This is too good to pass over. Appalachian State has a promotional video to attract students with these words always in the forefront… HOT HOT HOT.”We would never create something like that to attract students,” says Dr. Lorin Baumhover Chief of Staff for the Office of the Chancellor at Appalachian State. “It’s horrible.” Baumhover maintains the video was created as a kind of joke, to be shared with alumni and friends of the university. He says about a year ago, someone posted it on the Web, and they’ve been getting queries ever since. “I wish someone could put a stake through it,” says Baumhover.
