Instagram Student Takeover Week


Scheduled weekly student takeover of Appalachian’s official Instagram account. Are you an involved student? Think you have what it takes to represent Appalachian State through amazing pictures? Then apply to be considered for our Instagram #AppStateStudentTakeover.


What does it mean to be first for teaching? It means we put kids first!

We teach the teachers who fight for every child. We start by requiring every education student to take courses in social justice and diversity (from race to class to ability – and every thing in between). We teach students how to make classrooms inclusive learning spaces – how to shatter stigmas and stereotypes. We challenge our students to serve the campus and the community.
