    idea using the skills they have gained from my course Q What aspects of your Appalachian education best prepared you for your career A The experiences I gained through being an active participant in my classes This includes working with the local community representing the university at competitions and conferences as well as having a close working relationship with my classmates and professors Q Why did you choose Appalachian as a prospective student A I initially chose Appalachian State because of my experiences with athletic camps that were held by the university during the summer As I looked closer I was drawn in by the Construction Management program I have always had a love for emerging technology I initially majored in Construction Management in college and through that I discovered Technology Education After learning that I could use my skills to educate instead of only in the business world I changed my major to Education Teaching is important to me because I realized how much I didn t know When this hit me it made me want to share what I could with those that would listen so that they wouldn t come to the same realization I did I specifically wanted to educate student about technology I hope that I can allow students to see technology as a tool and not just a form of entertainment Q Why should today s students interested in your field choose Appalachian as opposed to another college or university A App State has high standards in the Reich College of Education This ensures that students will gain the skills necessary to prepare them for a job in education after successfully completing the course of study Apply Visit Info Program Career and Technical Education BS Technology Engineering and Design Education Students in this program

  • Appalachian State University / Alumnus Profile: Chris Eubanks ’13
    independent research and having three years of research before coming into a graduate program was very helpful Also having many possibilities to apply for different grants helped increase my scientific writing Eubanks said The Department of Chemistry was very supportive I knew almost all the faculty Eubanks said They respected me as a person knowing what classes I was taking being interested in possible career paths and always being free to help with general questions or letters of recommendations The advice was always helpful and there were a couple of times when I was worried about graduate school during my senior year and I had faculty help me with advice that got them through graduate school Appalachian is very good at professor student interactions he said At a larger school or a school with a graduate school you will not see professors very much and it is hard for an undergraduate to know professors more than by name Eubanks also praised the Department of Chemistry s weekly seminars as great for networking I was able to go to lunch with the seminar speakers a few times and I know of at least two who I have met again here at Duke and they remembered me he said The importance of networking cannot be overstated and with the ability to start early as an undergraduate was very helpful Apply Visit Info Programs Chemistry BS Marketing and Business The Chemistry BS Marketing and Business degree is ideal for students wanting to go into pharmaceutical sales In addition to chemistry and other science courses this major includes business courses through Appalachian s Walker College of Business Chemistry BS Individually Designed The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry Individually Designed degree lets students create their own specialty by combining chemistry with other disciplines either
