I wasted time and money here, my expectationsQuite BrightComputer Science
I wasted time and money here, my expectations were a lot higher than the reality that presented itself upon arrival. No Greek life, greek houses etc. A lot of drug activity, and the staff of this university will not really care to help you if you are in need. We had 9 deaths this school year, and I blame the poor faculty for this 100%. I think the campus is beautiful and the people are generally nice. I am transferring out of this school after this semester to attend another school. A total disappointment, since this was my first choice in North Carolina. Beware that if you are not a outdoorsy person, into drug use, or into football (because that's the only sport students care about here), go elsewhere!! I hope if you are reading this.. you do not judge ASU by its face value. It is a pretty campus do not get me wrong.. but if I had to do this over again.. I would have never attended here (and ASU was my top choice). Good luck to you!

App State is the best school in theBrightOther
App State is the best school in the universe. The town is perfect to host a college atmosphere- small enough to be a small mountain town but big enough to stay consistently exciting...we even get some pretty big bands like SOJA roll through here on occasion. I have never met more amazing people than I have here- the students and the locals are welcoming and friendly. Bar scene is awesome- even though there's only 7 or so bars in town, we know how to keep it exciting and have a good time. And, we're in the mountains. Be prepared for extreme weather and walking uphill both ways to class. When it's nice, it's typical to take a hike or go swim at the river- outdoor activities are endless here. Nestled in the mountains, we are close to many rivers, lakes, and trails. Nothing beats living in the mountains- flannel and chacos are practically wardrobe requirements here and the town has a really cool laid-back hippie vibe. In my three years here, I have never met a single person who wasn't happy in Boone. This place is truly amazing...I love it here!!
