Why Appalachian studies?
I did not grow up in Appalachia, but my family history is here, and I have always been interested in learning more about my roots. Appalachian Studies is a unique field because it incorporates so many disciplines and there are endless opportunities to create a personalized study. Appalachian Studies feels more community-driven and active than any other program I've been a part of.
Why did you choose Appalachian State University for your graduate education?
Coming from a small liberal-arts college, I was drawn to the small, close-knit department. There is a special relationship between students and faculty that might not be as strong in other departments. At Appalachian State University, I really feel like I am a part of something, and everyone helps everyone to succeed.
