Organization Overview

The Appalachian has been Appalachian State University’s student-run news organization since 1934. We publish both in print and online, promote our content and engage with our audience through social media, and send out a twice-weekly email newsletter during the academic year. We are the recipients of more than 40 prestigious and competitive state, regional and national awards during the 2022-2023 academic year for our content, including reporting, photography, advertising, design, video, podcasts, and more.

We strive to provide fair and accurate news for the campus community; to inform, entertain and create a forum for ideas; to provide an outlet for readers’ opinions; to be a champion for student, faculty, staff, and community interests; and to remain editorially independent, exercise and ensure First Amendment rights. The Appalachian is student-managed and student-run, meaning student editors, managers and staffers are responsible for all content in the publication.
