I try to live without regrets but after 5 years here I feel like I missed out on a huge part of life. You won't get the traditional college experience here; this is good and bad… but the social experiences here are just miserable. You a guy?? Good luck with the love life. The girls here are either HUGE, Lesbians, or taken [because they all grew up in hick towns and think you need to be engaged at 20]. And socializing in general; there's not much to do around Boone, the night life is pretty piss-poor. The biggest problem is the people; don't believe the hype that Appy is Happy. It may be full of weed; but its full of assholes too. You get kids who grew up in podunks who think they're big shots because they were big fish in their little puddles… and it's just sad. This place is soaked in pretension and I CAN'T WAIT TO LEAVE.
commentYall gotta be smokin that same weed that we apparently not happy appys are. Yea some of us are rednecks but your in the south dumbasses! if yall wanna call us assholes yall go back up where yall live (Up North) cuz yall all damn yankees get outta our hick town. By the way in hicktowns nobody likes lesbians so yea you need to get your info right.
responseI really have to agree with his comment, "I feel like I've missed out on a huge chunk of life." I absolutely concur. ASU was just so redneck, I really apologize for calling people names, but there's simply no other word. Just the type of student here left so much to be desired. I also saw the "huge fish in a little pond" type here that thought they were really something in their little small towns. Just redneck thru and thru.
