            LOVED the psych program at ASU!YYEnjoyed every bit of Appalachian State! The professors were challenging, yet very helpful and encouraging. Dr. Beck taught me how to study 'correctly' after receiving my first C on a test and I'll always be grateful for him! The career center has a lot of resources for students and they sponsor job fairs and resume building workshops, which are offered quite frequently. It's also absolutely beautiful in Boone! I forgot to mention, it's very affordable. Definitely recommend App State!
