Group Visits to Campus
The College Access Partnerships are committed to building strategic partnerships to strengthen our local communities through college access and success. A campus visit is great way to see what college is all about.
Would you like your class to visit a North Carolina University?
If so, we would love to host your visit to the Appalachian State University campus. We have several different campus tours available based on your group's ages and interests, including: scavenger hunts, science demonstrations, meet with App State University students and faculty, visit the bookstore, the student union, the dining halls, the Turchin Center, and much more.
