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 and how do I know which Appol Corps group I am in? 

Appol Corps Time starts the day after your move-in.  All new students will receive an email with your assigned Appol Corps orientation group meeting day and time.  Appol Corps Orientation Leaders will meet with your assigned group outside of your residence hall.  

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.


Can't wait to see you at Welcome to App 2022!!!
