Encourage Your Student to Participate in Welcome Week!

Welcome Week

Welcome to APP 2017 begins with Welcome Weekend! Our goal during Welcome Weekend is for your student to become more comfortable at Appalachian, to make new friends, to have fun, and to start weaving themselves into the fabric of student life at Appalachian.

Welcome Weekend activities serve as an extension of your student’s summer orientation. Encourage them to take advantage of Welcome Weekend and Welcome to APP events throughout their first semester to ensure a great start at Appalachian!

Appol Corps (APPalachian Orientation Leader Corps) is a group of over 200 ASU student volunteers who serve the University as orientation leaders during Welcome Weekend. Appol Corps leaders guide new students through the various activities that are offered during Welcome Weekend. Your student’s Appol Corps leaders will introduce themselves to students during their residence hall meetings on Friday night (August 18th) and then come back to get them on Saturday morning (August 19th) at 12pm to begin a weekend of awesome activities.

AppSync is your student’s one-stop online campus connector to getting involved on campus. Every member of our campus has access to AppSync. Your student can explore the University’s 400+ clubs and organizations, connect with current organization members and find out when and where they meet.
