Jayne Lybrand Dowdy, Assistant Director and Military Liaison
Greetings from Boone, North Carolina, the home of Appalachian State University. As you make that all important decision about college, please visit our University in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There is no better way to get to know a college, and it’s so important that it “feels right”—after all, you’ll spend several years of learning, growing and making memories that will help build a strong foundation for the rest of your life. When you walk the campus, you’ll know which college is the right fit for you. You just might fall in love with Appalachian as I did on my first visit to the High Country.In addition to serving as admissions counselor for all of the counties listed, I also work with our perspective military students. Serving our military men and women is very meaningful to me. Appalachian is dedicated to providing the best possible service to all students, including our service men and women. I am here to help in any way.
What students should know about AppalachianDo you want a more personal academic experience in college, one where your professor will know you by name? Or would you like to help one of your professors with research in your chosen field? Or perhaps you really want to study abroad while in college. It can all happen here at Appalachian. We behave like a private school in many ways, and our students get the benefit. From amazing opportunities to work side by side with professors to incredible study abroad opportunities, we really do give students the best of both a small and large institution. As a proud alum, it is really great to see how the University has evolved, while keeping a very special family atmosphere. I love that about App!
