A Year in the Arts

2014 Pitchfork Music Festival - Day 2
Colin Moore, A&E Editor Cloud Nothings, “Here and Nowhere Else” The space between the opening guitar strums on “Here and Nowhere Else” and its final, cathartic chorus is only half-an-hour. The album’s breakneck pace is a straightforward adrenaline rush on first pass, but Cloud Nothings’ fourth record is an immensely rewarding collection of songs. The album’s opening duo of pop songs suddenly ratch ...

Senior Goodbye: College is for learning more than just facts

At the end of three and a half years of full course loads, extracurriculars and too many all-nighters, it is not the diploma in-hand that represents all I have learned. My personal growth during my time here at Appalachian State University encompasses more learning than one degree ever could. As a graduate of this amazing university, I am a product of many hours spent working, studying, stressing out and embracing the full college experience. I am also a product of s ...

Senior Goodbye: Lessons learned outside of the classroom

"Avenue Q" 10th Year Anniversary Performance - Curtain Call
Seniors, we’re graduating – can you even believe it? After my four years in Boone I can confidently say this place has shaped all of us into great people. I’m proud to say I’ll soon be an Appalachian State University alumna. This school means so much to me and everyone here.

Senior Goodbye: Opportunities present themselves once in a lifetime

2014 Paralympic Winter Games - Previews: Day - 1
Everyone goes to college to learn more and find their place in this world. We learn new things in lectures and in practice, about ourselves as we live on our own for the first time and are responsible for our well-being, and what kind of path we want to take after college. I found all of this at The Appalachian, and it all started my freshman year in October 2010 when I stepped into Room 217 of Plem ...

Senior Goodbye: To all the friends I’ve made, you’ll always be with me

It’s come time for me to pronounce farewells. Like it or not, Commencement is a mere handful of cursory assignments away. Looking back, I was always aware that this time would come—mostly due to perpetual reminders from well-meaning family members. Unfortunately, I had a difficult time avoiding this kind of premature nostalgia these past four years. Much at this collegiate stage is made of what will be rather than what is; the prevailing thought is that ...

Senior Goodbye: In college and life, taking risks is worth it

Author Alexander McCall Smith walks thro
Just eight weeks after beginning my college journey, I made the decision to transfer from a small, liberal arts college to study journalism at a much larger university. I chose Appalachian State University, and I committed. I didn’t know very many people, and I wasn’t even sure I wanted to be a journalist. I’ve not always felt incredibly attached to Appalachian, and I’ve wondered how things might be different if I had taken a different path – but I don’t think I ...

Senior Goodbye: Mistakes happen, just be sure to correct them

2011 Rapids Jam Music Festival - Day 2
Appalachian State University has been my home for quite some time. I love it here, and I cherish the majority of the memories. But these six years have been quite a drag. That’s right, six years. I’m not just a super senior. I’m a super-duper-senior. With an unnecessary amount of experience under my belt, I can bestow sound advice to help those that are already here or are thinking about coming here. Let me first start by mentioning the elephant in the room. Why ...
