Scholarships: It's a hassle but once it's done it's worth it

3 College Junior

Majors: It's pretty good but it's really what you make of it and how much you put into it

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's great cause everything is right there and really close no matter what you may be looking for.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's pretty up in the air for this topic. You can really just find the crowd with drug people or no drugs.

4 College Junior

Weather: The weather is great and is never to cold or to hot. Although if it does snow everything gets shut down.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Housing is a problem with Greek life due to the zoning laws by the city are very strict. They are viewed as positive dud to the many interactions and events within the community

4 College Junior

Transportation: There is a huge transit transportation that runs great and is always on time

4 College Junior

Diversity: I feel as though we are very diverse but like any place in the world you can find your specific group that matches with your beliefs and morals. So that's what really determines your perscpective on it and if it is diverse. I am friends with every race and religion cause we are all people

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There a many blue lights on campus, and the safety on campus is good. However their are part of town that aren't and are concerning.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Academic wise I think ECU is above average. There haven't been many classes that I absolutely despise, and i think the workload is reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I have my own car so i just drive myself to place off-campus. And the bus that comes to my apartment complex is pretty much always on time and it comes often.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: You can get laptops from the front desk at the library or use a desk top in the library or one of the labs. However, its just more convenient to have your own.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants to choose from. Greenville probably has every restaurant and fast food place in the world actually.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: You have a lot to choose from for nightlight. You can go downtown, sorority or fraternity houses, pool parties, and house parties. If you did't like going out before, you will after you go to East Carolina University.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of restaurants and places to shop. The traffic system is a little crazy though.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of off campus apartments to pick from, and most of them are pretty nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms have quality room and bathrooms.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The only thing not average about our weather is it probably rains more than most campuses. During spring and fall it is really nice to walk around and relax on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our school has a lot of pride, so any game you go too their is a full student section and everyone is pumped for the game.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is diversity when it comes to religion, political belief and sexual orientation. However the campus I attend school has a greater percentage of Caucasian students than all the other races combined.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is affordable for decent size. Living close to campus is pricey and, in my opinion, not worth it because the houses are so old and the landlords don't repair anything properly. They fix things so they will break again. Living in an apartment complex is decent, but finding a house like on Stratford Rd is your best option.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Too strict to be honest. If you can die for your country at 18, then at least give yourself a drink without the hassle!

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Nothing but restaurants. Not much for parks, but we're close to the beach! Our museums are...poor and we don't have many recreational options aside from alcohol to help pass the time.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: We need better light-bulbs on our campus and more campus lights. And why is our campus metered parking have no lights???

Safety first.

The quality and enthusiasm of the professors who care about their students is what attracts and retains students who could have gone to larger and more prestigious schools. Greenville is quite charming and has such good local food that most skeptics love the area, or at least ECU, by the time they graduate. Although the campus police are friendly, ECU is quite strict, perhaps in an effort to downplay the “party school” reputation. The strictness, however, contributes to student safety and helps reduce the drug presence on campus. Alcohol is a problem for some students, and the clubs are tempting, but the counseling center can help students with their problems. ECU’s computer resources are excellent, and the athletic facilities are better than the teams’ records. ECU’s most enjoyable facilities are the green areas, especially because the weather here is so pleasant—crazy, but pleasant.

Whether living on or off campus, students should join organizations to maximize their college involvement and build leadership experience for their resume. With ECU’s diverse student population, new students can easily find an organization, Greek or non-Greek, that is for them. ECU is reputed to have one of the highest concentrations of pretty girls anywhere, and the guys are good-looking overall, too. The Southern hospitality creates a welcoming social atmosphere. ECU has been through sports losses and administrative shake-ups in the past, but some of the political damage seems to be getting straightened out. So, as usual, ECU students are optimistic. They will continue to be easy-going, yet serious and balanced, fun-loving learners.
