Founded as Watauga Academy, in a borrowed building with broken windows, no door, and fifty-three grammar-school students, Appalachian State University was once known as the “State Teacher's College.”
Today, Appalachian is home to over 18,000 students, enrolling approximately 2,500 yearly in the Reich College of Education. The college provides courses and support to students in teacher preparation programs, not only in the Reich College of Education, but also in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Fine and Applied Arts and Health Sciences.
Teachers channel a student's desire to make a change in the world. They inspire a thirst for knowledge and a hunger to learn.
