    It was originally opened in the ‘80s with a different name (H’Appy’s), but opened as Legends in the late 80s (‘88? ‘89?). Quite a bit longer than “nearly 20 years”.

    The leadership at ASU has no idea what Legends has done to establish App as a superb developer of talent for the music industry. I got my education from Legends and APPS, not from the classroom. Shame on them for the total disregard of an unbelievable avenue for educating the students. This is why I won’t donate a dollar to ASU.

    This is so perfectly symbolic of everything at AppState in recent years. Complete and utter structural failures, inside and out.

    Once hidden behind a veneer of normalcy, the cracks are beginning to become increasingly apparent: classrooms falling apart with broken equipment, offices with so little staff they’re barely able to function, faculty and staff leaving in droves, over-crowded classrooms, an administration that refuses to engage with faculty and staff in any meaningful or productive way. Go walk around campus and the physical deterioration is glaringly apparent, I nearly fell down the stairs going up to the skywalk by tripping on busted out concrete steps in the Rivers St. parking deck.

    The really important thing though is that Hickory is happening! (even though absolutely no attempt was made to solicit input from faculty and staff…you know, the people expected to work there.)

    Oh! And the cops just got a bunch of Tesla’s, so that’s cool, right?!
