Cooking Class with App State Head Chef Jules Bott

This event is pre-recorded and shared to the Taste of Home page of our Family Weekend website.

Do you know what makes Appalachian Campus Dining so special? Many universities outsource dining services, but we have our very own team of highly trained chefs, lead by head Chef Jules Bott. The culinary team prides itself on creating unique, fresh, and tasty dishes for the Appalachian community. Chef Jules is excited to share some of these recipes with you.

Discover Art at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts!

The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts continues to share exhibition programming with campus and community, offering access to work by a wide range of contemporary visual artists in a virtual format, along with online resources such as gallery videos, ARTtalks and virtual study guides. During Family Weekend 2021, we are pleased to offer this virtual tour in order to recreate what it might feel like to tour the galleries as part of an actual visit to the Turchin Center. You may also join us in person on Thursdays and Saturdays 10:00 –
6:00 pm and Fridays from 12:00 – 8:00 pm. Thank you for your interest and we hope you enjoy
