ASU is the college for me. If you are into bright lights and big cities, I would not recommend ASU to you. I have made numerous friends with students and professors. I attended several colleges for a semester here and there trying to find my grove. The moment I stepped on ASU campus, I immediately knew ASU is the place I belong and was looking for.

The history and Appalachian Studies/Appalachian Music departments and professors are awesome. Where can you attend college and study and listen to the great traditional music of the mountains? From country music to bluegrass; ASU has it all. Not counting the wonderful bands of country/bluegrass music and folk dances that ASU offers. I think the reason some students give ASU a bad rating, it is not in their culture and blood to be in the mountains. They are right when they say there is not a lot to do, but it all depends on what you are looking for. Too me, getting out in these mountains, smelling the clean mountain air, hike, fish. swim in the dams, skiing, what more to life is there?! I have taken some challenging classes, and the results of my work was A's. I guess my love for the mountains and the natural surrounding makes me feel at home. I now have purchased land in Boone and built a log cabin. Life can't be be any better. Several of my close friends that I brought to Boone for a visit, loved the college and the surroundings, and did not want to leave this place. My best very best friend would like to attend ASU also. ASU is like all colleges.You have your party and hippie crowd, but its not me and I don't have to hang around them.

The new rule at ASU, if you drop more than FOUR classes during your tenure,(not counting drop/add week) you will permanently be removed as a student, and cannot return to ASU. At other colleges, I have seen so many students drop classes, and its ridiculous. I hope to be a professor at ASU in a few years.

The work is always challenging, and I love spending hours at the new 45 million Belk library. There is a new student Union Center, and a new large athletic facilities with several Olympic swimming pools. ASU is always building new buildings or remodeling some centers.
