SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT. . .
Appalachian State University was kind enough to update us about their 2011-12 freshmen student body. Listed below is a recap of some information that might be helpful as you chart your course.
14,737 freshmen applications were received for
the 2011-12 school year. This is the second highest total in the history of ASU.
3,000 freshmen accepted the offer to attend ASU for the 2011-12 school year. This is the largest freshmen class ever.
Eighty percent of the 2011-12 freshman class was selected from the pool of students who applied by the first deadline date of 12/01/10. Therefore, with fewer spots available, only students with the highest qualifications were selected from the second and third deadline dates.
The profile for those students who were accepted and have chosen to attend ASU is as follows:
Avg GPA: 3.94 (weighted)
Avg SAT: 1141 (math & critical reading scores combined)
Avg ACT Composite: 25
In addition, ASU reports, the Office of Admissions considered more than just the above numbers. They looked for an increased diversity among the student body and spent considerable time comparing students from within the same high school just to ensure equitable admission decisions for students who performed comparably.
is usually scheduled during the
month of December. Information about the upcoming test date will be announced in the Raider Review, on our website, and via afternoon announcments.
What is the ASVAB test?
Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is the official name.
Each year the ASVAB is offered to all 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students at Reagan. Typically it is given during the month of December and is held in the Reagan auditorium.
The ASVAB is a career exploration exam that helps students identify strengths and will hopefully guide them to a satisfying work enviroment following high school graduation. The ASVAB in no way obligates them to join a branch of the US Armed Services. As soon as a testing date is established for the 2012-13 school year, it will be announced and sign-up sheets will be located on the table outside of Student Services.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT. . What do the clothes you're wearing say about you? One of the challenges of growing up is figuring out your place in the world. The clothes you wear can play a role in shaping how others view you and even how you view yourself. This has prompted some schools to require uniforms as a way to shift students from thinking about what they are wearing to what they're doing.
That's just how many servicemembers view their uniforms: the first layer of equipment designed to help them complete a task. They don't think about what to put on; they think about what to do next.
Some people think joining the Military and stepping into a uniform means a surrender of personal identity. But that's not true. Servicemembers are able to balance work and play while maintaining their individuality - in and out of uniform.
