Appalachian State University
Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern North Carolina, Appalachian State University has built a national reputation for providing outstanding academics. With a student/faculty ratio of 17:1 and an average class size of 24, faculty members are able to take a personal interest in student progress, often becoming mentors, advisers, and friends - even tennis partners. That can only happen in a close-knit community.

Lees-McRae College
Lees-McRae College is an academic community where classroom learning is meant to foster connections with life outside the classroom. To that end, we offer significant opportunities for service learning and we are one of the few colleges to ask all freshman to complete a community service project. Our commitment - our mission - is to educate the whole person...mind, body, and spirit, and we hope it shows.
