Our goal is to keep you informed on recruitment events taking place at Appalachian State University and the surrounding communities. Watch this recording for an introduction to what the Peace Corps is all about.

Campus Visits
A Peace Corps Recruiter visits Appalachian State University and the surrounding community several times a year. While in the area, the recruiter holds general information sessions, attends an AppState sponsored career fair, and conducts interviews.

Through interrelated coursework, hands-on experience, and professional development, you'll build competencies in training and experience in a work sector, foreign language skills, intercultural competence, and professional leadership development.
