Adventures in Boone: Tour of App. State

On Saturday morning Chris took me on a tour of Appalachian State. I am still amazed at how BIG everything is! Having myself graduated from a small school, it's hard to imagine college life with soo many buildings, books and things to do. The library is amazing. And don't even get me started on the student center! It's too many levels to count, boast multiple ballrooms, auditoriums, galleries, and coffee stands galore. I can't imagine what it would be like to have a bus route on campus, lol, or a humongous football stadium, or (multiple) Olympic sized pools for that matter! I can see how it would be very hard to keep focused on one's studies with so many things to do...however, with a library like that, I take it back(there are even multiple fireplaces in the library!). The picture below is just the entrance to the library. The statue is called "Dance of Learning," and was just one of the many peices of artwork abounding throughout App's campus.
I was told taking a picture with this guy is a must for any respectable App State goer...
This is where Chris spent his last year at App-the view was amazing!
It's too bad the winters are so harsh; I'm not sure how happy I would be to brave the icy elements daily. But, if your into bundling up for blistering winds and black ice, then I'd totally recommend Appalachian!
