Live Like a Mountaineer. Learn Like a Mountaineer. admissions.appstate.edu
From the moment you join the Appalachian community, you will be challenged to “discover why,” to thoughtfully consider contexts, and conduct and analyze research in and beyond your area of scholarship. Through leadership, research, entrepreneurship, service-learning, internships, community service and the arts, Appalachian students actively participate in activities that develop their intellectual, personal, and professional growth.
Collaborate with your mentors
Our low faculty to student ratio means your professors will also be your mentors. Our faculty will challenge you to learn new methods of leadership by participating in smallscale experiences that allow you to apply what you learn in the classroom and seek creative solutions. You will collaborate with faculty, staff and community leaders at home and abroad to enrich the world around you.
Go beyond going green
Find Your Community At Appalachian State University, you’ll find a special combination of people and place. Here, you will engage with our location in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina – one of the country’s most beautiful scenic locations – to strengthen your academic focus, discover your passions, enhance your leadership skills and take the next step in your life’s journey.
Appalachian’s leadership in sustainability is known nationally, and our commitment to sustainability is a tradition, not a trend. Our three-branched approach asks us to consider if actions are sustainable economically, environmentally, and equitably in relationship to our planet’s co-inhabitants. This commitment to research, creativity, innovation, and practice sets us apart – and is making a difference now and for our future.
