One of the admissions representatives from Appalachian stopped by for a chat and gave me some updated information about the school:
• A new Health Sciences Building is opening for Fall 2018
• 1/4 of App students study abroad
• A team from App placed very high in the solar car competition
• Fermentation Sciences is a notable major. Students learn how to brew beer.
• The school has about 10 fraternities and 10 sororities. The sororities have a dedicated dorm near the campus, in lieu of individual houses. The fraternities do not have any sort of housing, but typically live off campus in one of the many nearby apartments.
Middle 50% of SAT Scores for admitted students is 1130 to 1300. 23 to 28 for ACT scores. 3.9 to 4.4 for weighted GPA.
