My review

The Good:

There is not a way to summarize APP. Great atmosphere, challenging but not too overwhelming, great people, great little town in the mountains, lots to do...

The Bad:

Walking to class in the snow from time to time can be a bit trying

Would I do it again?

Yes, Could not have had much of a better college experience at App. Wish I would have taken longer than 4 years to get my degree. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Another awesome thing is campus is gorgeous!

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? Good grades...don't think of it as a safety school

I wish I knew to take my time in college and not rush to get out

Preparation for the workforce

Time needed to find a job post-graduation 1-6 months
