Visit Appalachian - First Fridays

Launch virtual tourFirst Fridays!


Visit Appalachian State University and learn more about the School of Graduate Studies during one of our "First Friday" Open House events! Our First Friday Open House is a great way for prospective students* to meet faculty, tour campus, and learn more about financial aid, scholarships, admissions, and what graduate student life at Appalachian is really like. 

Although we have suspended campus-based First Friday events for the semester, you can still get all of the information listed above by participating in our next Virtual First Friday events. See dates and registration link below. We look forward to seeing you!
