Atmosphere

Appalachian State’s rural location means that a Mountaineers football game is the hottest party in town. Students hear start tailgating at the crack of dawn, which features a delicious spread of beer and food. One way that the Appalachian State tailgate differs from many other colleges is that there is not a lot of Greek life. This, however, doesn’t mean that there aren’t a lot of great parties to join in on as Southern hospitality can be found throughout the ASU campus.

The tailgate lots here feature a plethora of delectable foods including fried turkey, fried fish, ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and cornbread. People in Boone are very friendly and will be happy to share their good home country fixings with you. Make sure to come with an appetite as the food here is sure to leave you feeling full.
