I really enjoyed the close knit feel of Appalachian State University. The students and faculty were all very nice and made me feel welcome. The environment really made it feel like everyone was part of a big family. I feel that Boone, North Carolina would be the perfect location to attend college. The restaurants in Boone are great and there are many things to do close by. The over all feel of the town is very much like the one in which I have grown up. My parents live about two and a half hours away from Boone, which I feel is a perfect distance. It's close enough so that I can still come home on weekends. I love the weather and the campus style. Appalachian also has a good study abroad program, which is something I've always been interested in. Over all, Appalachian is the perfect college for me.
