great team. The athletic department itself brings this grade down significantly. It is my personal opinion that the AD is too hasty in his decisions and the athletic teams suffer for it. More experienced counsel would not be amiss in the athletic department.

I am extremely happy with the quality of education I have received thus far at Appalachian State. I feel like I am being trained extremely well to be a professional in my field. For the first time in my life as a student, I feel like I am actually receiving the type of education that will benefit me after I graduate. I am 100% confident I made the correct choice for my own personal education. After I graduate with my Masters, I plan on pursuing a job in Human Resource Management. I am confident I can find a job, but it will be difficult considering most HR jobs require several years of HR experience.

We will be required to doan internship during the summer in between our first and second year. I am greatly looking forward to completing the internship and gaining direct experience working in my field. I am a little concerned about finding an internship considering I have to consider my financial situation while still finding something that will be a valuable learning experience. While I have slight concerns, I also have no doubt that I will find one with due effort.

There are two dining halls. The main hall has a large selection to choose from: salad bar, mexican, sushi, camp out style, etc. The other dining hall serves something different every night and is a mini buffet. Prices are more than students think is fair but the meal plan will cover it as long as you don't go overboard.

Health & Safety:
There are some minor crimes but that is not to be expected at a college. The campus poice send out an email alert if there has been a crime of any sort. The campus also has an alert system for emergencies which is tested once a month so you know it works. It can be heard anywhere on campus.

ASU offers a wide variety of classes. The professors are knowledgable and usually available outside of class. Registration can be a pain but gets easier as you progress.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
