Appalachian State University, Junior

Why did you choose your school and what makes it better than the rest?

I grew up in Raleigh and wanted a completely different change of scenery. People in Boone are just genuinely more nice. At first I didn’t know what to expect out of Greek Life and Football season here but I absolutely fell in love with it after my first year. I attend every game I possibly can and absolutely love to tailgate.

I’m in Alpha Omicron Pi and that basically takes up all of my time because of the numerous events we have going on all year long.


If you had to choose one social media to use for the year, what would it be and why?

Probably instagram, just because I love editing photos and taking cute ones. Also their new story feature is pretty cool and I use it quite a lot.

I’m a social work major with a minor in sociology.
