Welcome New Mountaineers!

What is Welcome to App?
Welcome to App is an extension of your summer orientation and is geared toward helping you learn your way around campus, making friends, and learning more about the university before classes start. The schedule includes programs that will help you feel comfortable and confident about life in and out of the classroom.  Many of the events are just about making friends and having fun!

When does Welcome to App start? 

Welcome to App starts the day after your assigned residence hall move-in at 1pm.  Appol Corps Orientation Leaders will come by your residence hall floor at 1pm to meet with you and the other new stundets living on your residence hall floor.  Move in days and times are based on the residence hall you are living in.  Refer to your email from University Housing for your assigned move in day and time.  

What is an Appol Corp Orientation Leader?
APPalachian Orientation Leader Corps (Appol Corps) are current students who work for Orientation and serve as Welcome to App guides during Welcome to App each August. These student leaders welcome new students to Appalachian and assist in their transition to college life through fun and engaging activities.
