Club Expo

Held at the beginning of each semester, this is an ideal opportunity to learn about Appalachian’s many student clubs and organizations, meet the student club leaders and members, and find out when the next meeting or event will be held.


There are 3 different levels of sports at Appalachian.

  1. Division I Varsity Sports: App State competes in NCAA Division I varsity sports through 9 men and 9 women’s teams. To compete on a certain sport, students should contact the coach for tryout information.

Study Outside of Boone

Appalachian provides students the opportunity to study in different locations to explore different cultures and bring the classroom to the real world. Educational opportunities can be as short as a week or as long as two years! Some experiences are offered through academic departments (watch emails and university announcements) where others are more formalized through offices like Study Abroad/International Education.

Student Research

Students who understand how discoveries are made in their chosen fields are well-prepared to address the unsolved problems of the future. The Office of Student Research supports and promotes learning through mentored research experiences with faculty and other national and international scholars and professionals.
