In Boone: A student's perspective PDF Print
Friday, 14 December 2007 17:52
The following editorial does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Aisling Broadcasting or GOBLUERIDGE.NET.

Lauren Ohnesorge and I are still out on the town, that is the hometown of the three-time National Championship Mountaineers! Although we have not quite won the game yet, it seems it is turning out in our favor tonight. With two minutes left in the third quarter, there are still plenty of Mountaineer fans cheering them on from the Boone bar scene. Delaware seems to be having trouble completing their passes tonight, making this game a bit easier for the Mountaineers. We are still holding strong though and playing harder than ever.


I am anxiously awaiting to see what will be popping in Boone after the game. Appalachian students completed their last day of exams Thursday, so many have returned home. Guaranteed if school was in session, the town would be absolutely crazy following the game, but regardless I believe there is going to be an extraordinary post-game celebration.


As an ASU student graduating in May, I am very proud of what this team has accomplished and the recognition that they have brought to our school. Some people look upon this negatively, but I feel that when my future employers see Appalachian State University on my resume, it will ignite a light in their head. We are certainly the little school that could.


To anyone considering attending Appalachian, our football team is not the only thing that is exceptional about this school. We boast an incredible academic program that produces thousands of graduates each year who continue onto fufilling careers.


For those that look at our winning football program as something that attracts too much attention to Boone, please look at this as an opportunity.
