2014 Appalachian College Student Survey

The Center for Appalachian Studies at Appalachian State University has wrapped up a year-long survey of college students from across the Appalachian Region. The goal of this project was to ask college students in Appalachia to take the lead in deciding how to build a sustainable future for the region, including student perspectives on the region's outstanding assets, needs, and career options. A final report will be available online in mid-June 2015. In the meantime, please visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/appstudies for weekly releases of interesting information from the survey.
