One of my favorite parts of Appalachian is the atmosphere. Everyone seems like a family. I visited on one of the open house days and there was an entire hallway set up with booths about the different clubs and organizations. The buildings are fairly close together, so I feel like I'd definitely be safe walking from class to class. Football is the leading sport at Appalachian. I love watching football games with a group of friends on Friday nights. Snowboarding and skiing are popular activities as well and I cannot wait to try them.
