Appalachian State University

This statue of Daniel Boone is located on the campus of Appalachian State University in the city that bears his name. With an enrollment as big as the town (both are around 15,000), it is safe to say Boone, NC has the look and feel of a college town. ASU's academic and athletic programs are certainly well-regarded -- but talk to students who go to ASU and many will say it was the setting that really attracted them to Boone -- nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains with ski slopes, hiking trails, the Parkway, and all the scenic beauty and recreational activities offered in the High Country. It's indeed a beautiful setting -- and Appy State and the city of Boone have a personality all their own.
