I regret going to school here. I honestly believe Appalachian owes me money for all the time I wasted there. The campus is very nice, but the education I received there I do not value. I do not have any useable skills or knowledge to refer back to gained from college.

I loved my education at ASU. Years later I've finished a post-doc at Harvard and have been well-prepared for everything I've needed in my career and in my life. I'm still in contact with many of my professors and have lifelong friends that have been with me through the highs and lows of my adulthood. Boone is magical, and it's a place truly filled with people who love to be there. I've never regretted it for a second.

Both my son and daughter attend and it has been a great experience. The professors are challenging, yet fair and the campus is beautiful!

If your child has had a citation for underage drinking or marijuana possession do not disclose it to this university or any within the UNC system. They will have a target on their back. My sons room was searched because someone "thought" they smelled marijuana. When he demanded a search warrant they only got a warrant for his half of the room. There's something wrong if you smell something under the door and you don't search the entire room Granted many parents will find this comforting but in this day and age when marijuana is legal in so many states this smacks of targeting. After six weeks he is now on probation and is probably not going to finish out the school year Appalachian as 11th on the list of all colleges in the country for arrests for drug and alcohol use. This is the time when kids experiment and make it out alive for the most part. My son will be leaving the school for a better place in December This is a good kid who doesn't deserve this.
